The Bobo's Mother's Day is the 3rd episode of Go, Diego, Go! from Season 3. In production order, it's the 16th episode of Season 3.



It's Mother's Day in the rainforest and everyone is celebrating, but the Bobos don't have a present for their mom. It is up for Diego and the viewers to help!


Spider Monkey Facts[]

  • Spider monkeys live in the rainforest, not the ocean.
  • Spider monkeys can climb up trees. They cannot fly like airplanes due to gravity and a lack of wings.
  • Spider monkeys hang from their tails, not their noses.
  • Spider monkeys eat bananas, not jellyfish because they can sting you, causing death.

Animals found by Click[]

  • Pygmy marmoset (awake)
  • Howler monkey (awake)
  • Mommy Bobo (still asleep)


  • The book "Be Good, Bobos!" is based on this episode.
  • This is the first appearance of Diego and Alicia's big sister Daisy, so viewers see all of Diego's family together for the first time.
  • Dora does not appear or go to the Mother's Day party in this episode.
  • Diego does not use Rescue Pack in this episode.
  • The Bobos are on their good side in this episode.
  • Diego sings the "Una Adventura" song in this episode since there is no rescue.
  • 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.".
  • Starting with this episode, the Red-Eyed Tree Frogs are both voiced by Keeler Sandhaus instead of Constanza Sperakis.
    • Because of this, there is a change on how they croak: they say "Ruk-ruk!" instead of "Ribbit-ribbit!", just like in Rainforest Rhapsody.
  • This is the episode where Diego says "Clean up time!" just like his cousin Dora said in Dora Saves the Mermaids.
  • This episode marks Mama Jaguar's final appearance in the series.
  • A fireworks sound effect is heard when saying "Happy Mother's Day!".
  • This episode premiered just 2 days before Mother's Day 2008 (which way May 11 of that year)
    • On top of that, it premiered exactly on Mother's Day 2008 on Noggin.
  • This could be Diego's version of El Día De Las Madres (both are Mother's Day specials).
    • Additionally, it could also be the show's version of Swiper the Explorer since they both have antagonists on their good side throughout an adventure (the Bobos travel with Diego on their good side, just like Swiper, who traveled with Dora and Boots on his good side in second said episode).
    • It is also the show's version of Swiper's Favorite Things, since both episodes have the antagonists (Swiper and the Bobos) trying to behave so that their older relatives (Grandma Fox and Mommy Bobo) don't get mad at them.
  • This episode premiered on Noggin exactly on Mothers Day 2008.
  • Just like "Sammy's Valentine", this episode doesn't appear on a single Go, Diego, Go! DVD. It (along with the episode Grandma's House, which already has another DVD release, that being Puppy Power!) can only be seen on the Nickelodeon: Celebrate Family DVD.
  • The song "Swing Like A Monkey" will later be sung by Dora in the episode Check Up Day over on Dora the Explorer.
  • Although it premiered in 2008 on Nickelodeon and Noggin and 2009 on DVD, it was made in 2007 according to the credits.


  • In this episode, the Red-Eyed Tree Frogs did not say "Ribbit-ribbit!" when they croak, they instead say "Ruk-ruk!". This also occurred in Rainforest Rhapsody.
  • Daisy celebrated her 15th birthday in the Dora the Explorer episode "Daisy, La Quinceañera," which aired on October 1, 2004 (produced sometime in 2003). Diego states that Daisy is home from college in this episode which aired on May 9, 2008 (produced sometime in 2007). That would make Daisy 18 and no child prodigy.
    • However, since the episode took place in 2005-2006, it is possible that Daisy did return from college as told by Diego.
