After discovering it was on Netflix Watch Instantly, I decided to try watching it last night to see how far I could make it into an episode. I made it only 8 minutes. It was the most repetitive mind-numbing nonsense I've ever seen. What's with Dora talking to the viewer and asking us to say things and all that? And you can stop Swiper just by saying "Swiper no swiping"? What the hell? Then the introduction to the map which was a song that was basically just him singing "I'm a map!" over and over. This is seriously the dumbest and most pointless show EVER. Horrible Cartoon.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

It was the most repetitive mind-numbing nonsense I've ever seen.
Children appreciate repetitive mind-numbing nonsense.

Quote
What's with Dora talking to the viewer and asking us to say things and all that?
That is repetition; it is intended to help the children learn basic Spanish phrases.

Quote
And you can stop Swiper just by saying "Swiper no swiping"?
What did you expect them to do, shoot him? It's a G-rated show intended for 3-year-olds; saying "Swiper no swiping" is the most violent it can be.

Quote

Children find this amusing.

You probably expected a cartoon in the same degree as "Family Guy", right? Well it's common knowledge that it's a kids show to help them learn a li'l bit of Spanish. For God's sake man.

It's pretty hard to watch, but there are some worse children's shows I have watched. I prefer Jennifer watching Canadian kids shows. Not much use in watching a show that teaches Spanish when I'd prefer her to learn French.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Guys, Dora the Explorer is literally a show for 2-3 year olds. It's like if someone made a thread on here complaining about wearing diapers or drinking out of sippy cups or going to daycare.

Or like if somebody made a thread dedicated entirely to their opinions on another children's show, say something like "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" or some such thing.

TBF, they're completely different shows. MLP: FiM is one of the few kids' cartoons that doesn't treat the audience like retards (also, the target audience is like 7-12)
