Yeah, saw this not long ago. Here's what Disney themselves had to say about it in the extras for 101 Dalmations:
From wiki: As the film allotted a small budget, the artists referenced footage from previous animated features. A dance sequence in the film was traced from a sequence originally produced for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This is most noticeable during the song-and-dance number, "The Phony King of England"; the characters' movements strongly resemble those from The Jungle Book, The Aristocats, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The "Woolie" they refer to is Wolfgang Reitherman, who worked on Snow White, and directed several of the animated classics (101 Dalmations, Jungle Book, Aristocats, Robin Hood...).
