Python Turtle Animation

How to animate more complex shapes such as Stickman in Turtle? Trying to make it jump up and down.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:


Thank you for the warm welcome and important information. I was working more on the code and still couldn’t find a solution on how I could make my stickman bounce instead of the arrow. Here is a code I am using:
If anyone could help I’d be really grateful!

I am interested about python too. plz tell more
