Walking, jumping text in after effects?

I've been searching the web for this but have come up with no luck so far so it may not be that easy to do (especially in after effects). I basically want to make some text jump out of our company logo and some letters to begin walking and others hopping around the screen. I want it to have that cutesy sort of look and feel like the Pixar Luxo Jr short film except instead of lamps I want the characters to be Text. I expect there's a way to do this with expressions but I'm not that up to speed with them past wiggles and slider controls. In short the text would need to be able to jump in a bouncy way and walk in a floppy way, and all the letters need to be able to bend and flex in a jelly like way. I'm going to carry on playing around in after effects the manual way but the movements just don't look right with standard key framing. Thanks in advance!
