Charlie y Lola - Spanish Cartoons

Someone suggested these videos on YouTube to help with Spanish listening comprehension. They're my favorites because:

  1. no subtitles. (I'm lazy & if there are english or spanish subtitles I will read them instead of really listening)

  2. the stories are cute and interesting (if you've ever tried to watch spanish cartoons they can be as obnoxious as english cartoons)

  3. the talking speed and voices are easy to follow, while being natural.

here's a link:

Anyone else have any YouTube suggestions??

I found Señor Jordan on Youtube. He does videos with stories and also lessons on conjugations, grammar, and such. The stories are really fun, and interesting enough to make you excited for the next episode:

That's perfect, thanks for posting that, but I'm probably more at the Teletubbies stage of Spanish development lol.

I'm probably at the the "Dora the Explorer" stage, but I hope one day to attain the teletubbies stage!

I quite like Ext@ en español. It's a sitcom designed for English speakers learning Spanish:

Thank you for the link to Extr@ en español! Been watching this for the last three days alongside lessons on duolingo and speaktribe. It's very enjoyable to watch and I've even learned several words. Would definitely recommend.

How about the Simpsons in español?! It's not on Youtube, but it's free and here's the link:

¡Ay Caramba!

Omg yes. The ones I clicked on were a little past my level but I will totally watch these when I get there.

Especially given I have most episodes pretty well memorized, this is a great way that I can follow along without getting confused. This is a game-changer for me.

Kids shows are the best because they have to be dubbed - you can't just slap subtitles on a show for people who can't read yet! They also have simple storylines and vocabulary for us new-language-learners to grasp easily, while still being very authentic, as they're being aimed at native speakers.

As a brony, my first choice of spanish-dubbed cartoons is, of course, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It took some creative googling thanks to Hasbro passing out Cease & Desists like candy on hallowe'en, but I managed to find a channel on Daily Motion that had full episodes of Latina Ponies.

There are also shows designed to teach languages. For anglophones, the BBC Languages website has some pretty great resources for several languages, not just Spanish. :-)

That's a good idea to look for dubs of your favorite animated shows though I gotta admit, 'latina ponies' really sounds like a porn title ;)

Thanks for the suggestion! Here's El patito feo:

or just search for 'dibujos animados' on youtube ;)

I used to love that show!

It's from England by the way; this is a re-dub.

Thanks for the suggestion! I've been watching Caillou in Spanish, which is also very chill compared a lot of modern cartoons. Also, each episode is short and thematic which makes it easier to pick up new vocabulary. :) (I think you may need Hulu Plus to watch an entire episode at that link but there are also episodes on YouTube).

edit: someone uploaded a video that's 9 hours (!) of the Spanish version to YouTube -

I used to love that show too! :D

Your YouTube link did not work for me, but I found another one:

April 24, 2014

This is not youtube and I don't think there are any Spanish subtitles. There are 50 or more episodes. It quite cute if you ever had a Barbie doll, you may like it:

April 25, 2014

Oh, that's cool! So you really can see how much of the language you can already understand :)

April 25, 2014

I found this show on reddit. It's called Extr@

Pretty simple and easy to follow story.

Também costumo assistir Peppa Pig, pois os diálogos são uteis e não é tão dificil de acompanhar!
