The Tale of the Unicorn King (or simply "Tale of the Unicorn King") is the 10th episode of Dora the Explorer from Season 6, as well as the 1st episode of the "Enchanted Forest" trilogy.

In production order, it's the 13th episode of Season 6.



On the Spring Shower, Unicornio has been chosen to be the king of the enchanted forest after the previous one had died with honor, so Dora and Boots help Unicornio get to his castle and complete his tasks of what he's good at.

  • This is the first of the three chapters in the "Enchanted Forest" trilogy.
  • This is also the only chapter in the "Enchanted Forest" trilogy where Dora wears her casual outfit.
  • Owl is voiced by guest star Jason Alexander, best known for playing George Costanza on the sitcom Seinfeld and Hugo the Gargoyle in Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
  • The Travel Song is replaced by the new song, Stomp Your Feet.
  • Benny, Isa, Tico, and Swiper don't appear in this episode.
  • Backpack had nothing but round things in this episode. Also, it is unknown how she manages to carry a giant pizza.
  • This episode premiered exactly 8 years after The Fix-it Machine.
  • When Unicornio told Boots that Dragons and Unicorns don't get along, this will foreshadow to the next Enchanted Forest Adventure.
  • This Enchanted Forest story came directly after the events of Unicornio's debut in the Season 5 episode, Isa's Unicorn Flowers.
  • This is the third episode to feature Dragon Mountain, although with, once again, a different look, following Star Catcher and Super Babies' Dream Adventure.
    • It also appeared in the book title "Dora's Book of Manners".
    • Coincidentally, it was the second location in all three episodes and said book.
  • In the YouTube version, the episode opens and closes Season 1-4 style, and as a result, music can be heard before the episode begins. When it cuts to the credits, they are even faster than most episodes on YouTube. The music fades out before the Nickelodeon logo and its theme, whooshing to the left at the end.
