This was my first Computer animation.
First we were assigned to create a Lego man(tm) complete with shaders and UV maps, then animate him without a rig (which is fine because back then I didn't know what a rig was). So my little Inigo Montoya jumps through a hoop then pulls out a toy light saber.
When we were then asked to add effects to our animation I set the hoop on fire and attached lightning to the saber. It's all default effects and a relatively poor animation, but it makes me laugh.
