Dora the Explorer Is Suing Nickelodeon

If Nickelodeon has a spaghetti taco filled with money, can't they let Dora the Explorer have a bite? That's what Caitlin Sanchez wants to know; the 14-year-old actress and voice of Dora is suing Nickelodeon, claiming that she was cheated out of millions when the show became popular, and was never adequately compensated for hundreds of hours of studio time (hundreds!). Sanchez and her family claim that she was only given 22 minutes to review her original contract — coincidentally, the length of any given Dora episode. Were there not enough pregnant pauses and very slow explanations? [NYDN]
