Flash clearly isn't the only program needed to make flash movies, games, etc...what other programs should you get if you want to make good flash movies/games?

Oh, I would disagree... you can usually get away with using just Flash :).

But if you really felt like you needed other programs to assist you, most Flash developers will also use:

Audacity/Goldwave - Audio editing program for tweaking sound effects and audio.

Photoshop/Fireworks - For advanced bitmap images and effects.

Along with the ones jmtb02 named, i also use Swift 3D. Obviously not for advanced 3D effects, but more simpler ones. Does make for some nice effects when used correclty.

But you shouldn't need all that for making a stick figure walk.

You can get away with quite a bit with only Flash.
