The Internet! Full of fun, narratedexplainer videos that usually involve some kind of simple 2D animation (sometimes hand-drawn, sometimes cobbled together from other images) with a voice-over. But how are people making them? If Flash is in terminal decline, as I keep hearing, what are the most popular software tools for piecing together 2D online animation?

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. [more inside]

I love RSA Animate videos. What makes these videos so great, and to what extent can I replicate this process in attempting to convey information on complex subjects in creating my own online content? [more inside]

I want to find a video I saw on YouTube about a year ago. It was a short animation about a pig with a song in Spanish. What is it called? [more inside]

Does anyone know where the cow that appears about 2/3's of the way though this (otherwise crappy) YouTube video is from? My 3-year-old son absolutely loves it and I'd like to see if there's more from the same animation, or even by the same studio that produced it.
