Dora the Explorer's Height refers to a series of memes regarding Dora the Explorer's alleged height of 5'2", a nonsensical height for a 7-year-old girl. Memes about Dora's height lead #Dora to Twitter's trending page in late December of 2020.
The earliest reference to Dora's nonsensical height was uploaded to Reddit on July 27th, 2019 via user i-like-memes21, who posted a screenshot listing Dora's height as 5'1 to /r/dankmemes, gaining only 24 upvotes in roughly a year. On December 29th, 2020 at 5:28 PM, _jeeby tweeted, "if dora's taller than u just stfu" along with a screenshot of a Google search for "how tall is dora" revealing her to be 5'2" according to a Fandom.com entry (shown below). Dora is not canonically 5'2" tall.
On December 29th, 2020 at 6:14 PM, JEN0HOLIC tweeted, "only people taller than dora can like this" along with a screenshot showing Dora's height as 5'2", garnering over 138,000 likes, 9,800 quote tweets, and 6,100 retweets in a week (shown below).
As the tweet went viral, more users began commenting on Dora's height, comparing it to the height of other fictional characters to highlight the absurdity of her being 5'7". For example, on December 30th, 2klightyrsaway compared Dora's height to the Pokemon Charizard's on Twitter saying, "Charizard only has 5 inches on Dora the Explorer" (shown below, left). On the same day, c4tboykurapika compared Dora's height to Attack on Titan character Levi Ackerman's on Twitter, garnering over 7,900 likes and 1,300 retweets in a week (shown below, right).
EwAMirror tweeted, "Grown-ass adults finding out they're shorter than Dora, who's like seven years old:" along with a video of a man holding back tears and claiming to be "all good" when asked, garnering over 6,800 likes and 1,000 retweets in a week (shown below).
