It depends on what you mean by "and stuff".
Organic modelling and animation is one of the things Houdini does very well. Checking out the Houdini gallery (http://www.sidefx.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogsection&id=22&Itemid=279&limit=24&limitstart=24) at sidefx.com and videos with Houdini on youtube, one sees a lot of organic "stuff".
As far as character, it is my understanding that Houdini is not used as much for the animation, but often for character (organic?) effects such as clothing, footprints, fur, etc.
Let meknow what you want to try and I'll try to point you toward a related tutorial.
