Alicia's Rescue Rope is a rope used by Alicia (and sometimes Diego). She was first used in Diego the Hero. Production-wise, her first use was in Diego and Alicia Save the Otters.


Alicia Rescue Rope is her rescue item of choice and can come in handy when an animal may be falling fast or she is in a tight jam, she usually calls on the viewer for help by asking them to shout the words lasso to make the rescue rope come to life as she twirls the rope around in the air or underwater and lassos whatever is in need of lassoing.

Physical Appearance[]

The rescue rope is mainly yellow and blue striped, and she is very long but small enough to fit in Alicia's pocket or in her submarine. When not sentient, the rope's end where its face appears is normally a blue and yellow knot shape. When coming to life, the knot splits up a bit and grows a yellow tuft with a small face with little eyes and a mouth, the only time the yellow tuft was present before she shouted the words lasso was in Alicia and Whitetail to the Rescue.

Episodes where she is used[]


Alicia: (twirls lasso) Say, "Lasso!"

(short pause, before waiting for the viewer to respond)

[Louder/Again]! Lasso!

(throws her Rescue Rope, and a face appears on her)

Rescue Rope: (as she is being thrown) Lasso!


  • Alicia's Rescue Rope initially appears to be an inanimate rope, but when Alicia does a lasso with it (while saying, "Lasso!" with the viewers), she becomes sentient and grows a face as she says "Lasso!".
    • "Lasso!" is the only known word she says.
  • She is the only object helper not to have a theme song, because of above.
  • Rescue Rope has the same three voice actresses as Alicia. She was voiced by Constanza Sperakis from "Diego the Hero" to "Alicia and Whitetail to the Rescue", Serena Kerrigan in "Manatee's Mermaid Rescue!" and "Tuga Helps the Moon", and Gabriela Aisenberg in "Fiercest Animals".
  • Dora does this exact same segment in the main show's episode Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom where she twirls a rope to lasso the sword from Kate, except her rope is not anthropomorphic.
