[They follow the balloon as the music plays, then it disappears behind the clouds and the music fades]

Boots: We gotta find out where the balloon is going!

Dora: Who do we ask for help, when we don’t know which way to go? (kid's name)?

Boots: The Map! The Map!

[They enter the Nutty Forest that leads to Cupcake Mountain]

(Party blower sound from distance)

Boots: Hey, Dora! Did you hear that?

(Party blower sound again)

[The party blower sound is coming from Tico the Squirrel]

Dora: Who’s making that sound? (kid's name)?

Both: Tico!

(party blower sound)

Boots: That’s Tico with his party blower!

Dora: Let’s go ask Tico if it’s his birthday!

[They searched and searched for Tico, but they couldn’t find him anywhere]

Boots: I don’t see Tico!

Dora: Tico is hiding! We can find him if we listen for his party blower.

(Marimba sound in the bush)

(Tico‘s party blower in the tree)

(Guiro sound in the rock)

(Conch horn in the flower bush)

Dora: Is Tico behind the rock?

(Cursor clicks it)

[It was not, it was actually a capybara playing the guiro.]

Boots: That’s not Tico!

(Marimba, party blower, and conch horn sounds again)

Dora: Where’s Tico? (kid's name)?

(Cursor clicks the tree)

[They checked, and he was in the tree]

Dora: You found him!

(Tico chuckling)

[The armadillo plays the marimba, and the anteater plays the conch horn)

(All laughing)

Both: Hola, Tico!

Tico: Hola, Dora! Hola, Boots! (Hi, Dora! Hi, Boots!)

[Tico slides down the tree]

Boots: Dora, ask Tico if it’s his birthday!

Dora: ¿Tico, es tu cumpleaños? (Tico, is it your birthday?)

Tico: No, no es mi cumpleaños (No, it’s not my birthday?)

Dora: He said it’s not his birthday. So it’s not: Dora’s, or Map’s, or Backpack’s, or Boots’ or Tico’s birthday. I wonder whose birthday it is. Let’s follow the birthday balloon and find out!

[Birthday balloon flies above them, they follow it to the Cupcake Mountain.]

[Just then, they saw 3 elevators]

Dora: Do you see anything that can take us up to the top of the mountain? (Kid's name)?

Dora: Yeah, those elevators can take us to the top of the mountain!

[They got in, but nothing happens.]
