eLearning Brothers is a great resource for instructional designers to access graphics and templates for use in Captivate, Articulate, PowerPoint, and other software. Captivate actually installs with some cutout characters and provides a direct link to the eLearning Brothers website where you can download more.

eLearning Brothers Characters were added in Captivate 9.
