YMMV: Video Brinquedo
  • Accidental Innuendo: The Little Bees keep going on about their stingers, and one of the Little Cars says that the Champion gets her motor running.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: The mouth of Amanda from Little & Big Monsters defaults to a smile regardless of what her eyes are doing, so she always looks like she's either on drugs or cooking up some diabolical scheme.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "Window to Nowhere" from the Gladiformers films. It also helps that it's a Real Song Theme Tune by a well-regarded Power Metal band.
  • Designated Villain: Madam Drastic in Little Princess School. She's supposed to be evil, but all she does is try to keep the girls from skipping school.
  • Ear Worm: "Cindy, Bianca, Hime, Iria, and Zade. All of them go to Princess School so they can learn to be beautiful..."
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop:
    • The Little Panda Fighter teaches us that it's okay to lie, cheat, and steal in order to get money and women.
    • Ratatoing teaches us that the way to be a heroic restaurateur is to steal all your ingredients.
    • The Little Cars teaches us that gambling is a worthwhile endeavor.
  • Ham and Cheese: J. David Brimmer (aka Odion) is CLEARLY having fun playing Polaris in The Little Panda Fighter.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Polaris in The Little Panda Fighter.
  • Memetic Molester: This seems to be Video Brinquedo's interpretation of the Frog Prince. In his eponymous movie he's a slimy Manipulative Bastard who acts like he's entitled to have the princess just because he helped her out of a situation he caused. In Little Princess School he tries to rape the princesses' teacher.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Greaster Car from The Little Cars Easter special. This automotive abomination has a white ghostly body with bright red eyes, a voice normally heard from psychopathic man-children, and appears in the dead of night by a lake that isn't really there.
  • Sequelitis: The company has been pumping out a lot of sequels to The Little Cars which are even worse than the first one.
  • So Bad, It's Good: It greatly varies, but there are some truly funny things about their films as a whole.
  • Special Effects Failure: They're pretty much this to the entirety of the full CG animated movie genre. In other words, they're the polar opposite to Pixar.
    • A stand-out example happens in The Little Cars. The villain cheats at the race by dropping some tacks on the road, causing one of the racers to spin out of control. The race ends with him not paying attention and running over his own trap. However, the animators forgot to add the tacks to the scene where he drops them, so what happens instead is that the camera randomly cuts to a shot of the villain's taillights before one of the other racers suddenly spins off the track for no reason. The race ends with the villain running over some tacks that just happened to be sitting on the track.
  • Uncanny Valley: The animation is very stiff and this is most noticeable on characters' faces. Even though they're not supposed to look like humans, they still don't look right.
    • The princesses in Little Princess School never stop smiling. Even if they're in danger.
    • The extras, announcer, and Satellite Love Interest in The Little Panda Fighter have human figures with crude bear heads and no textures. They look pretty creepy. Polaris's abs are similarly unnerving.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: You'd never expect to say that in regards to some of the 4Kids actors appearing in the English dubs. Most notable are Wayne Grayson, Veronica Taylor, Lisa Ortiz, the late Maddie Blaustein, and Dan Green! However, their Ratatoing dub also has Vibe Jones, Urd from Ah! My Goddess!
