# This example uses subclassing, but there is no reason that the proper function
# couldn't be set up and then use FuncAnimation. The code is long, but not
# really complex. The length is due solely to the fact that there are a total
# of 9 lines that need to be changed for the animation as well as 3 subplots
# that need initial set up.
