Mami: Food's ready! Time to eat!

(Others clamoring)

Boots: Mmm! I'm really hungry! That looks yummy!

Papi: Delicioso!

Dora: Hola, soy Dora.

Boots: And I'm Boots. We're having dinner with Dora and her family. Mmm!

Dora: (giggles) And this is mi Papi, mi Mami...

Mami: Hola!

Dora: Mi Abuela, my cousins, primo Diego and prima Daisy, and mis amigos Benny, Isa, Tico, and the Fiesta Trio!

(Fanfare plays)

Dora: Do you like to have dinner with your family? Great!

Mami: In our house, we tell stories at dinner.

Boots: Dora, will you tell the story of how you met me?

(Others clamoring excitedly)

Dora: Do you want to hear the story of how I met Boots? Okay, here's the story!

[Thought bubble appears; she begins imagining the day she became an explorer]

Dora: (narrating) One day, my mami and papi gave me a special present.

Mami: An explorer's kit, just for you, Dora.

Dora: (narrating) I was so excited.

[Dora exits the house]

Mami: Have fun exploring!

Dora: (narrating) And I set off into the forest to explore for the very first time.

[She comes upon mysterious footprints]

Dora: Ooh, look! Bootprints!

[She follows them up a tree trunk]

Dora: I wonder what kind of animal wears boots.

(Boots giggling)

[Suddenly, Boots appears from the tree]

Boots: Boo!

Dora: (gasps) It's a monkey! A monkey that wears boots!

Boots: I love my boots! I love my boots! I love my boots!!!

[He jumps out of the tree and takes them off]

Dora: (giggles) He's so cute! Hola, me llamo Dora. Como te llamas? What's your name?

Boots: My name is Boots!

(Rustling sound)

Dora: Ooh, I think there's an animal hiding in the bushes.

(Bushes rattling)

Dora: Do you see an animal hiding in the bush?

[Swiper pops out]

Dora and Boots: A fox!

Dora: What's the fox's name? Swiper?

[Swiper appears next to them]

Swiper: That's right! I'm Swiper, and I'm gonna swipe those shiny, red boots!

[He starts chasing Boots]

Boots: (Screams) Dora, help!!

Dora: Oh, no! We have to stop Swiper! What do you think we should say to stop Swiper? "Swiper, no swiping"! Say it with us!

Dora and Boots: Swiper, no swiping! Swiper, no swiping! Swiper, no swiping!!!

Swiper: Oh, mannn!!!

[Swiper runs away]

Boots: We stopped Swiper, we stopped Swiper! Hey, Dora, did you see me? (makes whooshing sounds) Thanks, Dora.

[She hugs him]

Boots: Thank you for helping me stop Swiper.

[He jumps back into his boots]

Boots: Well, nice meetin' ya. See ya!

[He walks off as Dora waves and stares at him sadly as if he's leaving already; as he looks back, she gets an idea]

Dora: Hey, Boots! Do you want to go exploring with me?

[Boots smiles and nods before jumping excitedly]

Boots: Ooh-ooh-ahh-ahh! Exploring, exploring! I wanna go exploring! ...What's exploring?

Dora: It's going on trips, and adventures, and looking for new cool things, and meeting new friends, like you.

Boots: Awesome!

Dora: Come on, vamonos! Let's go exploring!

[They both start to walk along the dirt path when...]

(Bike horn honking)

Fiesta Trio: Hurry, hurry! Coming through! Here we go!

Dora and Boots: Whoa!

Dora: Look, Boots! It's a frog, a grasshopper, and a snail!

Boots: And they're riding a bike!

[They stop]

Dora: Hola, me llamo Dora.

Boots: My name is Boots.

Dora: Como se llaman? What are your names?

Fiesta Trio: We're the Fiesta Trio!

Ribbit: We have to get to the Tallest Mountain, fast!

Hopper: So we can play our music!

[They imagine a queen bee sitting on her throne]

Slither: For the Queen Bee!

Hopper: The Queen Bee loves to hear music!

Queen Bee: The Queen Bee does not like to wait!

Fiesta Trio: Hurry, hurry! Whoopee! Whoo-hoo!

[They ride off; suddenly, they hit a rock and the cases containing their instruments fall off]

Dora: Uh-oh! They dropped their instruments! Wait! Esperen!

[But the Fiesta Trio is so far away they do not hear her]

Boots: Oh, no! They can't play music for the Queen Bee without their instruments.

Dora: The Queen Bee doesn't like to wait! Come on, we've got to bring these instruments back to the Fiesta Trio! Will you help us return the instruments to the Fiesta Trio? Great! Let's put them in my explorer bag for safe keeping.

[They come and stop at a cliff]

Boots: Where did they go? Where did they go?

Dora: (looks through binoculars) Look! The Fiesta Trio is riding their bike through that Nutty Forest.

Fiesta Trio: Whoopee!

Dora: Now they're taking a hot air balloon over that Big River. And now they're taking that rocket ship up to the top of Tallest Mountain.

Boots: Wow, they're fast!

Dora: So, we have to go through the Nutty Forest, across the Big River, and that's how we'll get to Tallest Mountain! We have to remember: Forest, River, Tallest Mountain. So we can bring the instruments back to the Fiesta Trio!

Boots: And they can play music for the Queen Bee!

[They start down the path]

Dora: Boots, let's say where we're going so we don't forget. Come on, say it with us. Forest... River... Tallest Mountain...

Boots: Forest... River... Tallest Mountain...

Dora and Boots: Forest... River... Tallest Mountain... Forest... River... Tallest Mountain!

[The first Travel Song plays]

Dora: Come on, Vamonos!

Boots: Everybody, lets go!

Dora: Come on, lets get to it!

Boots: I know that we can do it! Where are we going? (clapping 3x, stomping 3x)

Dora: Tallest Mountain. Where are we going? (clapping 3x, stomping 3x)

Boots: Tallest Mountain.

Both: Where are we going? (clapping 3x, stomping 3x) Tallest Mountain.

Dora: Where are we going? (clapping 3x, stomping 3x)

All: Tallest Mountain!

(Both laughing and spinning in a circle)

Both: Tallest Mountain!

[They reach the Nutty Forest]

Boots: We made it to the Nutty Forest!

[A nut falls on Boots' head]

Boots: Hey!

[More nuts appear]

Dora: Uh-oh, it's raining nuts!

Boots: Lots and lots of nuts!

Dora: Run!!! Run!!!

Boots: The nuts are falling faster, Dora!

Dora: We need to find a way out of the Nutty Forest quick!

[Tico appears behind them in his car]

Dora: Do you see someone who can help us get through the Nutty Forest?

(Cursor clicks Tico)

Boots: Yeah! That's my friend, Tico the Squirrel! Tico!!!

[Tico stops the car]

Tico: Suban!

[They hop aboard]

Dora and Boots: Seatbelts! So we can be safe. (giggling)

Boots: Tico!

Tico: Boots!

[Both hug]

Boots: Tico, Dora.

Dora: Hola! Me llamo Dora! Yo tambien habla Espanol.

Tico: Mucho gusto, Dora!

Dora: Mucho gusto!

Boots: Wow! She can speak Spanish and English!

(Nuts dropping)

Boots: Dora! Here come the nuts!

(All screaming)

[Tico speeds the car; stops at two paths]

Dora: We need to figure out which way to go to get through the Nutty Forest!

[Camera pans down a path with a yellow stripe with confetti running through]

Dora: I know! Let's follow the Fiesta Trio's bike trail! Sigan de camino de la bicicleta!

Tico: Ah, si!

Dora: We need to follow the bike trail. Does the bike trail go through the circle tree, or the triangle tree?

(Cursor clicks the circle tree)

Dora: The circle tree, right. Tico speaks Spanish; to tell Tico "circle", we say "circulo"! Can you say "circulo"? Louder!

Dora and Boots: Circulo!

Tico: Circulo, si!

Boots: Phew! That was close. But here come the nuts!

Dora: Oh, no! More paths! Does the bike trail go through the triangle tree, or the circle tree?

(Cursor clicks the triangle tree)

Dora: The triangle tree, right. To tell Tico "triangle", we say "triángulo"! Say "triángulo"! Louder!

Dora and Boots: Triángulo!

Tico: Triángulo, si!

Boots: But here come more nuts!

Dora and Boots: More paths!

Dora: Does the bike trail go through el circulo, or el triángulo?

(Cursor clicks the triangle tree)

Dora: The triangle tree, right! Tell Tico, "triángulo"! Louder!

Dora and Boots: Triángulo!

Tico: Triángulo, si!

[They make it out]

Tico: No más nueces!

All: Yay! Hooray!

Boots: Where do we go next?

Dora: We went through the Nutty Forest, where do we go next?

(Cursor clicks the river)

Dora: River, right. The Big River, El Río Grande.

Tico: Si, si! Ahi esta Río Grande!

Dora: Come on, let's go bring the instruments back to the Fiesta Trio!

Boots: So they can play music for the Queen Bee!

[They reach the river]

Boots: Dora, how are we going to get across the Big River?

Isa: You need a boat!

Boots: Who said that?

Dora: I don't know.

Isa: You need a boat!

Dora: The voice is coming from those flowers. Do you see someone hiding in the flowers?

(Cursor clicks Isa)

Dora: Yeah, look! It's an iguana!

[Isa hops out of the bush]

Dora: Hola, me llamo Dora.

Boots: My name is Boots!

Tico: Me llamo Tico!

Dora, Boots and Tico: Como te llamas?

Dora: What's your name?

Isa: My name is Isa. You need a boat if you wanna cross Big River.

Dora: Necesitamos un bote.

Tico: Un bote? Si!

[Tico presses a red button on the car panel, transforming it into a boat]

Boots: Tico turned his car into a boat!

Dora: Bravo, Tico!

[Tico pulls a cord on his vest, inflating it into a life jacket]

Tico: Salvavidas! Para estar seguros.

[Tosses life jackets to Dora and Boots]

Dora and Boots: Life jackets! So we can be safe.

[The boat goes onto the river]

Dora and Boots: Whee!

Isa: Wait! Wait! You need to know which way to go on Big River. If you go the wrong way, you'll get nibbled by the Nibbly Fish!

Dora and Boots: Nibbly Fish?!

Isa: Don't worry, I'll show you the way.

Dora: Thanks, Isa!

[Tico tosses a life jacket to Isa; she hops aboard]

Dora: Vamonos!

[The boat begins to sail]

Boots: Wow! Big River sure is fast!

Isa: We have to follow the numbers. To find the way to go, we have to find the numbers from 1 to 5.

Dora: Do you see the number 1?

(Cursor clicks it)

Dora: There it is! Right!

Isa: But here come the Nibbly Fish!

Nibbly Fish: Nibble, nibble, nibble, nibble, nibble...

Dora: Quick! Where's the 2?

(Cursor clicks it)

Dora: There it is! Where's the 3?

(Cursor clicks it)

Boots: There it is!

Dora: Where's the 4?

(Cursor clicks it)

Isa: Yeah, there it is!

Dora: Where's the 5?

(Cursor clicks it)

Isa: There it is!

Nibbly Fish: Nibble, nibble, nibble -- (shrug and swim away)

Dora and Boots: Yay! We made it past 5!

Dora: Boots! Don't stand up in the boat!

Boots: Whoa!!

[Boots falls into the river]

Boots: I'm okay!

Tico: Ay, ay, ay!

Dora: We've gotta get Boots!

[He floats down the river to where Benny is fishing]

Benny: I caught something! I caught...a boot? Hey, there's a monkey in this boot.

[He fishes Boots out]

Dora: Look! That bull saved Boots!

Isa: Hooray, hooray!

[They surface and Tico turns the car back to normal]

Dora: Gracias.

Dora, Boots, Tico and Isa: Como te llamas?

Dora: What's your name?

Benny: My name is Benny, Benny the Bull.

Others: Hi, Benny! Nice to meet you!

Tico: Hola, Benny!

Dora: We're taking these instruments back to the Fiesta Trio.

Boots: So they can play music for the Queen Bee!

Benny: Can I come?

Dora: Sure! But we've got to hurry. Vamonos!

Tico: Suba, Benny!

Dora: Yeah, climb in!

[Benny hops aboard]

Boots: Where do we go next?

Dora: We went through the Nutty Forest. We went across the Big River. Where do we go next?

(Cursor clicks Tallest Mountain)

Dora: Tallest Mountain, right!

Tico: La Montaña Más Alta, si!

Dora: Come on, let's bring the instruments back to the Fiesta Trio!

Boots, Benny and Isa: So they can play their music for the Queen Bee!

Dora: Rapido, Tico!

[They reach Tallest Mountain]

Boots: Whoa! Tallest Mountain is so tall!

Benny: It's the Tallest Mountain!

Dora: And we need to get all the way up to the top!

Isa: We need an airplane! (makes zooming noises)

Tico: Una avion? No hay problema!

[Tico turns the car into an airplane]

Dora, Boots, Benny and Isa: Wow!

Benny: He turned his car into a plane!

Dora: We have to tell Tico, "up", Say, "arriba".

[Plane goes up a little, then goes back down]

Dora: Louder!

All: Arriba!

Tico: Arriba? Si!

[The plane zooms into the sky; suddenly, the gas gauge runs out]

Tico: Ay, ay, ay!

Dora: Oh, no! The plane's running out of gas!

Tico: No se preocupen.

[Tico presses a button which deploys a parachute over the plane]

All: Hooray!

Benny: A parachute, a parachute! He's got a parachute!

[Suddenly, it ties in a knot]

Tico: Ay, no!

Benny: Hey, guys? I think there's something wrong with the parachute.

Isa: The parachute can't open! There's a knot in the rope!

Benny: Oh, no! Oh, no!

Boots: Don't worry, I know what to do! Watch me! (climbs onto the rope)

Dora: Careful, Boots!

[Boots climbs up to the parachute and grabs the knot]

Boots: It's stuck!

Dora: Quick! Let's help Boots pull the rope! Put your hands out in front of you and pull the rope! Pull, pull, pull, pull, pull!

[He releases the knot; the parachute is freed]

Dora: Good pulling! Thanks, Boots! You're a great climber! (hugs him)

[The plane lands and they all get out]

Dora: Look! There's the Fiesta Trio!

Boots: And there's the Queen Bee!

Isa: We'd better hurry!

[Meanwhile at the throne...]

Queen Bee: Well, Fiesta Trio, can you play your music or not? The Queen Bee does not like to wait!

Ribbit: Oh, your majesty, we are so very sorry.

Hopper: We wanna play our music for you...

Slither: But we've lost our instruments!

Dora: Wait! Wait!

[Dora and her friends quickly approach the throne]

Dora: We've got your instruments!

[She shows them]

Fiesta Trio: Our instruments! (take them)

Boots: You dropped them when you were on your bicycle.

Fiesta Trio: Oh, thank you, thank you! Gracias, gracias!

Ribbit: Now we can play our music for you, Queen Bee.

Queen Bee: I'd like a song with lots of buzzing in it!

Fiesta Trio: Oh, we know one! We know a buzzing song!

Hopper: Will you help us sing our buzzing song? Oh, good! Oh, good!

Dora: Come on, let's help the Fiesta Trio buzz for the Queen Bee. Whenever they stop playing, you say, "buzz, buzz". Say, "buzz, buzz". Now say "buzz, buzz" when the music stops.

(Music playing)

All: Buzz, buzz.

(Music playing)

All: Buzz, buzz.

(Music playing)

All: Buzz, buzz.

(Music playing)

All: Buzz, buzz.

Queen Bee: Beautiful!

Fiesta Trio: Good buzzing!

All: Hooray! Way to go! Lo hicimos! (cheering indistinctly)

Dora: Way to go!

[Zooms back out of the thought bubble back into Dora's dining room]

Dora: And that is the story of how I met Boots, and Tico, and Isa, and Benny, and the Fiesta Trio!

[Fanfare plays]

Dora: (giggles) And we all became best friends for life!

All: Yay!!!

Dora and Boots: We did it!

Fiesta Trio: This calls for a song!

["We Did It!" plays]

Dora and Boots: We did it!

Dora: We did it!

Dora and Boots: We did it! Yay!

Backpack: Lo hicimos!

Backpack and Map: We did it!

Dora: On my very first trip, I met Boots, Benny, Isa, and Tico. We did it!

Boots: We did it!

Dora and Boots: Hooray!

Boots: We got three lost instruments and returned them to the Fiesta Trio.

Ribbit: They did it!

Hopper: They did it!

Slither: They did it!

Dora: We met Swiper the Fox and learned how to say...

All: Swiper, no swiping!

Dora: And he ran away!

Swiper: Oh, man!

All: Hooray!

Dora and Boots: We did it!

Boots: Whoo!

(Cursor clicks)

Dora: I loved remembering the first time I went exploring with my friends. What do like you to play with your friends? That sounds like fun. I love playing with you.
