Product Description

Meet El Perro y El Gato. In their debut show, they introduce pre-schoolers as well as older brothers and sisters to their non-stop world. With lots of vibrant colors and plenty of attitude, these two best friends – a dynamic dog and a laid back cat – create wonderful adventures from the beach to the zoo to the first day of school. And everything is in English and in Spanish. El Perro y El Gato is a totally fun way to learn both languages!

An animated HBO show for preschoolers, El Perro y El Gato follows two good friends, an energetic dog and a laid-back cat, through their daily lives as they experience things like getting dressed, going to school, playing at the beach, and visiting a farm. While El Perro (the dog) is excited and enthusiastic about absolutely everything, the only thing that gets El Gato (the cat) moving is the promise of food, but somehow the two friends get along just fine. The characters repeat each phrase in English and Spanish, and key vocabulary words appear onscreen in both languages. The episodes, each roughly four minutes long, cover five related concepts, and the brightly colored characters, simple animation, and pacing are all designed for maximum toddler appeal. (Ages 2 to 5) --Tami Horiuchi

I love El Perro y El Gato! Can't get enough...and my baby (8 months old) adores the show. We watch it daily. El Perro is the fun-loving, know-it-all, always dragging Gato along on adventures. And El Gato is the lazy, overweight, food-loving, star of the show. Together they make a really great and entertaining show. I'm not fluent in Spanish, but that doesn't matter. It's a great little cartoon, funny, and I've picked up a few Spanish words here and there. (Like vete means 'go away' lol.)

I own all 4 videos but this one just isn't as good as the others. If I had to buy them all over again, I probably would skip buying this one. 5 seasons of El Perro y El Gato have aired on HBO. Season 5 hasn't been released on video yet. Each season consists of 4-5 mini episodes totally about 25 minutes of show. But this one doesn't follow that same format. The episodes on this video are much shorter, less funny, and just not the same. I believe this is season 1 and I think the show just wasn't as developed when this aired. My little boy still enjoys it just the same, but it's not as entertaining for adults.

Be sure to get all the others though!

5.0 out of 5 stars very cute, very funny and very good August 23, 2011
By Ruth K.
This is such a well-done series -- there is no question that it will become a favorite, both with kids and their respective adults! In terms of language, I love that it is bilingual, in a very seamless and natural way, and that the language is fun and useful. Even better, the characters are very funny, in a way that adults will definitely enjoy, too. I have given this DVD as a gift and it became my friends' son's favorite video! This would be a great addition to any elementary Spanish program, too (I know -- I used to teach K-5 Spanish).

5.0 out of 5 stars Bilingual success! January 15, 2014

Fantastic sweet storylines appeals to the younger crowd and teaches Spanish/English .. The friendship bwn Cat and Dog is charming, and love how they change roles: if cat asks in English, El Perro answers In Spanish -- and vice versa. Simple enough story with enough adventure that reinforce vocabulary. -- all good.
