Animator vs. Animation
In the first episode, the Animator creates a stick figure in Flash which he names "victim". However, just as he's about to drop an animated weight onto "victim", the stick figure breaks free and wreaks havoc through flash. The Animator attempts to delete him but to no avail and he eventually has to deal with multiple copies the stick figure made of himself. Eventually though, the animator decides to just exit the window without saving, seemingly destroying the stick figure.
Animator vs. Animation II
The Animator later tries again to animate a stick figure to mess around with, creating the Chosen One. However, upon his creation, the Chosen One starts attacking the Animator's cursor, later breaking out of the application and wreaking havoc on the computer's desktop. The Animator sends his desktop icons (Firefox, AOL Instant Messenger, iTunes and My Computer) to attack the Chosen One, but fail. While the AIM icon keeps the Chosen One busy, the Animator contacts a programmer to ask for help on how to defeat the Chosen One. However, the Chosen One defeats the AIM icon, causing the AIM tab to close. As the Chosen One tries to shut down the computer, the Animator uses avast! Antivirus to attack and defeat the Chosen One. The Animator then re-appropriates the Chosen One as a pop-up blocker, forcing the Chosen One to use his fire abilities to destroy ads.
Animator vs. Animation III
While using the enslaved Chosen One to destroy ads, the Chosen One clicks on a link to a site against stick figure slavery. A pop-up appears saying it could free the Chosen One, but the Animator makes the Chosen One use his pop-up-blocking fire destroys it. Angered the Chosen One attacks the cursor and frees itself from the Animator's enslavement. The Chosen One destroys the Web browser and starts damaging/devouring an important essay written by the animator. Clippy then appears and offers his help to the Animator in killing the Chosen One. The Animator agrees and the three engage in battle in the Word document. Though the Chosen One manages to defeat Clippy, the animator creates a new, red stick figure called the Dark Lord and gives him the mission of destroying the Chosen One. The Chosen One and the Dark Lord have an epic duel while the Animator plays a game of Solitaire. The Chosen One manages to defeat the Dark Lord and convinces him to turn on his creator by showing him that the Animator was playing Solitaire the whole time, not caring that his creation was about to be killed. The stick figure duo then attacks the cursor and destroys all of the applications the Animator brings up. The two then used their combined powers to create a whirlwind, which they use to destroy the computer, giving the Animator the Blue Screen of Death.
Animator vs. Animation IV
A few years later, the Animator creates a new orange stick figure known as "The Second Coming" on his new computer. While the Animator goes away to do laundry, the orange stick figure starts, coming across a Flash animation of four different-colored stick figures fighting. The orange stickman frees the four stick figures and they quickly become friends. The five explore the Animator's desktop, coming across his Facebook page. They start messing around, however, when the animator comes back and sees the five stick figures, he begins to erase them. The orange and green stick figures hug each other as the animator erases the latter, causing the orange stick figure to become enraged.
The newly dubbed "Second Coming" goes on an angry rampage through the animator's computer and later his phone. The Second Coming eventually comes across Flash and draws several animals to wreak havoc. However, after seeing how good the Second Coming's drawings are, the animator stops going after him and offers to let him roam free if helps him animate, so as long as he does not destroy the animator's computer. The orange stick figure is resistant at first, though after the animator brings back the orange stick figure's friends, he agrees.
A few months later, the Animator and the Stick Figure finish up an animation of a pegasus standing atop a cliff, having put aside their differences and become friends in the end.
Animator vs Animation Shorts
In "The Flashback", it is revealed that the Chosen One and the Dark Lord escaped the destruction of the first computer by escaping into the internet. While there, they spread chaos and destruction as they attacked various websites, though eventually the Dark Lord began to become especially ruthless and violent, to a point where even the Chosen One was appalled. Eventually, the Dark Lord developed a new computer virus called ViraBot.exe, which it planned to send to computers all over the world. The Chosen One, however, envisions a horrific future where the Dark Lord and an army of viruses plunge all computers in the world, as well as the internet, into chaos and destruction. The Chosen One tries to stop the Dark Lord from sending out the virus, but the two do battle. One virus is sent to the Animator's computer before the machine is destroyed, and the Dark Lord escapes. The Chosen One reluctantly goes after the virus to stop its spread, forced to return to the Animator's computer. The virus arrives first, and the Chosen One then is stopped by the firewall and begins breaking through into the computer to stop it.
In "The Virus", The Second Coming and the Animator are animating when they discover that ViraBot is on the computer. The Second Coming tries to exterminate it, but it turns out to be a more dangerous opponent than previously thought. The Animator helps the Second Coming fight by animating tools and barriers, but ViraBot holds them both off. The Animator gains an upper hand by repeatedly slamming ViraBot with a window, so the Second Coming goes to get Blue, Red, Green, and Yellow to help. ViraBot attacks them, but the Animator saves them. However, the Virus destroys the Animator's cursor and destroys the start menu, forcing him to do nothing but watch. The stick figures battle ViraBot, but are overpowered when it produces glue-like webbing that traps them. As it approaches to kill the Second Coming, an explosion and portal suddenly opens. The Animator and the stick figures stare on with shock and horror as the Chosen One emerges and attacks ViraBot.
In "The Chosen One's Return", the Chosen One does battle with ViraBot, who takes over the computer to try and stop the stick figure. However, the Chosen One is victorious, destroying the virus. Before leaving, the Chosen One stops and looks to the Animator. The two nod to each other, silently making amends before the Chosen One opens a portal to the internet, with the other stick figures following.
