OK, I know I've ranted on Dora the Explorer before but I must go at it again. Since the last time, I've surpassed the ten thousand hour mark in forced watching of the program.
For instance, what if the producers of the show were to mix Dora with that old favorite, The Wizard of Oz?
I can imagine Dora, swept away by some strong wind. Maybe, with some luck, she'll lose that stupid backpack along the way. She would, of course, end up at the far end of the yellow brick road with her dog, or in this case, monkey: Boots.
Of course, Dora eventually finds the lost city but must make her request directly to the wizard - cue Swiper sound effects.
"Too late," He says as he throws the backpack into the trees, giving Map a concussion and a nasty series of contusions in the process. "You'll never find it now!"
Dora has no choice but to run directly into another adventure to find her backpack again. Sorry Dora, No "we did it" dance for you, this time.
