This is an animation that I made in Google Presentation. As the students in my class know I am mildly obsessed with Pukeko's - hence choosing them for my character in this animation is not surprising.
I used Keynote's 'instant alpha' to remove the white background from the pukeko image, then copy it into the slide show.
I copied and shrunk/enlarged/cropped the pukeko to make the different characters, and each slide was made by copying the last, then adjusting the movements of each character, before copying it again for the next slide.
Finally I published the presentation to web, then changed the html to adjust the time between slides to 200 down from 1000 or 3000.
I must admit, I enjoyed making this a lot more than I expected.
