I buy and watch these dragon episodes for my 9 year old niece...I keep telling myself. She loves this stuff. This DVD consists of 4 TV episodes which deal with the growing pains of having a wild animal becoming domesticated. There are universal truths about pets which would apply to dogs etc. should your family have one and you are trying to teach the munchkin that animals do what is natural to them. The trick is to control them without harming them. In these episodes minor characters are developed and play larger roles.
What I found most interesting was the extra feature. They are making a live stage performance of the film, including flying, underwater scenes, and fire breathing dragons. And to think I was fascinated by "It's a Small World" in 1964.
The short features are limited to 22 minute episodes, which is not enough time to tell a great tale, but long enough to tell an interesting one.
