Dora's Fairy Godmother Rescue (also known as Dora and Boots Help the Fairy Godmother) is the 16th episode of Dora the Explorer from Season 8.

Characters present[]


Dora and Boots help the Fairy Godmother fix her magic wand so she can get her puppy back.

Places in this episode[]

  1. Cinderella's Garden
  2. Beanstalk
  3. Highest Cave



  • The Travel Song is replaced by a new song about getting to the highest cave and bringing the Fairy Grandmother's magic wand back, titled "We'll Fix It!".
  • Kathleen Herles (the original voice of Dora from seasons 1-4 and Go, Diego, Go!) provided the voice of Cinderella. This was the first time she returned on the show since her departure in 2007.
  • Godmother's magic wand is purple but it technically matches Dora's pink shirt, and when it's broken, it looks similar and the same shape as the jigsaw puzzle wizard, El encantador's magic wand in the Season 2 episode The Missing Piece, but they're different colors and is broken in half.
  • In this episode, "We Did It" is performed while sitting down on the magic carpet instead of standing like usual.
  • Isa, Benny, and Tico don’t appear in this episode.
  • In the credits, it said "Dora and Boots Help the Fairy Godmother", despite not being the official title of the episode.
  • It's unknown how Swiper and the Fiesta Trio got into the fairytale book.
  • The Blue Cursor doesn't appear at all just like in Dora's Ice Skating Spectacular.
  • As Boots asks Cinderella about her slipper ("Hey, isn't that yours, Cinderella?"), Boots sounded like his first voice actor.
  • The early Season 1 version of swiping music is used.
  • Although this episode premiered in 2015 (Philippines) and 2019 (Nick Jr US), it was produced in 2013 according to the credits.
