Hey Amrit good research here, rather than drawing each frame of chair leg movement, you could just make it look quick and exaggerated with a few line strokes. Here's a lil' Tom and Jerry vid to show what I mean(and a lil' inspiration to help with your story?):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riGud5n7F98&feature=related (check 1:48)with the movement, its pretty much like a horse or some cat/ dog running. So you could have another look at those to see which way you think the chair would run. Good work!! :D
As Joey says, the horse/dog/cat thing...google Edward Muybridge's horse walk cycle, or most of the animation books have got a dog or cat cycle in them.
Okay I well check these up. May give me an idea.
