You can animate how chart elements appear on a PowerPoint slide. In PowerPoint 2010-13, click the Effect Options button (Animations tab, Animation group). With a chart selected, you will see choices specifically related to charts at the bottom. The default is As One Object. This causes the whole chart to appear on the screen by the Entrance animation effect you’ve chosen. You can also choose By Series or By Category.
To keep the chart background on the slide with no animation effect, Reveal the Animation Pane (Advanced Animation group) and delete the animation for just that element.
