Dora: ¡Hola, soy Dora!

Boots: And I'm Boots!

Dora: Do you like fairytales?

Boots: Ooh, l love fairytales!

Dora: I have a new book! It's a fairytale about a young king and a magic crown!

Boots: Ooh-ooh, ahh-ahh! Read me the fairytale! Read me the fairytale!

Book: What's the magic word?

Both: Please?

Book: En Español?

Dora: In English, we say "Please." In Spanish, we say "Por favor." Can you say, "Por favor"? Say, "Por favor."

Boots: Por favor.

Dora: Great!

[She opens the book and begins to read]

Dora: Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, there lived a cute and cuddly kinjajou. Kinkajou was kind and friendly to everyone in the kingdom, and everyone loved him. Even the dragon.

(Heralding trumpets play fanfare)

Dora: On Kinkajou's tenth birthday, he was to be crowned king, and everyone came to see him take his crown.

(Fanfare sounds)

Dora: The crown was brought to Kinkajou.

[The Fiesta Trio brings out a crown in a box]

Dora: But when Kinkajou tried to put the crown on his head...

[Suddenly, the crown flies up in the air]

Dora: It flew off and floated up in the air!

Kinkajou: Down, crown, down! ¡Abajo, abajo!

Dora: But the crown wouldn't come down. This was a magic crown, and to wear it, you have to say the magic words "Por favor". But Kinkajou didn't know the magic words, and couldn't get the crown to come down. So Kinkajou couldn't be king.

[Cuts to a medieval styled Blueberry Hill]

Dora: Meanwhile, in another kingdom, there lived a naughty fox: Sir Swiper.

[Sir Swiper comes out of his hole and sounds his horn]

Dora: Sir Swiper wanted to be king, so he set off to swipe the crown for himself.

Boots: Oh, no! We have to help Kinkajou get his crown!

Dora: We have to tell him that the magic words are "Por favor". Will you help us go tell Kinkajou the magic words? Great! On the count of three, we'll jump in the book. Count with me.

Dora and Boots: One, two, three!

[They magically jump in the book]

Boots: We're in the book! But how do we get to Kinkajou's castle?

Dora: Who do we ask for help when we don't know which way to go?

Boots: The Map!

Dora: The Map, that's right. I need your help. Will you check the Map to find out where Kinkajou is? You have to say "Map".

[Map pops up, wearing a Robin Hood hat with feather]

Boots: Say "Map", say "Map"!

[Map zooms into the air]

["I'm the Map" plays]

Map: Who's the guy you need to know when you've got a place to go, what's my name?

Fiesta Trio: The Map!

Map: Say it again!

Fiesta Trio: The Map!

Map: Who can help you say "Hey, I figured out the way!" What's my name?

Fiesta Trio: The Map!

Map: Say it again!

Fiesta Trio: The Map!

Map: I'm the Map, I'm the Map.

Fiesta Trio: He's the Map, He's the Map.

Map: I'm the MAP!

(song ends)

Map: Dora and Boots need to find Kinkajou so they can tell him the magic words "Por favor". Do you see Kinkajou? Right, there he is! At the castle!

(Sir Swiper sounding horn)

Map: But look! Sir Swiper the Fox is headed for the castle! You'd better hurry! To get to the castle, first you go through the Dragon's Forest. Then across the drawbridge. And that's how you'll get to the castle!

[The stars appear and fly around]

Fiesta Trio: Estrellas!

Map: Oh, stars! Try and catch stars along the way!

[The stars disappear]

Map: So remember: Forest, Drawbridge, Castle. Say it with me. Forest, Drawbridge, Castle. Forest, Drawbridge, Castle. Forest, Drawbridge, Castle! [zooms to the screen]

Dora: Forest, Drawbridge, Castle. El castillo. Where do we go first?

(Cursor clicks the forest)

Dora: The forest, right. The Dragon's Forest. So first we need to find the Dragon's Forest. ¿Donde Esta? Where's the Dragon's Forest?

(Cursor clicks it)

Boots: Yeah, there it is!

Dora: Come on! We have to go tell Kinkajou, "Por favor"!

Boots: So he can get his crown!

[Travel song plays]

Dora: We're going to see Kinkajou to help him get his crown. We'll tell him the magic words so his crown will come down. What do we say? (clapping 3x)

Boots: ¡Por Favor! What do we say? (clapping 3x)

Dora: ¡Por Favor!

Both: What do we say? (clapping 3x)

Fiesta Trio: ¡Por Favor!

Dora: ¿Como se dicen? (clapping 3x)

All: ¡Por Favor!

Dora and Boots: (laughing and spinning around) ¡Por Favor!

A voice: Help, por favor! Help, por favor!

[They find an owl caught in a net in a tree]

Boots: Look! There's an owl!

Dora: And he needs our help!

Boots: What happened, owl?

Owl: I got myself stuck in this nest. Can you help me, por favor?

[They try to pull the net but nothing happens]

Boots: You're really stuck.

Owl: I know.

Dora: Don't worry, owl. I may have something in my backpack we can use to get you out of the net. I need your help. Will you check my backpack for something we can use to cut the net? You have to say, "Backpack".

Boots: Say "Backpack"! Say "Backpack"!

["Backpack, Backpack" plays]

Backpack: Backpack, Backpack. Backpack, Backpack. I'm the backpack loaded up with things and knickknacks too, Anything that you might need I've got inside for you. Backpack, Backpack. Backpack, Backpack. Yeah!

(song ends)

Backpack: I have lots of stuff, but Dora needs you to find something she can use to cut the owl out of the net. Will the cucharas cut the net? No. Spoons can't cut the net. Will the tijeras cut the net?

(Cursor clicks the scissors)

Backpack: Right! The scissors will cut the net! Smart looking! Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! Delicioso!

Dora: Tijeras! Now we can cut the owl out of the net. I need your help to cut the net. Make a scissors with your fingers and... Snip, snip, snip. Snip, snip, snip!

[The owl is free]

Dora and Boots: Yay!

Dora: Good snipping!

Owl: Thanks for setting me free! You've been so nice, let me give you some advice. On the trip, there's a lot in store; just remember to say "Por favor".

Dora: What do we say?

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

Dora: Gracias!

Owl: De nada!

Boots: Come on, let's go!

[They reach the forest]

Dora: Look! The Dragon's Forest.

[Boots tries to open the gate]

Boots: Open, open, open! This door won't open.

Dora: Wait a minute, Boots! Remember, the owl told us to use the magic word "Por favor". We know the nice way to open the door; we don't just say "Open", we say "Open..."

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

Dora: What do we say? Open...

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

[The door opens]

Dora and Boots: Yay!

(Horn sounds)

Dora: Boots, did you hear that?

Boots: That sounds like Sir Swiper the Fox!

Dora: If you see Sir Swiper, yell "Swiper!".

[Sir Swiper comes out of a bush]

Dora: Look, Sir Swiper!

Boots: He's coming our way!

[They enter]

Dora: We know the nice way to close the door; we don't just say "Close," we say "Close..."

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

Dora: What do we say? Close...

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

[The door closes]

Sir Swiper: Oh, man!

Boots: Whew! That was close.

Dora: Thanks for saying "Por favor". Let's go!

Boots: I wonder why they call this the Dragon's Forest. I don't see a dragon.

Dora: I don't see a dragon either. Do you see a dragon?

(Cursor clicks her)

Dora and Boots: A dragon!

(Dragon roars)

Boots: That dragon's roar is really loud!

(Dragon keeps roaring)

Dora: To stop the dragon's rumbling roar, we don't just say "Quiet," we say "Quiet..."

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

Dora: What do we say? Quiet...

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

Dragon: (stops roaring) Sorry! Sometimes my roar is loud. What brings you to my forest?

Dora: We're going to see Kinkajou to help him get his crown.

Dragon: I love Kinkajou! Here, I can give you a dragon ride through my forest.

Dora and Boots: A dragon ride!

Boots: Cool!

[They climb on her back]

Dragon: Hold on tight!

[The dragon takes flight]

Dora: I hear stars. Do you see stars?

Boots: Yeah, look! Stars!

Dora: Estrellas!

Stars: Yahoo! Yippee! Try and catch us!

Boots: And look! There are crocodiles down there! Hello, crocodiles!

(Crocodiles chomping)

Dora: We need the bridge to come down.

Boots: Down, please!

Drawbridge: ¿Como?

Dora: The drawbridge speaks Spanish. To get the bridge down, we say "Abajo". Can you say "Abajo"? Say "Abajo". And we need to use the magic words. To get the drawbridge to lower its floor, we don't just say "Abajo", we say, "Abajo..."

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

Dora: What do we say? Abajo...

Dora and Boots: ¡Por Favor!

Dora: Say "¡Abajo, por favor!".

Drawbridge: ¡Abajo!

[The drawbridge does not lower and sticks]

Dora: Oh, no! The drawbridge is stuck!

Boots: We need something slippery to loosen his chains.

[Sliparooni slides across the chains, loosening them]

Boots: Sliparooni's so slippery, he's loosening the chains!
