She’s little, but she’s mighty. Dora the Explorer has blossomed into a multibillion (B!) dollar franchise for Nickelodeon, that has not only been entertainment folks for ten years, the toon has potentially been educating them! The series is watched in over 150 markets in over 30 languages all around the world, where Dora teaches Spanish and Latin culture to English-speaking audiences, and English / American culture to Spanish-speaking audiences. There are Fisher Price toys, books, DVDs, video games, iPhone apps and more, all starring the cute little youngster that, originally, was a forest animal. …Wait, what!?

Yes, Virginia

On Friday, December 11th, at 8pm, CBS will be dusting off a 112 year old holiday tale, based entirely on a true story. The classic, Yes, Virginia, lives on now in animated form, as an 8-year-old girl asks the local paper “is there really a Santa Claus?” The answer, of course, is in the title. The special, produced by Macy’s and JWT in conjunction with The Ebeling Group and MEC Entertainment, is 30 minutes of pure, holiday fun. Be sure to TOON in to the Christmas story on Friday, and check out the trailer here
