What is Dora exploring?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 20th 2006 7:36PM

DoraI've never seen an episode of Nickelodeon's Dora The Explorer. My Nickelodeon viewing is limited to The Fairly Odd Parents and maybe SpongeBob SquarePants once in a while. What is the show about, exactly? Is it one of those shows that's animated but is really for adults more than the younger set? Does Dora work for the vice squad or maybe an escort service?

The reason I ask is because of this, the Dora The Explorer Aquapet, from Wild Planet Toys. Oh, it's wild alright, if wild means offensive. And please note that it says that the toy is "fun for all" and "interacts with you." Frankly, it looks like something that a woman would buy at Spencer's Gifts, or, as one of the reviewers says on the Amazon page, "maybe as a prank for a bachelorette party." Did the company realize what they had when the product was done, or even at the drawing board stage?

There could be a whole underground market for stuff like this, dirty toys based on seemingly innocent cartoon characters. We could have the Road Runner and Wild E. Coyote doing nasty things to each other. I mean, after all, most cartoon characters don't even wear pants.

It's a Limited Edition, so act now before supplies run out!

I've got three little boys and they have this same type of toy with aquapets in them that resemble fish. The toy does electronic tricks and it's the latest in a series of things the boys collect like tomagotchi...It never occurred to me that they were "dirty" and with three boys you'd think I'd be phallic-minded! Just don't see any sexual connotation with this toy.

There is something prurient about that toy... but izzit an intentional design or just an unfortunate accident?

Whatever, it will make the manufacturers a TON of wampum.
