15 Times Disney Cheated and Used the Same Illustrations in Different Cartoons

Nowadays, Disney is one of the biggest companies in the sphere of cartoons and the global entertainment industry. But just like many other businesses, Disney started small: in the middle of the 20th century, the studio didn’t have an unimaginable budget or an army of illustrators to draw unique pictures every time. Just imagine: illustrators manually drew more than a million images for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), which was 83 minutes long. 570 artists spent 3 years drawing all those images. It’s just crazy!

WeGoRo found out a trick of Disney employees: they used pre-existing scenes from other cartoons. We bet you never noticed!

Robin Hood (1973) and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Robin Hood (1973) and The Jungle Book (1967)

101 Dalmatians (1961) and The Jungle Book (1967)

The Sword in the Stone (1963) and The Jungle Book (1967)

101 Dalmatians (1961) and The Sword in the Stone (1963)

The Sword in the Stone (1963) and The Truth About Mother Goose (1957)

Winnie the Pooh (1977) and The Jungle Book (1967)

The Princess and the Frog (2009) and The Sword in the Stone (1963)

Alice in Wonderland (1951) and Pinocchio (1940)

The Jungle Book (1967) and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)

Sleeping Beauty (1959) and Beauty and the Beast (1991)

After such discoveries, all events from cartoons seem to happen in one and the same magic universe! Disney’s drawings had a head start over modern computer cartoons. Do you agree?
