Does anyone know of Japanese CHildren shows? I figure that watching these children shows could help with my listening comprehension. The only show i know is...Doreamon......

Sazae-san is a long-running animated children's series.

There are also shows like Pythagoras Switch and the shows that are on at around the same time, like Yuugata Quintet.

They're not the easiest to find outside of Japan, however. Unless I've been missing out (at which point I'd love to be clued in!).

Do note, however, that children's shows will likely not help your listening comprehension that much if you aren't already fairly advanced in Japanese. Even little children have mastered the grammar, so you'll find "difficult" relative/subordinate clauses, -tara and -ba, "long" sentences, slang, dialect forms, etc.
