In Flash 3 Symbols are interchangeable and can be used as a different
type of symbol by changing its behaviour.
An (animated) Graphic symbol will use the timeline it is placed on to
play its animation whereas a Movie Clip uses its own timeline.

If you need a Graphic that is the same as in another Symbol (Movie Clip,
Button or Graphic) you don't need to create a new symbol. Change the
behavior of a new Instance of the Symbol to Graphic and select Single
Frame and designate the correct frame number for the Graphic you need.
