Spanish TV/online series for children with English subtitles

I am looking for recommendations for Spanish series for children which have English subtitles. Any good movies in Spanish are welcome too. Thanks!

I know of a original Spanish cartoon. Its name is "David el gnomo" (David the gnome). It's quite the classic. A more modern original Spanish cartoon is "Sandra, Detective de Cuentos" (Sanda, fairy tale detective). Spanish movies that I can recommend? I don't know your level of proficiency and I don't know your preferences either but there's an awesome Spanish thriller entitled "La Caja 507"

  • You can program the audio and subtitles for Thomas the Tank Engine, DVDs contain Spanish audio and subtitles
  • Many popular Disney films (DVD/Blu-ray) allow you to change the audio & subtitles
  • I'm sure you can turn on closed-captioning for the variety of childrens programs on Univision, UniMas y Telemundo

Would you have any specific recommendations for a 7 year old and a 14 year old? Yes, that is some age gap there so they have very different interests :)

They both seemed to like the series of Erase Una Vez El Cuerpo Humano but I can't seem to find it subtitled.

My son is 4 so I'm not really in that world yet.

14? Maybe Disney XD programs or Nickelodeon español. If you're in the EEUU you may not be able to access their .es videos but there are a lot of dubbed content on YouTube. If your 14 year old is into video games, then you can find tons of "Let's Play" videos (Spanish with English subtitles. Note, some of them contain adult content.

http://www.bookbox.com/ BookBox may work well for the 7 year old.

I just found http://mx.mundonick.com

De nada, You may be able to access Disney XD for Spain http://www.disney.es/disney-xd/

I found the Frozen song "Let it Snow" en español with English subtitles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqJBcfNIRjc

I don't know if you're kids are into Disney songs but there's bunch of them on YouTube. Finding them (w/ English subtitles may be difficult)

Perro y Gato is a great children's tv show on HBO. I've even watched a few episodes alone to learn a few things. I love it.
