Online reference site for animation
( shoot your own reference, it will be MUCH better and more specific! but you can use this in a pinch or to get started )

There doesn't seem to be any way to download the videos from this, but you can grab them by looking in the source for .flv files.

FLV Conversion
Free, Open-Source, cross-platform video conversion

Quicktime Player 7
OSX: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL923

Nice video player with frame-by-frame scrubbing. Get Pro version for export and basic editing capabilities.

Nifty paint / draw program with transparent window overlay feature, great for quickly doing thumbnails / reference


Free, Open-source general-purpose image editing

Plugins for GIMP that convert layers to a spritesheet layout
Sprite Sheet / Animation Tiles
