The scans for this animation were done with the xvscan utility on an HP scanjet 4c.

The resulting images were shrunk in size and converted to 16-color greymaps using the pbmplus suite of image manipulation tools. Finally, the gifmerge tool was used to composite the images into a single 211 kbyte, 73-frame GIF animation.
