1 That Diego sure is a weird one, talking to animals the way he does. He needs to be locked up. And then there's the Christmas episode when Dora and Boots sneak out after her parents go to bed and walk to the North Pole. Great, it's always a good idea to subliminally teach kids they can leave the house and travel across the continent while their parents are sleeping! Also, there was actually an episode where Dora and company jump over a school of sharks. Coincidence? I think not! -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 THAT'S what I did wrong that time I got robbed at gunpoint that time in Taco Bell. I forgot to yell "Swipers! NO swiping! Swipers not swinging that crowbar at me! Swipers no..." BLAM! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 22, 2014, 11:25 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 And why the hell is Dora's ass never in school? What kind of parents let their kid roam around in wooded areas, mountaintops, rivers etc with a monkey? And I'm sorry, but this show promotes the falsification that if someone takes your stuff, yelling at them will get them to give it back, then they'll simply say "AWWW MAN!" and walk away. Wtf? Good luck with that. Also, Dora may be multilingual, but she is STILL as dumb as a brick. She stands in front of a pink waterfall and shouts, "I NEED YOUR HELP! CAN YOU HELP US FIND THE PINK WATERFALL?" *stares at audience for 5 minutes without blinking* Even Boots has this look on his face like he is thinking, "Why am I even hanging out with this fucktard?" Either Dora needs to get a fucking GPS or start going to class, because she can't find shit that is right behind her, is best friends with a monkey and a singing bookbag, and wears skimpy clothing when she's supposed to be like 7 years old. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 25, 2014, 12:24 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote

5 The reasons and comments on this one are both hilarious and true. I mean, everything i basically wanted to say most of u have already summed it up. Especially that this show teaches the "swiper no swiping" thing but if u really do that in real life u are more likely to get stabbed or shot than to watch a masked fox drop your bookbag and run away from you. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on December 3, 2012, 4:33 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I don't think I can get through a complete episode. Why do all the animals sound like annoying little kids? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on January 13, 2012, 10:52 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I wanted to like this show because I speak Spanish. I remember being really annoyed with the "Backpack" song, but the "swiper no swiping!" thing was what clenched it for me. The other stuff I could deal with. I actually found myself rooting for the fox, and was most disappointed in the one episode where he managed to steal something from Dorky the Exploder, and then she got it back. -- Submitted By: () on January 13, 2012, 3:07 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 That "swiper, no swiping" really hit it on the bone. Dora says it twices every time she catches the fox stealing her stuff. It doesn't really apply to real life when a mugger or a bank robber with a gun pointed to your face. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on March 11, 2011, 10:17 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I decided to see how many times Map says "I'm the Map" when he sings. He says it 15 times. Gee, you think that's enough? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 29, 2010, 11:40 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Dora The Explorer doesn't work at all. It says it teaches Spanish but it mostly hammers the same annoying songs into your head repeatedly and tried to hard to be interactive by making every simple task worth asking the audience to say where something is, while Dora waits for way too long. I could learn more in Spanish from a day of Grade 1 Spanish class than I could from a full season of this show. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 2:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 ROTFLOL. The Dirty Harry version of "Swiper, no swiping!" must have been hilarious! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 29, 2010, 3:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Well, perhaps "lampoon" isn't the best term to describe it. In short, I have fun with it. But, you asked for an example: My kids have a few of the Dora books. When I get to the map portion of the story, I sing a silly exaggerated version of the map song and then begin to repeat the locations on the map (in the same manner of The Map character) more times than necessary and on each round of repeating the locations, my voice becomes increasingly manic and shrill. My 6 year old just goes nuts with laughter when I do that. Also, I've been known to improvise my own words to the Backpack character song as well. Once I tried the Dirty Harry voice on the "Swiper no swiping" part of the books, but, not surprisingly, they didn't quite get that one. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 29, 2010, 8:16 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

15 The only redeeming quality of this show is that it teaches Spanish. I've found the rest of the show to be loud, annoying, and repetitive. The characters run around saying the same words and sentences OVER and OVER. Like the Map's song is literally him/it saying "I'm The Map!" 50 times. Lord knows why this show is so successful. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Bill) on November 20, 2009, 10:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 THIS SHOW SUCKS. For me, there IS no educational value here. If a burglar came into my house, I wouldn't say, "SWIPER, NO SWIPING!!" I would dial fracking 9-1-1!!! (and yes, I am aware that I am swearing in galactican) Besides, if I wanted to be educated with something a little to kidsy for me, I'd buy a JumpStart game. (well, one that ranges from 3rd-6th grade.) -- Submitted By: (Idontlikefails) on October 25, 2009, 11:07 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I'm sorry, this show is just horrible. Yes, we get it, you're the map, you're the map, you're the map, you're the map, you're the map, you're the map, YOU'RE THE FREAKING MAP ALREADY! I really believe this show insults the intelligence of younger kids. What is a young girl doing in the wilderness unsupervised anyway? Swiper is probably the worst villain of all time. If this show is truly "educational", it's basically telling kids that if a burglar breaks into your house, all you have to do is yell "SWIPER, NO SWIPING!", and the burglar will leave you alone. In the real world, not only will you be robbed, but the child will most likely be kidnapped as well. As to how this "show" hasn't been canceled yet, I have no idea. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on July 30, 2009, 12:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 This series wasn't bad, but the "Map" and "Backpack" songs were annoying as sin... Even when I was 7. -- Submitted By: (Johnny_T._Bird) on June 29, 2009, 2:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Cute and educational program for kids. The show hasn't boned yet. -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on April 24, 2009, 3:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
