Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) has a short video (40s) showing the tilts and spins of the planets of our solar system side-by-side. It shows the angles of the tilts and the time for a complete spin for each. You can also examine the illustration as a still. It is in color with each planet in an appropriately matched color. The variety is amazing--slow, fast,  vertically, horizontally, backwards.
