  • Fifi the skunk in France, Sammy the hyena in Tanzania, Fomkah the bear in Russia and Ying Ying the weasel in China always try to swipe things like Swiper and all wear the same mask and gloves as Swiper.
    • Not only Fifi the skunk, Sammy the hyena, Fomkah the bear and Ying Ying the weasel appear right away to swipe everyone's stuff, they also make the same whisking sound Swiper does.
    • Everyone says the character's name followed by "no swiping!" three times to stop them, and they all say "Oh, man!" in their own ways. (Alors, zut! for Fifi, Eee! for Sammy, Oye! for Fomkah, and Nin nah! for Ying Ying)
  • This is the first time the Travel Song (but with different instrumentals) features four places to go instead of three. It is also the second episode in which Swiper sings it with Dora. Also, the answer to the question "Where are we going?" is "Around the world".
  • The Fiesta Trio don't jump out to say the final place they're going.
  • Isa mentions that everyone has got to stop Swiper from swiping the bracelets but they are too late anyway.
  • Dora travels without Boots in this episode as he does not travel with her because she tells him to stay behind looking after everything by being in charge while she is gone.
  • This is the last episode to find Swiper.
  • As soon as Dora goes behind the Paris fountain, her old clothes disappear and change right away into Paris clothes.
  • Swiper wears a blue bowtie to The Friendship Day Party when he and Dora return home.
  • When each of the animals make the same whisking sound as Swiper, everyone says the same line "that sneaky (animal) is always trying to swipe our stuff" which is exactly what Boots always says whenever he's traveling with Dora.
  • Fifi the skunk has the same first name as Fifi La Fume from the 1990 cartoon Tiny Toons. They’re both female skunks and they speak with French accents.


  • After Dora puts on her France outfit, her flower bracelet disappears for the rest of the episode.
  • In the closed-captions, "Previet" is listed as "Afraidyet".
  • When Dora and Swiper reach to China and have already jumped over the wall, Dora can be seen in her regular garments.
  • When Dora comes off the airplane, her backpack disappears, then Backpack is found in the crowd.
  • During the end credits, Swiper's name is in the end credits but it's credited as Swipers instead of Swiper.
    • Perhaps Fifi the skunk, Sammy the hyena, Fomkah the bear, and Ying Ying the weasel are part of the Swipers along with Swiper and the end credits state that Marc Weiner voiced them all, including Map.
