Neil Cicierega was said to have invented the concept of animutations in 2001, with a work entitled "The Japanese Pokerap". That never sounded right to me, but I let it go, because I didn't think I'd ever find any evidence to the contrary.
Last night, while digging around through my old floppy disks, I finally found what I was looking for -- a clear case of animutation that I did a decade prior!
Written in April 1990, "Going Now" is clearly the first ever example of Animutation. (All of the apparent references to animutations that were created after 1990 are indeed a fantastic coincidence, and proof once again that God works in mysterious ways.)
