While I can appreciate the values and education that you and your cousin, Dora, are attempting to pass along to preschoolers, I do have a small complaint.
You see, my daughter, Riley, is 23 months old and as of late has developed a slightly, albeit cute, obsession with your television show.
Normally, this is not too much of a problem except that she wants to watch your show even when it is not on. I have not yet been able to teach her about the structure and schedule of the tv guide.
So, in order to remedy this small problem, I have begun setting my DVR to record new episodes of your show. Problem solved, right?
Well, in today's episode, Cousin Dora made a guest appearance. The combination of her two most beloved cartoon characters on the television all at once was too much for Riley to contain!
It could only have been more exciting if you had been rescuing Blue and Magenta from the evil clutches of Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper (and let's not forget Baby Paprika) while Joe (or Steve) narrated the adventure.
Ok, but back to the excitement...
This caused Riley to run down the hallway screaming "Day-go! Dora! Day-go! Dora!"
Unfortunately, this was during Jeremiah's nap.
I was using nap time to get some much needed work done around my house. *sigh* I was being quite productive until this moment.
So, Diego. I appreciate the entertainment value that you bring to my home. I appreciate that I can often sneak in a shower while you memorize my child with stories of 3 toed sloths and baby beluga whales.
I just wish your show didn't come on during nap time!
Sincerely (yet frustrated),
