Animals are Missing from A to Z is a song that Dora, Boots, and Armadillo sing on the way to each location as they go through the alphabet. They rode an airplane from B-D to get to the elevator at E, a firetruck from G-I, then a kite from K-N, and a train from T-Y to get to Z. It was heard on ABC Animals.
