How Disney Recycled the Exact Same Movement Sequences in Their Early Animated Movies

Fred Schultz quite astutely pointed out on Twitter that scenes from two very different classic Disney films looked very much alike. The films The Jungle Book (1967) and Winnie the Pooh (1977) show the respective lead characters of Mowgli and Christopher Robin moving in exactly the same way despite the differences in their environments, plots, and dialogues.

While this seems new, the use of recycled biomechanic movement templates was a common practice at Disney, particularly in the early days of animation. Cartoon Hangover explained this practice in fairly comprehensive manner.
