You can delete /system/media/bootanimation.zip and the second boot animation would be gone. You need to root your phone to do that though. Also, this would make your home screen appear faster, but not fully functional until it competes boot. Changing or removing the first boot splash is trickier, it requires recompiling the kernel with a blank boot splash ...
I can't say you why the animation is not working, but I would try to replace/delete the bootanimation.zip at /system/media and see if the phone boots normally.
