I have been doing Duo Lingo for about 8 weeks now and completed Lesson 75 in Getting Started with Spanish today.  I am just beginning to catch on a bit.  I would love some simple videos in Spanish for a very beginning language learner.  Something slow and gentle.  Right now I don't care if it is a kids show or for adults.
 

I am getting better at reading Spanish but my conversational listening skills are lagging.

I'm sure there's plenty of YouTube options but Salsa & Destinos are "curriculum" that start from the very beginning level completely in Spanish

 

Salsa is great for the preschool audience with puppets

Destinos is a relatively engaging telenovela for adults

HBO and Disney also broadcasts all their shows with a Spanish audio programming if you are able to switch it on your TV (cable/dish). When my kids were younger, I actually learned quite a bit by watching Dora la Exploradora with them in Spanish.

 

Good luck!

On youtube are 'learn spanish with subtitles' animations, and those have spanish subtitles in karaoke style so you can see what you hear.
