Growing up, most of us were crazy on all things Disney. From movies, TV shows to music, there’s really something magical about it that will always put a smile on your face regardless of age.
It is one of the biggest companies in the world of animation, yet just like everything else, it started with humble beginnings. In the middle of the 20th century, there wasn’t enough budget to hire illustrators to draw different pictures each time they create cartoons. Did you know Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs (1937) had more than a million images manually drawn? In fact, 570 artists spent 3 years illustrating them. Mind blowing, right?
So what did they do? Disney employees used pre-existing scenes from other cartoons. Check them out below. You’ll be amazed you’ve never noticed them until now!
