    Thank you for posting the Chinese cartoons. I am looking for cartoons that has been translated to Mandarin such as Handy Manny, Go Diego Go, Winnie the Pooh, etc. Do you know where I can find them?

    Hi Elise,

    Per your request, I did an internet search and found some free cartoons in mandarin chinese. I posted them onto this webpage…

    If you copy and paste the chinese titles (such as Dora 朵拉, Handy Manny 萬能阿曼) , you may be able to find online booksellars who sell the DVDs that you can purchase (better quality viewing).

    One such website I came across is AsianParent.com out from Northern California:

    Best to you!
