Go To

James Wooldridge, better known as Señor Wooly, is a singer who makes educational songs and music videos designed to teach Spanish to tweens and teens. His songs include stories and jokes that make people laugh while they learn. His most popular works include "Billy la Bufanda", a song about the strange adventures of the scarf Billy, and "¿Puedo ir al baño?", a song about a student who needs to use the bathroom.


His most popular works can be found on his official channel on YouTube, but many of his music videos can only be found on his own website.

When Señor Wooly says Billy has no teeth, the camera zooms in on Billy's teeth. You really have to wonder if Señor Wooly is telling the truth.
