Characters present


Dora and Boots must put a star back into the sky after a runaway comet accidentally knocks her out.


Dora and Boots were outside at night looking at the moon and next the moon was Little Star who happened to be the first star in the sky. As they look through a telescope to see them, Dora and Boots make a wish on the star, but before they could finish, a comet knocks Little Star out of the sky. Dora and Boots later find her crying and sing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Now, Little Star had to get back into the sky with the moon. Dora and Boots decided to check Map and he said that the moon is above a tall mountain. They had to cross a troll bridge and Tico's Treehouse to get to the tall mountain. As Dora, Boots and Little Star approach the troll bridge, they had to count stars. At first, they count ten stars, but Little Star was also counted. As Dora, Boots and Little Star made it to Tico's treehouse, Swiper appears and throws Little Star up the tree, but Tico gets her back down. They later got up to the top of the Tall Mountain and Dora and Boots threw Little Star back up into the night sky with the moon. The episode ends with Dora, Boots and their friends making their wishes on the star.
