Chuckimation

Chuckimation is a type of animation created by the makers of the cartoon Action League Now! in which characters/props are thrown, or chucked from off camera or wiggled around to simulate talking by unseen hands, combined with traditional stop motion animation.[1]

An animation style similar to chuckimation is used in the show A Town Called Panic, where clay figures are posed and moved by a strange force. Every time they talk they move a little, and their mouths don't move.[citation needed]

Chuckimation is an extremely limited and primitive form of animation (though it falls within the range of stop-motion), and it is among the least expensive and time-consuming forms of the practice.
