Top 10 Stupidest Things About Dora the Explorer

The Top Ten
1 She Asks Where Something is When It's Right Behind Her

Don't even get me started. I grew up believing I could really eliminate Dora when I would be older. Literally. It's too bad it is impossible. I still hold grudges to this day. Dora should be banned from kids' shows too. One day, my brother accidentally pressed a button on the TV. The channel was Nick, and he started watching it. Well, of course, the program was Dora because Nickelodeon owes Chris Gifford a ton of money and is repaying him by running Dora on 24/7.

After a while, I heard a scream. It was my brother in his room, curled into a ball, whispering something in the corner of the room. He was repeatedly saying, "Dora, it's there, right behind you, Dora". Even if I watch it now, I might have a stroke.

2 She Says Swiper No Swiping

Okay, maybe Swiper stops when Dora and her loud mouth say "Swiper no swiping!" But how is that going to help in real life? In real life, robbers can shoot you before you say "Robber no robbing!" Here is how to get rid of a robber the WRONG WAY:
- Robber steals all of the person's money.
- Person: Robber no robbing!
- Robber pulls out a gun and shoots the person ten times in the face, killing him.

Here is how to get rid of a robber the RIGHT WAY:
- Robber steals a newborn baby.
- Person gets to the nearest phone and calls 911.
- The police come and arrest the robber.

Dora, you are actually telling the kids to say "murderer no murdering" right in front of a murderer, which can kill them.

3 Her Songs

The songs are unoriginal. All they do is repeat the same word over and over again! Time to hire some professionals.

Here's how I would have done the "Map song":
I'm the map, I'm the map,
If you don't know where to go, just call me!
I will show you where to go,
Now you won't get lost.

How I would have done the "Backpack song":
I keep your stuff inside,
If you want it, just call,
I'm a backpack!
Here you go!

This is twice as better than the original.

Backpack? More like Blackpack (Because Dora is racist)!

Her songs are so repetitive and should be replaced by pop or rock (or heavy metal) songs.

And don't even get me started on her dancing!

4 She Yells

She is probably deaf, she always yells and doesn't realize it. She screams "LOUDER!" every time the audience has to say a command. There was even an episode named "Louder!". I wonder how she can even function in life when she is apparently deafblind. Or she has a sensory processing issue. Maybe she just does it on purpose to annoy people.

Oh God, she shouts, not speaks. She never shuts up! She says where so and so is when it's right in front of her!

It's not good because what if people are trying to sleep but they can't because of Dora yelling every five seconds.

5 Everything Has a Face

It's part of any cartoon. Fleischer's cartoons often use faces in inanimate objects (such as a train or a foot!) and most of Disney's cartoons use faces the same way as Fleischer's. They are occasionally used in movies like Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh (dream scene), and Beauty and the Beast.

But in Dora, this one doesn't even use it correctly and makes them dumb.

Some kids might find it creepy that everything in the TV show has a face. I would think they put faces on everything so when they talk, their mouth is opening and not just invisible. But, really, you could have done better, Dora.

6 "Do You See The..."

Do you see the lake? It's right in front of YOU! Dora is blind. If she screams for help, I'm gonna yell to Boots, LET HER DIE!

Do you see the... Well, duh! Obviously, someone older than 5 can see the lake, tree, flower.

Hey, are you under the age of 5? No, you are not, so obviously you can see it.

7 Her Belly Sticks Out

She chases the ice cream truck while screaming 'ice cream' in a salute to the junk food peddlers sponsoring this show. 'Can you find the ice cream truck?' May as well ask to become a ball of lard! Ditto goes for every other junk food type you can think of. Great promotion of healthy eating for small kids... not!

Here's something:

Once upon a time, there was an unexplorer named Dora who ate way too much. She was fatter than the sun and exploded. All that's left is her belly button on the ground. The End.

Didn't her parents put her on a diet? You know, before she had the stupid idea of becoming an explorer?

8 Her Parents Let Her Out the House with No Supervision of an Adult

Dora's parents should be sued for child neglect. She goes on adventures through forests, and her parents don't even care! This teaches kids that they can do random things without parental supervision. What if Dora got run over by a truck? What if she fell in quicksand? Her parents probably wouldn't even notice. Dora is just so terrible and stupid.

Dora's parents are bad parents. They can't just let Dora explore alone. What if she gets kidnapped? I hope when Dora gets home, her mother disciplines her.

9 She Always Eats with Her Mouth Open

When I was really little, I used to have good manners. That was, until Dora, of course. Since I liked Dora as a kid, I watched it a lot. And Dora always ate with her mouth open, so I began eating with my mouth open. Unlucky for me, it became an instinct. Now, I find it hard to keep my mouth closed. Thanks for turning me into a rude slob, you revolting douche.

Ugh, Dora is a pig! She eats with her mouth open. She kind of looks like one, and she's a fatty. (Nothing wrong with fat people, though).

Dora eats like a pig in mud. Even a pig can eat better than her. I bet her mom abuses her if she eats like that. She probably spits out food.

10 It is Still on the Air

It got cancelled a year ago, but they came back with Dora in the City.

It got cancelled last January, but it came back with Dora in the City.

Oh, check your Nick Jr. guide, and it STILL AIRS. It's stupid. This, Go Diego Go, and Into the City should be gone. Good news, Dora and Friends: Into the City got cancelled in January 2018.

The Contenders
11 Boots

Boots is as stupid as Dora. In one episode, he complained that his boot had a hole in it and started whining about it. Boots should get a life.

Oh, Boots is so whiny. Whoever commented that once you find a way into the TV, her future will be in heaven is wrong! She and Boots will not have a good end.

Boots is a really unoriginal name for a monkey that wears boots. They could have spent some more time coming up with a better name.

12 The Stupid Insect Band

Well, they aren't that bad, but I'm pretty sure Jabba the Hutt's chorus band is better than the insect band.

Useless crap that we don't need in the show! They almost appear in every episode. PS: Worse than those singing chipmunks from Sheriff Callie.

I'd easily kill them with a few TIE Fighter shots! They can't survive that!

13 Always Ask the Part You Like the Most and Agrees

I don't like the show, yes it's a show for toddlers, but Dora is an exception, it sucks, it's not even educational. But I think this reason shouldn't be on the list because this is for toddlers only, and they don't know any better. If this part were for older kids, yeah, it would be stupid, but it's not, because toddlers aren't dirty like us.

Dora: What was your favorite part of the trip?
Me: When Pikachu electrocuted you to death.
Dora: I liked that too!
Pikachu: Pika Pika! (Electrocutes Dora to death)
Dora: (Dies)
People who hate Dora and who love Pikachu: Yay!

14 She is a 5 Year Old Girl Who Travels the World with a Monkey

Ever heard of the monkey who ripped that lady's face off? That should've happened to Dora long ago, considering what she and Boots do sometimes. Someone should make that a creepypasta. I'd read it.

Let me correct the user who said she was four years old. I am also correcting that it says she's five in the title. Dora is actually seven years old. If you don't believe me, look at facts about her character.

That's crazy. Kids would be socializing with animals instead of people. Their parents would be like, "What the hell is wrong with you!?"

15 She Always Asks for Help

You know, if you answer no to Dora, then you're dead.
Dora: Do you want to help me find the golden statue with me?
Me: No, I don't feel like it, you racist fat.
Dora: What did you say!
Me: No.
Dora: Oh yeah. (jumps out of the TV and grabs a gun and shoots me a 1000 times).

She's too lazy to even do anything by herself!

She asks the fat chicken for help I mean how can a chicken help you

16 She is an Awful Example for Kids

I can't believe I watched this as a kid! It made me eat like a little slob until I was 6! Because she eats with her mouth open, I run outside at the backstreet without permission! And I do stuff like her!

A very bad example. She says a stupid phrase to get a thief away from her, goes exploring without permission, and exposes her midriff all the time. Need I say more?

Why is she even traveling into a jungle without her parents? Because her parents don't give a fudge about Dora.

17 Every Single Character Except for Swiper and the Grumpy Old Troll are Brain Dead Morons

You know what, I think I like the villains in this show! They are pretty likeable.

18 She's a Horrible Role Model

Absolutely a horrible role model. She goes on stupid adventures without asking permission. The list goes on. By the way, Dora, you might get your parents arrested.

She gets kids to believe that the TV can actually hear them, so it's a horrible example for kids.

19 She Always Speaks Spanish

Little kids don't know what the English translation is because Nickelodeon didn't put the English translation on the screen! This is a Nick Junior show, so Nickelodeon should put English subtitles on the scene so little kids know what Dora is saying.

I don't actually take Spanish, but apparently, according to some of the comments, half of what she's "teaching" aren't even actual Spanish words.

Why do three and four-year-olds need to know Spanish when they don't even know how to read and write their own names?

20 She Can't Find Things When It's Like 1 Inch Away from Her

All those zeroes are covering up the advertisement. Seriously, this is so true. I bet she can't find something that is one millimeter in front of her.

Exactly. She wouldn't even notice a spider crawling up her arm if her life depended on it. She needs some serious help.

21 Her Brother is Diego

Umm... Actually, sir, Diego is actually Dora's cousin, but that doesn't help the fact that Diego is just as annoying as his female counterpart (Well, at least he doesn't look like he got selected for the pink team on The Biggest Loser).

Literally, the only good thing about Diego is that he likes animals. But for being Dora's cousin, I've got to scratch a point off that.

Her cousin is Diego, and he has his own show. He is really dumb and he screams like Dora. I'd still rather watch Go Diego Go! than Dora the Explorer.

22 When You Try to Say What Your Favorite Part of the Adventure Was, It Gets Interrupted

I never even had a favorite part, ever...

23 She Makes Parents Look Stupid

She doesn't even asks her parents to go out of the house!

24 Stupid Songs

Both of her songs are worse than Baby by Justin Bieber!

25 Her Head is Twice the Size as Her Body

We probably shouldn't make fun of her for this, because that's rude, right? Even if she does eat more than she should, we still shouldn't judge. It may not be her fault.

How the heck does she wear that one pink t-shirt if her head is bigger than a watermelon?

It is shaped like a football, lemon, lime, jellybean, and maybe Stuart's from Family Guy.
