    bribes to those of you who may recognize me and be able
    to set me up with a killer avatar...

    GifBuilder - Fast Free and Effective

    I recommend GifBuilder.

    It's freeware and works perfectly.

    Building an animated avatar is like doing stop-motion animation.

    You'll want to make a gif image for every stage of the animation. Using GifBuilder, available for OS 9 and OS X, you then import each image. You can then set the animation properties for the gif. The software does the rest.

    One caveat: Each gif - for each stage of the animation - has to be the same image size.
