Mustache Maniacs Film Co.: The Visual Dictionary contains examples of the following tropes.
  • Great Big Book of Everything: Sort of, at least when it comes to Mustache Maniacs Film Co.'s library of content. It doesn't cover everything (and it has fallen out of date since 2010), but at its time of release, it covered nearly every production past, present, and future.
  • Product Placement: A very obvious example is on the last page of this book, which is simply a list of then-current Mustache Maniacs Film Co. products. Even the page itself is referred to as "Also From Mustache Maniacs Film Co." in the table of contents.
  • Running Gag: Throughout the book, there are small pointers for details in the images with descriptions of what these items are. Some of these are completely obvious (like a bat, for example), with the pointers themselves noting that these are being pointed out just to fill up space on the page.
  • School Play: Featured in the book are none other than the Cornerstone Thespian Society plays Kilroy Was Here!Jolly Roger and the Pirate Queen, and Mystery at Shady AcresThe Nifty Fifties is also mentioned on the page about never-released films.

Trivia Edit

  • This book was created to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Mustache Maniacs Film Co.
  • This book is modeled after Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary. This book took inspiration from that book's indication of details, lengthy descriptions, and clean photography.
  • While this book was always intended to be constantly updated and revised, the second edition wasn't released until 2016, 7 years later.
