I’m away on my honeymoon right now but in order to not shirk my Bunkerly duties, I’ve queued up 10 awesome vids for you dear people. Enjoy!

Disney are the pretty much the undisputed masters of early hand drawn animation but even they were not above cutting a few corners here and there. In order to get films done on time, animators would often reuse cells from previous films, replacing the characters but keeping the movements. In this fascinating little  film, youtuber Dabedoo has collected a whole truck-load of such examples.

The most amazing thing to me is how recent some of the examples are. Wonderful stuff.
