  • Pablo and Tasha appear during the song, but they don't sing. Additionally, Milli and Geo don't sing; they only speak during the second "Aargh!" part.
  • Kiki, Shout, Max and his Grandma, as well as Plex don't appear on the actual ship, only in their own clips exclusively for themselves.
  • Marina (TFBB), Twist (TFBB), Mr. Grouper (BG's), Austin (B's), Ruby (M&R), Bot (TU), Muno (YGG!), Foofa (YGG!), Brobee (YGG!), Toodee (YGG!), and DJ Lance Rock (YGG!) are all absent.
  • Dora, Boots, and Diego have different voices for this song (since their old actors retired when this song was made)
  • A lot of the dancing was recycled from the original episode, such as when Dora and Diego high-fived one another while Boots put his hands up during the first "Ye he he!".


  • During a few instrumentals, Dora's pirate outfit looks slightly different. For example, the hat doesn't have the red on the outside in addition to the yellow, and there's more white than the original outfit.
