To avoid further confusion, the one with 3,929,691 bytes is my favorite. 
It was created using Jasc Animation Shop 3, which is something like 15 
years old, and still great! I uninstalled the program it came with (PSP

I forgot to post a link to the original 24 bit animation, so here it is:


You may need Google Chrome to view it. I couldn't get it to load in 
XnViewMP for instance.
