* An especially JustForFun/{{egregious}} example comes from the 1970s live-action / animated Saturday morning program ''{{Shazam}}!'' {{Creator/Filmation}}, the production company for the animated segments, only made footage of Billy [[TransformationSequence transforming]] ''into'' Captain Marvel (which, of course, was used once or twice every episode). When they needed to show Captain Marvel changing ''back'' into Billy, they just ran the footage backwards. That wouldn't have been so bad, except in both directions the sequence starts with a lightning bolt called by the magic word "Shazam", and they didn't bother to edit out the bolt "un-hitting" Billy at the end of the reversed footage.

** ''Sailor Moon'''s first season was particularly low budget and it showed because more than just the usual transfomation, attack, and speech footage got recycled -- pretty much anytime you saw a cool shot, you could expect a later episode to rip it out and use it again out of context, and in one early instance, a shot of Sailor Moon dodging a punch just ripped a few seconds out of her transformation sequence. Since this show also had many different animators, it could get jarring to see recycled footage appear because the characters would look completely different. {{Egregious}}ly, the season's final episode has the entire sequence of Usagi hitting Mamoru in the head with her test paper repeated using mostly the same footage from the first episode. While there was a plot reason for this, the animation quality of the first episode was dramatically lower than the final episode, making it extremely obvious what was being recycled.

* Used [[{{Egregious}} egregiously]] in ''[[Franchise/ArchieComics The Archies' Funhouse]]'', where the same clips of animation would be used over and over with the only difference being the characters' clothes... and sometimes, not even that!

*** The two scenes are obviously ''very'' similar, but given the time gap in between them, one can make the argument that ''Beauty'''s scene was at least partly an homage.

*** The two scenes are obviously ''very'' similar, but given the time gap in between them, them and of course the increased quality, one can make the argument that ''Beauty'''s scene was at least partly an the very most used as a model to base the scene on, and most likely a homage.


Added DiffLines:

** A huge amount of ''Robin Hood'' was recycled, such as any time crowds are cheering, marching, or dancing. All the mooks are identical - the Rhinos, Elephants and Wolves only have one model for the many of them used. On top of that, Little John is an exact copy of Baloo from Jungle Book. And a lot of poses are re-used for the main characters.

* In ''Film/SunsetBoulevard'', the silent movie footage of Norma Desmond in her prime is from Gloria Swanson's 1929 film ''Queen Kelly''.

* Pom Pom from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' speaks entirely in bubbles, which were made from blowing bubbles into a glass of milk. Only one recording for Pom Pom was ever made, and it is still being used to this day.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MonColleKnights'' uses so much repeated stock footage every episode that [[GagDub the dub]] did what it could to make it more entertaining by adding unique humorous conversations during the stock footage in each episode.

** "The Invasion" uses the exact same footage of missiles pivoting up, then cutting to the behind view, then a single missile rotating across a clear sky, three times in three successive episodes. This wouldn't have been so obvious to the audience watching it week-by-week, but is painful in an ArchiveBinge (it doesn't help that at least two are EngagingChevrons sequences).
** One of the most [[StockFootageFailure blatant]] ever uses of Stock Footage was the episode "Revenge of the Cybermen", where a video of a Saturn V taking off was used to represent the launch of a rocket that looked nothing like it.
** In "The Five Doctors", because Tom Baker was unavailable for filming, he's included using a scene from the unfinished and unbroadcast story "Shada", showing [[OldFashionedRowboatDate Four punting on the Cam with Romana Two]] shortly before being "trapped in the time vortex".
** In "The Sea Devils", a helicopter changes make and color so that it can blow up via stock footage.

** Special mention to the HalloweenEpisode "Trickster Treat" aired as part of Series/PowerRangersSamurai. Not only did it use footage from the Shinkenger DVD movie Shinkenger returns, it used on Super Sentai stock footage from previous and as yet to be aired episodes of the series. The only original footage was a few shots lasting a total of a few seconds.

** Pretty much every big battle blatantly reused shots from ''Sacrifice of Angels''. One of the most used was the iconic shot of the Defiant barely breaking through the enemy lines while the other ships in its squadron were blown away, despite the original usage being the only time it made sense.

** Parodied in ''Another Simpsons Clip Show'' when Bart and Lisa watch an Itchy and Scratchy cartoon that we as an audience have seen in a previous episode, causing Marge to ask them 'how many times they can watch that particular cartoon'? They lampshade by answering that it's a new episode made from stock footage. This is also selfreferential comedy because the entire episode itself is made from stock footage from previous Simpsons episodes, only with occasional new dialogue spliced over them.
*** Played straight in a season three episode ''Radio Bart'' where the police notify Homer and Marge of Bart being trapped in the well. The footage is taken from the Thanksgiving episode from the previous season.

** In "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", they re-used footage from "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe" when they are talking to Pip at the cafeteria. To be fair, this is a scene that was not used in the version of "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe" that aired on television. However, given that [=CGAAP=] is (to this day) the only episode of South Park to actually be made with construction paper, the difference in animation between this scene and the remainder of "An Elephant Makes Love To A Pig" is pretty jarring.
** In "Starvin' Marvin [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]]!", when Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Marvin go through the wormhole again, they simply rehashed footage from earlier on in the episode. Notice how Kenny appears with them on the ship, even though we saw him frozen in carbonite on Sally Struthers' ship earlier.
