Characters present[]

Animal Sound of the Orangutans[]


Orangutan Facts[]

  • Orangutan have orange fur that helps them hide in the trees, not purple fur, because if their fur were purple instead of orange, they would be called "Purplutans". That’s weird.
  • Orangutans move safely through the forest by swinging through trees, not skipping across daisies like in a childhood scene.
  • Orangutans eat fruit (such as durians), not jellyfish, because they can sting you, causing death.

Episode Events[]

  • Diego brought the orangutans to a place with lots of fruit trees, not lots of fish.



  • Starting with this episode, Rescue Pack is now voiced by Kyle Brenn instead of Keeler Sandhaus.
  • This is the first episode where Matt Hunter provides Diego's singing voice.
  • This episode introduces Burgin, who would appear again in Diego's International Rescue League.
  • During the Al Rescate song, Diego doesn't clap his hands, he instead swings from the trees. Also, tree-swinging replaces zip-lining during the song for the episode's song.
  • Alicia doesn't appear in this episode, not even during the "Let's Review!" segment.
  • This episode premiered on Nick Jr. exactly one year after Welcome Home, Lion Cub!, as well Catch the Babies (from the main show).
  • When Click says, "No!" the audio is taken from An Underwater Mystery.
