Repetitive Speech in 4 year old

My 4 year old granddaughter Elisha watches Dora and repeats the dialogue from specific episodes (including intonation) over and over. She seems to get into a jag that she can't get out of. She is normal in every other way - extremely bright, happy and fun. But this has me very worried. She watches other cartoons and doesn't do this - just with Dora. Should we be concerned?

I think she might just like Dora. If it continues and starts with other things I would get her checked. Does she copy what you say like."what are you up to?"
and repeats it back to you? If she does then I would take her to a speech therapist

I think many children repeat things.. it mean nothing other than she enjoys Dora..I have heard many children asking questions over and over , in my opinion its what they do around this age ...

I would only be worried if that was the only thing she was saying.  But as you said, she is normal and bright, so like the others said, she probably just likes Dora.  Heck, I like Dora..lol.
