There’s something special about cartoons.

Cartoon Network was one of the early animation pioneers with timeless classics such as Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls and more recently Adventure time.

Back then, creating cartoons was a timely and strenuous process. It required a fine amount of detail, skill and above else, money. Fast forward to today, and well, creating cartoons has never been so simple. Easier said than done right?

Nope, it’s incredibly easy! Check out our essential steps below to help you create a classic cartoon video.

Step 1: Use the best animation maker

If you’re going to make the best video, you might as well use the best animation maker around. Moovly is a video animation maker that is entirely cloud-based. You don’t have to download any sizeable software, all you need is a web browser and an active internet connection.

So why should you use Moovly to create your animated video?

For starters, unlike many of the other animation makers out there, Moovly has a completely free license. You can sign up here to get started on creating your free animations. Moovly has 6 unique graphical Libraries with over 1000 animated assets.

Step 2: Choose a template for your cartoon video

Step 4: Add a music track or voiceover

Next up is the audio track that accompanies your animated video. Choosing the right song can play a significant impact on the success of your cartoon video. Is your cartoon video sad? Or is it a happy one? You want to choose a song that reflects and sets the mood.

The next question is whether you should add an instrumental track or one with lyrics. As a general tip, try out a few different tracks before choosing one for your cartoon video. Make sure that you are using royalty free music. The last thing you want to be involved in is a legal battle.
