Episode Transcript[]

Dora: Hi, I’m Dora!

Boots: And I’m Boots!

[Dora opens animal book. The left page has a cow and a rooster and the right page has a frog (it’s a special kind of frog, often found in Puerto Rico, that sings)]

(Pushes top red button)

(Sound of a cow mooing)

Dora: What animal makes that sound?

Boots: A cow, a cow!

Dora: Right, a cow goes (imitating cow) "Moo! Moo!” Boots and I are reading a book about animals and what sounds they make.

(pushes middle purple button)

(Sound of a rooster crowing)

Dora: What animal makes that sound?

Boots: (flaps like a rooster) A rooster, a rooster!

Dora: A rooster, right! A rooster says "Cock-a-doodle-doo! Cock-a-doodle-doo!"

(both laughing)

Boots: Hey Dora, what sound does that little frog make?

Dora: That’s a special kind of frog, Boots. Listen!

(presses bottom green button)

Frog: Coquí! Coquí!

Boots: (laughs) That’s a funny frog, Dora!

Dora: This little frog is called a coquí, just like his song!

(Presses the button again)

Frog: Coquí! Coquí!

[Just then, an actual coquí frog just on Boots and then Dora's head, and jumps down to solid ground. The coquí even has a guitar on its back]

(Coquí strums his guitar)

Boots: Look, it’s a little frog! And he has a guitar!

Dora: ¡Una guitarra!

Boots: Hey Dora, he looks just like the picture of the coquí.

Dora: Hey Boots, I think he IS a coquí!

Boots (in excitement): Ooh-ooh-aah-aah!

Dora: Maybe he’ll sing for us!

Boots (in excitement): Sing, Coquí, sing!

Coquí: (strums his guitar) (in a raspy voice) Coquí, Coquí!

[Dora and Boots wait, but then realize his voice is too raspy to sing]

(nothing happens)

Boots (whispering): Dora, I don’t think he can sing!

(Coquí shakes his head no)

Dora: Boots, it says in this book that Coquí lives on a beautiful island. Uh oh! If he leaves the island, and is away from his family and friends, he gets sick and he can’t sing! Coquí, is that true?

[Coquí nods his head yes, so unfortunately it is true.]

Coquí (sad): Coquí, Coquí! (cries)

Dora: (picks him up and hugs him) Don’t worry, Coquí! Boots we have to take Coquí home.

Boots: So he can sing.

Coquí: (strums his guitar) (happily): Coquí!

Boots: (walks away) Come on, let’s go!

Dora: Boots?!

Boots: Yeah, Dora?

Dora: We need to find out how to get to Coquí's Island! Who do we ask for help when we don’t know which way to go?

Boots: The Map, the Map!

Dora: The Map, that’s right! The Map can tell us how to get Coquí home to his island! I need your help. Will you check the Map to find out how to get to Coquí's Island? You have to say "Map!".

(Map pops out of Backpack)

Boots: Say "Map"! Say "Map"!

[Map zooms to the air]

Map: [Sings his I'm the Map song] Dora and Boots want to know how to get to Coquí's Island so Coquí can sing! Well I know how to get to Coquí's Island. First, you go through the Echo Bush!

Echo Bush: Through the Echo Bush!

Map: Then, you go over the ocean. And that's how you get to Coquí's Island!

Coquís: Coquí! Coquí!

Map: So you tell Dora: Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island! Say it with me! Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island. Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island. Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island! [zooms to the screen]

Dora: How do we get to Coquí's Island? (three pictures pop in front of her) Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island. First we go through the... Echo Bush!

Echo Bush: Through the... Echo Bush!

Dora: Then over the ocean. And that’s how we'll get to Coquí's Island to take Coquí home!

Coquís: Coquí! Coquí!

(pictures disappear)

Boots: So he can sing!

Coquí: Coquí, Coquí!

Dora: First we need to find the Echo Bush. Do you see an echo bush?

(cursor clicks it)

Boots: Hey, yeah! There’s the Echo Bush!

Coquí: Coquí, Coquí!

Dora: All right! Come on, vamanos! Let’s take Coquí home!

Boots: So he can sing!

Dora: Come on, say it with us!

Dora and Boots: Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island! (4x) Come on, vamanos! Everybody let’s go!

Boots: Come on, let’s get to it!

Dora: I know that we can do it! Where are we going?

Boots: Coquí's Island. Where are we going?

Dora: Coquí's Island.

Dora and Boots: Where are we going?

Fiesta Trio: Coquí's Island!

Dora: Where are we going?

All: Coquí's Island!

[laughing and dancing around Coquí]

Dora, Boots, and Coquí: Coquí's Island!

Coquí: Coquí, Coquí!

Boots: Don’t worry, Coquí, we’re almost....

[Whisking sound]

Boots: Did you hear that?

[Whisking sound again]

Dora: That sounds like Swiper the Fox!

Boots: That sneaky fox is always trying to swipe our stuff.

Dora: He'll try to swipe Coquí's guitarra! I need your help. If you see Swiper, yell "Swiper!"

[Swiper pops out of a bush]

Dora: You see Swiper?

[Swiper disappears]

Dora: Where?

[He comes out]

Boots: Yeah!

Dora: Help us stop Swiper. You have to say "Swiper, no swiping!". Say it with us!

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

Swiper: Oh man! (snaps his finger then runs away)

Coquí: Coquí, Coquí!

Boots: Yes! We stopped Swiper!

Dora: Thanks for helping us! Come on. Let’s take Coquí home!

Coquí: (strums his guitar) Coquí, Coquí!

Dora: ¡Vamanos!

Voice (which happens to be the Echo Bush): ¡Vamanos!

Dora: Who said that?

Echo Bush: Who said that?!

Boots: Yeah, who’s talking?

Echo Bush: Yeah, who's talking?!

Boots: The bush talks!

Echo Bush: The bush talks!

Dora: That bush says everything we say!

Echo Bush: That bush says everything we say!

Boots: Is that the Echo Bush?

Echo Bush: Is that the Echo Bush?!

Dora and Boots (quietly): It’s the Echo Bush... (giggling)

Echo Bush (quietly): It’s the Echo Bush (giggles just like Dora and Boots)

Boots: Ooh-ooh-aah-aah!

Echo Bush (imitates monkey): Ooh-ooh-aah-aah!!!

Dora and Boots: (laughing loudly) (High-fiving each other)

Echo Bush: (laughs loudly)

Boots: Dora, how do we get through the bush?

Echo Bush: Dora, how do we get through the bush?! (lizard jumps over his open mouth)

Dora: Ahhhh...!

Echo Bush: Ahhhhh...!

Dora (whispering to Boots' ear): I have an idea! If we open our mouths really wide and say "Ahhhhh!", the bush will echo us and say "Ahhhh!". And then we can jump right through to the other side!

Echo Bush: (whispering gibberish) .....other side!

Dora: I need your help! Say "Ahhhhh!".

Dora, Boots, and Coquí: Ahhhhhh!!

Echo Bush: Ahhhhhh!

Dora, Boots, and Coquí (louder): AHHHHHHHHHH!!! (running and jumping through Echo Bush's open mouth)

Echo Bush (louder): AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Dora and Boots: (cheering): YAYYYYYYY!!!

(Fiesta Trio plays fanfare)

Dora: We made it through the Echo Bush! Thanks for saying "Ahhhh!".

Boots: Where do we go next, where do we go next?!

(pictures pop up in front of Dora)

Dora: Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island! We went through the bush!

Echo Bush: Through the Bush!

Dora: So now we have to go over the...?

(cursor clicks second picture, the ocean)

Dora: Ocean! Right!

(pictures disappear)

Dora: Now where’s the ocean?

(cursor clicks it)

Boots: Yeah, there’s the ocean!

Dora: Come on! Let’s take Coquí home!

Boots: So he can sing!

Coquí: (strums his guitar)

Dora: Come on, say it with us!

Dora and Boots: Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island! (4x) Come on, vamanos! Everybody let’s go!

Boots: Come on, let’s get to it!

Dora: I know that we can do it! Where are we going?

Boots: Coquí's Island. Where are we going?

Dora: Coquí's Island.

Dora and Boots: Where are we going?

Fiesta Trio: Coquí's Island!

Dora: Where are we going?

All: Coquí's Island!

[laughing and dancing around Coquí]

Dora and Boots: Coquí's Island!

Boots: Wow! This ocean sure is foggy!

Dora: It sure is, Boots!

(waves crash)

Coquí (scared): Coquí, Coquí!

Boots: (picks him up) Don’t worry, little buddy! We'll get you home. (whispers to Dora): How do we get him home?

Dora: We just have to find a way to get over the ocean. Let’s stop and think. Do you see something that can take us over the ocean?

(The fog clears up and reveals a red ship)

Dora: Right, the boat! A boat can carry us over the ocean and can take us to Coquí's Island!

Boots: So he can sing!

Coquí: (strums his guitar) Coquí, Coquí!

(When the ship gets closer, Dora and Boots found out that Señor Tucán is the captain)

Dora: Look, it’s our friend Señor Tucán!

Señor Tucán: ¡Hola, Dora y Boots! ¡Hola, Coquí!

Dora: ¡Hola!

Boots: Hi!

(All waving to him)

Dora: ¿Señor Túcan, nos vemos llevar a la Isla de Coquí?

Señor Tucán: ¡Sí, pues claro! Pero tienen que apurarse.

Dora: Señor Tucán can take us to Coquí's Island, but we have get tickets to get on the boat.

Ticket Machine voice: ¡Una moneda, por favor! (2x)

Boots: Dora what'd it say?

Dora: Tickets cost one coin each!

Boots: Oh no! I don’t have any coins!

(Coquí looks around, he doesn’t have any either)

Dora: I bet I have some coins in my Backpack. I need your help. Will you check my Backpack to find the coins? You have to say "Backpack!".

Boots: Say "Backpack"! Say "Backpack"!

Backpack: (sings her song, "Backpack, Backpack"). ¡Hola! I’m the Backpack! I have lots of stuff! Dora and Boots need to find the red coins with five dots so they can buy tickets to get on the boat! First let’s find all the red coins!

(Cursor clicks all red coins. There are two kinds of red coins: one has three dots, the other has five dots)

Backpack: Great! Now which are the red coins with five dots?

(Cursor clicks the red coin with five dots)

Backpack: Right! ¡Excellente! You found the red coins with five dots! (sucks the other coins back inside) Yum-yum-yum-yum-yum! Delicioso!

Dora: The coins great! We need a coin for each of us!

Boots: So how many coins do we need?

Dora: Three coins, right! The ticket machine speaks Spanish so let’s count in Spanish! Repeat after me. (inserts coin) Uno, (inserts coin) dos, (inserts coin) tres! That’s three coins for the three of us!

(Pulls lever and three tickets, with a picture of a boat on it, come out)

Dora and Boots: (cheering): Yay!!

Dora: Thanks for helping us count to three in Spanish!

Señor Tucán: ¡Todos a bordo! ¡Apurense!

Dora: We better hurry!

(They hurried to the ship and climbed aboard)

Boots: We're gonna have you home soon, Coquí!

Coquí: Coquí, Coquí!

(They made it just in time before the ship left)

(The ship starts moving. Along the way, the fog returns)

Boots: Here comes the fog, Dora!

Dora: And there’s a lot of it! I can’t see a thing!

Boots: Good thing we don’t see any ships! We could bump right into them!

[Suddenly, Coquí saw something. He hops up and down and points to something that’s coming.]

Dora: What’s wrong, Coquí? You see what?

[The fog reveals a big purple ship coming right towards them]

Dora: A ship?!

Boots (in fear): Ooh-ooh-aah-aah! Look, it’s a big ship. And it’s coming straight at us!

Dora: We have to tell the big ship to watch out or it’ll bump into us!

(Dora waves her arms back and forth and told the ship to watch out)

Dora (yelling as loud as she could): ¡Cuidado, cuidado!

(The ship is still going because Dora wasn’t loud enough)

Boots: The big ship's not stopping, Dora!

Dora: I need your help! Put your arms in front of you and wave them back and forth.

(She and Boots do so)

Dora: Now say "¡Cuidado!". Say it with us!

Dora and Boots (as loud as they could): ¡Cuidado, cuidado, cuidado!!!

(horn beeps and the ship moved a different direction)

Dora and Boots: (cheering): Yay!!

Dora: Thanks for saying "¡cuidado!" to warn the other ship!

(Fiesta Trio playing fanfare)

Dora: We made it across the ocean!

Dora and Boots: All right!

Coquí (in excitement, but still raspy voice): Coquí, Coquí!

Dora: We have to get Coquí home!

Boots: So he can sing!

Coquí: (strums guitar) Coquí, Coquí!

Boots: Dora, where do we go next?

(pictures pop up in front of Dora)

Dora: Bush, Ocean, Coquí's Island! We went through the bush...

Echo Bush: Through the bush!

Dora: ...over the Ocean. So next is...?

(cursor clicks the picture on the right, Coquí's Island)

Coquís: Coquí, Coquí!

Dora: Coquí's Island, right!

(fog clears up and reveals Coquí's Island)

Dora: Do you see Coquí's Island? You do, where?!

(cursor clicks it)

Coquí (in excitement, but voice still raspy): Coquí! Coquí!

Boots: Yeah, there it is! There’s Coquí's Island! Let's go!

(Anchor splashes in the water)

Dora: Oh, Boots! The ship can’t go any further because of all those rocks in the water!

Boots: Oh no! How will we get Coquí home so he can sing?

(Coquí has an idea, he jumps across the rocks)

Dora: Look at Coquí, he’s jumping across the rocks!

Boots: Yeah, just like a frog!

Dora: I know, we can jump like Coquí across the rocks!

(Dora and Boots jump off the ship)

Dora: Will you help us jump across the rocks? Great! You have to stand up to jump like Coquí. Stand up, please! Stand up!

Boots: Up, up, up! Up, up, up!

Dora: Now bend your knees and crouch down low. Crouch down, crouch down! Now jump up like Coquí!

Boots: Jump!

(Dora, Boots, and Coquí jump across the rocks to the island)

Dora: Jump, jump, jump, jump!

Dora and Boots: (cheering): Yay!!

Dora: Good jumping!

(Fiesta Trio plays their fanfare once more)

Dora: You’re home now, Coquí! You’re home!

Boots: Hey, Dora! Now that Coquí's home, do you think he can sing?

Dora: Yes! Coquí, sing us your song!

(Coquí gets a little shy and waits a moment)

Dora: Go ahead, Coquí! You can do it!

(Coquí strums his guitar and he was so happy when he realized his voice was back to normal)

Coquí (loudly, happily): Coquí! Coquí!!

(Song starts)

Coquí: Coquí... Coquí...

Boots (in excitement): He's singing! He’s singing! (Coquí in the background: Coquí-quí-quí...)

Coquí: ...quí-quí! Coquí...

Boots: Listen, Dora! He’s all better now! (Coquí in the background: Coquí...)

Coquí: Coquí-quí-quí-quí...

Dora: He SURE IS, Boots! (Coquí in background: ..quí!)

(Coquí is dancing as he sings)

Coquí: Coquí... Coquí... Coquí-quí-quí-quí-quí!

(After singing the third time, Coquí's friends pop out of the tree on the right, one frog at a time. Coquí's family is already watching Coquí sing on the left tree)

(First Coquí friend pops out)

Boots: Ooh, look! (second friend pops out) It’s Coquí's friends!

(third frog friend pops up)

(Dora or Boots had to lift Coquí up to see his friends and sing with them)

Coquí: Coquí...

(Dora and Boots wait for the viewer's response/opinion)

Dora: I liked that too!

Boots: My favorite part was when we said "Ahhhh!" and the Echo Bush opened his mouth, and we jumped through to the other side!

Dora: My favorite part was when we got to hear Coquí sing! We couldn’t have brought Coquí home to his island without you! Thanks for helping!

(She and Boots wave goodbye to the viewer(s))
