In this paper the different types of 2-D computer animation are listed. It also concentrates upon developing five programs. Animated Icon Editor which uses differential compiler to create animated icons, the compiler perform data compression on successive icon frames and stores only the difference the result is a significant reduction in storage requirements and make animation faster. Background Designer, Which uses iconic interfacing to draw the background of the animation. Picture Converter and Scalar which read any image files stored in any format and convert it to our system format and then scale it to either background image size or to the icon size. Story Designer which is used to design a story from the designed animated icons and background images. Story Taller, which is used to display any stored story only by inputting the name of the story. The package which were implemented is written in Turbo Pascal 7.0.
