Checking where to go next.png

The Picture Pop-Up Sequence is the squares with pictures of the locations to go that pop up underneath Dora (and sometimes Boots). In the sequence, Dora would say the places while pointing to each square, and then (season 1 and most of season 2) review what to do, and then ask "So next comes...?" the second and third time, or (season 3 onwards) ask where they go first the first time and where they go next the second and third time.

Trivia

  • In Season 1 and most of Season 2, Dora would list all the places after all the squares pop up, and review what they had to do the first time, and then ask "So next comes" the second and third time.
  • In late season 2 and season 3 onwards, Dora would list the places as each individual picture pops up, and then she would ask "Where do we go first?" the first time and "Where do we go next?" the second and third time.
  • In season 4, the picture pop-up sequence is usually not featured that often. Instead, Dora would check Map multiple times. He would then track her progress by putting in a red checkmark on each place she passed (This got carried over to Dora from Dora Saves the Mermaids onwards).
  • Click! and Hide and Go Seek are the only episodes where Dora lists each individual place as it pops up but still reviews what they have to do.
  • Pinto, the Pony Express is the first time Boots stands behind the picture pop-up sequence with Dora.
    • Also, Best Friends is the only episode where he stands behind the picture pop-up sequence by himself.
  • In the Season 4 episode Dora Saves the Mermaids/Season 5 onwards, Dora would do the same thing from season 3, except now she is the one that puts checkmarks on each place she has passed instead of Map.
  • Dora's Pirate Adventure is the only episode where the entire cast (Dora, Boots, Benny, Isa, Tico, Diego, and Baby Jaguar) stands behind the picture pop-up sequence, but it was only the third time, as the first and second times had Dora by herself as usual.
  • There are two Go, Diego, Go! episodes to feature the picture pop up sequence: Diego and Dora Help Baby Monarch Get to the Festival and Save the Giant Tortoises. However, unlike Dora the Explorer episodes, the picture pop-up sequence was used only once, and it was before the first place (in both episodes).
  • In the Season 3 episode The Super Silly Fiesta, the three squares popped up above the screen, but then Dora slides them down to the bottom and lists all the places, but still says "Where do we go next?".
    • This occurred during the third picture pop-up sequence.
  • Lost Map is the first episode not to feature this sequence. Instead, Dora and Boots use the replacement map they made as their guide. The first time, before going to the first location, Dora draws out the locations one by one after reviewing each place like Map does. After that, she talks like Map by listing the places once and then three times with the viewer. After passing the first and second places, they still use their replacement map to figure out where to go next. This most likely paves the way to Season 4, where they checked Map multiple times. However, unlike Season 4 onwards, the red checkmarks were not placed after passing the places.
  • Rescue, Rescue, Rescue! is the second episode not to feature this sequence.
  • Best Friends is the first and only episode featuring two squares instead of three because Dora and Boots had to get pass one location to meet each other at the same place (Dora had to get through a gate and Boots had to get past a bunch of crabs).
  • Dora's World Adventure! is the first episode featuring four squares in this sequence instead of the usual three.
  • Dora in Troll Land is the only episode to have five squares instead of three.
  • There were a couple changes in the Picture Pop-Up Sequence in Season 7.
    • Each square has a purple outline.
    • Instead of the pictures "popping up", Dora taps the screen to reveal the pictures of the places according to the episode.
      • This is apparently the return of where, after the pictures are revealed, Dora says each place, just like in Season 1 and most of Season 2.
  • In a few episodes (mainly Seasons 1 and 2), the background during the second picture pop-up sequence is the exact same one from the first time.
