We have been watching Masha and The Bear for a long time.  Click here for my first blog post about this super cute animated series.

We’ve been watching it in Russian and on Youtube for years now.

Earlier this month, Masha and The Bear joined Netflix… IN ENGLISH!

Now, M had been watching Masha in English for awhile now since they started showing the English versions on Youtube.  But when we discovered that Masha was joining Netflix, it’s like we’ve fallen in love with the series all over again!

There are nine episodes on Netflix.  Each episode contains 3 different stories, all of which we have seen in Russian and loved.

While we always were able to pull the storyline from each show based on what we were seeing, it’s great to actually understand the dialogue now that it’s in English.  So super cute!While M used to sing the songs from the show in Russian, M thinks it’s great that she can finally sing along and understand the lyrics in English.I can’t wait for them to release more episodes!  We’ve seriously been watching it every day!

Masha and the Bear is a Russian cartoon about a little girl and her bear, obviously. 

It’s all in Russian, so I’m not 100% sure what going on.  From the looks of it, it’s a little girl named Masha that lives in the forest and has a bunch of animal friends…

It’s super cute and the stories are super entertaining.  Masha is a bit mischevious and that seem to get her into trouble at times..

This picture is from M’s favorite episode:


How did we find this?

Well.. M did.

I’ve mentioned before that M’s current obsession is Youtube.  She knows how to navigate around the site and will usually click on video thumbnails that seem to spark her interest.  This particular show’s thumbnail sparked her interest and she loves to watch it.

For the longest time she was calling it “rice” because of what little Masha is eating in the video.  When it wasn’t on and she would ask for it, would couldn’t figure out what “rice” was.. until she found it herself and exclaimed, “rice!”

When Hubby and I used Google Translator to figure out what this show was about, we learned that it was called Masha and the bear..

So when she asked for “rice” we told her what it was actually called. 

Now, she calls it “Masha beah.”

I actually like this cartoon.  It’s cute and playful.  I don’t speak Russian, but I pick up the storyline easily. 

I do recommend this for kids because it’s too darn cute! 

Just do a search for “Masha and the bear” on Youtube and you’ll find so many more episodes.
