This is silly but: I'm looking for a particular animated gif. It's a claymation penguin that hears the phone ringing and goes to answer it. Then his teakettle starts boiling, and then he sits down and cries, overwhelmed by too many inputs. I'm pretty sure the penguin is Pingu but no combination of search terms seems to be coming up with the image. Pretty sure I saw the gif on tumblr someplace.
Where can I find the type of "funny" pics and pages that often get circulated through email or posted on fb? I don't receive any of these forwarded messages anymore, and I don't have a facebook account. I generally don't appreciate the type of humor that I am seeking-- But, someone I care about is laid up and finds [this type of thing I'm looking for] really entertaining, and neither of us know how to source it.

I'm the lady at my office who sends out the "Everyone please wish a Happy Birthday to X!" emails. I try to include a cute animated gif in all of them. I'm running out of birthday-themed gifs a few weeks into this game. Wanna help me compile celebration and birthday gifs? [more inside]
Help me, Metafilter! Which episode of Seinfeld is this animated GIF from?
Trying to identify what movie this gif comes from. Warning: kind of really scary.
A while back, on tumblr, I saw a gif-set of some kids dancing. One of the kids is then arrested by the police, but then the camera zooms in on his feet, and you can see that he's still dancing even as he's getting arrested. Does anyone have a link for this? I can't seem to find it now, and it's driving me batty.
I need to scan a bunch of documents that are mostly simple black/white or grayscale text, lines, etc. I'm probably going to just buy a sheet-fed scanner, and I'd like recommendations for that. I'm hoping for a solution that will automatically generate PDFs with the included scanned images encoded as GIFs or PNGs or similar, since they will mostly be black/white or grayscale, which compresses much more cleanly with these formats.

Sometimes I play around with pixel art, usually in Pixen. It's great! It also has some built-in animation tools, but as soon as I want to do something with more than, say, a dozen frames, it becomes very unwieldy. [more inside]
Is this from a movie or something? I've encountered it online but can't track down its origin. It's an animated gif of a man's shoes, and they have mouths with teeth opening and closing and tongues flapping. You can see it here.
I have Illustrator and intend to make an animated GIF. A tetrahedron is a pyramid with a triangle base. I can't make the 3D extrusion on CS4 agree that I want a pyramid shape. It gave me a triangular prism, though I followed an online tutorial (but that had a square base - which might be part of the problem, and it was for CS3). (No, I don't want to use Flash or download a trial version of Maya but thanks for the thought) So, online free 3D software where I can capture a number of positions of a tetrahedron, and redraw them from within Illustrator? I will need to also place text on each face, so if I can do it in one program only, I'll be happier.
Looking for animated GIFs of sprites from Pac-Man! Hoping for all four ghosts (looking sideways is okay), a blue "oh no" ghost, Pac-Man, and big Pac-Man from the cutscene. Failing that, anyone able to point me toward an easy way to put together animated GIFs in Mac OS?

I am trying to figure out who (singularly or convergently) first came up with "cinegraphs", or just artfully subtle animated GIFs. Is there a known first instance of this? A known "wow, look what I came up with" post anywhere?

I'm writing a paper on (animated) GIFs and am trying to track down some of the most (in)famous. I suppose I am talking memes, but I'm more interested in the GIF as an archaeological reference point. I frequent sites like dump.fm, tumblr etc. so am quite tuned in to the glitchy/kitschy side of GIF culture. How theoretical have people got on these wonders of the web? How does one trace the history of an animated GIF? [more inside]
We've talked about how to make gifs before - but what about "cinegraphs?" [more inside]

I'm looking for a program that will let me quickly edit animated gifs. I'm looking to do things like combine two gifs together, applying color changes dynamically across all frames (like hue shifts and stuff), basic tweening of objects maybe...

I have a bunch of funny/interesting/neat pictures that I've accumulated over time from the internet. Rather than storing them all locally on my harddrive, any way I can do that online for free?

Hello, filter. We're making a movie in Final Cut Express, and one of our desires is to have an animated gif looping in the background during green screen footage. Yet, we are unable to do this. Does anyone have any solutions? Thanks.

I used to be able to insert animated gifs into Powerpoint and have them run when I clicked on them. Now the only way I can get them to work (following Powerpoint's own instructions) is to insert them as objects that when clicked, open in Window's "Picture and Fax viewer". Surely there's a better way? I want to make an entertaining presentation for undergraduates, not look like an old fogy who can't use new technology.
