A video was posted on YouTube showing scenes from old Disney animated movies. The compiled video highlighted similarities from one Disney classic to another including Cinderella and Snow White.

The compilation video was entitled “Walt Disney Recycled Animations Scenes.” The creators of the video claimed that Disney animators often recycle footages from animated classics. They also added, “They would draw over existing animation cells to make new scenes with characters with similar designs, characteristics, and movements.”

According to a report from The Independent, Disney animators would use a technique called “rotoscoping.” This would explain why Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” have ballroom dancing styles that are too similar from one another. Not to mention they also have similar shapes of dresses! The creators of the compiled video also explained that because of this technique, the bear dancing “Jungle Book”, Baloo, did the same steps as what Little John did in “Robin Hood.”

The flawless piecing of the clips from Disney classics showed they were indeed frame by frame a match. In the video, we can see that a scene from “Snow White” together with the seven dwarfs is shown to be very identical with the dancing scene from “Robin Hood.” The video also featured excerpts from “Beauty and the Beast” and “The AristoCats.”

Meanwhile, this is no longer a secret since Disney has been known to reuse animation from one iconic movie to be able to save on costs, according to TIME.

The report went on saying that a similar video was also posted in 2009 claiming Disney has been making use of the rotoscoping technique. The video also featured a lot of Robin Hood similarities from other Disney animated films.
