doraandfriendsbannerNew Young Adult/YA Dora the Explorer on the Horizon: Dora and Friends: Into the City to Debut! What’s Next? Dora, the Sad College Years?

Never one to say no to a good thing, Nickelodeon has opted to cash-in on their Latina golden goose! The morning mail finds our old friend Dora the Explorer all grown up, ten years old, hangin’ with her posse in the City, and, get this, now she has eyebrows.

I am actually all for the saturation of the vidiot network with pint-sized facsimiles of smart, bilingual, Latina animated stars, so I will hold the snark and just point you to some coming attractions! [Mas…]

It’s hard to get an acting gig in Hollywood if you’re Mexican — but not Mexican enough. This video, which was on YouTube Thursday and Friday, disappeared sometime Saturday. Sorry for the hassle.

Don’t go away, though. POCHO’s key word “casting” has plenty more stories where that came from. Ditto “Hollywood.”
