From YouTube video description:
"Looks like the Disney Vault has a purpose after all – to keep us from realizing how similar our favorite classic Disney movies truly are. According to this video, Disney only ever made one movie, and they've been tracing it ever since."

That video is interesting, I never realized they recycled scenes like that in the different movies.

Here's a clip from that Times Online article "Disney fans surprised by recycled scenes":

<< They might be considered classics but a web-savvy film buff has found another reason why hit Disney films look so familiar – recycled scenes.

The Swedish teenager, known only as Wetrox, has become a YouTube hit after he spliced together scenes from Disney classics, including Robin Hood and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, to show that the movie giant often used the same scenes in different films.

The technique, known as “video referencing”, saves the studio money as a character’s animation can be traced from another film, skipping the phase of painstakingly copying human movement.

Marked similarities can be found between Winnie The Pooh and The Jungle Book and Robin Hood and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. >>
