Calling Out Dora the Explorer

I just now saw an episode of Dora the Explorer that contained some erroneous information that might get kids killed. In this episode, Diego tells Dora that a tyrannosaurus rex can't see you if you stand still. I don't think this is true.

What is going to happen when a kid sees a T. rex in a national park (or if one escapes from his pen at the zoo) and the kid just stands still instead of running for his life? You guessed it. The T. rex is going to have a snack and the kid is going to have a very bad day.

Parents everywhere should write the makers of Dora, Nabisco, and let them know we are very much displeased with their antics.
