  • This episode marks the first time where the Fiesta Trio don't have any lines.
  • The storyboards of this episode were leaked in late 2022, but were later taken down.
    • Speaking of the storyboards, Map was shown to originally be coming back for the reboot. However, he was replaced by his female counterpart in the final version.
  • The first episode to feature Swiper's "You're too late!" line in the reboot series.
    • In the original storyboard, It was replaced with "It's Swiper time", and even at the end the episode Swiper was getting a Magic nut off a tree, until it falls on him.
  • This episode, along with Tres Leches Trouble, Wizzle Wozzle Woo, and Rainforest Ritmo, debuted on YouTube before the show's official launch on Paramount+. This was the fourth and final episode released.
  • This episode was accidentally uploaded to the official Dora YouTube Channel on October 12, 2023 (two days before Rainforest Ritmo was uploaded). It was eventually marked as unlisted before being officially released on October 21, 2023.
  • In the YouTube release, Asher Colton Spence and Quintún Muñoz are listed as Asher Spence and Quintún Muñoz-Rademacher, respectively.
  • The Sing Song Gate sings the following tongue twisters:
    • "Six slimy snails"
    • "Double bubble trouble"
    • "How many bags could a backpack pack if a backpack could pack bags?"
  • This episode features tongue twisters, similar to other twisters like Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers.
  • Dora, Boots, Benny, Isa, and Tico say, "Swiper, no...", but Swiper swipes the magic nut from them. However, like in the original episode, Bugga Bugga, they do not finish their sentence with "...swiping!".
  • This marks the first time in the reboot where Swiper swipes an item near the beginning, and the sixth time overall.


  • When Dora and her friends leave the cave and they arrive to the path of tricks and traps, when the camera moves away, it moves backwards. If you look closely at all the objects, some of them disappear or are visibly eliminated.
