  • When Dora jumps into the book, she is not seen in her casual garments.
  • During We Did It!, following the second verse, Boots sings the second "We did it!", but Dora's mouth moves instead.
  • The voice actors of Hoon, Balan and Pech are not listed in the credits, which means that it is unknown who voiced them.
  • On international airings of the episode, it has the Seasons 3-4 opening sequence with the Explorer Stars and the Star Pocket with the Seasons 5-6 intro's audio playing, despite the Explorer Stars being completely abandoned and the Star Pocket not appearing anymore as of this season. However, the Nickelodeon splat logo that was used on international prints of this season (replacing the butterfly) is still present.
