From Ryan's intro:
When you complete this tutorial, you will have a fully rigged character (with facial expressions and skeleton) and an animation, lip synched to sound, starring your character. You'll end up with the tools and knowledge to make your own character and make it do whatever you want. It's your one-stop-shop for learning many of the tools in Blender.
From modeling to animation to lip synching, Ryan certainly seems to have covered almost everything imaginable to create a great animated character.
