The Backpack Parade is the 2nd episode of Dora the Explorer from Season 5.



Backpack gears up for a special parade, in which she's going to lead with her own song. However, her allergies make her sneeze, causing her to drop all her items. Dora and Boots help her retrieve all her belongings, and, with their friend Luis, arrive at the parade on time.

  3. Backpack Parade


  • This is the first appearance of Dora's friend Luis.
  • Backpack did her segment once and that's it, but she sneezed when she sung her Backpack song. In other times, she sneezed the stuff out for the viewer to click on what's needed.
  • Swiper didn’t want to swipe Dora and Boots' backpacks even though it looked like he did, he just wanted one for the parade (that looks like a cowboy). Luckily, Backpack had such backpack for him.
  • This is the 103rd episode of the show.
  • Boots' backpack is shaped like a dinosaur.
    • It is possible that Boots likes dinosaurs since he has a stuffed cuddly dinosaur and a dinosaur-shaped backpack.
  • It's revealed that Backpack is allergic to confetti (which is why she's sneezing)
  • Isa and Benny will no longer be voiced by Jake Burbage and Ashley Fleming from now on. Instead, Benny is now voiced by Matt Gumley and Isa will now be voiced by Lenique Vincent.
  • Backpack got an opportunity to sing her signature song at the parade with all of her friends, including Swiper.
  • Backpack got to tell her favorite part at the end of the episode.
  • Dora and Boots sing the original Travel Song in the original version but when they sing it the second time, they don't say the places they're going just like they did the first time and as they're finishing it, they don't laugh and spin around holding each other's hands, instead Backpack is always sneezing her things out of her (due to confetti) so Dora and Boots catch them and put them back inside her.
  • Luis' Backpack is a bit similar to Diego's Rescue Pack.
  • The speaker at the Backpack Parade is the same kind of speaker (red and purple) from Choo-Choo! and Baseball Boots.
