The Secret of Atlantis is the 13th episode of Dora the Explorer from Season 6.

In production order, it's the 14th episode of Season 6.

This was supposed to be the 2nd episode of the "Enchanted Forest" trilogy (although it is in DVD and in production order), but it aired late and ended up being the 3rd and last.



Dora, Diego, Boots, and Unicornio must save Atlantis; a land that goes in the sea, because dragons and unicorns can't get along by their war. And only the unicorn king and the dragon king can become friends together forever to rise Atlantis once more.


  • Atlantis
  • We Can Be Friends


  • This is last episode where Diego is voiced by Brandon Zambrano (speaking) and Matt Hunter (singing) outside of Go, Diego, Go!. They were replaced by Jacob Medrano and Joaquin Mas, respectively, in Season 7.
  • Since Unicornio gave Owl the crown, he became an honorary king of the Enchanted Forest and he promised to do things that are nice and fair. But, for the next episode, his alignment is now changed from good, wily and peaceful to evil, violent and ruthless, as he's going to swipe the throne and claim it, ruin the fun and has the book of rules with the mini-owls; now taking Swiper's place as one of the next new antagonists that are being sneakier than him.
  • This is supposed to be the second of three chapters in the "Enchanted Forest" trilogy. In airing order and on the DVD, it is, but in production order, it's the third as it was pushed back to airing on January 30, 2012. Considering the events in the end of this episode are carried over to the next episode, they were aired out of order.
    • This is the only episode in the "Enchanted Forest" trilogy that Diego appears in.
  • The theme song is not featured in the DVD version of this episode. However, in TV airings, it was retitled to "Dora and Diego Save Atlantis" and has the normal opening sequence instead of the Enchanted Forest Trilogy opening sequence.
  • This is the 135th episode of the show.
  • The Travel Song is not sung in this episode.
  • Dora doesn't wear her regular clothes in this episode.
  • Dora doesn't use Backpack and Map in this episode.
    • However, Map makes a cameo appearance at the end of the episode when Dora, Boots, and Diego are singing We Did It!.
  • The blue cursor does not appear throughout the entire episode, except for when it clicks on Dora after We Did It!.
  • Boots is the only one that's not wearing any Atlantis clothes like Dora and Diego.
  • The Fiesta Trio, Swiper, Isa, Benny, Tico, Daisy, Alicia, Backpack, and Baby Jaguar do not appear in this episode.
  • There was no Picture Pop-Up Sequence in this episode.
