Go, Diego, Go!
Diego travels the world, rescuing animals, with a little help from his older sister Alicia, sidekick Baby Jaguar, and talking camera Click. When Diego’s really in a bind, he might even call on his older cousin, Dora (yes, that Dora). A bilingual kid, Diego gives viewers the opportunity to learn geography, zoology and Spanish. ¡Vámonos, amigos!

When Dora The Explorer was originally conceived she wasn’t even a “she”…the original lead was a male rabbit. Hard to imagine now that Dora is perhaps the best-known fictional Latina in the world. The creators could never have guessed that Dora and the spin-off series Go Diego Go! and Dora and Friends would become global phenomena, but maybe the reason why is actually quite simple: “Dora doesn’t just talk to kids,” Valerie explains. “She engages them. She makes them part of her adventure. She’s their friend.”
