An earlier blog post was written about a new animated series that depicted Dora as an older girl. The animated series is scheduled to start airing this fall 2014 on Nickelodeon. The addition of new series that includes an aged character is not new. Updated shows like these are part of animated and non-animated programs.
Those that remember that remember the ABC sitcom “Boy Meets World”, might be a happy to know that there is a new series in the works called “Girl Meets World.” The new series will be airing on the Disney Channel and will feature some of the original cast members.
Nickelodeon has also aged the original characters from the animated series “Rugrats” when the little babies in the show were aged to middle schoolers in “All Grown Up!” The sequel ran for 5 seasons, while the original ran for 9 seasons.
Throughout television history, viewers have wondered what would become of their favorite characters as they became older. There are different sequels that have tried to answer that question. Some have been better received than others.
As “Dora and Friends:Into the City” premieres, many eyes will be watching to see if it has the same staying power as its predecessor, “Dora the Explorer.”
