Summary

Dora and Boots learn a mambo dance and are invited to Daisy's 15th birthday party. They receive a call from Daisy saying that she needs her crown and shoes for the party. However, the party can't start without the celebrant's crown and shoes, so Dora and Boots have to hurry to give Daisy her special birthday present. Dora and Boots must take the fastest route to the party by going past the barn and through the rainforest.

Trivia

  • This is the 7th episode to have a Spanish title.
    • This title of the episode means "Daisy's 15th birthday".
  • This is the 78th episode of the show (79th in earlier airings).
  • Benny, Tico, Isa, and Alicia do not appear in this episode.
  • The book adaptation of this episode by Alison Inches is titled as The Birthday Dance Party!
  • The Mambo song was later redubbed in the Nick Jr. Mambo Dance clip using Fatima Ptacek's voice.
  • This is the second episode Dora uses the phone. This previously occurred in Job Day.
  • Swiper does not make whisking sounds in this episode.
    • Also, this is his first appearance for Season 4.
  • This episode premiered exactly 3 years after "Te Amo" premiered.
  • This is the second episode where the Barn was a location, first being Three Little Piggies. However, in Egg Hunt, a similar location appears called the Farm.
  • Dora and Boots don't sing the Travel Song in this episode because they wanted to practice the mambo dance for Daisy's party, so they instead sing Mambo.
  • This is the second episode (and the first half-hour episode) where Dora doesn't use the picture pop-up sequence and instead checks Map each time they finished a place.
    • This is also the first episode where Map was checked three times since the previous episode features four locations instead of the usual three.
  • The Fiesta Trio doesn't appear during the Map sequence, not even when Map sang his I'm the Map song.
  • After Dora sang, "Lo hicimos", Map and Backpack did not sing "We did it!" because they were taken off when Dora changed into her outfit for Daisy's quinceañera. Instead, she sings it.
  • This is the second episode where Dora, Boots, and Diego (first episode for Baby Jaguar) ride on giant condors, first being Meet Diego!.

Goofs/Errors

  • Despite the dance being called the Mambo, it looks nothing like an actual Mambo dance in real life (although here it does not apply, due to cartoon logic).
  • In real life, one cannot ride on a giant condor.
  • Unlike Journey to the Purple Planet and ABC Animals, although there was no star-catching, an Explorer Star mini-game plays anyway instead of a Character Find (Baker Star, Baseball Star, and Policia had their mini-games).
  • It is unknown why Alicia did not show up for the party. However, she does not debut until Big Sister Dora.
