    Trivia (31)

    • The Wagon had a Seat belt

    • When the first pig was in the wagon and Dora and Boots were singing they were on the road, the camera zoomed in and out and when it zoomed out the road was gone.

    • When Dora and Boots told Tico to open the gate, Tico threw away the bucket of chicken feed and pushed the gate open. But after the pig in the wagon stopped and Dora and Boots thanked Tico, you could see bucket full again and now on their side of the gate when Tico picked it up to continue on feeding the chickens.

    • Boots' surprise party was supposed to be a surprise, yet in the first part of the episode. Dora actually told Boots about the surprise party, blowing the surprise.

    • When Dora showed Boots' birthday cake, Boots poked on top of it to taste the frosting. Yet when they arrived in the party house (Dora's House), the hole in the cake is gone.

    • We are shown in this episode that the first item that Dora ever took out of her backpack was a bandage for Boots' hurt leg.
