I never noticed that.
I will note that most of those movies are from “early” Disney, before it became Mega-Disney. You don’t see any of their work from the last two decades in there. Most of it looks like stuff from the 50’s and 60’s. Still, it is amazing that they re-used so many sequences of movements. Makes me wonder what techniques they used to generate the sequences that made this an attractive option.
And then at 1:13 when they recycled the same terrible racist stereotype. Arg. I’ll bet they wish they could take that one back.
EDIT: People are questioning the stereotype charge. See, I have it in my head that the guy playing the drums is an Asian stereotype: Squinty eyes, buck teeth, and I swear I have this memory of him talking in an exaggerated Chinese accent. Maybe having some sort of “Confucius say” shtick?
But it's a childhood memory. So many people are questioning the stereotype that I'm now doubting myself. Maybe I'm confusing it with another character.

Fidget spinners are ruining education! We need to... oh, never mind the fad is over. This is not the first time we've had a dumb moral panic.
The Death of Half-Life
Valve still hasn't admitted it, but the Half-Life franchise is dead. So what made these games so popular anyway?
If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?
Imagine if the original Star Wars hadn't appeared in the 1970's, but instead was pitched to studios in 2006. How would that turn out?
