Looking for an Online Chart Animation tool

I am looking for an online tool that will create a line or bar chart that will be saved to a GIF format so it can become animated. I think I can do this in Excel but It would be faster for me if I used an online tool.

For example, I have a five year data series that I want to show as a animated gif showing the overall annual increase. e.g. the years are 2008 to 2012. the data is 80, 90, 100, 110, 120. I want to see the graph growing each year. This means I need to save a image file for each annual progression and then combine them into a GIF file. Then I want to post the GIF file to Twitpic and tweet it to my followers for them to digest and discuss. The GIF file will show the increase over and over again thus getting some attention to the issue I am illustrating. Thanks for your help!

That's great answer thank you!  I want to use a Animated gif because the animation happens automatically in the twitter client rather than having to click the video to play it. I want to attract attention to a point I am making by animating it. I'd like to be able to do this as quickly as possible. For example, if I could highlight a set of numbers, right click on it and choose "Create Gif Chart animation" and have it so I could save it to my hard drive or upload it to my twitpic account. That would be fantastic.

You'll have to create images and make the GIF out of those. As I explained, you can do the chart in PPT and save it (or them) as images from PPT, but you cannot make the animated GIF from PPT.

Here's a free online GIF creator. http://makeagif.com/
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
