Dora & Boots help soothe Red Rooster's throat and get to the highest hill to wake up the sun.
Dora and Boots headed outside in their pajamas to watch Red Rooster climb to the top of the highest hill. However, he actually appears in Dora's yard instead, so she sees him and gasps. Red Rooster explains that he had a sore throat and could not crow. Dora calls out to her mother to tell her that Red Rooster's throat is sore and could not crow to wake up the sun. Mamí explains that if the sun keeps sleeping it would be dark all day. So they get a jar of honey out of Backpack. Now, Dora, Boots, and Red Rooster have to go to the highest hill to wake up the sun. The problem is they do not know how to get there. So they ask Map for assistance. Map says that they have to go across the noisy river, over the troll bridge to get to the highest hill. He also tells them not to forget about star catching along the way. En route to the noisy river, they crow like roosters to wake up the frogs. At the Noisy River, they saw El Bote sleeping, so they crow like a rooster until he wakes up and gives them a ride. Shortly before putting their life jackets on, they hear Swiper. Swiper will try to swipe their life jackets, so Dora, Boots and Red Rooster have to say "Swiper, No Swiping!" three times. During the boat ride, Dora, Boots and Red Rooster have to avoid the snakes. After that, they head to the troll bridge Along the way, they catch the stars. Afterwards, they make it to the troll bridge, where the troll tells Dora, Boots, and Red Rooster to find all the loud things. Out of the four things: A drum, a siren, a feather, and radio, three of them were loud and a feature is quiet. After that, he lets Dora, Boots, and Red Rooster over his bridge. After crossing the troll bridge, Dora, Boots and Red Rooster saw 5 pigs in their pajamas and were sleeping in their way and crow to wake up the pigs. The pigs wonder where the sun is, and Boots says that he Dora, and Red Rooster are on their way to wake up the sun right now, and Red Rooster is late. Dora, Boots, and Red Rooster then reach the highest hill. They raise the loud-o-meter, with a little help from Noisy Star, and wake up the sun, causing everyone to wake up.

This episode shows the characters in their pajamas. This would happen again in the episode Catch the Babies.
This is the first episode to feature Map's standard season 3 onwards song with him singing "I'm the Map" four times followed by the Fiesta Trio singing "He's the Map" four times. This doesn't happen again till Dora Saves the Mermaids.
This is the 75th episode of the show.
Dora does not say "¡Hola, soy Dora!", she instead says "¡Buenos días!". Also, Boots does not say "And I'm Boots!" to greet the viewer after Dora, he instead says "Good morning!".
In this episode, when Dora and Boots sing the Travel Song, they don't ask "Where are we going" or the last place, they instead say "What are we gonna do" and don't clap 3 times before answering "Cock-a-doodle-doo", just like in Season 1.
This is the last episode to use the 4-second Nick Jr. Productions logo variant.
When Dora and Boots are singing the Travel Song, Dora doesn't say her own line "I know that we can do it", Red Rooster says that line instead, and as they're finishing it, they don't spin around and jump up in the air yelling "cock a doodle doo", they just walk, laugh and say that line while flapping their arms instead, they also don't say the place they're going either, they say "cock a doodle doo".
