"Go, Diego, Go!" was obviously intended to be a show that was better-suited for boys than "Dora the Explorer." My 2-year old son tolerated Dora for about a three-week stint, then abandoned her. (Thank God. That show is insufferable.) But he is a devoted Diego fan, despite the fact that they've only had about eight different episodes to spread out over their first four weeks. He doesn't care.
Unlike Dora, who just stares into space for five minutes while you look for Strawberry Mountain like she's brain-damaged, Diego does smart, intricate things like identify animals by their individual cries and their paw prints. The other good thing is that, by focusing on South American animals, it teaches kids that there's more to nature than just cows, pigs, and chickens. It's a wonderful start to getting kids to realize that there's a bigger world out there.
My final thought? It's one of the few shows on Nick that I can actually sit through, so that's pretty good.
