Accepting static image ads, but excluding animated or video ads

Moving ads district too much from our content

We've slotted a single 250px square graphical adwords block on some of our content pages. This has worked fine for a whole, but recently too many flashing animated ads come up.

Can we draw the line, and exclude those? Interactive ads are fine. Graphical ads are fine. But an ad that starts moving without interaction detracts from our content.

Other than booting back to text ads, do we have options for controlling the autonomous animation?

You can turn off "Animated display ads - show animated display ads" under ad serving

Thanks, found the setting "Animated display ads - show animated display ads.". I'd been looking on the ad unit itself, not thinking there might be a global setting.
