A popular TikTok trend calls social media users to find out how Dora the Explorer and Boots, her best friend and fellow explorer, died in the hit Nickelodeon show for kids that ran from August 2000 to February 2017. As the theories are quickly spreading, Dora could have drowned, been hit by lightning, or fallen into mud. How true is it? And how did the trend of scary TikTok videos start?
How Did Dora Die?
TikTok is one of the most popular and well-known apps in the world. On the site, there have been many trends that have spread quickly. The ‘How Did Dora Die' trend is one example. As was stated earlier in this article, “How Did Dora Die” is one of the most popular and talked-about TikTok trends.
People who like Dora are interested in how she died because of this viral question. They are looking for the answer to this viral question on the internet. But there isn't a clear answer to this. According to the summary, Dora has died 17 times, from drowning in the river to being struck by lightning and pushed into mud. But there hasn't been an episode that shows if Dora died or not and what happened to her.
People have different ideas about this, and some are shocked to read the comments and thoughts of other people about what killed Dora. But the most typical and usual answer is that Dora drowned in the river. Some people also thought that the bad guys on the show killed Dora.
How Did Boots Die?
The latest TikTok trend is for people to look up how Dora and Boots died and record how they feel about it. In the clips that come out of this, people tend to exaggerate how shocked they are by the theories. So, the clips do a good job of spreading the idea that Dora's end is a strange tragedy.
The only problem? In the first Dora the Explorer show, neither Dora nor Boots died. The TikTok craze, which started a few years ago with Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical, pushes users to choose from a growing list of false endings.
