Remember DARPA's Big Dog? Looks like this video could have inspired its design. The clip shows a composition of some animal motion studies (along with some killer dance moves) prepared for the 1989 CG short "Eurythmy" by Ohio State University's Computer Graphics Research Group.

We found this over at web TV station Network Awesome, and it's just one piece from their hours-long collection of vintage CG clips - we could watch these all day!
