Grab a pic, move a mouth, add a voice?

I'm looking for easy/cheap (free?) software or website to make quick/simple animations for a nephew. Nothing too nutty, because not lots of free time.. maybe like a toned-down version of JibJab where I can use existing photos, make mouths move, and add some dialogue or sounds. Thanks for any help.

I've been looking for something usable (simple for kids) for awhile - unfortunately I have no real suggestions.

Searching brings up a few - but nothing like what I envision...

Claymation Studio might be worth a try. They have a free trial.

Give Blabberize a shot. It's pretty low on the feature set but it's great at setting up a mouth/jaw movement and then having them auto-animate based on sounds.

I'd try the editing features of Voicethread or Jaycut. Story Creator is also pretty fun, and you might be able to program something like you want with Scratch.

I too am looking and HAVE been looking for something EXACTLY like JibJab (al a Monty Python)

The above mentioned are more animation DRAWING programs....
