Dora the Explorer is a series for preschool-age children that is broadcast on Nickelodeon in the United States. A pilot episode for this series aired in 1999 and as a regular series in 2000.
It tells the story of Dora, a young girl (voiced by a young Latina named Kathleen Herles) and her sidekick Boots, a talking monkey (voiced by Harrison Chad), who venture forth on various simple but important quests, some of which are complicated by a villainous fox named Swiper who usually attempts, mostly in vain, to claim whatever the two are in possession at the time (when Swiper appears, Dora's catch phrase is "Swiper no swiping!!!"). Some more recently produced episodes have introduced Dora's cousin Diego (Felipe Dieppa), an intrepid young animal rescue worker, as a partner in the adventures. He has proved popular enough that Nickelodeon introduced a separate Diego series entitled Go, Diego, Go! in 2005. The episodes are used to demonstrate and practice skills such as decision-making, following directions, math skills, music, physical coordination, and Anglo-Spanish bilingualism. The show features a number of anthropomorphic props, notably Dora's backpack and map, as well as railroad trains and automobiles with speaking roles.
Dora the Explorer is currently still being produced. Dora and her companions are the subject of numerous books and other merchandise for children. The show is generally in English, although it is peppered with simple Spanish phrases in an effort to give young viewers a rather limited multicultural experience.
Foreign language versions of Dora the Explorer
As with most animated series made in the US, Dora the Explorer has been dubbed into many languages all over the world. All the dubbed versions of DtE currently are not on any American DVD. If the series gets popular enough, however, it's possible that the languages will come to DVD as a Special Edition set. The simplicity and repetitious nature of the episodes make this series especially well-suited for learning a foreign language.
In the Spanish language version, Dora la Exploradora, broadcast on cable channel Telemundo, Dora and Boots are speaking Spanish and other protagonists speaking and answering in English. Some Spanish episodes are available to US customers on VHS, and some DVD's have a Spanish track (including Dora's Egg Hunt).
In the French language version, Dora l'exploratrice, broadcast on the private French TV channel TF1, the bilingualism is Anglo-French, with Dora and Boots speaking French and other protagonists speaking and answering in English. Some French episodes are available to US customers on VHS from http://www.amazon.ca.
In the Japanese language version, broadcast on Nick Japan, the bilingualism is Anglo-Japanese, with Dora and Boots speaking Japanese and other protagonists speaking and answering in English.
In the German Version, broadcast on the recently restarted German branch of Nickelodeon, the bilingualism is Anglo-German, analogously to the French and Japanese Version.
In the Irish language version, broadcast on the Irish Language station TG4, the bilingualism is Irish-Spanish, with Dora and Boots speaking in Irish and some other characters speaking Spanish as in the original
Dora the Explorer merchandise
