Dora the Explorer has come to life — sort of. And parental discretion is advised.
Nine months after scoring one of its biggest hits ever with a parody Dora movie trailer, CollegeHumor has turned the send-up into a three-part miniseries, Dora the Explorer and the Destiny Medallion.
"We did the movie trailer, and we loved the video, but the response was better than we had hoped," Sam Reich, CollegeHumor's president of original content, tells TVGuide.com. "With so many people asking for it to be a real thing — we don't really have that permission to release a Hollywood film —we said, 'What's the biggest version of this that we can do?' And the answer was web series ... and luckily all the stars aligned. ... This is one of the most ambitious things we've ever done."
