    Where to Find Yahoo's Christmas Skating Animation

    Couple of years ago Yahoo had an animation on the homepage in Christmas season. Two cute animals (or children?) skating in front of the Yahoo logo.

    I don't remember well but do you by any chance know about that? Where to find it? Is there an archive that I can search at? At least some screen shots.

    By the way, most probably it was made with Flash.

    Aha, got it. Search Engine Land saved a copy of the Flash file:

    It takes a couple seconds before she starts skating.

    Thanks Dan. But that's not the one. As far as I remember there should be a skating couple (and bigger sprites than the lady in pink). They were also skating in front and behind the Yahoo logo. The animation was so nice and simple at the same time, that I'd love to see it again and get some inspiration.

    Edit:

    Now I find my own post searching Google. Progress

    Yes! It's the one with the penguin. Hmm, things don't always feel the same but still I kind of like it. Barely remember there was another version of the same one with different skating figures.
    Thanks again.
