The purpose is to provide students Spanish grammar explanations in clear, concise animated videos primarily in English but with Spanish examples that they can watch where and when they are needed. There will be a main character throughout the series, Carlos, an animated college-aged native Spanish speaker from a Spanish-speaking region with a neutral accent. His English is also native or near-native. Carlos is joined by 5-6 friends who are learning Spanish and ask questions to better understand. At times these friends will also supply answers and explanations that they have figured out (i.e. - Carlos is not the sole voice of authority on this subject).
Below are links to a few TedEd animated videos whose light, yet straightforward, non-parodied tone and could serve as a possible model. We want to avoid an authoritative tone, and instead we want to have Carlos casually explaining his language to his curious friends. As much as possible we're going to avoid asking rhetorical questions.
