    Create a sprite object. Have it store every frame of animation. For simplicity stake, just save every frame as its own gif (although realistically a sprite she would be better). anyway, include ever animation frame you'll need in this sprite, and write some sort of code for cycling them at the desired rate. There might be better/simpler ways, and a lot of it depends on your API, but somethingl ike that should work as a start.
