About Sam O'Nella Academy

“Hey, it's that stick figure from YouTube.” Featuring random facts explained through personality-rich yet primitively digital drawings, the Sam O’Nella Academy dishes the most random of facts, musings and myth debunkings to it’s 1M+ subscribers. From “Historical Misconceptions For You to Bring Up during Family Dinner,” to the psychotic undertakings of the carnivorous shrike, this hilariously twisted Academy is far outside your typical curriculum. With accompanying Twitter quips to a following of 30K+, this stick figure educator has truly graduated to the next level as an educator.
