Dora the Explorer (Nickelodeon)




Dora the Explorer
Winner 2003 | Viacom International, Inc., produced in association with Mango Network, Nickelodeon, and MTV

This animated series explores the world of Dora, a 7-year-old Latina, her friends, family, and companions. Produced for pre-schoolers, Dora uses computer-style interactivity and play-along techniques to amuse, entertain, and, most importantly, instruct its audience of young viewers. Math, music, and physical coordination are among topics presented in an age-appropriate manner. As part of the series mission, Dora teaches Spanish words and phrases, making it one of the few children’s television programs to introduce language skills and multi-lingual education at such an early developmental stage. Produced in association with Mango Networks, Nickelodeon, and MTV Networks, Dora the Explorer was created by executive producer Chris Grifford, producer-writer Valerie Walsh, and executive story editor Eric Weiner. Kathleen Herles provides the voice for Dora and Harrison Chad does Boots, her companion. For outstanding efforts in making learning a pleasurable experience for pre-schoolers, a Peabody Award goes to Dora the Explorer.
