Watch Chinese cartoons Sponge Bob & Dora the Explorer (for kids learning Mandarin)

Just wanted to share a couple links that I came across the other day for watching Chinese language versions of kids cartoons.  It looks like you can watch quite a few episodes free via cntv.

Sponge Bob Square Pants

Also known in Chinese as 海绵宝宝 hǎi mián bǎobǎo. Click here to watch an episode titled 破坏狂表弟 pò huài kuáng biǎo dì, which I will really need some help translating....  After watching you can click thumbnails below for more episodes.

Dora the Explorer

Also known in Chinese as 爱探险的朵拉 ài tànxiǎn de Duǒlā. A nice translation: Loves to Explore Dora. I think even in the US Dora works in some Mandarin in her episodes. Click here to watch episode 33 (and use thumbnails for more)

Thanks guys! It's now working in Firefox, couldn't get it to run in IE and Chrome though :)

It's working in the US too.  No problem for me.  Thanks for sharing.

Hey Tobias - Sorry you're having problems. I don't know if it's a China IP thing though as I've viewed from multiple locations.  If it's still not working, you can also try these Youku video searches. Looks like there are some episodes & some clips:

search 破坏狂表弟 on youku (Sponge Bob)

search 爱探险的朵拉 on youku (Dora)

Does it work for anyone who's not currently in China? I guess it's only available for Chinese IPs :-(
