Looking for outstanding examples of animations and videos that explain a difficult-to-understand concept or topic. Not KhanAcademy-type, but rather interactive Flash works or videos with 3D animation.

I'm looking for great examples of Web animations or YouTube videos that break down a topic for people with little or no knowledge of that topic.
I'm aware of KhanAcademy and the plethora of YouTube and podcast tutorials, but I'm thinking of Web sites that use Flash to explain a subject in a non-linear fashion, or videos that also combine 3D with voice over or an instructor.
So an example might be a Flash project that shows how a car engine works, and the user could click on the parts of the engine to see how it functions in the system.
Best of all would be works that do this kind of instruction in really novel ways that are beneficial for the user -- making it easier for them to understand rather than just making the experience new or pretty.
