Caitlin Sanchez sued Nickelodeon and its corporate parents Wednesday in a New York court. The 14-year-old says she hasn't been paid fees she was due for reruns, recordings for DVDs and other Dora products. She also says she wasn't paid for hundreds of hours of promotional work.
A Nickelodeon spokesman says her claims are baseless. He says Sanchez has been paid well.
"Dora The Explorer" is in its 10th year. Caitlin has been the bilingual voice of 7-year-old Dora since 2007, leading the show's audiences on whimsical adventures that also help young viewers learn English and Spanish.
