EDISON - The Bergen County teen behind the voice of Nickelodeon's "Dora the Explorer" says the network cheated her out of millions of dollars.

The girl's lawyers claim she and her parents were duped into signing a contract that allowed Nickelodeon producers to exploit her.

Caitlin Sanchez, 14, of Fairview, became the voice of the Latina character Dora when she was just 12.
