dora the explorer actors mother makes statement about drama

The Dora The Explorer drama continues!

Check out the following press release, which was sent to us by the mother of actress who voices Dora the Explorer, Caitlin Sanchez.

Basically, they're calling Nickelodeon a bunch of liars and they want some $$$$$!

October 12th, 2010

Member of the Press:

Caitlin Sanchez and her parents, in response to Nickelodeon’s public statement last week on October 7th, 2010 in reference to the lawsuit that they were forced to file against Viacom and its subsidiaries, would like to release the following audio file that captures Nickelodeon’s own Jodi Davis (Vice President of Communications, Nickelodeon) explaining to Hilda Sanchez (Caitlin’s mother) that Nickelodeon wants Caitlin to be the face and voice of Dora for the next 2 years. This is in total contradiction to their public statement that implied that Nickelodeon “dropped” Caitlin as Dora because her voice had changed and she was no longer able to portray the character, when in actuality, Nickelodeon wanted Caitlin to continue to portray the Dora character through June of 2012. In fact, Nickelodeon’s other public statement stated that they “did in fact offer Caitlin a contract for other work with them”, is another egregious lie. The only other work Nickelodeon had ever contractually offer Caitlin was another two-year, exclusive contract to portray Dora the Explorer through June of 2012.

This conversation was captured on July 13th, 2010. This audio file will expose Nickelodeon’s public statement as an egregious lie perpetuated by their own representatives in an attempt to damage the reputation and discredit the claims of 14 year old Caitlin Sanchez, voice of Dora the Explorer.

Caitlin Sanchez would like to express the fact that she last recorded as Dora on September 30th, 2010. So obviously, Nickelodeon had no problems with Caitlin’s voice or ability to portray the Dora character.

Thank you,
Caitlin Sanchez and family

Check out the audio file (above) which Caitlin Sanchez's family references in the press release. Assuming it's all legit, it certainly seems to coincide with everything written in the document. Nickelodeon COULD be in some trouble.

    How old is the voice of Dora now? Also, did they make her grow up on the show too? If so, than great for the girl! lawsuits are frivolous. stick with the job. its a good job! suing makes it look like you just want the money with no work. i love dora! shes been around for ten or so years!

    OMG - Who cares if they SAID she'd be the voice of Dora for the next 2 years. Voices can change practically over night. Let it go Dora has been. You've been replaced.

    My kids don't even like Nickelodeon, take em' to the bank Caitlin! Go get that prestigious American Dream of suing a large corporation, settling, and then running off to NYC to become a heroin addict on the Z-list.. Go get em'…

    OMG guyz didn't you read it? They offered her a CONTRACT FOR TWO MORE YEARS HER VOICE DIDN'T CHANGE. O_O their lawsuit must have some credit if they quit the job. Nickelodeon is a LIAR.

    dora, sit your ass down somewhere & quit starting trouble. its a terrible look. who wants to work with a kid who's mom is hellbent on getting even or whatever the purpose of this lawsuit is (besides the cash). the show is incredibly annoying.
