Don't know about any downloadable programmes, if you know some one with a programme like Flash get them to do a rip for you, its still free.
Gmax has animation to it, but it is a free 3d programme and I am not sure about sounds

RS2000's right, if you are not doing this for a profit an illegal copy of Flash isn't going to hurt anyone.

But Flash takes a heck of a lot of getting used to.

I just hope you appreciate how long it could take to not just write an episode, but to animate it.

POV-Ray is a free 3D rendering package, and includes the capability to produce series of frames for animation. BUT unless you have a separate mesh editor, the scenes have to be described in code (think many lines of BASIC). Itís not bad for robots, but biological subjects are very difficult. You would also need several computers running 24/7 to render all the frames you require in a reasonable time span.

To produce the animation from the rendered frames (and add sound) youíd need an encoder such as VideoMach. Itís shareware with a free evaluation period, after which it remains functional but watermarks the files produced. Itís so versatile itís worth registering.

if you want a 3d animation program that doesnt have such a steep learning curve as POV-ray, you may want to have a look at anim8or at:

yeah, i said 3d. i recon the best bet, if your serious about this, is a ripped version of flash pro 8 and LOT of drawings. To add sound you can use flash, but i think its not good quality.
you need 3d to. if you cant use that anim8or, theres also sketchup. just search google nad youll be able to find it. it would be the easiest 3d program on the earth.
