Dora the Explorer is an American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh Valdes and Eric Weiner. Dora the Explorer became a regular series in 2000. The series is co-produced by Nickelodeon Productions and Nickelodeon Animation Studio.
Dora the Explorer is one of the longest-running shows of Nick Jr. A live-action film adaptation is underway at Paramount Pictures and is scheduled for an August 2, 2019 release. On numerous occasions, television specials have been aired for the series in which the usual events of regular episodes are altered, threatened, or replaced. Usually said specials will present Dora with a bigger, more whimsical adventure than usual or with a magical task that must be fulfilled, or perhaps even offer a series of different adventures for Boots and Dora to travel through.
The show was developed out of Nickelodeon’s desire to “come up with the next big hit” similar to the network’s other hit preschool shows at the time Little Bear and Blue’s Clues. The creators sought to combine both shows format, with the narrative focus of Little Bear combined with the interactivity of Blue’s Clues. According to a Nickelodeon spokesman, “she was developed to be pan-Latina to represent the diversity of Latino cultures”. Initially the character was not planned to be Latina although after an executive at Nickelodeon attended a conference about the lack of Latino representation, the creators were asked if they could include such elements.
