Nickelodeon's Dora Explores DVD23 Nov, 2002 By: Brendan Howard
Animated Nickelodeon star Dora the Explorer has found her way to her first full-length DVD.
Dora's Map Adventures marks the first time the pint-sized bilingual adventurer is all on her lonesome on disc (“Dora the Explorer” shares space on the Nick Jr. Holiday DVD Sampler with episodes of “Blue's Clues,” “Little Bill” and “Rugrats”).
Paramount Home Entertainment will release the title Feb. 4 (prebook Dec. 20) on VHS at $12.95 and DVD at $19.99.
The title will debut on disc with the two episodes from the VHS edition -- “Super Map” and “Lost Map” -- as well as two others -- “Three Little Piggies” and “Lost and Found.”
The release of Dora's Map Adventures -- and the simultaneous release of Blue's Clues: Blue's Big Band (VHS $9.95, DVD $19.99) -- will be heralded in print ads in Family Circle, Ladies Home Journal and other consumer magazines.
The DVD also sports a variety of kid-friendly activities in an on-disc Nick Jr. Parents Guide.
