Entertainment programs, animations, music and cartoons prepared for children are children's programs that they watch with interest on television. If we think that children learn many concrete or abstract concepts especially through cartoons, it can be said that carefully prepared cartoons play an important role in children's cognitive development. Pre-school period has a great importance for the child to have positive attitudes and behaviors related to environment and as a basis for their future life. Considering that children identify with the cartoon characters and take the positive and negative characters in the cartoon program as a model, it is thought that the cartoons constructed on the concept of environment will be beneficial in terms of environmental education. In the field literature, there is no study in which a cartoon based on this concept is analyzed in the context of environmental education. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the ‘’Water Ambassadors’’ cartoon in terms of environmental problems and sustainability. In this study, the content analysis of qualitative research methods was used. In the cartoon, it has been determined that the consciousness of protecting the environment in general is trying to gain.
