Production info

This season was mostly produced in 2000 and the last few were produced in early 2001.


  • Each time the blue cursor clicks on something, from The Legend of the Big Red Chicken until Sticky Tape, there is a fading effect.
    • As of Bouncing Ball, it got switched to a split-second rapid glow. This gets put to permanent use after said episode.
  • This and Season 2 are the only two seasons that don't have any double-length episodes.
  • Dora has a total of four different face designs this season.
  • The background color for Map's segment is brown in all episodes. Starting with Season 2, the background colors are randomly chosen per episode (pink, red, yellow, blue, etc.).
  • After Map reviews on how to get to where Dora and Boots have to go, he says, "So you tell Dora…". He does this again throughout Season 2, then in Season 3 onwards, he says, "So remember…". In the episodes The Legend of the Big Red Chicken, Lost and Found, Treasure Island, Berry Hunt, and The Chocolate Tree, he says, "So here’s what you tell Dora…".
  • This is the shortest running season out of the eight. It took more than one and a half years (August 2000-March 2002) for all the episodes to be aired.
  • This season, tied with Season 2, has the most number of episodes in a single season, that being 26.
  • In this season, Muhammad Cunningham voices Tico (only season in which it happens), who would get a new voice actor in the next three seasons.
  • During the Travel Song, Dora and Boots immediately say out the place they are going to after asking each other, "Where are we going?". This also occurred in the Season 2 episode The Big Storm. Beginning with Season 2, they clap three times before saying the place.
  • This is the only season to feature the travel song in all episodes.
  • This is the only season where all the episodes aired on TV before they appeared on home media.
  • The first three episodes (The Legend of the Big Red Chicken, Lost and Found, and Choo-Choo!) premiered on the same day.
