Microsoft PowerPoint is a program designed to create presentations using static slides, similarly to classic projector screens, but with added presentation features such as animations. You can also use PowerPoint in a bevy of other ways, including animations. Using the static slide feature, you could draw up different pictures, similarly to classic cartoon animation, and have the images appear one after another to create the appearance of animated movement, such as a stick figure walking or stick figures fighting.

Open Microsoft PowerPoint and start a new presentation. Clear all contents on the first slide by pressing Ctrl+A then the delete button.
Locate the "Autoshapes" toolbar on the bottom of the window. The toolbar has the "line" and "circle" shapes necessary to create stick men. Use the tools to create the stick men animation you desire on that first.
Create a new slide by pressing Ctrl+M.
Copy and paste the contents of the previous slide to the current slide.
Move the lines and circles on the stick figures slightly to portray movement from slide to slide. Repeat the process as many times as necessary to complete your animation.
Preparing your stickman fight animation
Click on the "Slide Show" drop down bar then click "Slide Transition."
Under the "Advance Slide" section click "Automatic" then select how long you'd like each slide to appear before it transitions to the next slide. Generally, the faster the transition, the smoother the animation.
Press Ctrl+F5 to view your slide show.
