Trivia / Dora the Explorer

  • Adored by the Network: Oh yes. Second in line from Spongebob Squarepants.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Backpack is voiced by a young man in Germany and Hungary.
    • The Map is voiced by what sounds like a woman in one of the Eastern European dubs.
  • The Other Darrin: Back when Diego first debuted in Dora, he had one voice actor. Then Diego got his own show, and a new voice actor. Diego's voice was in limbo for a while; Dora would switch off between the Diego actor and the original actor for a time (the only rationale apparently being that the original actor would voice the normal Dora episodes that featured Diego as a guest character, and the new actor would voice the episodes that were specifically crossovers with Go, Diego, Go!). Later on, the vast majority of the cast was wholly replaced.
    • And now, after Caitlin's whole Screwed by the Network deal, Dora has another new voice actress as of Swiper's Favorite Things. The new voice is extremely noticeable.
  • Talking to Himself: Marc Weiner voices Swiper and the Map.
  • The Wiki Rule: Dora Wki
  • What Could Have Been: In the unused pilot, Boot uses the Grumpy Old Troll's design. In concept art he looks like a fuzzy yellow monkey.
    • Dora was originally going to be a forest animal, but after a Nickelodeon executive said that there were no positive Latino role models on TV for kids, she was made into a human girl.
