I'm the Map

I was watching Dora the Explorer yesterday with Megan (ahhhhhhhhhhhh but she loves it) and couldn't help but chuckle when I heard the "I'm the Map" song. If you're not familiar, click on the arrow above to hear it.

Now imagine . . .

Executives are meeting to discuss the creation of a theme song for The Map, a supporting character in the cartoon show called Dora the Explorer. This song will be sung everytime The Map appears on the show.

Executive: So, have you written a theme song yet???

Songwriter: Ahhhhhhh, why yes. Some of my best work. Here goes . . . I'm the map. I'm the map. I'm the map! I'm the map! I'm the map! I'm the map! I'm the map! I'm the map! I'm the map!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Executive: Hmmm, very good. I like it. Now which character will sing this?????

Comedian Brian Reagan loves to make fun of poor little Dora. Check him out here.

The worst part about watching Dora the Explorer - walking around singing "I'm the Map" all day . . . and thinking of the person who got seriously PAID to write that song.

I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the map I'm the

And my sister just reminded me of this . . .

The Backpack's Theme Song:
Backpack, Backpack. Backpack, backpack. Backpack, backpack. What the heck is up with the writers over there?

I was singing the map song and target and got called out by my husband. I didnt even realize i was singing it!
Diegos rescue pack song is better!!

Wow, I think if I had kids and had to listen/watch this stuff, I would poke my eye out.

The High Family said...

I have to agree that Diego's rescue pack song is 10x better!

ahhhh rescue pack...coming to the rescue...*insert Spanish here*...

I wanted to de-lurk and tell you how much I enjoy your blog. You are an awesome mommy! :)

I hope you don't mind BUT I kinda used your blog the other day to do a dance off with my little guy! I posted about it if you would like to see him dance to Hips Don't Lie...just come on over to my blog! It's hilarious! :)

This is a great post. Totally made me laugh out loud. My son refuses to watch Dora, which, after reading your post, is something that I am now very thankful for.

As I continued to read your previous posts, my smile grew even bigger once I read the letter to Mocha. I think you and I have the same dog. Perhaps I should try electronic communication with my mutt, since nothing else seems to be working. Have you noticed substantial changes in Mocha's behavior since the post?

I found your blog through the Blog Stalker and also thought I would de-lurk and leave a comment. One great site that you have here! For all of the laughs you have given me today, I thought I might try to return the favor and spread some holiday cheer in the form on a Deck the Halls Meme. Details are on my site if you are interested.
