"We wanted a villain to up the stakes because one of the important pieces to the success of the interaction was to put our heroes on a high-stakes adventure where the kids are asked to interact in an important way." -- Valerie Walsh Valdes, creator and executive producer, Dora the Explorer.

"I hear kids saying Swiper's 'Oh mannn!' all the time. It's something we all say and can relate to. It's a kid response, and it's funny." -- Chris Gifford, creator and executive producer, Dora the Explorer.
