- r.setBounds() reshapes an existing Rectangle r object.
- For animation purposes of animation there some quite good examples. I paste a link. You have to apply some changes in order to customize it properly.

You can create many threads the same two ways you create one. Well, then the codes differs a little bit.
If your threads inherit the Thread class, then you can create as many as you want just by calling the new operator, then object.start() and there they go.
If you implement the Runnable interface in a class (let say the applet itself) to make it have different thread then you have to do the following:
- in the constructor: c1 = new Thread(this); //where 'this' is a reference to the object (the applet) that implements the runnable interface and c1 is a variable where you store reference to the thread object in case you need it later. If you create many Threads you have to store in a vector or a hash table or several variables. The you call c1.start() in order to start the Thread execution. This means the run() method is called for the object implementing the Runnable (remember, you passed the this reference as an argument to the constructor of the thread) This run() will be called in a separate thread as many times as threads you got.
- Then in the run() method you do the following:
public void run()
{
  Thread temp = java.lang.Thread.currentThread();
  if (temp == c1)
  {
    //do the stuff thread c1 has to do
  }
  else if (temp == c2)
  {
    //do the stuff thread c2 has to do
  }
.
}
Cheers.
