Top Ten Weirdest and Creepiest Things About Dora the Explorer

The Top Ten
1 Everything has a face

The backgrounds in Mario 3 have eyes too, but in Mario, it's actually cute. Can't say the same thing for Dora...

I would scream and hide under the sheets of my bed if everything had a face.

Hi, I'm a mountain and I have a face! - Mountain on having a face.

2 Dora can't see anything even if it is right in front of her

Dora: Where is Swiper?
Me: There! Behind you!
Dora: Where?
Me: He is right behind you!
Dora: Is he behind me?
Me: Yes!

Dora: Where is the bridge? Left or right?
Me: Left
Dora: Is it on the right?
Me: It's on the left, you blind 1 IQ 7-year-old girl.
Dora: Left, you are right!
Me: I said left!

In the episode "Choo Choo":
Dora: Do you see Swiper?
Me: Yes, in the back of Azul.
Dora: Where?
Me: I told you already.
Boots: He's going to swipe the whistle.

"Vamos a Pintar":
Dora: Where is Swiper?
Boots: I saw him.
Dora: I don't see him.
Me: Dora, you idiot. He was in front of you.

3 Swiper goes away whenever Dora tells him to

Dora: Swiper no swiping!
Me: Like that's going to work.
Dora: Swiper no swiping!
Boots: Uh Dora, that won't work!
Me: You're right, Boots!
Dora: Swiper no swiping!
Swiper: Oh man! Runs like a coward.
Me: How is that possible?

Swiper is the only good character, but he is cowardly. He needs to build up more courage and someday lecture Dora about his name being Swiper and that he swipes stuff. There was actually a comic strip about that.

If Swiper got better. If Dora said "Swiper, No Swiping," Swiper would just take their belongings because that's not how you make a thief go away.

4 Dora's parents are bad parents

Her parents don't even have a problem with Dora exploring. How old are these parents?

Imagine if Dora went to a river and ended up drowning, her parents would barely care about it.

5 She stops and waits for the viewer's answer, like she knows you're there

This scared me when I was young. Honestly. They just wait and stare at you with blank, lifeless faces for a few seconds and then carry on with what they were doing.

To be fair, this is to engage the target audience - little toddlers or kindergartners. Many shows use it.

When she asks a question, everything stops. It's like the world is in shock because she doesn't know something so obvious.

6 It's naturally disturbing
7 She almost dies in most episodes
8 Breaking the fourth wall

She needs to leave the fourth wall alone.

9 The map can talk

A map that changes every single episode. So logical! What if Dora had a tablet with a map system? It might be better, in my opinion. Explorers possibly don't use paper maps anymore, I think.

10 She is constantly being stalked by Swiper
The Contenders
11 She goes exploring without parents permission
12 She doesn’t sleep
13 What is your favorite part of the trip?
14 She ate ice cream and threw away the cone without eating the cone
15 She goes out on her own without a responsible adult
16 Her IQ
17 She has a big head
18 She interrupts at what's your favorite part

Dora: What's your favorite part?
Me: When you're par-
Dora: I liked that part too.
Me: What the hell!

19 It's the same plot for each episode
20 Dora's singing voice

Her flute playing too. She didn't even play it! All she said was "dink dink the dink dink!"

I would send Ursula to steal Dora's singing voice!

21 She is crazy
22 She can only count to 8 despite being 7 and able to speak English and Spanish
23 Boots is a walking talking monkey that wears boots
24 She’s friends with a monkey
25 Her dancing
