For years i used "paint shop pro version 6" (1999).  And before that I think I used earlier versions of the same thing.  The thing I liked about it was that rather than thinking in inches, it did everything in pixels. 

Eventually, I tinkered a little with the animation thing.  Like the little bunkhouse with the smoke at the bottom.

I'm able to cobble things together with paint.  But I liked paint shop pro 6 better.  I once bought paint shop pro 10 and spent several months tinkering with it - but that got really complicated. I really liked version 6 better.

I tried GIMP for a while.  I didn't quite get the hang of it. 

Anybody have any suggestions for something that might be good for simple drawings that are pixel based - and has some animation stuff too?

I use Photoshop (edu version) and have used Paint ShopPro 7 and liked it. Photoshop included their Imageready which does animation. BUT I haven't used any really new versions as my old ones do what I need to do.

I used to love photoshop 3, now I have CS5 and I can barely use it. Basically all I can figure out how to do anymore is crop and rotate photos, color balance, or make things incredibly creepy.

I'm a photoshop guy, but Paint.NET is a good halfway point between Photoshop and MS Paint. Plenty of functionality.

Folks who are used to Photoshop sometimes have difficulty adjusting to the GIMP.

GIMPshop is GIMP modified to look and behave like Photoshop.

I have photoscape you can download it for free. I recommend that you download some free software and look which you like best. They are powerful enough for most applications. Photoshop is expensive.

I rotate between Photoshop and The Gimp.

Aviary is another option which is freeish
