(CNN) -- Political upheaval across North Africa and the Middle East has provided rich pickings for animators, whose satirical videos have gone viral on the web, attracting millions of viewers.
Here are five of the best online animations mocking some of the region's entrenched, and recently departed, leaders:
This video of a speech by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi set to the tune of ''Hey Baby,'' by American rapper Pitbull, was posted on the internet by Noy Alooshe, an Israeli music producer and journalist. It has been viewed more than 3.6 million times on YouTube, and there are numerous spin-off versions.
This video by a team of young artists and storytellers at Kharabeesh.com shows ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abedine Ben Ali calling world leaders from his plane, asking them to help him find a new home.
Another offering from Kharabeesh, meaning "scribbles" in Arabic, making fun of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and his reluctance to give up power.
This video is also by Kharabeesh, whose animators are based in Jordan, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates. This spoof features Gadhafi as a stand-up comedian on the hit television show ''Arabs Got Talent.''
This contribution by MrBou3ali to the website JibJab, which allows subscribers to create their own e-cards and animations, shows Ben Ali, Mubarak and Gadhafi as break dancers.
