Nickelodeon Star Dora the Explorer To Visit The NASDAQ MarketSite in New York's Times Square On 7/29; Fátima Ptacek To Ring Closing Bell

Viacom Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAB, VIA), the parent company of the Nickelodeon brand, and the American multinational financial services corporation The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. have announced the exciting news in the following press release, from GlobeNewswire, that, to celebrate Nickelodeon USA starting to premiere and show Nickelodeon Preschool's brand-new animated educational preschool series "Dora and Friends: Into the City!" from Monday 18th August 2014, Viacom Inc. & Nickelodeon's iconic Dora Marquez character from Nick's all-new preschool series "Dora and Friends" will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square on Tuesday 29th July 2014! Additionally, in honor of the occasion, 13-year old Nickelodeon Voice Actor Fátima Ptacek, the voice of Nickelodeon's iconic Latina heroine Dora in "Dora and Friends" and "Dora the Explorer", will ring the Closing Bell at a ceremony at the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York's famous Times Square!

"Dora and Friends: Into the City!" (20 episodes) is a brand-new animated preschool series featuring the iconic character Dora The Explorer in all-new adventures, with new friends and a new interactive curriculum. The series is set in a fictional, pan-Latino city called Playa Verde, where Dora is 10 years old, in school and at the center of a peer group that works together to give back to the community — having both real-life and magical adventures along the way. As always, Dora is an adventurer, a good friend and problem-solver. "Dora and Friends" helps teach Spanish and introduces new educational areas to the curriculum, including social-emotional skills like community service and peer relationships.

In each episode, Dora and her friends go on adventures, whether it's rescuing a lost stuffed monkey for a little boy in the hospital or returning a ring to an ancient Mayan Princess.

Dora uses the help of a Map App on her smartphone and a magical charm bracelet to navigate the city and overcome obstacles along the way. In this new series, Dora continues to show she is a good friend, leader, and problem-solver with a group of new friends – Kate, Naiya, Emma, Alana and Pablo -- who share her passion for learning and exploring.

"Dora and Friends" is created by Chris Gifford and Valerie Walsh Valdes ("Dora the Explorer").
