'Dora the Explorer' Voice Made $300k Over 3 Years

10/13/2010 4:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She claims she's worth millions ... but TMZ has learned the girl who voiced Dora on "Dora the Explorer" was paid roughly $300,000 for her three years on the show -- the same rate she agreed to when she signed her original contract back in 2007.

According to our spies inside Nickelodeon, Caitlin Sanchez raked in approximately $1,250 an hour for her work on the popular children's TV show -- and still has untold amounts of cash in the pipeline from merchandise royalties and residuals from reruns.

But as we previously reported, 14-year-old Sanchez claims her salary just doesn't cut it -- insisting she was unfairly pressured into accepting the deal and subsequently lost out on the millions she thinks she's worth.

How much were you making at 14?

a lot of people are missing the point, saying that she is the voice of a beloved character.....the show has been on the air for 10 years. She was only the voice for 3 of those 10 years. She did not create the voice, only mimicked what others before her did.
When she came on the show it was already a "worldwide phenomenon" Her parents should have known better and not sign the contract.

Why is she naked on the photo? Is that legal, considering she's only 14 years old?

Honestly, she's not even worth $300k if she's going to be that greedy.
