    The propaganda / Goverment money film is classic.
    YouTube - World of Motion Water Engine Post-show

    Looks like Don Buth Animation
    famous for The Secret of Nimh (1982), An American Tail (1986), and The Land Before Time (1988).

    But also special venue projects like this and a unique video game, Dragon's Lair

    As a gamer I can add that Dragons Lair was famous or rather infamous for great animation and visuals and horrible horrible gameplay. Calling what they passed off as gameplay in Dragons Lair as gameplay is stretching the definition pretty far. Push left, left, right at the exact right moment and you've completed this scene....

    Ha so right Cobos. It was more like selecting different scenes in a movie, horrible.

    Stupid game cost me a lot of quarters figuring out it was based on timing. I was so confused.

    That's the one, though I played it on my trusty 16Mhz 286 back in the day. I never really liked arcades, I always felt I was getting ripped off, tightwad that I am. :)
