The most important principle is "squash and stretch", the purpose of which is to give a sense of weight and flexibility to drawn objects. It can be applied to simple objects, like a bouncing ball, or more complex constructions,like the musculature of a human face. Taken to an extreme point, a figure stretched or squashed to an exaggerated degree can have a comical effect. In realistic animation, however, the most important aspect of this principle is the fact that an object's volume does not change when squashed or stretched. If the length of a ball is stretched vertically, its width (in three dimensions, also its depth) needs to contract correspondingly horizontally.

The most important animation of all

8This animation thought me allot about animation i thing a allot of people with agree with me on this that this is one of the most imported animation. The bouncing ball animation covers almost all the basic principles of animation like timing, spacing ,overlapping ,fast in n out, slow in n out an lot more.
