Please help me find an example of a paint-in-the-opening-scene animation effect.

When I was in grade school in the 1970's, I saw a number of films that featured a certain animation effect. I believe these were nature films, maybe Disney nature films?
In the opening sequence, a paint brush moves across the screen. As the paint flows off the brush, a full color scene appears on the screen. I believe that when the scene is fully painted in, it comes to life and starts to move.
Is there a name for this animation technique? Can you point me to some examples online?
