OK, I'm not doing any research here, so maybe I'm completely off-base. If I am, and anyone can set me straight, feel free to do so. Here's my question:

Why the hell does Dora the Explorer need a little boy named Diego to hang out with?!

Is this some kind of marketing thing, where some suits looking at numbers decided that not enough boys were watching Dora the Explorer and thus advocated the addition of a male character? If that's the case, then shame on them. God, I wish we'd get out of this "Everything is demographics and everything's a sales pitch" morass our culture has fallen into.

Yes, I'm focusing my anger about modern American society on a Saturday morning kid's show. Ya got a problem with that?
