A throwback for the all-time favorite, Dora the Explorer! Throughout the years, changes have been made and based on Dora the Explorer Wiki, here is Dora The Explorer Characters: Then and Now!
Dora was first introduced as a 7-year-old with a bob-like cut. She would always carry her backpack, has a bracelet of flower beads, with a violet shirt and orange shorts. Fortunately, we saw a grown-up Dora in her pre-teen. Now appearing before us with long hair and a violet flowered blouse. Her bracelet changed to a light blue chained-like with matching earrings.
A cousin of Dora, Diego is also an explorer of the wild! His jacket is the noticeable change one can point out. From all white with pockets, it became a jacket with a touch of blue on the shoulders and with no pocket. Another is his watch which was square-like that became a round shape afterward.
Pablo with his flute first appeared in 2001, and in 2014 he made an appearance again. This time around, he got the chance to venture with Dora. With the same color of shirt, he wore a yellow sweater under his new look.
Someone close to Dora’s heart, Abuela is Dora’s grandmother. For her 2014 appearance, she looked older than when we first saw her in the year 2000.
Emma helped Dora back when she was still a kid, in the year 2012. Now, she’s all grown up with her long wavy hair!
Kate is another one of Dora’s friends. She first appeared in one of the early episodes and is now a young lady.
One of Dora’s friends, along with Emma, Kate, and Pablo, here is Naiya. Even as a kid, her hair is in a pink ponytail with a white blouse.
Monica is one of the three cats Abuela owns. She first appeared as a kitten and is now grown up to be a cat. She is still wearing her necklace as seen in both pictures.
Other than being a kitten the first he appeared, he grew up to be a cat. He is still bearing the three-line-like on top of his head.
For Lucky and Pico, they both had different symbols on the top of their head. It didn’t go away for these two as Pico still has his triangle-like shape on his head.
Backpack and Bud
Backpack, the trustworthy carrier of Dora’s things! She is first shown as a violet bag with pockets beside it. Later on, she was designed in a new look after being torn apart. There are pink linings on her now with a flower petal design. Bud, the flower is sewed on her sleeves.
