The Dora TikTok trend follows videos of users showing their expressions before and after looking up how Dora the Explorer died.
Their reactions range from singing along to music, to their mouth gaping as they read the theories surrounding Dora’s ultimate end.
One TikTok user posted a video on May 28, 2022, asking other users to “record yourself before and after searching ‘how did Dora die?”
As the TikTok trend continues, users are posting their findings after searching for information surrounding Dora’s death.
However, answers vary from Dora having drowned after Swiper pushed her in a river to being struck by lightning.
“Who makes this stuff up?” read Talia’s caption.
There were over 8,000 comments with users sharing answers they got after looking the question up.
“Disintegrated by a lightning bolt,” wrote one user.
“It says for me she got pushed into a river by swiped and boots pushed her into quick sand,” wrote another.
Others were too scared to make a search, in fear of it “ruining” their childhoods.
DID DORA ACTUALLY DIE?
Contrary to the findings on Google and shared on the TikTok platform, Dora did not die.
The final episode of Dora the Explorer shows the adventurous character bringing musical instruments to her school.
She ends the episode, having completed her mission, singing the famous Dora the Explorer song, We Did It.
Meanwhile the film – which aired after the season finale – ended with Dora and her team completing an Incan mission.
