Together We Can Break the Spell


  • This is the second episode where Dora goes on a dream trip after Dora's Moonlight Adventure.
  • Boots doesn't go with Dora for the whole trip, but does take her across the windy lake.
  • Swiper does not appear in this episode or join Dora, Boots, and Diego for the museum sleepover.
    • However, a giant takes Swiper's place as an antagonist.
  • This is the second time that Rainbow Bridge appeared after the Season 2 episode Quack! Quack!.
  • The chinchilla turns into a unicorn so Dora can go across Rainbow Bridge.
  • This is the 170th episode of the show.
  • ¡Por Favor! is the name of the painting, during the Map song, the Fiesta Trio’s singing is taken from the episode of the same name.
  • The Travel Song's role is taken by the new song "Together We Can Break the Spell".
  • Papi and Abuela do not appear in this episode.
  • Isa, Benny, Baby Jaguar, Daisy, Alicia, Mama Jaguar and Tico do not appear in this episode or join Dora, Boots, and Diego for the museum sleepover.
  • Backpack is not used in this episode.
  • The YouTube version jump-cuts to the sped-up credits and cloud scenes without a fade-out, causing a transitional flow into the beginning of the credit music. But the music fades out midway, and the 2009 Nickelodeon logo plays its own theme at a slower and lower pitch, due to being a Season 8 episode. The logo then whooshes to the left.
  • This episode somehow alludes to the plot of an episode of Disney's French animated series "Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir".


  • The attempt to jump-cut to the episode without a fade-in in the YouTube version has failed, as one frame shows the episode fading in.

Running Gag[]

  • When Dora helps someone, she uses the magic cape that can only help if "Capa Magica" is said.
