Family Guy Pencil Test Animation - Der Kommissar

Hey Folks,

I came across this clip on my computer today.  Back when I was on family guy as a revisionist I got to do some pretty fun pieces of animation.  This bit here was a take off on the Falco video for "Der Kommissar."

I got the video and exports the key poses to use as reference.  The tricky part was to animate the puppet like it was a marionette where the motivation of movement was coming from the strings and not from the character.  I always was marveled when i'd see that in Pinnocho, and here I got to do a little of it myself. - Family Guy Clip
