The Charge


The Case

She's Nickelodeon's cash cow and the bane of humanity. She is Dora and with her grating, high-pitched voice, she will rupture the ear canals of dogs. And where is her nose? Don't get me started on that.

For Dora's Slumber Party, this malevolent being beckons you into her boudoir for six episodes of anthropomorphic map conversation, purple monkeys dressed in human clothes, and introductory Spanish lessons.

• "Boots's Cuddly Dinosaur"
Dora and Boots (and you!) need to find Boots's stuffed animal so he can go to sleep.

• "The Lost City"
It's another missing stuffed toy adventure and Dora heads to the Lost City to track her teddy bear down.

• "Super Babies' Dream Adventure"
I don' feel like talking about this one.

• "Louder"
The sun is asleep and Dora needs to get Red Rooster to crow, despite the fact that Dora's inside voice is a near-shriek and plenty loud enough to wake up a celestial body.

• "Little Star"
Little Star falls to Earth and Dora calls upon you and her magic astronomy powers to get it back in the sky.

• "Dora Had a Little Lamb"
Dora and Boots wield dark powers of the occult to enter the world of nursery rhymes and help the Little Lamb find Mary.

There you have it: 147 minutes of a continuous nightmare. But your kids should like it. Full frame, 2.0 stereo, no extras, the end.

The Verdict

Guilty of filling my heart with darkness and despair.
