Treasure Island is the 7th episode of Dora the Explorer from Season 1.



Dora and Boots go on a treasure hunt to find the pirate pigs' treasure.


The episode starts with Dora playing I spy. First she spied a monkey. The viewer found Boots. Then, Boots lands on Dora's head and she tickles him. Boots wants to play I spy too. He spied a Pirate Parrot. The viewer tells them that the parrot is on the tree branch. Pirate Parrot asks them if they were looking for the blue key. Dora and Boots asked Pirate Parrot what he means by that. He said that the blue key is the key to a big treasure chest. They wondered what’s in the chest, and Pirate Parrot said that it is definitely filled with gold. There is also toys, beads, chocolate cupcakes with pink icing, and stickers. First, they have to find the blue key that opens the treasure chest. After they found it, they asked Map where the treasure is. He tells them that it is at Treasure Island. But first, they have to go through the Lookout Tree, then across the Crocodile Lake, and then they should be able to find Treasure Island. First, they go to the Lookout Tree. Once they went past it they have to go across the icky sticky mud. To get across, they use a plank and walk very carefully. When they got to Crocodile Lake, Pirate Parrot offered them a ride on a pirate ship. At first, the crocodiles try to attack them, but Dora, Boots and Pirate Parrot 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 told them that he buried the chest under one of the yellow stones. But to get there, they had to hop on the 8 red stone and then on 8 yellow stones. After that, Pirate Pig lifts up the yellow stone and they find an "X". They dug up a hole and sure enough, they found the treasure chest and they open it up. Inside the treasure chest was gold and lots of other kinds of treasures.
