Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
We went to nickjr.com to watch some of the online videos, and were denied! the message explained that they are not showing videos to non-USA visitors.
When did they start doing this? Why? Why, oh why oh why? Why hath Nick forsaken me?
Backpack asks: which of these things do you need to stay dry in the rain? (huge arrow pointer moves over umbrella, "click".) That's right! the umbrella!
Dora teaches that if you want something, you "click on it". Jake preaches the same thing!

I mentioned this to my wife and neither of us can see what the Dora brainwash could be, either. It's fluffy entertainment with a little drama as far as I can see. Pretty harmless.
If you want to talk about brainwash, it's Barney all the way. The incessant smiles and homogenous joy is over the top.
I think that Barney sets up unreasonable expectations from life.
Dora teaches that if you want something, you "click on it".
Is that brainwashing? Or education?
As the first (and only) cartoon i know of that uses that on-screen things-are-clickable paradigm, my first reaction to Dora was "hey - that's cool!"
and 2. I sense a little Manifest Destiny here...
51st state indeed. NEVER. I would rather be say.. the 1st or 52nd.
Love the wiggles Toot toot chugga chugga Big red car.
I gave them crap though on there visit to Toronto. I went to the Hit website looking for Canada dates and they had there one date (Toronto) makred under the USA tour web page. and didn't even mark it Toronto CANADA. I gave em a nasty little business form letter about not lumping Canada in like that. Maybe one date did not constitue spending for a dedicated page but AT LEAST say Toronto CANADA. A month later there was a CANADIAN tour Page. I guess I made my point well enough.
I often get exposed to the Wiggles when we visit there. I can't stand those guitar-wagging lip-syncing idiots.
