Voice of Dora Screwed Out of Millions?

Caitlin Sanchez, the fourteen-year-old girl that has played the voice of Dora the Explorer for the past three years , is raising claims that Nickelodeon has screwed her out of millions of dollars!

In a new lawsuit filed by Caitlin and her parents, The Sanchez family claims that they were given a rinky-dinkĀ  14-page contract and only 22 minutes to review and sign back in 2007, and the end results cost their daughter the chance at “millions, maybe tens of millions of dollars.”

They are also claiming that Caitlin traveled to promote the show and new products on a $40 per day stipend.

A lawyer for the Sanchez family claims; “I’ve never seen as convoluted and inscrutable contract as I’ve seen here.”

A rep for Nickelodeon has called the claims “baseless”;

“Unfortunately, Caitlin’s voice changed and she was no longer able to portray the Dora character, as happened with the actress who originated the role. Caitlin’s contract was extensively negotiated through her agent and in compliance with her union. She was well-compensated for her work and for personal appearances. We have enjoyed working with Caitlin on Dora the Explorer these past three years, and we did in fact offer her a contract for other work with us.”

We don’t doubt they made boat loads of money off of the character she played, but this may be one of those instances where they are trying to get a few more squirts of milk from the cow before it’s run dry.
