Yeesh. I don’t have to tell you. Watch ten minutes of Dora the Explora. Yes, I wrote “Explora”, because that’s what rhymes with “Dora”.
She and the rest of her gang of psychos never just say anything. They scream it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve now watched my fair share of kid’s shows. This won’t be the last in a series of television judgment. But so far without fail, Dora seems to handle every episode as a scream fest. I get that a child’s attention span is small and you need to find ways to keep them engaged, but those of us with fully functioning eardrums are usually watching as well. Plus, it’s hard to not teach the Knob an inside voice when he then watches a show where every character is screaming their brains out.
