Swiper's Favorite Things is the 17th episode of Dora the Explorer from season 6.

Characters present


Dora and Boots were about to have a sleepover when Swiper is in desperate need of their help.


Swiper is packing all of his favorite things for a sleepover at his Grandma’s House — his overnight trunk, his favorite puppy book and his very special funny bunny. Just as he is about to leave, a big wind gust comes in and blows everything away! Dora, Boots and Swiper journey to Crocodile Lake, through the Tangled Forest, and race to Strawberry Hill to get Swiper’s favorite things back.



  • This is the first episode in which Dora is voiced by Fátima Ptacek, who would later take over in the following season.
  • This is the 2nd episode where Swiper travels with Dora and Boots.
  • This episode features Swiper's grandmother.
  • This is the second instance where the Fiesta Trio lost their instruments, first being Dora's First Trip. However, they got found by the tangled trees.
  • This is the 138th episode of the show.
  • Starting with the next season, When Dora is speaking, her voice is low while it is high when singing (except for the Travel Song in Little Map).
  • Dora, Boots and Swiper's pajamas at end of episode matches their favorite stuffed animals
  • Dora and Boots don't sing the Travel Song in this episode by listing the places they are going and asking the question "Where are we going?", they instead sing about Swiper not swiping anything and for him promising that he does not.
  • This is the last episode Swiper is on his good side without any swiping even though he was almost going to but he still tries hard to control himself.
  • This is the second appearance of Swiper’s stuffed bunny, it first appeared in Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure.
  • This is also the second appearance of Boots' stuffed dinosaur, first being Boots' Cuddly Dinosaur.
  • This is the first episode were Dora's hair has a more full, realistic effect when she is running or when there is wind blowing. This will continue for the rest of the series. This effect was probably to be implied prior to this episode, but it can be slightly seen in the episode, Dora's Ballet Adventure.
  • This would be the last time that Dora would wear her orange shorts and white sneakers throughout the episode.
  • This is the first Season 6 episode to feature Crocodile Lake as a location.
  • Like First Day of School, the theme song features new vocals, however this version of the theme song was not used very frequently. This version of the theme song is featured in the video game, Nickelodeon Dance.
  • Coincidentally, Swiper lives on Blueberry Hill while his grandmother lives on Strawberry Hill, both live on hills with fruit in the bushes. However, Swiper lives in a burrow on Blueberry Hill and his grandmother lives in a house on Strawberry Hill.
