!!Tropes:
* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: The premiere ends with a segment like this, based on the premiere's theme of being helpful and working together. Boots makes a special appearance during this segment. Whether or not this is to happen OnceAnEpisode remains to be seen.
* AnimatedSeries
* TheArtifact: Almost nothing from the original Dora is retained in this series.
* {{Balloonacy}}: Happens in the premiere, with a hot air ballon parade float.
* BilingualBonus
* [[BlondeBrunetteRedhead Blonde, Brunettes, Redhead]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Yep. They still do it.
* ContinuityNod: Dora has memories of her childhood with Boots while talking about maps.
