Another tool for increasing exposure to Cantonese is Cantonese Stories. There are many to be found on YouTube, and is often a good compromise for those who have a limited screentime policy. Some come with animation (though less than cartoons) and some are almost entirely audio, and can be enjoyed with the visual.
Stories with animation
故事屋Story House （Idioms, Legends, Fables)
Stories with Static Images or Minimal Animation
These stories also work as audio stories if you choose not to show the videos.

Has a variety of stories ranging from classic fairy tales to to children’s stories to biographies of famous people.
