The supplementary material for the book __Mathematica for Physics, 
Second Edition_, by Bobert L. Zimmerman and Frederick I. Olness, 
Addison-Wesley 2002, contains a complete example of what you want to 
achieve.

The archives are freely available at 
http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Books/4539/

Download one of the files named OlnessZimmermanBook.zip/.uu/.sea.hqx 
depending on your system, and extract the notebook called 
*AnimationSample.nb*

"This sample generates a simple Mathematica graphic in a single output 
cell."
