Walk - With a small grin, the tanuki hops on its left front and hind legs, and then the right, then repeats.

Dance - It shakes its body back and forth, waving Japanese fans. Its tails swings round and round.

Play - A ball appears. The tanuki takes out and puts on a jester hat. It jumps on the ball, tries to balance, but falls, and then the action repeats.

Hop - It crouches down, then leaps into the air with a high jump. As it reaches ground, it falls on its hind legs, standing up. Then the action repeats.

Sleep - Laying on its sides, the raccoon dog's tail would be resting upward, and its arms would be holding a thin stick.

Sit - It would be cross-legged, with its palms touching each other.
