I think it’s less an issue of pioneering and more just economics. Robin Hood had less than half the budget that Aristocats and Jungle Book were given, so the animators had to do more with less. Character animation is a time consuming process if you’re doing it from scratch, so that’s one of the areas where a lot of corners were cut. Given that home video was a long way off and the odds of people seeing the films back to back were pretty much nil, it makes a lot of sense.
