Is animation typically redrawing or updating the entire window constantly?

I thought only a character needs to be updated, not the background or any non-moving objects.

I thought about this after I removed the code that fills up the background in this program. The result was the image being shadowed, or the image the buffer replaced was never erased and left a trail of the image wherever the user dragged the mouse cursor.
