Dora Saves The Crystal Kingdom

A greedy king has stolen the color from the Crystal Kingdom and it’s Dora, Boots and their new friend Allie to the rescue in Nickelodeon’s new hour-long primetime TV special Dora the Explorer: “Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom,” premiering Sunday, Nov. 1, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT).


I actually had a chance to watch the episode with my children (400 times in a row) and it’s their new favorite show.

How can you go wrong with Dora and Boots?!

In “Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom,” Dora continues her magical storybook adventure from last fall (“Dora Saves the Snow Princess”), when the magic crystal that the Snow Princess gave her brings to life another character in her storybook – Allie of the Crystal Kingdom. A greedy king has stolen the crystals that give Allie’s kingdom color and Dora and Boots must help Allie locate the crystals and turn the pale gray kingdom back into a colorful wonderland before it’s too late. Along the way, the trio gain help from a British knight, a giant caterpillar and a magician who give Dora three gifts – a shield, butterfly wings and a magic wand – to aid in her journey. Using these presents, Dora attempts to defeat the greedy king and restore color to the kingdom.

Be sure to tune in on November 1st! The episode will encore on Nickelodeon on Monday, Nov. 2, at 9 a.m. (ET/PT) and on Nick Jr on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. (ET).
