I've changed things a little in the cartoon and reuploaded it (see opening post to watch). The "from" in the title is now a "by" and I've added a "Written by" credit to the host to make it clearer that what proceeds is his own ridiculous interpretation of the past. I know these are minor changes but hopefully they make the cartoon a little less offensive.

"People also ask
How much does adobe animate cost?
Cost. Finally let's look at what it will cost to actually get the software. The only way to buy Animate is through a subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud. It starts at $19.99/month if you buy an annual subscription or $29.99/month to buy one month at a time.

Yeah, Flash/Animate are stupidly expensive. I'm lucky in that I have my old copy of Flash from approximately fifteen years ago, back in the days when you could get it on CD. To be clear: none of the drawing in my cartoon was done on Flash, it was done in Photoshop (which, I believe, costs the same amount). I only used Flash to layer the frames together (add foregrounds to backgrounds) and export the frames as video files.
I think you can get a free demo of Flash/Animate for a week or so. Might be worth having a quick play-around on it.
And you'll probably need a drawing tablet, if you don't have one already.
