Roblox Default Animate Script but as local script and working on NPCs

I have a script that is the roblox default animations script, but it is a script, and I need it to be a localscript and work on NPCs, because in my game a folder on replicatedstorage goes to workspace by localscripts when the times run out, so because it appear locally (just for the player) the regular script don’t work.

I tried just copying and pasting on a LocalScript inside of the character but it did not work.

function waitForChild(parent, childName)
	local child = parent:findFirstChild(childName)
	if child then return child end
	while true do
		child = parent.ChildAdded:wait()
		if child.Name==childName then return child end
	end
end

local Figure = script.Parent
local Humanoid = waitForChild(Figure, "Humanoid")

LocalScripts don’t run in Workspace. You would be significantly better off writing your own animation logic running from PlayerScripts in this case that can attach animation processes arbitrarily to any client-side NPCs you drop into the Workspace.

Can you show me how I can do this?
