    no Disney I believe does not own Pixar, actually they split up after working together extensively.
    They couldn`t reach an agreement on their contract so they went their own merry way. Finding Nemo was I believe one of the last Disney-Pixar movies.

    Geo, according to my understanding they`re still merged.

    "Today, Edwin Catmull serves as president of the combined Disney-Pixar animation studios, and John Lasseter serves as the studios` Chief Creative Officer. Catmull reports to Robert Iger as well as Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook. Lasseter, who has greenlight authority on all new films, also reports to Iger as well as consulting with Roy Disney."

    Wikipedia is always right.

    ok so robin hood is mainly made from the action scenes of the jungle book and aristocats...hmm.
    im from nottingham (robin hood land) and im not surprised...some films just arnt worth making new sequences for (though i do love robin hood naturally!)

    USFEmogirl-you also have to keep in mind that the majority of these films that have copied scenes are the older disney movies, made within the first few decades of animation. Every individual cell was handdrawn, whereas now computers are used for alot of the work. Notice how the newer generation of Disney movies weren`t featured, like the Lion King, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, etc. Production teams have more time and technology to use on more original drawings. The only `new` Disney film shown was Beauty and the Beast, and the dance scene was only copied due to a time crunch. I don`t think profits really had any substantial influence.

    my only argument to this is that they all came out in relatively the same time frame, that is how they danced. the only exception is snow white, but I`m sure thats a typical dance.

    the funny part, which I don`t have sound so I don`t know if its mentioned, the voice of little john and baloo is the same guy, as well as the voice of the girl aristocat and maid marian. phil harris (baloo/little john) is also in the aristocats.

    I`ll also piggy back off kharrut`s response, the whole individual cell drawing takes a LOT of time, and they were spitting out movies 2 times a year in some cases.

    Most of the laziness seems to stem in their earlier films, such as Snow White and Robin Hood. And, it`s not like they didn`t have any ideas or ran out of ideas to use at that time. Either it was for budget costs or pure laziness. I`ll go with number two. Although I`m sure you can find it in their later movies just as well.

    so if all the cells have to be hand drawn (im sure all those shown were old enough) were they really copying? those dance scenes looked very similar yes, but wouldn`t they have to re-draw the characters anyways??? maybe just a lack of inginuity on their part?

    Wow when I saw that I thought it was just gonna be about the Beauty and the Beast dance scene. I know with that one they were running out of money towards the end and modified the Sleeping Beauty sequence. I had no idea about the others. Now that you mention it, that bear from Robin Hood is like a recolor of Baloo.

    Try having 84,600 drawings per hour. On low-quality films, which Disney is not.
    Even on the lowest quality films, it`s still 28,800 frames per hour.
    Take into consideration that one person may just do some in betweens and you`re probably still doing at least 800.

    They deserve to recycle.

    This is interesting, but there`s way too many people who will watch this and categorize it as yet another Disney conspiracy. If you think about it, the artwork is still all original, it`s just the motions that are the same. And they`re recycling they`re own motions! These were all older movies too, back when they still did frame by frame animation, which took forever. I don`t blame them. Do you seriously feel cheated because in Disney`s eyes, a chicken dances the same way as an orangutan? Most people would have never noticed if it weren`t for this video, so what difference does it make?

    As an artist...

    I seriously don`t blame them.
    Besides, like someone said; it`s the motions, not the actual art that`s recycled. They still had to draw it out a gazillion times. Think about it, most movies are done at 24 frames per second. All of the frames are done by hand. Multiply 24 seconds by however long a movie is... That`s a lot of drawings.

    Well I know what probably happened in a lot of these is they have "test footage" with a live-action actor/actress. They use the footage to animate their characters more accurately to real life.

    These pieces of live-action test footage were probably just reused.

    I knew that Robin Hood recycled many movements-I could tell just by watching. But at least it`s not like they`re recycling things from other movie companies-It`s all disney stuff.

    Here`s another tidbit of information: the song at the beginning of robin hood (the disney one shown, of course) was taken, sped up, and re-named the hamster dance song! :D

    Lazy animation? Heh.

    I actually appreciate that they take from their own roots (even subtly) to make sure that their style remains Disney after about 70 years of making feature films, with about 55 years of pure hand animation.

    Just to put hand animation into perspective, for a 90 minute feature, at 24 frames per second, it amounts to 129,600 frames. Granted, Disney mainly did cel animation (where a painted transparency is placed atop a background), but that`s still a nontrivial amount of work, even for a decent sized staff.

    I think it`s done completely intentionally. A sort of `call back` as opposed to `lazy animation.` Especially the entire scene being almost identical since it WAS Snow White ... their crowning achievement.

    ok guys, about to make a breakthrough on the song, i believe it was used in the movie "i`ll be home for christmas" during the scene where johnathan taylor thomas is trying to get into the suite with his gf and eddie...i`ll go google it or something. back in a flash.

    The song is "The Silly song" from Snowwhite and the seven dwarves. It is just sung in french.
    Like Dragonshadoz it is the song played at the dance scene.

    I wouldn`t call it laziness, seeing as how all of these films are done with traditional cel animation. At best, the animators could only be using the same patterns of movement. All the artwork from each film must still be drawn and animated on its own terms. I figure it`s just Disney being clever and using the same movements to make new films similar to old ones, creating a very slight and subtle feeling of familiarity when you watch the new one.

    barr beauty and the beast all the film were animated by the `nine old men` of disney who had animated the film from the beginning. the fox and the hound, which was released in 1981, was the changing of the guard for the core animaters to the new ones who had been training for the last 5 years at disney`s in house traing scheme and who took over the main animations from then on. they had 12 principles of animation which were used all the time in disney film and there are countless other films which host alot of the same trick of their trade.

    i watched the extras on the fox and the hound dvd and this useless piece of trivia has never been useful... till now :-D

    A lot of people would feel accomplished if they`d drawn only one frame of these animations, let alone thousands. XP

    That song was from Snow White- actually from the dancing part they showed (I believe), the random laughing were dwarves in the song/movie.

    Very interesting, & I agree with White Wolfos- not exactly "lazy".

    The cost of animating these films is ridiculous so would it hurt to save a little money? Honestly, would a child really notice these similarities if they weren`t side by side? Or even if they WERE side by side?

    Actually, Excelman, The Jungle Book and Robin Hood are only about ... six years or so apart. So not so much those two, but I get where you`re coming from. n_n;;

    But yeah. Never actually saw a nice clip montage of it before, but these throwbacks have been compared plenty of times with screenshots. :3

    @HorsesRule:

    Those things have nothing to do with being lazy/reusing animation.
    Pixar is infamous for adding in all those small references (such as the various character cameo`s in Boo`s room for Monster`s Inc.) solely for fun.

    If you know where to find them, you can also spot Belle and Pumba in the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the Beast in Aladdin.
    Like I said before, they`re just little corks for fun.


    But anywho.
    You`ll notice (as I think it`s been stated once before) that Disney most often was forced to reuse animation in many instances where either they ran out of time to animate a certain piece or when they ran into a situation where they were far too over-budget and had to cut afew corners due to financial issues.

    The animators of Snow White had to book reservations for medical treatment after having been diagnosed with sleep depervation and exhaustion from working on snow white. do you think they`d want to do it again and think up new movements for future movies? I wouldn`t especially having to do it all by hand, before computers where involved in animation. so it`s understanding why they re-use they`re animation time and time again.
