Mrs. Potts from Disney's Beauty and the Beast is just the kind of influence for teapot animation I need.
Her walk cycle is much more of a jumping or hopping cycle. The character has only a single 'foot' as it were and as such her movement has a somewhat similar appearance to a rabbit or kangaroo.
The walk cycle I intend to use for my teapot is going to be more bipedal in manner, having the base of the teapot curve up in the middle so as to create two makeshift feet. I was thinking something along the lines of the brooms from Fantasia.
