Well, wait, that's not recycled footage.

I don't know what you would call it, but there is definitely some re-use going on here.

If you are going to one star this vid, at least one star it for the atrocious music.

Looks pretty damn similar to me.

If it was good once it will be good another 15 times

Jeff Fries - 2009-04-10

Animation is really hard, and in the 70s Disney was really poor. This was very educational.

So how does this work? they save money by not having to do whatever the old school version of motion capture was??

bopeton - 2009-04-10

That would be rotoscoping, and yeah, that's the deal.

Considering the state they were in during the 70's, I'd say this was smart, not a bad thing. If you already have a huge library of animation stuff, you might as well use it. It's not like kids are going to notice or care. It might even make the films feel more familiar and comfortable.

I remember seeing some of these similarities as a kid. I chalked it down to "I guess I am just noticing the 'Disney style'". I'm fairly sure the 70's/80's saw a lot of rotoscoping as well (but if you know what you're doing, such as Bakshi, the technique is nothing to be disgusted over) The close up of the hands/paws clapping should be forgiven imo. I mean...cut the poor animators a little break.

It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't copy whole sequences.

Tstyle - 2009-04-10

Are you suggesting that Bakshi does rotoscoping well?

thebaronsdoctor - 2009-04-10

You know, Snow White was actually rotoscoped. Like, the character Snow White, not the whole movie.

This means Robin Hood was rotocoping ritiscoping.

Spit Spingola - 2009-04-10

Very much enjoyed the French version of the yodeling song from Snow White.

mcsancherson - 2009-04-10

this is basically rotoscoping, they saved time and animation money because by basically just painting over cells from different movies instead of blocking and animating whole new action sequences, which is really fucking hard

mcsancherson - 2009-04-10

this comment makes sense

Oktay - 2009-04-11

Not only that but some of the animation looks very much like it was rotoscoped from live footage (eg. Snow White clapping), which was the style at time. Anyway, the important thing is, I had an onion tied to my belt...

If you're going to reuse dance sequences, at least base them on this:


Xenocide - 2009-04-10

Robin Hood was one of Disney's lowest-budget movies, as it was coming at a time when the studio was hemorrhaging money like crazy. It's kind of an open sequence that they ripped themselves off in order to complete it.

This was also the first movie they made after Walt died, and upon his death the studio had split into little directorial fiefdoms with no one clear direction. In other words, Disney was pretty fucked at the time.

Xenocide - 2009-04-10

"Open SECRET." Yeesh.

chumbucket - 2009-04-10

nice find, but you can probably note the same behavior in plots for films of recent release

-1 for the french yodeling madness

hornung - 2009-04-10

in a just universe, we would be vacationing at fleischerland and fleischerworld

Spastic Avenger - 2009-04-10

It's more a re-use of timing sheets and tracing than it is recycling. Still, i noticed this as a kid and i just put it down to using the same way of solving a problem or a bit of a signature.

manfred - 2009-04-10

Robin Hood seems nothing else than proto-furry wank material. Thanks a lot, Internet.

Gill_Sans - 2009-04-10

Robin Hood, seems nothing else than proto-furry wank material. Thanks a lot Internet!

Lindner - 2009-04-10

Honestly, I loved Robin Hood as a kid. That having been said, in retrospect, I believe it was one of the factors that led to the furry movement gaining momentum. I'm saddened every time I think of how someone is jerking off to my childhood memories.

... as for the clip, huh, that IS interesting!

Big Muddy - 2009-04-27

All undertaken by the same director Wolfgang Reitherman who singlehandedly helmed all Disney's animated films from "101 Dalmatians"(1961) untill "The Rescuers"(1977). He was also a key animator in all the original films prior to that. I believe in Robin Hood and Rescuers they would average about 30-40 percent retooled stuff. But Bedknobs and Broomsticks is probably more given it's only partly animated.
