I want to do some text animations. However, when I place in my text layer and type in my text it comes up a a bunch of black blocks, as per my screen shot.

Can anyone please tell me why this is and how I can fix this?
You set your stroke to be 100 pixels wide.
To clarify your stroke is set to larger than your font size and the stroke is set to lay over the fill. Turn off the stroke and you'll be fine. You can also click on the three little lines in the top right corner of the text palette and select Reset.
