Zelda Flipnote

Flipnote Studio lets you create animations with a stylus on Nintendo's DSi handheld console. Nintendo had a contest to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Zelda, and the quality of submissions was high (higher than this, anyway). Personal favorite: Michi from Japan's Duck Amuck homage.

Also good: A-S from Japan, Glen-i from Europe, Cheval from Europe, Kengo from Japan

I don't get it.. you linked to an actual video of the original Duck Amuck cartoon?

p.s. Flipnote Studio is an amazing program, and it's FREE!

I can't see how to link to the individual Flipnote cartoons. Bad web design.

If you really want to see all the Flipnotes that kids all over the world create, go to the Hatena Flipnote site, where they can post them to the web.

Because the easiest thing to animate is a stick figure, you end up with lots of stick figure animations.

What's interesting is that comments are made by writing with the stylus onto the DSI, so you get to see the commenter's handwriting. More sites should do this!
