Entertainment and some education for very young kids.

There is not really a certain thing that this series is about. It’s just a compilation of shorts appropriate for very young children. Season 1 is animated while Season 2 is not, and I would consider the series mediocre. However, I do like that each episode is less than 10 minutes long. I would recommend it to preschoolers and and under. The first season is just entertainment, but there is more educational value in the second season. There is no edgy or explicit content to worry about; just kid-friendly entertainment.

Is It Any Good?

Young viewers will get a kick out of these preschool shorts, but adults shouldn't expect much depth. Cartoonito Shorts are fillers that offer laughs and little bits of educational content here and there. But there's not much cohesion, like Disney Junior's similar Ready for Preschool shorts. Unless young viewers are really invested in the shows, watching them back to back makes for a random viewing experience.
