Select PBS Kids Programs Now Available in Spanish via Amazon Channel

Spanish-language versions of a variety of PBS Kids shows, including Caillou and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, are now streaming on the PBS Kids Amazon Prime Video channel.

A total of 30 episodes of PBS Kids programming is now available as En Español content. Episodes of the kids’ properties Dinosaur Train, Scigirls and Cyberchase are also now accessible on the channel.

Caillou tells the story of the 4-year-old who finds wonderment in everyday adventures with his parents and friends. Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood—which builds on the pioneering PBS series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood—tells stories about the life of the eponymous preschooler, using music to follow a social-emotional curriculum.

Dinosaur Train, meanwhile, aims to spark preschoolers’ interest in science, natural history and paleontology. Scigirls similarly focuses on science, though in this property a group of middle school girls are the ones exploring the wonders of the STEM curriculum. Cyberchase focuses on math as three kids—Inez, Jackie and Matt—are summoned into cyberspace to foil a hacking villain.

Andrea Downing, co-president of PBS Distribution, said, “We’re excited to expand our PBS Kids channel offering to include a selection of episodes presented in Spanish. Our aim is to provide educational and entertaining programming for all kids, and this expansion helps further that mission.”
