I am trying to create a similar style runner to this which was done in flash.

I am having trouble getting the legs right... I have tried creating two sections for the leg and moving the anchor points to the hip and knee respectively. I have also tried to use a bezier shape and animated that but can't quite seem to get it to work. Apart from a frame by frame key are their any other options to get the bend in the legs to look natural?

If realism or a natural look is what you're going for, I'd go ahead and animate each frame as there are only about 5-6 frames in the entire animation for the leg.
