Russian children's shows for toddlers?
OMG this is gonna sound so ridiculous, but whatever... does anyone know if there are any TV shows in Russian aimed for very young children? I'm thinking like here in the USA, we have Dora the Explorer that teaches Spanish, Barney & Sesame Street teach English, etc... Is there anything like that in Russian? I imagine it will bore me to death but at least be educational. I still am a beginner so I am not ready for advanced material AT ALL but I think it would be useful for me to get exposed to more Russian. Thanks!
Чебурашка is also quite a cute children's show with clear-cut pronunciation. :) However, I don't think there are any episodes on Youtube with English subtitles, so it could prove to be a challenge.
My wife introduced me to this when we first started dating, and a number of the early words I learned were from it. Nice and slow speech for the most part. Definitely easier to understand than вини пу or however you'd spell it.

Good question and great answers - I will look for these videos. I sometimes get kids Russian-English dual language books from the library.
The Fixiki (Фиксики). You can find Dora the Explorer in Russian on Youtube. Instead of Spanish, they through in English. It is good in the since that there is a high level of repetition of the same phrases, so it is easy to follow. Also there is a youtube channel called https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxWkNmkeAL52VTJyBlIJRXw with cartoon and education show content
