How to Animate Cartoons?

Animating cartoons on your computer is very similar to animating them in a flip book. You can use a graphics program like Microsoft Paint to create individual images just as you would a flip book, with each image slightly different (for example, if you want the character to wave, each image would have the arm slightly move). When you’re finished, save all of your images, and open them in a movie editing program, such as Microsoft Movie Maker. Put all the images together, and play your new animated movie!
