SFML or SDL are good jump off points for C++, gives you tools to create basic or advanced games and gets you to look up how to do things.
Python is pretty much pygame.

I assume by the fact you tagged it 'C++' you are interested in using C++. If so, I recommend running through the tutorial in my sig. It was written to introduce beginning C++ developers to more advanced concepts than simple commandline games, creating an over-engineered pong game with C++ and SFML. If you would rather use SDL, check out LazyFoo's tutorial series.
If you are open to other languages than C++, see the pinned thread at the top of this forum.
