* Sometimes animation is reused during the right scenes in ''GingaNagareboshiGin,'' leading to the same dogs getting killed over and over again. One dalmatian in particular has all the bad luck dying again and again. During the battle with the bears in the last few episodes, Gin and a couple other dogs are shown hanging off a bear when they had already jumped off.
* ''DNAngel'' is not usually bad about this trope over all, but Episode 24 has a example of this trope done really badly. Animation of [[{{Familiar}} With]] becoming Dark's wings and attaching to his back is reused. The problem with this is in the reused animation, Dark is hundreds of feet in the sky free falling. Before the reused animation, he was standing on the ground. Dark and With can't jump that far, but they don't even try to [[HandWave pass it off]] as them jumping, which they could have easily done by having a nearby character comment "what a jump!" or something.

* ''Anime/MaiHime'' and ''Anime/MaiOtome'' are especially good at averting this--''MaiOtome'' especially. Every [[MagicalGirl girl]] has a unique transformation sequence, but we only see it twice for each girl, tops.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/{{PBS}} was forced by inclement weather to resort to this for their 2016 broadcast of ''A Capitol Fourth''. Naturally, quite a few viewers complained, but PBS stuck to their guts and [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste went so far as to note that they showed not only the best fireworks from that show but also from previous shows]], calling it "the patriotic thing to do".

** Award-winning Apollo documentary ''Film/ForAllMankind'' consists of nothing but stock footage from beginning to end, overlaid with audio clips of the Apollo astronauts talking about their experiences.

* 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, ''[[Anime/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.
