But as much as I love frisky felines and charismatic canines, there are only so many videos I can watch of cats playing keyboards or French bulldogs riding skateboards, with or without sunglasses. Through luck, chance, serendipity — and some fortunate web surfing— I've found some YouTube video series that are more feast than junk food for the brain and soul. They're enormously entertaining and — dare I say it — also educational at times.
