Who remembers the Animalympics?

Our fearless monkey leader brought this to my attention yesterday. I vaguely recall seeing at least part of Animalympics as a kid but it’s the Tron-like intro that I most remember (both, it turns out were directed by Steven_Lisberger). And that’s not the only recognizable name involved in this pair of NBC animalized Olympics projects celebrating/spoofing the Summer and Winter games. Billy Crystal, Gilda Radner, and Harry Shearer all added their voices, and both Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and Roger Allers (The Lion King) had a hand in the animation. You can find the entirety of both specials (divided up into nine parts) on YouTube.
