Dragon TalesSpring 2000 Television
Ages: 3 - 7 yrs.
Producer: Children Television Workshop
Review:The catchy bongo sound urging “let’s all go to dragon land” is a great opener for this animated series. With the help of Max and Emmy, we learn that preconceived notions about other creatures can be very wrong, helping a friend overcome his fear of the dark in the forest, feels great; and getting baby dragon Kiki to take her nap, isn’t easy. Quetzal, the old Spanish-speaking dragon from Mexico is a charming and wise guide to each episode. Just hearing the opening song will make you and your kids get up and dance.
