Nick US' Dora takes a trip down memory lane

MUMBAI: Nick US has announced that on its show Dora The Explorer, preschoolers will join Dora on her first adventure ever and discover how she met her best friend Boots on
a new episode called Dora's First Trip.

The special flashback episode will premiere on 7 April. On Dora's First Trip, at the dinner table, Dora tells her parents, grandma and her cousins Diego and Daisy the story of her very first adventure through the forest. Without the help of her trusty backpack, Dora embarks on her earliest trip with a simple messenger bag -- her first explorer kit from her parents. She travels through the Nutty Forest and across the Rio Grande to return the Fiesta Trio's lost instruments so they can play for the cranky Queen Bee.

Along the way, Dora meets her sidekick Boots and they soon befriend Tico, Isa and Benny. Dora continues her journey with her new pals, and they travel together by car, boat and airplane until they finally return the instruments to the musical trio. Before long, they learn that they must watch out for that sneaky fox, Swiper.

On 11 April, Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment will release a DVD and VHS Dora's First Trip, which will feature the title episode in addition to three other Dora the Explorer adventures. The DVD will also feature a music video, Best Friends.
