Dora's Christmas Carol Adventure is a special hour-length episode of the Nick Jr. animated series Dora the Explorer, and the second Christmas episode. It was first released on DVD on November 3, 2009, and subsequently premiered on Nickelodeon on December 6, 2009, at 8pm ET/PT. It is written by co-creator Chris Gifford
Santa narrates the classic holiday story A Christmas Carol with a Dora twist. Swiper the Fox tries to swipe the Christmas tree star from Dora's Nochebuena party, which promptly lands him on Santa's naughty list. When Dora tries to ask the big guy in red for another chance for Swiper to get off the naughty list, he does agree - but only if Swiper learns the true meaning of Christmas.
A soundtrack to the special was also released; it was printed versions of the special in both English and Spanish.
