  • Go Nightlight


  • This is the last episode of the series in production order.
    • Coincidentally, Dora tells the story about the Big Red Chicken in the exact same big red book from the very first Season 1 episode, The Legend of the Big Red Chicken, she also mentions that he loves doing his chicken dance in the story when he's happy and he is seen as his Season 1 self too.
  • Dora and Boots do not sing the Travel Song in this episode, they instead sing "Go Nightlight".
  • This is Mami, Papi, Diego, Benny, Tico and the Big Red Chicken's last appearance in Dora the Explorer.
  • This is the final episode that Dora and Boots never got the chance to stop Swiper, the last episode that he swipes from Dora and the final episode that Swiper only comes out once. However, in the next episode, "Dora Saves Fairytale Land", Swiper is stopped twice.
  • This episode premiered exactly 16 years after León, the Circus Lion premiered in the US, and the UK airing of this episode premiered exactly 12 years after Super Spies premiered in the US.
  • This is Señor Burro's third appearance.
  • This is one of few episodes where Dora has a sad look; she seems to be looking sad when Swiper swipes Night Light.
    • This also marks one of few times Dora's eyebrows are visible.
