When your characters are faced with a problem they have to make choices to fix those problems and those choices will reveal their true character. Conflict can be a springboard for comedy, drama, suspense, etc. and a great way to show off your animation skills and an opportunity to go beyond movement and more into character based performance. One of my favorite clips on Youtube serves as today's example illustrating my point. The timing is great and his choice to fix his "problem" still cracks me up!
