As part of "Exploring Abstract Algebra with Mathematica,"  Al Hibbard
and I have a notebook that produces Euler angle movies.  This will
serve as an appendix to a lab on the rotational groups of regular
polyhedra. 

You can see a movie at 
http://www.uml.edu/Dept/Math/ExpAlg/eulerangle/eulerangle.shtml with a
link to the notebook itself
