** The Spanish-language version of ''Dora'', the book releases at least, plays this exactly as you would expect. It has gratuitous English.

Dora, a cute 7-year-old explorer girl, and her monkey friend, Boots, teach young viewers, in both English and Spanish, how to observe situations and solve problems.

* TakeYourTime: In "Sticky Tape", their friend Benny is being swept away in a hot air balloon, headed straight for Crocodile Lake! Oh no! They need to fix the hole in his balloon before the balloon dips so low that the crocs eat him! But c'mon, it's not like they need to hurry. They stroll along at their usual beat (to the walking song they always use), even pause to dance out the musical portions. It's only once they get very close to Crocodile Lake that they start sprinting toward their doomed friend. It's like they manufacture their own cliffhanger moments. In another episode, "We All Scream For Ice Cream", Dora and Boots really want ice cream, but they need to go to Coney Island to get it. But even though they REALLY want it badly, they have no need to hurry. They just take their time and walk slowly.

** As of 2013, '''''the click/beep mouse arrow seems to have been abandoned as well.''''' The things that the show wants kids to pay attention to simply light up, with an accompanying musical chime, but the mouse arrow is gone. The only time the arrow shows up is when it clicks on Dora near the end, though the arrow has showed up a few times in "Dora's Moonlight Adventure".

* EatTheCamera: When Map is finished explaining the route for the day and saying the destination the last time, he jumps at the camera so his open mouth fills the screen. This later dissolves to Dora.



* FramingDevice: Some of the episodes ("What Happens Next?", "Dora's First Trip", the "Super Babies" trilogy, "Catch The Babies", "Dora's Christmas Carol Adventure"); are framed by Dora telling the events of it (Santa tells the last of these). The interaction even takes place in the story.



* GratuitousSpanish:

to:

* GratuitousSpanish:GratuitousSpanish: Generally Spanish is the main theme of the show, and the goal is to teach it to the viewer.



* LaterInstallmentWeirdness:
** Season 3 introduces the "Star Catching" format, which is later abandoned after Season 4. Season 4 also abandons the "Three Picture Pop Up" sequence and carried the destination recap over to Map.
** From Season 5, in some episodes, Backpack is never asked.



* ThankingTheViewer: Every episode ends this way.



* TransformationSequence: Dora experiences this in every special episode.



* WalkIntoCameraObstruction: When Map is finished explaining the route for the day and saying the destination the last time, he jumps at the camera so his open mouth fills the screen. This later dissolves to Dora.

Spinoff series include ''WesternAnimation/GoDiegoGo'' and '' WesternAnimation/DorasExplorerGirls''.



* BagOfHolding: Dora's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin appropriately named]] Backpack was shown in the last Dora/Diego crossover special to have ''bear milk'' inside it. Cue blatant [[MemeticMutation lolwut]] reaction from parents.
** "Anything that you might need, I've got inside for you." She says it in her song, people.
