This is the best thing ever.

The longer I watched that bear dance the more I thought: there's a repression there, a hidden madness. His dancing is so prim, so stiff, so aching to be perfect... but underneath that is desperation and mommy issues and a tendency to hallucinate... And the more I looked the more I thought that maybe I can sexually harass him enough that he'd break loose and have what it would take to be the lead in my next production, to be able to be both the brown bear and also the black bear at the same time in my daring new production of Bear Lake

The bear cannot twist, but his moves are beautiful.

no music or (presumably) draggable dancer positioning in iOS. but, fuxake, who cares?

Took me a while to find the resize tab in the bottom right of each frame. But now, it's ON.

YOU CAN CHANGE THE MUSIC, DANCEFLOOR AND ADD DANCERS FROM THE TOOLBAR.

I REALLY LIKE THIS

I wanted to make fun of the fact that this was designed for a college-level class at Parsons, but well kid, you kind of knocked it out of the park. This makes me want to squee.

Is there a way to make a link to your setup?

I REALLY LIKE THIS TOO (though I think Apple is just phoning it in. wtf, apple? Those moves are not exactly what I would call pomaceous.)

You can have multiples if you alternate your selections - Many Maranda.

It is Friday evening here in Melbourne, and my computer monitor is groovvviiin!

Could use a little more variety on the music loops (no Rickroll? no Gangnam?), and some of the characters are mislabeled... "Lil Guy" is Invader Zim's robot GIR in his 'dog suit' and "Charlie" is actually "5", a kid who explained his father was tired of names and gave all his kids names (one of the more bizarre things in the history of Peanuts)

I'm glad you can submit more dancing GIFs because there are so many other familiar possibilities... (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) and some less familiar but still semi-awesome... (1) (2) (this one's not really dancing, but he'll make you think he is)

Yes, I think I can bring this nonsense to a higher standard, and, yes, I have way too many animated GIFs.

Someone please make the BMO Dance gif transparent for this, okay?

Wait wait BMO is already there! I hang my head in shame.
And then make an ALL BMO DANCE PARTY

oneswellfoop: "Could use a little more variety on the music loops "

I'm having more fun with it set to No Music and picking stuff from my own library. My dancefloor is currently packed and everyone is workin' it to Crystal Method's American Way.

I'm a little worried though that my laptop might overheat and burst into flames from the sheer awesome emanating from it.

Behold my new Firefox homepage, now and forever. I will no longer Google things, I will just ask Carlton about them and maybe he will consult the banana.

I anticipated that this was just going to be Hampsterdance quality, and was very pleasantly surprised.

Would be cool if you could throw some of Paolo Čerić's animated gifs into the background.

Now I understand how Michaelangelo could spend 4 years painting the Sistene Chapel. Because once you've got all this important stuff to include, it just becomes so important to get it right down the finest detail.

This is wonderful. All it needs is a touch of pixelly trombone Riker. Or maybe a whole dancefloor full.

Why do I like this so much? Why do I just keep adding and rearranging and watching?

I'm tired. I just came in from a riot. I have worked hard all week. I have drunk a few beers. THIS IS EXACTLY THE RIGHT THING.
