Saturday Morning Cartoons Insert Coin: A tribute to old arcade games. The second half explains how it was done. (4:36 minutes)

Exelence: Maybe not the most productive, but probably the most fun way to use spreadsheets (3:07 minutes)

He looks forward to living on Mars where he would benefit from having more than 24 hours in a day.

The thought of trying to make that coin animation is enough to cause your brain to claw its way out of your skull. Rearranging all those coins frame by frame AFTER you've already gone to the work to create the reference animation in another medium... That's serious dedication.

Insert Coin is very impressive. The amount of time and effort that must have gone into that is insane. I like how there were no qualms about doing 3D animations in that medium too. Kudos to those guys.
