Leave the Good Shows Alone

A friend of mine pointed out this article and I am furious. It appears that they are going to have Dora Grow up and get a makeover. She will be tween dora whose adventures are in the city shopping and playing magical guitars. What is going to happen to beloved boots? Was he a figment of her imagination? Also beloved backpack is he going to be bolsa (purse in spanish). Disgusting if you ask me. I love that dora could be like any little girl. She is sweet and almost tomboyish. This is disgusting and I hope it does not work. I hope heads roll. Leave our beloved innocent Dora alone and find some other toy or character to mess up like wow wow wubbzy. I could live without him...yea I could.

That's really sad. Not all little girls grow up wanting to shop and carry a purse all the time. Besides, Dora isn't really for "tween" girls anyway. Stupid.

Thats just nutz but it doesnt mean I will show my daughter it. She has no idea who barbie or bratz are right now, so who is to say she will know tween dora. At least till she is ready and hopefully by then tween dora will be gone, lol!

Honestly I have mixed feeling about this... I HATE Bratz and I honestly prefer my girls to continue watching Dora as they are growing up too...

If you read the article from Nickelodeon, you will notice that they dont mention anything about shopping and so on. Honestly I dont think they plan to change the show to be an "empty" and "stupid" show... kwim???

I dont think they are planning to change the audience with a new show... They are planning to keep the same audience as the kids are growing up....

I will surely miss boots, but who knows?? Curious George lives in the city.. Why can Boots live in the city, too?? LOL
