In a fun blend of education, colorful animation and talking cartoon animals, HBO Family and HBO Latino bring their audiences together with "El Perro y el Gato." Whether you're an English speaker learning Spanish or a Spanish speaker learning English, you'll find this show satisfactory and smart.
On each DVD of the show, you'll find 25 minutes of content, separated into four 6-minute episodes centering around a set of vocabulary words. Taking us through a pastel-animated world is El Perro (voiced by Moises Palacios), an energetic young dog, and his roommate El Gato (voiced by Miguel Guerrero
), a laid-back, purple feline with the voice almost as smooth as Barry White
's. The two animals talk mostly to each other, (El Perro does most of the talking), and as they do, each is sure to make constant repetitions of English words and their Spanish counterparts, and vice versa.
