my guess is that it could be gif images (not dynamically imported though) and if you check the image settings in flash library you can select if you want smoothing and that that option off..

my guess is that the gifs in the mario thingy didnt have many colors and weren'y to complicated so the filesize isnt huge.. (big unicolored areas in gifs dont take up much space...)
