Three Little Condors is the 6th episode of Go, Diego, Go! from Season 1, both in airing and production order.



Diego and Alicia need to help three little condors find their Mami and Papi Condor before the sun goes down! Help the rescue team go up Condor Mountain before nightfall!


Facts about condors learned[]

  • Condors live on mountains (especially in the Andes), not in lakes because this isn't fitting and they can't swim, therefore being one of the animals to drown easily.
  • Condors fly in the daytime, not in the nighttime since it's too dark and they're diurnal.
  • Condors have good eyesight, so they don't need glasses like some humans do.
  • Condors are afraid of pumas, not domestic chickens.
  • Condors can lift the sun into the sky (but not in real life).
  • Male condors have white eyes while female condors have red eyes, which proves that Uno the brave and Tres the afraid are males and Dos the friendly is the only female of the three condors.

This can be found on two DVD titles: Wolf Pup Rescue and Let's Learn 123s.


  • When Rescue Pack transforms into a bicycle, he refers to it as "bike" in this episode.
    • This is because "bike" sounds simpler than "bicycle".
  • This episode premiered on the same day as Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie was released on VHS and DVD.
  • Baby Jaguar and the Bobo Brothers don't appear in this episode.
  • This is the first episode where the Bobos don't appear.
  • This episode disappears as Alicia says "Go, Diego, go!".
  • This is the first time "Vuela" is sung.
  • This episode was released on Nickelodeon: Let's Learn 123s DVD.
  • During the Una Adventura song, the monkeys are mirrored when they sang the first "Go, Diego, go!".
  • One of the actors for the condors, Aiden Pompey, is best known as the voice of Quincy on Playhouse Disney's Little Einsteins.
  • This is the only episode Diego doesn't zip line after leaving the animal rescue center. He and Alicia drive the Rescue Car instead.
  • This marks the first time Diego and Alicia travel together, as well as the first episode in which Alicia sings Una Adventura. Her first time singing Al Rescate will be in A Booboo on the Pygmy Marmoset.
  • Diego and Alicia don't say "Excelente", they instead say "Yay!".
  • The title of this episode is similar to the main show's episode "Three Little Piggies".
  • Coincidentally, both are sixth episodes of their first seasons (going by airing order, while in production order, said episode would be the eighth).
  • The Chickens animation and background is recycled from The Mommy Macaw.
  • When the ride is bumpy, the basket flies in the air and disappears, but when the condors are rescued, it means that the basket is gone and is not needed anymore. And also, when the car is stuck, it's not used to get to the mountain. A different way for the condors to get to the mountain besides getting to it by car is that they need to run and get away from hostile pumas so that they don't get hurt by them.
  • At the end of this episode, "Rescue complete!" and "You are a great animal rescuer!" are never said. Instead, "Adventure complete!" is said by Alicia and "You are great at helping animals!" is said by Diego.


  • As an eleven-year-old, Alicia should not be driving a car. In real life, one has to be at least 16 years old to drive cars (although here it does not apply due to cartoon logic).
  • In real life, condors do not lift the sun to the sky.
