I liked the part where the army men danced.

A stop-motion animation question from someone who knows nothing about it:

What if, to smooth out the jerkiness that seems inherent in the medium, someone was to generate, between each captured frame, a morph-frame as a visual continuity bridge?

It certainly wouldn't put an arm at waist level, between an arm at one's side and an arm over one's head, but I bet it would smooth the motion in a wierd and possibly interesting way... plus, it would be a great way to slow down and add "filler" to an unexpectedly thin capture sequence that ended up pushing the limits of one's patience.

Has this been done?

This is so lovely! It's long, but keeps providing innovations (Oh, now there's a couple dancing! Oh, now they're ice skating!) that make it worth the whole watch.

There is no way I could've told you this five minutes ago, but this is exactly what I needed right now. I started giggling at about 1:20 and never quite stopped.
