When Swiper tries to swipe the Christmas Star from Dora's Nochebuena Party, he lands on Santa's naughty list. When Dora tries to ask Santa for another chance for Swiper to get off the naughty list, he does agree - but only if Swiper learns the true meaning of Christmas by going into the past and the future.
