Here at VideoScribe, we love watching and sharing animated video content. Below we’ve spotlighted a few of our favorite animated explainer video creators to help inspire you when creating your next VideoScribe video. 


Named after the German term for  "in a nutshell," the Kurzgesagt channel creates animated explainer videos about scientific concepts, technological advancements, and philosophical ideas. 

Their signature style and eye-catching color palette make even the most intricate topics accessible to viewers of all backgrounds. Their use of storytelling and well-crafted narratives also make their 10-15 minute videos engaging and interesting throughout. 



TED-Ed, TED's youth and education initiative, brings their classic TED Talks to life. TED partners with educators and animators worldwide to produce concise and visually engaging videos that cover a wide range of subjects.
