TOONCES WAS ACTUALLY A VERY GOOD DRIVER SNL HIRED A CHIHUAHUA, OUT HER IN A CAT SUIT, AND HAD HER DO THE STUNT DRIVING | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
You're not the first to say that. I made this GIF about 15 years ago from a photograph. Everyone swore it was Toonces.

This was one of two GIFs my sister forwarded to me not realizing I made it. The other one I posted a couple weeks ago: snowman pooping snow cones

Back In My Day Meme | BACK IN MY DAY, IT TOOK AN HOUR TO DOWNLOAD A NAUGHTY GIF | image tagged in memes,back in my day | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
imgflip.com/gif/1ivr8d is the snowman GIF.

When I first got online, I don't think they had animated GIFs. They came out the following year, and if I could use them, I snagged them.

I finally got the animation program and started using it. This and the snowman were fun ones because I didn't understand how easy the software was to use. My animations got bigger and better. I like for then to tell a story.

What is the animation program you use?

The first one was Alchemy's GIF animator program. Shareware that cost like $15 at the time. Moved up to Jasc Paint Shop Pro and Animation Shop. They were also shareware, but don't recall how much they cost. They gave Photoshop such a fun for the money that they were bought out by them.

If you understand the basic principle of animation, you've got a good start. Do you remember flipbooks in school. Fan the pages and a drawing would appear to move? Same principle. With GIFs, though, you start with a background layer, out the item you're going to animate on a new layer. Copy that item to a new layer and do your movements. There's a lot more and I'm not set up to do it here. Only have cell phone access. Each layer shows some movement. Biggest animated GIF I ever made was about 400 frames. Took me 4 hours,, but the pay was good. Some I did for fun were 70 or 80 frames.

I'd like to give it a try. I'll have to get some animation software and give it a go! Appreciate the advice!

You're in luck. Jasc and alchemy mind works both offer trial versions. Jasc is the better of the two, but more expensive.

Cool! Is it like adobe where you have limited usage unless you get the upgraded package or like a 30 day type deal?

Not sure, but I think it's 30 days. I've been doing this for like 18 years. LOL. I've had registered versions for a looong time.
