On This Day | Dora The Explorer Premiered | Nickelodeon

On this day 18 YEARS AGO, we said Hola to Dora the Explorer and Boots the Monkey!

🎶 Do-do-do-do-Dora! 🎶

Co-created by Eric Weiner, Chris Gifford, and Valerie Walsh, Dora the Explorer ran for 172 episodes over eight seasons between 2000 and 2014 with. The series centers on an a seven-year-old American Latina who, along with her monkey, Boots, faced riddles and characters like a thieving fox named Swiper as she went on quests. She was notable for speaking in both English and Spanish at a time when that was not common on children's programming in the United States. The show spawned two spin-off series, Go, Diego, Go!, which follows Dpra's 8-year-old cousin Diego as he rescued animals around the world, and Dora and Friends: Into the City!, which follows the iconic character Dora living in a city, attending school and at the center of a new group of friends that works together to give back to the community--having both real-life and magical adventures along the way. The success of Dora spawned a number of toys and dolls, video games, DVDs, and a slew of merchandising, which industry estimates peg at more than $11 billion since 2000, as well as stage adaptations. A big screen live-action adaptation, starring Isabela Moner (Dora and Friends, 100 Things to Do Before High School, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Transformers: The Last Knight) is currently in production in Australia, and is currently slated for release on Friday, August 2, 2019.
