As with most PC programs, Windows 3.1 has a special sequence
of keystrokes that reveal the product's authors. In this case,
you also get an animation as well. Here are the steps:

1. Hold down Ctrl and Shift for the duration of this process.

2. With Program Manager active, do a HELP, ABOUT.

3. Double-click on one of the panes in the window in the upper left
Click OK.

4. Do another HELP, ABOUT in Program Manager.
Double-click the same window pane.
* A flag will fly
Click OK.

5. Do a third HELP, ABOUT in Program Manager
Double-click the same window pane.

This time you will see a cartoon character pointing to
a scrolling list of the Windows 3.1 development team.
Do it a few times using different panes, and eventually you'll
see all 4 cartoon characters.

(The characters are: Bill Gates, Micrsoft CEO (Guy w/glasses),
Steve Ballmer, Microsoft Exec VP (Bald Guy), Brad Silverberg, Vice
President - Microsoft Personal Systems/DOS & Windows (Bearded Guy)
and T-bear (Teddy Bear), Windows 3.1 team mascot).
