Dora and Boots hear three cries for "help!". They discover that their friends, Baby Jaguar, Isa, and Benny are in terrible danger. The duo must save their friends. But Boots, Baby Jaguar, and Isa panic every time they see something dangerous, so Dora teaches them how to take deep breaths (breathing in and out), and then think calmly on what they should do. Now take some deep breaths, nice and slow, now GO!
Dora looks for Boots using her binoculars Abuela gave her as a present. Boots was up in the tree and waves. Boots joins Dora. Suddenly, they heard a "meow, meow, meow". Dora heard someone in trouble. Dora looks through the binoculars and sees Baby Jaguar stuck in the tree. He was hanging by his itty bitty paws off the edge of the branch. But then, Dora heard someone else who is in trouble. Dora looks through the binoculars and saw that Isa fell into a big sand hole and she couldn't get out of there because it was too slippery. All of a sudden, Dora & Boots saw someone else in trouble. Dora and Boots both go "Uh-oh" and Dora looks through the binoculars and saw Benny and his hot air balloon. Benny's balloon had a hole in it, and it collapsed. Benny and his balloon and landed on top of the gooey geyser and there was sticky pink goo all around him. This has been a catastrophe.
Dora & Boots had to rescue Baby Jaguar, Isa and Benny and they weren't sure who to save first. Baby Jaguar meows out loud. Dora gasps and saw that the branch Baby jaguar was hanging on was about to break apart and was about to fall into the pickers and thorns. Dora screams "Ahhh!" and then she & Boots realized that Baby Jaguar should be rescued first. So, Dora & Boots had to run as fast as they can. Dora & Boots still couldn't make it to Baby Jaguar. Dora & Boots had to find a quick route to take so they can rescue Baby Jaguar. They had to find a secret shortcut. Boots panics and asks "How do we find the secret shortcut!?". Dora had to calm Boots down by taking a deep breath to relax.
Dora & Boots asked Map for assistance. Map tells them that the door to the secret shortcut was behind a bush. He says that Dora & Boots had to clap their hands to make it appear. Dora & Boots clapped their hands and soon the bushes split in half and a blue door opens up high. Dora & Boots use the secret shortcut passageway and it took them straight to Baby Jaguar.
Baby Jaguar gets scared and Dora saw that he was slipping. Dora and Boots panic again and knows that Baby Jaguar will fall into the pickers and thorns if they don't find a safe way to rescue him. Dora calms Boots down by taking a deep breath to relax. Dora had a plan on how they can rescue Baby Jaguar. There were 2 pictures. 1 picture had Dora & Boots catching Baby Jaguar with the net and the other picture had Dora & Boots getting the net out of Backpack. The first thing they had to do was get the net out of Backpack and then they had to catch Baby Jaguar with the net. Now that Dora & Boots had a plan, they had to do the plan in the correct order. Dora & Boots get the net out from Backpack and then Dora catches the net. Baby Jaguar couldn't hold on much longer. Dora & Boots had to run to Baby Jaguar. They held the net out and reached up and then as they branch broke, Dora and Boots caught Baby Jaguar in the net.
Baby Jaguar was saved, but Benny and Isa were still in trouble. Isa still can't get out of the big sand hole and Benny was still stuck on top of the gooey geyser. Dora, Boots and Baby Jaguar had to figure out who to save next. Suddenly, the sand ants started coming. Isa saw them and screams "Eeeek!". Dora, Boots and Baby Jaguar had to save Isa next. Dora, Boots and Baby Jaguar use a bicycle built for 2 with a basket at the front. Baby Jaguar rode in the basket, Boots sat in the front of the bike and Dora in sat the back. They wore bike helmets and pedaled to the big sand hole. The sand ants started to approach Isa. Baby Jaguar scratches the ground. Boots saw the sand ants as he panicked. Dora had to calm down Boots and Baby Jaguar. They took a deep breath and a deep breath out.
Dora had a plan on how they can rescue Isa who's stuck in the big sand hole. There were 3 pictures. 1 picture had Dora & Boots putting the ladder down the hole, a 2nd picture had Isa out of the big sand hole and a 3rd picture had Dora & Boots getting the ladder out of Backpack. Dora & Boots had to begin their plan by getting the ladder out of Backpack. The next thing Dora & Boots had to do is put the ladder down the hole and then Isa is out of the big sand hole. After putting the 2nd rescue plan in the correct order, Dora & Boots have to actually do the plan by getting the ladder from Backpack. Next they put the ladder down the hole. Isa had to climb up the ladder fast. Isa climbs faster up the ladder and in no time Isa was out of the big sand hole. The sand ants go "awww man!" and they grumble away into their big sand hole. Isa was saved just in time.
They were about to celebrate when they realized that someone was still in trouble. Dora shouts by saying "Benny!" and she looks through the binoculars and saw that the gooey geyser is getting ready to go ker-sploosh. Dora, Boots, Baby Jaguar and Isa had to rescue Benny super fast. They took a deep breath in and a deep breath out. After taking a deep breath, Dora, Boots, Baby Jaguar and Isa started running on foot but they needed to go faster. Suddenly, a rocket car speeds along. Tico was driving a supersonic rocket car. Dora, Boots and Isa told him "Para" for "stop". Tico stops his rocket car and Dora, Boots, Baby Jaguar and Isa climbed inside. Isa sat up front, Dora and Boots sat in the back with baby Jaguar in a car seat. Tico had to press down all 5 levers to start his rocket car. After counting to 5 in Spanish, the rocket car went super fast through the forest. It even zoomed past Swiper. Swiper spins like a tornado and gets dizzy. In no time, Tico drives Dora, Boots, Isa and Baby Jaguar to Benny who was still stuck on top of the gooey geyser.
Suddenly, the ground started to shake. Benny was starting to shake. The gooey geyser was getting ready to go kersploosh. They had to rescue Benny from the gooey geyser. Isa couldn't reach him because there was too much sticky goo in the way. Benny gets scared. Boots, Baby Jaguar and Isa got into a panic. Dora calmed them out by taking a deep breath in and a deep breath out. Dora had one more rescue plan on how they can rescue Benny the bull. There were 4 pictures which means it'll take 4 steps to save Benny. The 1st picture had Dora pumping Benny's balloon with the pump, The 2nd picture had Dora putting sticky tape on the hole in the balloon, the 3rd picture had Dora & Boots getting the sticky tape and pump from Backpack and the 4th picture had Benny and his balloon out of the gooey geyser. Dora & Boots had to start their rescue plan by getting the pump and sticky tape out of the Backpack. The next thing they had to do is tape up the hole in the balloon with sticky tape. The 3rd thing they had to do is pump up the balloon with lots of air with the pump. And finally Benny and his balloon will float up and out of the gooey geyser.
Benny knew that the gooey geyser is going to go kersploosh. Dora & Boots not only had to be faster than fast. They go rescue Benny super fast. So, Dora & Boots get out the sticky tape and the pump from the Backpack. Next they have to fix the hole in the Benny's balloon with the sticky tape. Dora quickly puts 2 pieces of sticky tape on the hole in the balloon forming an "X". Dora was about to pump with the balloon when they heard Swiper the fox approaching. Dora, Boots, Benny, Isa and Baby Jaguar stopped Swiper. But as Swiper walks away, his foot gets stuck in the goo. Swiper gets his foot out of the goo but makes tracks with his right foot as he walks away.
Isa noticed the gooey geyser is getting ready to go kersploosh. Benny suggested that Dora should pump it up the balloon now. Dora did so and as the balloon got filled up with lots of air, the balloon started to rise. Benny's balloon gets out of the goo and the gooey geyser went kersploosh. Benny was saved at last.
Map and Backpack sing their songs very fast instead of just normal speed.
In fact, most of the songs used in this episode play a lot faster because of tension and panic.
Map shows the secret shortcut and the Fiesta Trio clap their hands.
This is the second episode where Map shows a shortcut path, first being The Lost City.
Tico was seen driving a rocket car.
This is the first episode of Character Find from Season 3.
Tico's rocket car was so fast, it made Swiper spin around so much, he gets dizzy.
The end credits features a Character Find because explorer stars were not featured in this episode and Dora and Boots didn’t have time to catch them.
Even though Dora is scared, she does not freak out like the rest of her friends.
This is the first episode in which Baby Jaguar does the We Did It! dance.
There are no Explorer Stars in this episode. Dora and Boots have no time catching stars in this episode due to the state of emergency of the characters that need to be saved in this episode.
Backpack was called upon three times in this episode. Usually, it is only once or sometimes twice. However, Dora used her several times in the Season 1 episode Backpack and the Season 2 episode, Doctor Dora.
The We Did It! song was played three times, but the first two were cancelled by the next character calling for help because the mission was not fully complete.
There is no picture pop-up sequence in this episode.
Dora and Boots do not sing the Travel Song in this episode because everyone is in trouble and they need Dora and Boots' help right away. They never even had the time to sing it and even if they did, then they would be cut off by someone calling for help, similar to getting cut off trying to sing We Did It! because of all the trouble they are going through, this is technically a state of emergency episode where they need to get a move on helping everyone.
First Dora and Boots help Baby Jaguar from falling down off the tree, then they help Isa next getting out of the sandy ant hole, then they help Benny get out of the Gooey Geyser.
This is the second episode in which the Gooey Geyser is the last place Dora and Boots go as the destination, it was first the last place in the Season 2 episode Lost Squeaky.
This is the second episode in which Map does not stand of the top left of his picture map like he usually does. He instead stands on the bottom left. The first time he did that was in Beaches when he showed Dora and Boots which path they need to use to exit the sand dunes.
Dora and Boots never even noticed that they zoomed pass Swiper in Tico's rocket car because it went so fast.
Dora and Boots used everything inside of Backpack in this episode (except the soccer ball).
The songs are sung fast in this episode but Dora and Boots don't sing We Did It! fast, it's the only song that's not sung fast unlike the other songs.
It is unknown why Dora and Boots sing We Did It! after helping Baby Jaguar and Isa because it's always the last song they're supposed to sing only at the end of the episode instead of during the episode.
