What program can I use to create vintage 3d type animation? I know very little about 3d animation, but i'd like to create very basic 3d animations for example, the video from Dire Straights, Money for nothing with the 2 3d movers. I figure doing something this simplistic can't be that difficult, so if any one could point me in the right direction, i'd be happy!

For something simple, I'd try Milkshape. I think you can still use a trial for 30 days (it's not expensive, ~$30USD). For a richer set of features, and a much better price (free) try Blender. There's gobs of tutorials out there on it, and it's open source!
