Puffin Fish Adventure is the 4th episode of Go, Diego, Go! from Season 4.

In production order, however, it's the 1st episode of Season 4, as well as the debut of the new cast (e.g. Diego is now voiced Brandon Zambrano, etc.).



Today, Diego is in Greenland helping babysit the baby puffins. The Mommy and Daddy Puffins still haven't returned with the babies' food for snack time! It's Diego to the rescue to find fish for the babies to eat.

Puffin Facts[]

  • Puffins move on land by waddling, not running super fast like roadrunners and ostriches.
  • Baby puffins are afraid of seagulls and orca whales, not butterflies.
  • Puffins swim by flapping their wings like flying under the water, it's also a great way to escape a predator like an orca, not shaking their tail feathers.
  • Puffins can fly high into the air but only big puffins, baby puffins can't swim and fly since they don't have their swimming feathers nor can fly well yet.
  • Puffins sometimes follow other animals like humpback whales to look for fish.

Episode Events[]

  • Diego took the Puffy and the baby puffins to a new home with lots of fish, not lots of flowers.

Things found by Click[]

  • Seashells
  • Crabs
  • Fish


We Wish We Had Some Fish!


  • This episode shows Click in a new version.
  • Diego sings the "Una Adventura" song in this episode.
  • Diego doesn't say "Excelente!", he instead says "Yay!"
  • Diego doesn't say "We solved the puzzle". he instead says "We've finished the puzzle".
  • Diego's father says "See you soon!" at the end.
  • If one listens closely, one of the baby puffins (with the exception of the littlest puffin) is voiced by Caitlin Sanchez, Dora's voice actress at the time (from Seasons 5-6 of Dora the Explorer).
  • Despite taking place in the Americas (like back in Canada), the Bobo Brothers do not appear in this episode.
  • Going by production order after Dora's Birthday Adventure in general:
    • This is the first episode of Season 4.
    • Starting with this episode, Diego would be traveling internationally frequently. He would start the episode by saying which place or country he is in before the actual story starts.
    • Starting with this episode, Diego is now voiced by Brandon Zambrano instead of Jake T. Austin. Meanwhile, Click is still voiced by Rosie Perez and Diego's Father is still voiced by Sebastian Arcelus.
      • However, Jake T. Austin's voice still remains in the opening sequence when Diego yells, "Wheeeeee!".
    • Starting with this episode, Jed Becker served as The Music Composer and Director.
    • This is the first time Diego wears his new outfit. He now wears a short-sleeved red sweatshirt with an orange top underneath, black cargos, white socks, and black and red sneakers.
      • His original outfit can still be seen in the opening sequence and during flashbacks in Fiercest Animals.
    • This episode and Diego Rescues Prince Vicuña are the only episodes this season where Click takes a picture after finding the animal in trouble.
      • If one goes by airing order, this would be the only Season 4 and said episode would be the only Season 5 episode where this happens.
    • This episode premiered on Nick Jr. the same day as A Crown for King Juan el Bobo from the main show.
    • When Click says, "No!" the audio is taken from Rescue of the Red-Eyed Tree Frogs! one time and An Underwater Mystery the other.
