Dora Vs. Diego

Aamirah watches these two shows (mainly when she's not around me, because I totally banned them when I'm around): Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go.

Lately she's been asking for Diego more than Dora. This makes me displeased. Why do I care, you ask? This is why:

1. Diego's voice versus Dora's voice
I know people who want to stab their eardrums with ice picks when they hear Dora on, but Diego is worse. The emphasis on the syllables or beats of each sentence is exactly the same:

Bah BAH bah bah BAH-bah-bah BAH bah BAH! Bah BAH bah bah BAH-bah-bah BAH bah BAH!
The PUma is CHAsing the RED-eyed TOAD! We HAVE to save BAby Toad OR he'll DIE!

2. Diego is constantly saving animals that I have never heard of, making me feel stupid.
Although, I'd like to believe that many people don't know what a Kinkajou is.

3. The review at the end is pointless. 
It drags out the end, and it's even too simple for a 3-year-old child.

Does a fish live in water or in molten lava? Does a butterfly eat from a flower, or a rhinoceros ass?

4. Backpack could kick Rescue Pack's ass.

5. Bobos vs. Swiper
Come on! No contest. But I hate monkeys. Including Curious George.
