Dora’s going to get the party started in a half-hour special on Jan. 14 (7 pm ET/PT). In “Dora Rocks!”, Benny is having a sing-along party, but he forgot to send out the invitations. Dora and Boots must get the microphone to Benny’s Barn to call their friends to the party! They rush down the Noisy River, create a rocky avalanche to cross the Rumble Rocks, and arrive at Benny’s Barn to call everyone to the barn. Then a dolled up Dora sings a special song with all her friends.

Check out the clip of that song below:

To my chagrin, Backpack just sings “Backpack, Backpack.”

Emmy award-winning Dora the Explorer currently reaches more preschoolers than any other show on television (12.4 million), and averages a 4.9/661,000 K2-5 and 1.5 million total viewers.
