* By contrast, ''TransformersCybertron'' did not realize this. Stock footage of transformations and Cyber Key Powerups were essentially used to fill up chunks of time (to the ridiculous extreme that they'd cut to extremely short transformation sequences, flashing backdrop and everything, and then back to the real world). The dubbers did eventually cotton on to how boring this was, however, and had the characters [[LullDestruction talk ''while'' the stock footage was happening]]. Its predecessor, ''[[TransformersArmada Transformers: Energon]]'', while also using the same type of stock footage, was not that bad about it.

* Needless to say, ''{{Voltron}}'' had 22-minute episodes that consisted of about 16 minutes of original footage and 6 minutes of the Lions leaving their lairs, forming Voltron, etc.

* TheProudFamily has several episodes that use the same clip of Trudy trying to make a souffle, but then it collapses. As you'd expect, it is often used in scenes where someone (usually Penny and her friends or Oscar) is making a lot of noise and Trudy is supposed to notice or react to the noise, while giving her a reason to also be angry if she's supposed to be in that scene.

** Like a lot of Creator/EdWood movies, ''Film/BrideOfTheMonster'' uses stock footage. First footage of a snake on a branch is used to make it look like a big rubber one in a tree is alive. Later, footage of moving alligators is used to make it appear as though a character is shooting at them; Mike and the robots make comments such as "He's shooting at a different movie!" And of course, stock footage of an octopus underwater is used with scenes of an unmoving obviously fake one.

*** A little more that. Careful eyes spotted during the Moralia battle that Patrick's Enact from episode 1 (thrusting its dagger at Exia), was re-painted as a black Hellion craft. Again no harm done though.

*** Of all Gundam shows, ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'' was the worst possible offender. Several scenes are actually stock footage, with each episode seemingly only 80% new content in many later episodes. Heck, anyone whenever they use their Finishing Moves (Shining Finger, Shining Finger Sword, Bakunetsu God Finger and Sekiha Tenkyoken in Domon's case) are usually reused footage. Hell, the scene where Domon suits up to pilot Shining Gundam was constantly reused, and even later, God Gundam's 'Suit Up'-scene was reused several times.

*** This can be seen most easilly when, after Domon first aquires the Burning Gundam, he still [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_ggokLpSBE calls the Shining Gundam.]]
*** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'' has a blatant example in episode 33. A [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Guncannon]] {{Expy}} is shown outside Rostuloran. A bit later, it's destroyed. And some minutes later, ''the first shot of the Guncannon'' is used again, with nary a trace of damage.
* The anime ''AkazukinChacha'' had stock footage to transform the titular Chacha into a holy princess with a magic bow, having her two friends activate their powers (Shiine kissed his ring and Riya thrust his bracer into the air). This was normally fine, except these two could do it at any time, including when under water, trapped in glass prisons, and even once when their arms were tied to their sides with rope.

* A military intervention in the ''AngryBeavers'' Halloween special was illustrated by stock footage of planes taking off, tanks driving away, navy vessels sailing on the sea, cavalry riding across the screen, sumo warriors struggling, baby turtles running across the beach, and Zulu warriors cheering. In that order.

** This is, of course, a more recent thing (as in, the last ''[[IncrediblyLamePun decade]]'' or so). All of the Showa-era Riders (from the original in the early 70s to ''Black RX'' in the late 90's) used stock footage transformations, simply because of limited CGI technology available at the time.

* Considering the very high costs of special effects back then, it's not surprising that ''{{Space 1999}}'' used some footage from the moon parts of ''TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''.

** These films (''The Jungle Book'', ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', ''Disney/TheAristocats'' and ''Robin Hood'' etc) are all directed by Wolfgang (Woolie) Reitherman. Reitherman was one of Disney's Nine Old Men of animation who became chief animation director in 1961 with ''101 Dalmations''. According to animator Floyd Norman, the reuse of animation sequences had nothing to do with budget constraints and "doing things cheaper" - the reuse of footage was simply one of Reitherman's directorial trademarks.

** There [[Disney/TheSwordInTheStone have]] [[Disney/TheJungleBook also]] [[Disney/TheRescuers been]] [[Disney/TheBeautyAndTheBeast instances]] where Disney/{{Bambi}}'s mother can be seen grazing on some grass (making it the most often re-used stock footage in Disney history).
