Dora the Explorer Characters

Swiper the Fox

Swiper the Fox

Swiper is a quick, sneaky fox who tries to swipe things that Dora needs to complete her quest. From delicious cookies to Boots' boot - if it's valuable, Swiper wants to swipe it. Then he hides it. Swiper serves an important curriculum role, as he always sets up our hidden picture games. Swiper is also a master of disguise and it isn't easy to catch him. In fact, the only way to stop Swiper before he swipes something is for Dora, Boots and the audience to call out, "Swiper, no swiping!" three times.

Dora the Explorer

Dora the Explorer is a half-hour animated children's television series starring a 7-year-old Latina girl and her friends. The show is designed to actively engage preschoolers in a play-along, computer-style adventure. In each episode, Dora invites young viewers to join her on an adventure or an exploration with a clearly defined goal at the end. Using Map to point out the stops on the way, Dora and the viewer must solve problems and overcome obstacles along the way to their goal. At the end of each episode, Dora, the viewer, and Dora's friends, celebrate with Dora's signature "We Did It" dance. Dora the Explorer is a ground-breaking children's show, in part because it incorporates play-along viewing and interaction in every episode. Dora the Explorer also introduces kids to Spanish words, encourages movement, and gives viewers the skills and the confidence needed to overcome challenges.
