Señor Tucán is one of Dora and Boots' good friends. He is a toucan who only speaks in Spanish. Dora usually needs to translate what he says for Boots and the viewers. His name is often shortened to Sr. Tucán or just el Señor.

He is voiced by Leslie Valdes, the husband of the series' co-creator Valerie Walsh Valdes.


Señor Tucán is a colorful tropical bird. His feathers are mostly blue, with a patch of yellow on his back. The top of his head is purple, his neck is yellow, and he has red rings around his eyes, back, and torso. He has yellow talons and a long, orange and yellow beak. He has red eyebrows that float above his face. When he's seen from the side, only one eyebrow is visible. On most promo art, his outlines are purple or dark blue.


Señor Tucan is a very helpful bird who is always happy to assist Dora and Boots on their adventures. He has a long beak that can pick things up with ease.

In some dubs, such as Dora la Exploradora, Señor Tucán's name is changed to "Mister Toucan" and he only speaks in English.
