Pocoyo (Netflix)

Pocoyo is an educational animated series that was originally produced in Spanish, but you can see it in English or Spanish on Netflix.

The animation on this one is different from a regular cartoon, as it looks very three-dimensional and lifelike.

Plaza Sésamo Season 15 (Amazon Prime Video)

The iconic preschool show, Sesame Street, is available in Spanish on Amazon Prime Video!

Known as Plaza Sésamo, the great thing about it is that it’s not an English show dubbed over with Spanish voice actors. It’s actually filmed throughout Latin America, and this season is the first time the show was filmed in Colombia.

You’ll recognize some of your same favorite Sesame Street characters, and also be introduced to some new ones as well.

Sésamo also has an awesome Spanish website for kids here.

El Mundo Fantástico de Richard Scarry (Amazon Prime Video)

My kids have been absolutely obsessed with Richard Scarry books basically since they were born. It’s probably because I loved Richard Scarry growing up, and was excited to pass that love onto them.

I was super excited to find The Busy World of Richard Scarry on Amazon, but was even more excited to find it there in Spanish as well!

It’s called El Mundo Fantástico de Richard Scarry and features all of our faves like Lowly Worm, Huckle, Sally, Mr. Frumble, and Bananas.

Vocabulario Con Fred & Fiona (Amazon Prime Video)

Vocabulary With Fred & Fiona is a show produced by BabyFirst, a TV channel that primarily targets 0-3 year-olds.

The Spanish version, Vocabulario Con Fred & Fiona, is available on Amazon.

In each episode, an object appears on a magic board, and Fred and Fiona talk about the object and where it belongs.

As the name implies, it’s a great show for building Spanish vocabulary.

This version has Spanish audio, with optional English subtitles.

Mother Goose Club: Español (Amazon Prime Video)

Mother Goose Club: Español, the Spanish version of the popular Mother Goose Club, has seasons 1-3 available on Amazon Prime Video.

It features a ton of Spanish nursery rhymes and songs for preschoolers.

Each “episode” is only a couple minutes long, and features one song or nursery rhyme. Some of them are cartoons, and others are live actors dressed up in colorful outfits.

It’s very entertaining to watch!

Peppa Pig in Spanish (YouTube)

There’s no way I could write this post without mentioning Peppa Pig, a long-time favorite in our house.

Did you know that you can watch episodes of Peppa Pig in Spanish? They’re available for free on YouTube.

My three-year-old often speaks with a British accent, thanks to Peppa!

Spanish Shows For Older Kids

Nuestro Planeta is the Spanish version of Our Planet, a Netflix documentary series all about the impact of climate change on our beautiful planet.

The best part? The Spanish is spoken fairly slowly, and is relatively easy to understand!

A live multimedia spectacle based on the show, Our Planet Live in Concert, will begin its world tour in October 2020, so keep your eyes open for that.

Planeta Absurdo (Netflix)

Planeta Absurdo, the Spanish version of Absurd Planet, is a Netflix original docuseries narrated by Mother Nature herself, highlighting the incredible animals that we share this planet with.
