This was one of my first attempts at realising frame-by-frame animation. I depicted «Sparky» the fireball as my character of choice and let him do fireball stuff (and not so fireball stuff). The goal was to use the physical properties, apply the principles of character animation and give a sense of animacy to the character by animating it and thus conveying the story of its personality.

Sparky’s idle and jumping animation.
Sparky suddenly sees an unlit friend bounce by and lights her up. And she gives him a special greeting.
When Sparky finds himself in a little rage, he inhales oxygen violently and turns into a flammable Godzilla kinda thing.
