When parents and children started seeing advance promos for Dora Rocks!, they may have wondered if the perennial fixation of toddlers was trying to pick up a tween audience with glitzy clothing and a microphone in her hand (plus a prime-time special airing dangerously close to bedtime). Luckily for fans, her 2013 special still has plenty of emphasis on education and cooperation. In the story, Benny's singalong party risks failure when he realizes he never sent out invitations. Dora and Boots must rush through a parade of obstacles -- the Noisy River and the Rumble Rocks -- in order to call everyone to the barn. Aside from the Dora theme and the singalong finale, other songs on the soundtrack include "Fantastic Gymnastics," "Pet the Animals," and "Busca los Cascarones." ~ John Bush
