The Grumpy Old Troll Gets Married is the 5th episode of Dora the Explorer from Season 6.



Today, the Grumpy Old Troll is getting married to his best friend from a long time, Petunia, and Dora and Boots are in the wedding as the flower girl and ring bearer, but they have to receive the missing wedding rings.


The Grumpy Old Troll is getting married to his best friend, Petunia, and Dora and Boots are in the wedding as the flower girl and ring bearer! But first, they have to retrieve the wedding rings that Grumpy Old Troll forgot about. The Grumpy Old Troll tells them that the wedding rings are at his grandma’s house. Map says that to get to Grandma Troll’s house that they have to get by the wedding bells and the flowery garden. Along the way the rainforest animals help the Grumpy Old Troll get dressed for the wedding. And Swiper tried to swipe the Grumpy Old Troll’s Petunia flowers which failed. So on the bright side, the Grumpy Old Troll invites Swiper to the wedding and he will see them later and promised not to swipe anything before the wedding starts. The wedding bells won’t let the three get past them and the only way they’ll let them through is to count how many times they ring. They get it right and they continue their journey to Grandma Troll’s house. They come to the flowery garden to find purple flowers for Petunia’s bouquet. Soon they arrive at Grandma Troll’s house and the Grumpy Old Troll asks his grandma where the wedding rings are and she kept them in a secret place. They find the rings and Petunia is on flying horses to come get Dora, Boots, the Grumpy Old Troll and his grandma to the wedding ceremony. With the Big Red Chicken officiating, the trolls put the rings on. Then, as they officially become husband and wife, there are fireworks in the sky.

  • Dora and Boots don't sing the Travel Song in this episode, they never had the time to sing it because they're in a hurry getting the wedding rings that the Grumpy Old Troll forgot at his grandma's house.
