For computer animation creation, character design is a very important factor but very hard work. Especially its motion design is very laborious work. So the authors propose new motion design method using a puppet metaphor and this paper introduces its prospective application examples. The puppet show is one of very popular entertainments. Puppets are not real characters like human actors/actresses and they cannot take real actions. However the puppet show has enough entertainment aspects. Moreover, the puppet is also children toy and it is easy to manipulate for even children. Then the authors employ the puppet metaphor for motion design of computer animation creation.
