Wha? When was Dora the Explorer ever popular outside of its target demographic?

When the internet and pot smoking humorists got their hands on it, reinterpreting its "meaning" etc.

I do enjoy Kevin Smith's anecdote of watching Dora with his young daughter while high.

Wonder how he would react to seeing just one of the various episodes of Thomas the Tank Engine episodes where the egnine crashing, hang off broken bridges, or falling off the rails while being high...

Oh. Well, that's not really a good comparison. My Little Pony is a show that's legitimately entertaining to adults, more along the lines of Foster's Home or Powerpuff Girls, as said above. And then add to that the novelty / incongruity of grown men enjoying something that's super girly, and you get people making a big deal about how much they ended up liking it.
