Spanish Shows On Netflix – For Kids

If you are looking to reinforce Spanish with your bilingual kids, or just want to introduce more Spanish to your home Netflix can be a great way to do so! Almost all of these shows are in English too! 

13 favorite Spanish Netflix shows for young children- and instructions for how to change audio and subtitle settings to Spanish in Netflix.

So Many Spanish Kid’s Shows!

The number one question I receive from bilingual parents is about watching TV in Spanish. I get it- it takes a village to raise bilingual kids, and technology (in thoughtful moderation) can be a huge help for kids who want to learn Spanish

Luckily there has been a huge rise in access to television shows in Spanish for kids -especially Spanish cartoons! This means kids can learn new vocabulary from their TV shows, and it doesn’t cost much.

This article focuses on shows I have found to watch Netflix- we find the paid subscription is worth it for us because there are so many movies and tv shows we can watch in both English and Spanish.

There are tons of other resources for Spanish television programming- recently PBS Kids launched a Spanish language channel on Amazon, and our Amazon Prime membership gives us access to Sesame Street in Spanish too. 

Even Disney has some great shows and movies in Spanish on Disney+– we love the Lion King! You can change your profile setting to Spanish over there too.

How To Get Spanish Children’s Shows on Netflix

In order to change the audio to Spanish (or select other languages), you simply go into the audio and subtitles menu and check if there is a Spanish option available.

Select it- and viola! This, of course, works for lots of adult movies too, if you are a parent wanting to brush up on our Spanish. You can also allow Spanish subtitles with Spanish audio or do Spanish audio with English subtitles if your kids are learning to read. The possibilities are endless.

Be warned, however- there is no indication whether a show has Spanish audio option until you have pressed play on the show and go into the menu.

Picture this- kids sit down for screen time and are so excited, they pick their show, and said show doesn’t have a Spanish option. Parents of preschoolers, you know how this ends, and it’s never with the kids quietly picking another show in Spanish (at least at my house).

So- I’ve rounded up a bunch of favorite Spanish Netflix on that do have audio in Spanish, and are a hit at Casa Pura Vida. You can use this page to show your kids their options and then go into Netflix to watch- avoiding any arguments!  You’re welcome!

Spanish Kid’s Shows On Netflix

Veggie Tales

Veggie Tales is a hilarious cartoon about vegetables who solve real-world problems. This is our #1 go-to show right now- the girls laugh a lot and the Spanish is a lot of fun. The Spanish is FAST- lots of talking the entire show.

Curious George

All the episodes are in Spanish on Netflix, and what I love about this show is that it’s calming and the characters speak slowly. So it’s a great intro to Spanish with a familiar character and not as much dialogue.

A favorite around here- I didn’t know it was in Spanish until I started doing more research for this article!

Pocoyó

Pocoyó is a fun one because it is originally a show from Spain that gained popularity in the US later. So when you watch it in Spanish, you are watching it in its original language- and the animal friends are adorable!

El Chavo del ocho

This is a show beloved by children and adults all throughout Latin America. It’s old, the characters speak super fast and in a ton of double entendres, which is hysterical if you are bilingual. It’s on Netflix and I couldn’t help but include it.

My Little Pony

I don’t actually like this show too much in English because I think the ponies order each other around in a mean way- but they don’t in Spanish!

Lego Friends

The Lego Friends are also a fun Spanish Netflix show- we haven’t watched it yet with our girls ages 3 and 5 as Common Sense Media doesn’t recommend it for under 5. I know lots of kids do watch it, however.

Coco

We love Coco and the Spanish version includes an all-star cast from Latin America so it’s like watching a completely different movie in Spanish. I’ll note- most all big Disney blockbusters from the past 15 years have Spanish audio, Coco is just one example. Cars, The Incredibles, Moana etc- all have Spanish audio.

    I am so excited to find this! We are adopting a 10 year old girl from Costa Rica. We don’t speak Spanish, but we are wanting to become a bilingual family. I have 3 bios – 8, 7, and 3 years old. I found some songs in Spanish that they love, so these shows will be great
