Anyone know what method the programmer(s) of Frogger for the Odyssey2 
used to accomplish this?  Their sound hardware was a lot more limited 
than the 2600's, but they even managed to display an animation 
onscreen while it was going on.  Apart from me knowing their hardware 
wasn't normally capable of that, the only tell was a pretty severe 
vibrato in the tones.
