Characters present


Baby Bear gets scared by Swiper, so Dora, Boots, Diego and Baby Jaguar have to find him at the Big Bear Mountain.


Dora, Boots and Diego were exploring the animal center's baby animals. Then, Diego picks up a baby bear and tells them it is a spectacled bear cub. Then, they hear "mreow! mreow!" Baby Jaguar appeared. Diego tells them facts about jaguars while Baby Jaguar goes over obstacles. Then, he jumps into Diego's arms. Diego picks up a ball and explains that the ball is the spectacled bear cub's favorite. Then Diego tells them that Baby Jaguar and Baby Bear were best friends. Suddenly, Swiper pops up from behind the tree. Dora, Boots & Diego stop Swiper from taking Baby Bear's ball away. After Swiper disappeared, Baby Jaguar realizes that Baby Bear had run off. With help from Map, The four realize that Baby Bear was stuck atop Big Bear Mountain. Map explains that to get to Baby Bear's rescue, they have to go through the jungle and down el rio rapido (the fast river) before they can get to Baby Bear atop of Big Bear Mountain.

When Dora, Diego, Boots and Baby Jaguar get to the jungle. Diego tells Boots that they have to be careful because there is snakes, coyotes and crocodiles in the jungle. So they decide to ask another animal in the jungle, a frog, and they follow its ribbit to get out of the jungle.

Then, they check Map to find out where to go next. They realize that next they have to go down el rio rapido (The fast river).

When they got to the river, they find a raft. The four hop into the raft and they go down the river. Suddenly, a giant wave flows up and then, Map gets knocked out of Backpack and floats away in the water. Baby Jaguar rescues Map from the water. Then, they check him to find out where to go next. And the answer was Baby Bear who is located at Big Bear Mountain.

When they got there, Baby Jaguar climbs up Big Bear Mountain to save Baby Bear. After Baby Bear becomes glad to see Baby Jaguar, his rock begins to crack! Baby Bear is going to fall into the prickers and thorns! Baby Jaguar meows at Baby Bear. Boots gets an idea, Baby Jaguar can use his roar to tell Baby Bear to jump! But, Diego says Baby Jaguar has never roared before! So, they help Baby Jaguar roar for the first time ever. Baby Jaguar did so and roared very loud and Baby Bear jumps. Then when he got down, he was a little bit upset, Boots says that a little bit of ball time can cheer Baby Bear up! Dora checks Backpack for Baby Bear's ball. And they play with their ball and had fun. Baby Bear is so happy that Baby Jaguar saved him from Big Bear Mountain.
