Disney Animators Are Hacks [Pic]. Maybe they have their poo together now, but back in the day, Disney animators didn`t even pretend to try.

Do you know how tedious it is to make new animated movements and backgrounds? I don't blame them for using the same things, in fact it`s cost effective. It`s amazing that they added this kind of level of detail even if it`s used numerous times.

Maybe this was some animator's way of being clever/funny - i.e. reuse an element like this and see who notices (probably only other animators, or total film geeks).

The only thing reused is the outline of the tree and the shaping of the surface (including the knot). The bark texture, and everything else in the picture, is different. So, they didn`t save all that much work, relative to the total amount of work in drawing these.

Regardless of the motivation, reusing an element like this doesn`t make the old Dis animators "hacks". Their level of detail was much higher than in most (not all) hand-done animation done in the last 50 years.
