This link has both Czech and Slovak.
I watched two episodes in Slovak to keep my SC streak. I was iffy about counting Peppa but as far as I can tell it's intended to keep your kid busy for 20-30 minutes (or more), and there are many Peppa videos on youtube that are several hours long.

Oh wow! This is great! The Greek show I've been watching is too difficult for my level, Peppa seems to be just right. I'm probably gonna watch 15-20 mins per day.

I've duplicated the link because someone looking for Slovak might scroll straight to S :)

Finally, some Mandarin that is on the edge of being Comprehensible Input!
Also super cool to be able to compare my relative listening comprehension levels across languages.
Could see those snorts getting more annoying over time though.

I might do this challenge soon in French. I'm already at a vaguely intermediate level, though. What I might do is see how much I can binge watch in a couple days or something and see how I feel at the end (whether it gets drastically easier to comprehend, whether I lose my mind, etc.).

As a beginner challenge, is the idea to do nothing else but watch Peppa Pig? I could probably be convinced to try such an activity just for funsies. :D I do eventually want to learn Swedish, and currently know absolutely none of it (except that the word for "absolutely" sounds like "absolOOT", which I know from watching The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo because Mikael says it a lot and it's hilarious). So that would be an opportunity to try this as a complete beginner.
