Sounds great! Animation is the best.
Just remember how both it and YouTube channels are insanely hard work, that's all. Definitely press on, I just find it is very, very wise to go into such things knowing that there will be days when it feels like more work than it's worth. Those are the days you have to sit up straight in your chair and force yourself forward! Those are the make it or break it days.
Can't wait to see what you come up with! Keep us posted.
