I have tried the following code:

ParametricPlot[{Sin[12 u] Cos[u], Sin[12 u] Sin[u]}, {u, 0, 2 Pi}]


and it produced the following image: MATLAB has a cometcomet command that will draw this parametric plot in real time, allowing the viewer to watch as the particle traces out the plot. Is there a way to do this in Mathematica?
