Spectacled Bear Facts[]

  • Spectacled bears build nests just like birds, not beds like most humans.
  • Spectacled bears eat fruit, not jellyfish, because they can sting you, causing death.
  • Spectacled bears live in the cloud forest, not the ocean because they can't swim, therefore being one of the animals to drown easily.
  • Spectacled bears have warm and cozy fur, not feathers like most birds.
  • Spectacled bear cubs are afraid of pumas.
  • Spectacled bears have a good sense of hearing.
  • Spectacled bears love to hug.

  • This is the second time that Dora appears within the Go, Diego, Go! series and the first time alone.
  • Boots, Swiper, Click, Baby Jaguar, the Fiesta Trio, and Map all don't appear in this episode.
  • During the Una Adventura song, the monkeys are mirrored when they sang the first "Go, Diego, go!", just like Three Little Condors.
  • Diego does not use Click in this episode, nor does Dora ask Map for directions. Instead Diego uses his field journal to find out where spectacled bears live.
  • This is the third time "Sube" was sung, except the word is changed to "Suban".
  • Alicia does not appear until the "Let's Review!" in this episode like in Linda the Llama Saves Carnival. Additionally, she doesn't say "See you soon!" at the end of this episode, Dora says it instead.
  • This is the first episode Diego doesn't zip line after leaving the animal rescue center, Dora and Diego drive the Rescue Jeep instead.
  • This marks the first time Dora joins Diego's adventure and sings "Una Adventura" with him. Her first time singing Al Rescate will be the next produced episode.
    • And also, while beginning the song, Diego doesn't say "Clap your hands with us!". Instead, Dora says "Clap your hands with me!" while Diego holds the steering wheel to drive the Rescue Jeep.
  • Diego and Dora don't say, "Excelente" during the animal end song. They instead say "Yay!".
  • This episode premiered on Presidents' Day 2006. Additionally, there was a Go, Diego, Go! marathon leading up to the premiere.
  • This is not only Backpack's first appearance, but also the first episode for her segment on Go, Diego, Go!.
    • This means that this is the first episode to have her song sung in the spin-off series.
  • The yellow car is the same one from Chinta the Baby Chinchilla and Three Little Condors.
  • The snake cave scenario is reused from Chinta the Baby Chinchilla, but with chinchilla noises being replaced by an owl.
  • This episode is premiered along with the Little Einsteins' 18th episode of Season 1 "The Northern Night Light".
  • In this episode, after the animal ending song, the phrases "Rescue/Adventure complete!" and "You are a great animal rescuer!" are never said. Instead, "The nest is all built!" and "You are great at helping animals!" is said by Dora.
  • Although it premiered in 2006, it was made in 2005 according to the credits.


  • When Backpack was not being used, she can be seen with both side pockets. The star pocket can be seen on Backpack during her theme song for her segment, despite that there is never star-catching in Go, Diego, Go!.
  • Diego drives a car at age 8. In real life, one is not allowed to drive a car unless he/she is 16 years old or older (although here it doesn't apply due to cartoon logic).
