Methodical Study

My pal Jojo is a young whippersnapper who is constantly improving his skills.
I suggested he study some Tom and Jerry animation and copy some of the basic actions.
I have noticed over the past few years that students who study and even copy old animation do not in turn always apply what they studied to their own work.
So I suggested to Jojo to animate another character doing the same action as a Tom and Jerry action so that he would understand the principle behind the specific action.

In this case Tom is doing a simple small take.
