Characters Present


Dora and Boots search for the pirate pigs' treasure.


Dora and Boots are on the hunt for the pirate pigs' treasure chest which is full of gold, chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting, and stickers. Map tells them that they have to go through the Lookout Tree, then across the Crocodile Lake, and then they should find Treasure Island. First, they go to the Lookout Tree and find the key. Then they have to go across Crocodile Lake on a pirate ship. At first, the crocodiles try to attack them, but Dora and Boots sing "Grande, grande, grande" to the crocodiles so that they will not attack their ship, which the crocodiles later sing. The ship heads for Treasure Island, and Dora and Boots got out the blue key from Backpack. Then, they raced up to the top to meet up with Pirate Pig and his pirate piggy crew. They had to be careful with the blue key because Swiper could swipe it. Suddenly, they see Swiper in a purple cape and he swipes the key and hides it, but they were able to find the blue key. Once they got back, they had to go to the treasure chest. Pirate Pig buried the chest under a yellow rock. But to get there, they had to hop on the 8 red rocks and then on 8 yellow rocks. After that, Pirate Pig lifts up the yellow rock and they find an "X". They dug up the treasure chest and open it up. Inside the treasure chest was gold and lots of other kinds of treasures.

  • When Dora and Boots are singing the Travel Song the first time, Boots is holding the blue treasure key but when they run down the hill and Boots doing cartwheels, he's not holding the blue treasure key but after that when Dora and Boots continue singing, he's holding the blue treasure key again.
  • When Dora and Boots ride on Pirate Parrot's boat across Crocodile Lake getting to Treasure Island, they don't wear any life jackets.
  • Dora uses the picture pop-up sequence the third time looking for Treasure Island next even though that Dora and Boots are already on Treasure Island anyway so there's no need for Dora asking the viewer where it is and the Blue Cursor clicking on it.
  • Swiper comes out as a pirate with all the other Pirate Piggies when Dora and Boots arrive with the blue treasure key, also, he doesn't make his whisking sound since he's already seen, Dora just mentions him saying that the Pirate Pig needs to be careful making sure that he doesn't swipe the blue treasure key in which he does.
