Characters present


Dora & Boots help soothe Red Rooster's throat and to get to the highest hill to wake up the sun.


Dora and Boots headed outside in their pajamas watching for Red Rooster to climb to the highest hill, but he appears in Dora's yard. Red Rooster explains that he had a sore throat and could not crow. Dora calls out to her mother, who heals Red Rooster's throat with a jar of honey. Later, Map says that they have to go across the noisy river, over the troll bridge to get to the highest hill. 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 crows like a rooster until he wakes up and gives them a ride. During the ride, they have to avoid the snakes and catch The stars. Afterwards, they head to the troll bridge, where the troll tells Dora, Boots, and Red Rooster to find all the loud things. They do so, letting 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 walke up the pifs. 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.
