This is an idea I've had for a while, and I'd like input on how to cultivate it. If the title wasn't clear enough, I think animation fans could make a drinking game out of seeing recycled animation while watching an animated movie (and not just general Disney or Woolie Reitherman movies).

One question would be what type of recycled animation it would be. Would it just be bits recycled from within the movie itself, like Tigger's dancing in The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh? Would it be bits recycled from other movies, like the Wind in the Willows chase in The Jungle Book? Would it be both?

Another is which movies have enough recycling to be considered dangerous for this sort of sport. One could probably get alcohol poisoning from applying this game to movies like Robin Hood and the Swan Princess franchise (although the latter may depend on whether you include all three movies for recycling - the third one overflows with it).

Any ideas from people with or without drinking game experience?

Another facet I just thought of is the background question. When does the repetition of a background count for a shot in the drinking game?

The Jungle Book, for instance, has a few recycled backgrounds during its opening credits and Bagheera's narration:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/jVPKOeYWvj0?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/jVPKOeYWvj0?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

In this case, the recycling may have been just to provide a backdrop for the credits.

Some background reuses are tricky. I've known The Swan Princess for years and only just noticed this quick reuse today:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/gneJSg8XFP0?fs=1&hl=en_US&start=102"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/gneJSg8XFP0?fs=1&hl=en_US&start=102" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

If too many can be difficult to spot like this one, then backgrounds could possibly be disqualified. If they are blatant, like in the Swan Princess sequels, then they could remain.

I did this with "Robin Hood" and went to into a coma for three weeks. Not recommended.

Yeah, I expected something like that. As far as Woolie Reitherman movies go, I think The Sword in the Stone might be the safest bet.

Here's another thread: the recycling of sound effects. Animated movies may reuse sound effects or vocal effects (laughs, coughs, etc.) to save money. Should these be considered for its own game or placed in the same game as the animation reuse?

For sound effects, I turn again to a Swan Princess movie. They have practically just two magic sound effects and you hear them throughout the series. It becomes particularly annoying during this song:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/k5Df_I2Yg9Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&start=281"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/k5Df_I2Yg9Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&start=281" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

For vocal sound effects, everyone knows the "Whoa, what, whoa!" line Wart says without end in The Sword in the Stone.

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/gvLRRuU7S4Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&start=411"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/gvLRRuU7S4Y?fs=1&hl=en_US&start=411" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>
