Looking for some German cartoons so I can improve my listening ability and increase my vocab

The title is pretty self-explanatory. I've come cross a show called "Die Sendung mit der Maus" but they don't seem to talk in it.

What you want to watch from Die Sendung mit der Maus is the Sachgeschichten. Not cartoons, but they will give you plenty of vocabulary (as well as teach you loads of neat stuff, in wonderful ways).

Janoschs Traumst√ľnde! I've been meaning to put this link here for you for ages and kept forgetting. I think you'll find it's just right for you:


Here's a rather famous one to start with, if you like.


I used to watch Calliou in german.


If you just want to improve your hearing then even go ahead and watch shows like "Die Simpsons" oder "Spongebob Schwammkopf" which are just examples of two popular cartoons that we also have in Germany


The Simpsons seems a bit too much for a beiginner like me.


I disagree. I've watched Futurama and other TV shows in German, and it was 'above my level'. But, what is really is important is to train your ear with more complex sentences and speech, even if you don't understand it at this point.
