Dora the Explorer is a play-along, animated adventure series starring Dora, a seven-year-old heroine whose adventures take place in an imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches, and rain forests. In each episode, Dora and her best friend, a monkey named Boots, invite the audience to participate in an exciting adventure where each step of their journey consists of a problem or puzzle that Dora and the audience must think their way through in order to solve the next problem.
Dora is proudly English-Spanish bilingual and uses her knowledge of both languages to communicate with her friends, overcome obstacles, and reach her goals. Ultimately, Dora and Boots triumph, and the story always ends with a "We Did It!" anthem.
