It's time for some big Dora firsts: the first visit to a barbershop with Boots, the twins' first birthday, the first time riding Pegaso, and more!
Why hello Dora. We meet again. I make no secret of my general disdain for your high-pitched squealing and your irritating, bacteria-invested pet monkey. You return with another four random episodes, and while I would rather do a nickel in Leavenworth than be forced to sit through an all-day marathon with Dora, I have no doubt the kids will swoon.
* "Dora's Hair-Raising Adventure"
It's haircut time as Boots departs to the barber for the first time. He ends up with a sexy coiffure from a suave barber who may or may not have been in Menudo at one time.
* "Happy Birthday Super Babies"
The super babies -- a.k.a. Dora's twin siblings -- score their first birthday and like any typical baby birthday, a Cake-snatching Bear threatens to snatch cake and possibly devour children.
* "Baby Winky Goes Home!"
During a Dora and Boots adventure, the duo stumble across a diminutive blue alien named Baby Winky. Their objective: get the little extraterrestrial back his spaceship, presumably before NASA arrives -- as they tend to do in kids alien movies -- and dismember him.
* "Dora's Pegaso Adventure"
I know we're dealing with a show where a monkey wears human footwear and a talking map guides a Spanish girl with a backpack to treasure, but Dora gets even nuttier with this episode, which finds our heroine riding a Pegasus made of stars to the moon.
The predictably bare-bones DVD: full frame, 2.0 stereo, no extras.
