The graph in the first gif shows a graph well known to those of us who have taken trigonometry — the sine wave. Essentially, the sine graph of a circle is the height of a circle as you revolve around it.
What if you followed this for different geometrical figures? That is what the bottom two graphs express! The height as you revolve around the figure.
