1972 a new TV programme started in Germany. It was Sesame Street.
Although I was way too old for children’s TV (no comments, please ;-)) I loved watching Sesame Street because it was shown in its original language and allowed me to improve my English.
A German version of Sesame Street – Sesamstraße – followed soon, which means you can do the same as I did.
If you are interested in the German language and have a few minutes spare every so often, check out the many clips on Youtube (just search for Sesamstraße) and enjoy a bit of fun German.
Update 2016, to save you searching I have made a playlist on YouTube: Learn German with Sesamstraße
Here is one clip to start you off – enjoy!
