If you think this should be an ongoing series or have someone you think could have made this list, let us know in the comment section below!
The Tin Can Brothers
The LA-based sketch comedy group delivers hilarious, though adult-themed musical entertainment in a series titled "Spies Are Forever". Heavily speckled with crude humor and adult language, The Tin Can Brothers aim for a more mature audience with their satirical James Bond-esque play. With less than 20,000 subscribers it's a shame that this quality entertainment hasn't gotten the fan base it massively deserves.
First starting in December of 2015, Casually Explained has rocketed through the subscriber count, garnering over 450,000 before their first anniversary. If you find yourself looking for all the answers to life's questions and Wikipedia happens to be undergoing scheduled maintenance, then look no further than Casually Explained. Now before you nod off, thinking you've stumbled upon another host that will scream into the microphone - rest assured, Casually Explained is for the more sophisticated crowd that enjoys more in-depth conversations, narrated by an unenthused, yet funny, monotone voice.
Easy to grasp, yet highly detailed information is given to the viewers of Geography Now's videos. Inside you'll find a plethora of information ranging from flags, history, and geographic features. Releasing videos in alphabetic order, Geography Now has taken it upon themselves to "actively attempt to cover profiles on every single country in the world". Having covered many countries ourselves on this channel, Geography Now is a concept we can get behind - so be sure to check out their videos to learn more about the world around you!
Life Noggin is self-described as a weekly animated and educational web series, with topics ranging anywhere from science, history, art and pop culture. It offers quality educational content with simplistic animations - so as not to take away from the information given - delivered in 3 to 4-minute videos. The host of the show goes by the name Blocko and the entire channel is family friendly - though much of the information in their videos may be above the heads of the younger audience.
Kids Learning Tube
An educational channel dedicated to helping children learn - Kids Learning Tube is filled with highly entertaining and educational videos for both young children and parents to enjoy. The channel was created and solely maintained by a father named Matthew, who was unhappy with the lack of educational content for kids on YouTube and other platforms. Matthew combines his passions in music and film to deliver content featuring all-original songs and custom animations that make learning both easy and fun. Like many educational channels on YouTube, Kids Learning Tube has found their way into classrooms all across the world - deviating from and improving upon the way that our youth learns today.
Cartoonist and comedian, Alex Clark brings in the laughs with animated tales of his life, which he narrates - posting a new video every Wednesday. Alex has done some crossover work with other YouTubers, such as theodd1sout and TheThirdPew. If you're a fan of awkward tales and some good clean comedy, itsAlexClark may be a good new channel for you to check into.
Life Where I'm From
Life Where I'm From is a wonderful venture for anyone desiring to get a taste of living in Japan. Following sisters Aiko, Shin and their father Greg, you'll get a taste of the typical everyday life of this stratovolcanic archipelago. For those of you who want a more adult take on life, Greg has started a secondary channel titled Life Where I'm From X - which also includes behind the scenes footage.
Sometimes with YouTube channels, it's just all in the name, and GreekGadgetGuru is one of those times. The channel really focuses on some cool ideas, showing you how to make your favorite geeky gadgets - typically bizarre weapons from video games and movies. Many of the gadgets he shows you how to make, though, can be very dangerous, so you may just want to watch him in the comfort of your own chair.
Vlogger and all around awesome guy, Omar goes to work creating content for a slightly older crowd than vlogs typically seem to be. His videos span from anything involving good deeds to dumpster diving - which is funnier than it sounds - all of which is delivered through amazing editing and a general down to Earth feel from the host. Omar started his YouTube career in 2011 and has maintained his entire channel by himself to this day. If you're looking for a "feel good" channel on YouTube, be sure to check out Omar and his many pay-it-forward style videos!
You Suck At Cooking
You Suck At Cooking is, if you can't tell by the name, a cooking channel... well, we think it's a cooking channel. In truth, the channel does show you how to cook and prepare different foods, kind of, but that's really the last reason you'd want to watch this channel. What makes their content great is the cleverly masked comedy, the occasional song, smooth and creative video editing and the oddly soothing voice of the host. So if you like to cook, and like to laugh.. well, if you like to laugh while looking at food, be sure to check them out!
