    Wow, that was good, brilliant even, for a first ani.
    Yeah, now that you have the very basics down, work on other stuff, list below:

    1. Smoothness: Easily done, basically lower the distance you move the stickman's joints or any objects each frame, to make it look smoother and less rushed.

    2. Easing: This is basically used to add a more realistic feel to your animations. Just start moving the stk a small distance each frame, then a longer distance, then a shorter distance again, for example |-|--|---|----|---|--|-| instead of |--|--|--|--|--|--|--|.

    3. Physics: Basically making the force of gravity look more apparent in your animations, so that it doesn't look like your stickmen float everywhere.

    For a more in depth example of all this stuff look at Baha's Mega Tut (here)

    Work on these and your anis will look waaayy better.

    It was choppy, but it's a first, so eh. Work on everything James said. Try making tests for specific movements and effects, also. It helps you get the hang of things. Have fun animating!

    dude that's great for a first
    mine sucked lol well to help you out go to tutorials and read bahas it helps alot.
    have fun animating more but i give you some advise....make the pivot smaller and dont tend to use default download or make you own its fun and more original.
