Animation packages are good at making physically realistic animations. However, they lack the ability to automatically inject cartoon style effects such as extreme deformation of limbs. We present a technique for automatically introducing deformations into the animation of rigid objects. We animate models, including that of a stick-man, so that the model deforms flexibly, adding character.
