I recommend:

Pause looking at finger before smelling; 'I wonder... does it smell?'
Animated exaggeration of face - eyes, mouth, colour of cheeks, forehead
More dramatic, pose-driven falling - pausing to show new facial expression

It's funny little gag. I like the scratch and the shape animation at the bum. But the falling part in the end is weightless. And I think his reaction for the smell should be more 'smelly'. His face looks like he's sleepy now.

make it more smelly !! :eek:

not bad at all! simple, and funny.

if i may make some suggestions, id say that you should re-think the first part of the fall.. its a little unclear what hes trying to do with his arms.. but after he hits the tree, the fall looks good to me.

also, maybe you could push his final facial expression.. maybe his butt REEEEALLLY smells yknow?

you could also consider some secondary action to the ears.. but i do like his stiffness as he's falling.. so thats just a maybe.

i like it!
