For those who didn't quite get what anticipation is,
Anticipation basically means letting the viewer know that the character/object is going to do something, like bending before a jump, the part where the character bends down is called anticipation. That's about it.
Hope this helps =)

This is awesome. You explained it pretty well. The best video so far. Trying to do it myself now :D

Heya, I am having a slight bit of trouble appending this into blender. I can get the rig and I can get the ball with tail. unlike previous two rigs, this doesn't seem connected. Right now I have made the rig the parent yet my tail doesn't seem to connect to the rig. Any help would rock. :)

It would be nice if you went over the bone setup here - in particular the setting up of the Tail point and constraints.

For those who are trying to figure out what he did at 20:38 He changed the "transformation orientation".
