A new supercut of Disney movie scenes is making us question our very own childhood. Have we just been watching the same Disney scenes over and over again?

It's not a secret that Disney animators used to reuse animation, but it's shocking to see it all at once in a neatly-packaged YouTube video. According to Mental Floss: "In the early days, Disney animators frequently recycled footage from older animated films. They would simply draw over existing animation cells to make new scenes with characters with similar designs, characteristics, and movements."

Film fan Movie Munchies posted this well-edited supercut on YouTube, stitching together similar scenes. There's the same exact ballroom dance scene in 1959's Sleeping Beauty and 1991's Beauty and the Beast. Also, Snow White gleefully claps in the 1937 feature animation just like Maid Marion in 1973's Robin Hood. We also see some cuts from The AristoCats and The Jungle Book.
