Recycling has only become fashionable in the past few decades but it seems that
Disney has been doing it since the dark ages.
Researchers have revealed that scenes from much-loved cartoons such as Robin Hood
and Winnie The Pooh were copied from the studio’s earlier hits.
Disney has ‘recycled’ some of its backgrounds and animation
sequences over and over again.
The technique is called rotoscoping and industry insiders say
it is a legitimate method of cutting costs in movie-making.
