Well at least the stereotypical style is adopted. Regardless of the actual variety of the art in Disney films, many people think that all Disney films have the same general look, with traits such as:
- Soft lines, roundness, doe eyes.
- Outlines done in colors rather than black.
- Very smooth animation in every movement.
- Only one tonal layer applied with a gaussian blur in compositing.
This can appear in a TV show, a comic book or a feature-length film; and it doesn't matter if this style lasts through the entire work or is just an Art Shift for a single scene. It can involve a character having a pleasant fantasy, even overlapping with Disney Creatures of the Farce or the Roger Rabbit Effect.
Contrast Limited Animation.
- As in the picture, Family Guy did this as one of several Alternate Universes the Griffins visit in one episode, which included making Lois look like a Disney Princess.
- In the film Nine to Five, Violet has an Imagine Spot like this.
- Another imagine spot in Fletch Lives.
- One episode of the Spawn animated series opened like this.
- A Dream Sequence in The Beautician And The Beast is done in the Disney style.
- Princess Clara (and anyone and anything related to her) from Drawn Together, as the show uses characters from different animation styles.
- Tex Avery's early Looney Tunes shorts aped the Disney style as closely as possible for the sake of parody.
- A Valentines Day Episode of The Simpsons featured a Lady and the Tramp parody named "Shady and the Vamp". Although the characters were still drawn in the standard Simpsons style, the backgrounds were painted in the Disney style and the characters' lines were done in color.
- Early Chuck Jones shorts, such as those featuring Sniffles the Mouse, employed this.
- College Humor's "Colors of the Wind: Stoner Edition" (aka "Tokahontas").
- Adventures from the Book of Virtues looks pretty Disneyesque for a PBS cartoon.
- Tom and Jerry and The Wizard of Oz (2011) does this with the settings and characters derived from the latter film, but lets the T&J characters have their typical look.
