"It was more like a full body dry heave set to music!"

One of the most iconic of all "Seinfeld" moments is arguably the picture of Elaine dancing, her little kicks, the upward jolting of her hands, complete with a big confident grin!

"The Little Kicks" is a memorable episode, where the plot is once again constructed meticulously. The way the plot transitions from Elaine to George OR from Jerry to George is stunning, once again helping confirm "Seinfeld" as the father of all sitcoms.

George's 'bad boy' image is excellent, and his story line is terrific, even if perhaps a tad underused. Jerry and Kramer share an excellent story, full of bootlegging! Seinfeld, though not the greatest actor, is terrific in his awkward facial expressions. I found myself laughing constantly at his facial acting!

There is little that needs to be said about the acting. Michael Richards is exceptional, and he and Jerry Seinfeld share a hilarious opening scene where they discuss what side of the sidewalk is most dangerous to walk on! Jason Alexander as a 'bad boy' is hilarious and Julia Loius Dreyfus as dancing Elaine is memorable! The excellent Jerry Stiller has a brief, but memorable appearance at the end of the episode.

"The Little Kicks" is vintage "Seinfeld". Memorable and iconic, it should not be forgotten.

"You wanna piece of me... You got it"!

The Little Kicks is one of the most famous episodes ever. Seinfeld was a show that was great to start off with and got even better towards the end. The Little Kicks proves it. The Little kicks is one of those Seinfeld episodes that has so much stuff going on in it. Many episodes are like that. Actually, it seems like every episode has a lot going on in it. The Little Kicks is definitely one of my favorite episode, and if you've seen it, you know why. The episode features a few famous moments from the series. Like Elaine's dance. I do Elaine's dance all the time, I know it looks odd. But it's funny as hell and awesome. Not only is the episode great for that, it's great because of the situation Jerry's in and the situation George is in. The Little Kicks is one of my favorite episodes, and it's a classic. Seinfeld is a classic show, so there you go.

The Plot of the episode: Elaine loses trust of her staff after she portrays an embarrassing dance at a party. She tries to accuse George. Jerry and Kramer go to see a new film called "Death Blow" with a friend of Kramer named Brody. Brody gets sick during the movie, holds Jerry at gunpoint, and forces him to bootleg a movie.

Funniest Seinfeld EVER

Besides being the funniest Seinfeld episode ever, I watch this every time it's on because of the starring actress--Rebecca McFarland who played George's potential love interest.

Watching Elaine dance and everyones' reaction to it is hilarious. Like most Seinfeld episodes, this one has lots of subplots. It's outrageously funny as Kramer brings a black-market video bootlegger to Jerry's apartment and winds up getting Jerry to film a bootleg video for the criminal.

The scene at the end is also a hoot when George's father has to rescue him from the police station. George's father insults George, Elaine insults George worse, and George's father and Elaine get into a fist fight. All the while Rebecca is sitting next to George simply looking beautiful.

Rebecca McFarland is, in my opinion, the most beautiful, alluring, and sexiest woman ever to appear on Sienfeld. Magnificent face, perfect figure, and luscious legs--what else could you ask for except more of Rebecca.

The wrong actress is listed as Anna

http://www.fandango.com/seinfeld:thelittlekicks_v327883/summary If you go into the site above you will see it is Rebecca McFarland and not Cindy Ambuehl They both look similar And people who have commented also say it is Ms. McFarland

I recently watched this episode and wanted to know who the actress was playing Anna.

When I viewed Ms Ambuehl I was like "That's not her?

Oh well it was a good episode and worth seeing over and over as are most the Seinfeld episodes.

I recently saw Ms McFarland in another show and said "Hey that is the girl from Seinfeld where George borrows his fathers GTO with the back support

"Go get 'em, Death Blow!"
juanmaffeo7 May 2016
Coming after "The Bizarro Jerry", this episode is somewhat more "normal", though it has its fair amount of weirdness.

The plot is divided into two story lines. In one, Jerry and Kramer go see the movie Death Blow with a friend of Kramer. Inside the movie theater they find out that he is a bootlegger. Eventually they get caught in this illegal business and Jerry becomes and bootleg artsy master. In the other story George and Elaine star a love-parent triangle between the two of them and one of Elaine's employees. Thanks to some commentaries Elaine gives to Anna (the employee) about George being a "bad seed", Anna now has the hots for George for his "bad boy image". The rest of the story revolves around George trying to be as bad as he can and Elaine, acting as Anna's mother, trying to set them apart. On a secondary note, Elaine has trouble keeping the respect of her staff following the incidents in the office party. This is the most memorable scene in the episode.

On a more analytical point of view, this episode has a realistic world and at the same time it touches with some absurd ground. This ground being the mother-daughter relationship between Elaine and Anna, George's shifted personality and Jerry suddenly becoming an artsy filmmaker (and that random ending). It makes sense with its own absurdity, even if this absurdity is somewhat more tamed than in the previous episode. On a side note, the two story lines are great but they never interact or collide with each other. Not a particular bad factor but a key factor to Seinfeld standards.
