Great question and deserves its own thread!!

I just watched a French show on Netflix called "Call My Agent" ("Dix Pour Cent" in French) and it was a really fun drama/comedy. I watched it in French with English subtitles. It really helps to get the "real" language flowing into you. Warning: it's a bit discouraging when you realize how far you have to go.... On the other hand, by the end of binge-watching two full seasons of the show, I was picking things up a little bit better. So it's definitely a fun way to augment the grind of studying.

There is a French anime called Code Lyoko, which was what I watched in my childhood. The story is very interesting and I love the characters. I also agree that The Adventures of Miraculous Ladybug and Cat Noir is also very good. I started watching it recently (not in French, but I should) and it's incredibly hilarious and gives me Shugo Chara! vibes, if you know what that show it.

A good comedy that's not too hard to follow language wise is "La Chevre". It's about a man named Pierre who is a walking disaster, so he is hired by the police to find a missing girl who was also reported to be a walking disaster. It takes one to find one :) A cartoon I was able to practice with was "Bouba", and it's on YouTube. It's about a bear in an American forest who befriends a Native American boy and his friend, a European girl settling into the area. It's a cute one. I've been able to find some anime dubbed in French, including "Candy Candy" and "Pandora Hearts". It's amazing what's on google haha. Happy hunting, hope you find something good!

Ok, may I start with the fact that I can only say (with knowing what I'm talking about anyway...) that most Netflix originals are translated into languages like german, and possibly french, I'd look into it if you already have Netflix...

I second this, in the cartoon, Tintin is voiced by a Parisian so he is very understandable

Il y a une serie en YouTube, Français avec Pierre.

Pierre nous donne aussi Apprendre le français grâce à des [24] films français

Il y a aussi des milliers de romans français brillants, de L'Astrée en 1627 https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Astr%C3%A9ef aux modèrnes.

«Aujourd’hui encore, cette œuvre extraordinaire est rééditée régulièrement, que ce soit dans des éditions intégrales, dans un format livre de poche ou même en bande dessinée.»

Cela comprend plusieurs traductions en français moderne.

Moi, j'ai lu de Rostand, Voltaire, Dumas père et fils, Hugo, Balzac, Flaubert, Verne, Colette, de Saint Exupery, Sartre, Camus, et Simenon, parmi d'autres.

Un certain nombre d'opéras en français sont issus de tels romans, bien que d'autres soient en italien.

Miraculous Ladybug is great. The characters are so relatable and it's just a super cute tv show

  • "Le bureau des légendes" is a very good French series about the DGSE (the French CIA). Highly recommended! There are already 3 seasons available.

  • "Dix pour cent" is also a very good series, as already mentioned by another user.

  • "Un village français" is a series about a French village during World War II. Very interesting, especially if you're a history buff. There are at least 6 seasons to my knowledge.

  • "Les revenants" is a about a French village in the Alps where some people mysteriously return years after dying, not remembering anything about their death.

And here are a few cult French comedies : Le père Noël est une ordure, La cité de la peur, Les bronzés, La grande vadrouille, Les aventures de Rabbi Jacob...
