A Loaf of Bread, a Container of Milk, and a Stick of Butter



A memorable Sesame Street animated short for sure (how could you forget?!) But seriously folks, check out this walk cycle. Here's a perfect case of the way a character talks and the way a character moves completely defining the character. It's also a perfect case of coming up with a great cycle (which definitely took time to create), and then getting a ton of use out of it.

According to YouTube, this was produced by Jim Simon's Wantu Enterprises, the same company that made equally distinctive animation for The Electric Company and Vegetable Soup.

That's pretty fantastic. My sister and I quote this thing all the time. Really an example of how good limited animation can be. Thanks for posting!
