This was the end-version of the main character sprite for the Hangover II promotional movie launch game, Crouching Monkey Hidden Chow.
He underwent several iterations, probably at least 10 - some very detailed, some VERY blocky, and even had half of his sheets done at twice this resolution and color depth, but this was the middle-of-the road version that was eventually decided upon for use as it was simple looking to keep the pixelly look they wanted, but not so undetailed so that he was still discernable.
This animation is a merge of a bunch of his animation states:
walk cycle - jump - jumpkick - crushed - idle - kick - punch - electrocuted - faint/death - burning death - electrocuted death - being hit
Here are some of the higher resolution states, the rest of the states weren't punched together because a call to change styles came up.
