The New York Daily News reports that the show's star — 14-year-old Caitlin Sanchez, the voice of Dora — has brought a lawsuit against Nickelodeon, claiming that she has been cheated out of potential income from the show.

I had to include the "Swiper no swiping" comment that someone posted to this story. It just made me laugh out loud. Shame on them. They are making millions and it looks like she really hasn't made that much in comparison. My vote goes for Dora (or her voice anyway).

I guess I would probably be mad. But at the same time, I think actors/actresses, or voice people make way too much anyways. Do they really need tens of millions of dollars for their voice? I see school systems getting less and less funding each year, and the unemployment rate in US is shocking. I guess I think that they should get paid a lot less, and I also think that movies making millions should give back. In a perfect world I guess.

The two issues underfunding of the school system and how much actors make are two different issues. If people really think that actors don't deserve the kind of money they make then they should stop spending money on cable television and at the movies, etc. They wouldn't make the kind of money they make if people didn't spend tons of money buying their little girls over priced Dora dolls. You can't just blame them. We are all part of this. People get paid based on supply and demand.

Secondly, she has created a lot of revenue for them and has been paid just a tiny fraction of that. $5,000 an episode is nothing.
