  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Trailers can be seen here.

See Spark Plug Entertainment for their American counterpart, and Dingo Pictures for their Limited Animation counterpart.

They distribute Sonic X, Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, The Super Mario Bros Super Show and Little Lulu in Brazil.

  • Idiot Ball: In an episode of Little Princess School, the princesses found the spinning wheel from Sleeping Beauty. One by one, their reaction to it is "Hey, what's this?" and poking themselves on the spindle, even after seeing the others fall asleep. One of the adults even pokes herself on the spindle just because. The only one who isn't carrying the Idiot Ball is, for some reason, Cindy.
  • Inconsistent Dub: The characters in the English dub of the first Little Cars video were given localized names. After that, they simply stuck with the original Brazilian names.
  • Informed Ability: Hime in Little Princess School is supposed to be a really good sword-fighter, but we never see her fight.
  • The Mockbuster: The company specializes in these.
  • The Musical: They've turned The Little Cars into a live musical show.
  • No Flow in CGI
  • Palette Swap: Many examples in The Little Cars.
  • Punny Name: Many.
  • Real Song Theme Tune: "Window to Nowhere" by Angra is used as the theme for Gladiformers.
  • Slasher Smile: Their 2D animation is prone to making characters look malevolent when they should just look annoyed.
  • Shout-Out/To Shakespeare: "My kingdom for a snack!" in one episode of Little Princess School.
  • Video Brinquedo Physics: Unintentional.
  • Youtube Poop: Not a major source, but Video Brinquedo movies have been making some Youtube Poop appearances in recent times. Walrus Guy, a major figure in Youtube Poop lore, seemed to enjoy using Ratatoing material and was eventually convinced by his fans to poop Little Cars and Little Bee.
