Overview

In the episodes, the children transport themselves to Dragon Land through the use of a magical scale given to them by a musical Dragon with the line "I wish, I wish with all my heart to fly with dragons in a land apart" at the beginning of each episode. They are then transported back to their world by using the same refrain and the phrase "I wish, I wish to use this rhyme to go back home until next time." For other uses, see Music (disambiguation). ...


In Dragon Land, the children meet up with their Dragon friends - Cassie, Ord, Zak and Wheezie (the latter two being two halves of a two-headed dragon) - and their bilingual teacher, Quetzal, as they learn valuable life lessons, aided by the fact that the children are inexperienced with the magical flora and fauna of Dragon Land. The term bilingualism (from bi meaning two and lingua meaning language) can refer to rather different phenomena. ... Simplified schematic of an islands flora - all its plant species, highlighted in boxes. ... Fauna is a collective term for animal life of any particular region or time. ...


Show structure

The series mixes in Spanish language elements to promote a bilingual experience for the audience. By incorporating parts of another language, the show appeals to a wider audience, as well as providing a new learning experience for children. This article is about the international language known as Spanish. ... The term multilingualism can refer to rather different phenomena. ...


Each show is divided into three segments: the first story, a song known as a "DragonTune", and the second story. Each story is approximately 10-12 minutes long.


Characters

Max

Max is a rambunctious and independent six-year-old. He's a bundle of energy with a big smile and is prone to sudden bouts of silliness. Despite being the smallest and youngest of the group, Max is determined to keep up in a big way. "I'm big!", he insists, ready to jump over the stream just like the rest of the crew. However, his small size does not allow him to succeed in all of his adventures. When it comes to Emmy, his sister, Max is her biggest fan. She's the one Max looks to for approval.


Emmy

Emmy is Max's eight-year-old sister and the leader of the group. "I know what to do. Come on!" is her mantra. Emmy is brave, smart and good-natured. She is supremely confident in her abilities. She can be found marching into the Forest of Darkness without fear, even though she may be holding Max's hand to make "him" feel better. She usually believes that she's right and emphasizes it with her signature slogan "Definitely!". Sometimes her over-confidence can land her and her friends in a heap of trouble. And that's where the learning begins.


Enrique

Enrique is Max and Emmy's next door neighbor. He is a eight-year-old boy from Colombia who is being raised by his father and by his grandmother, whom he calls abuelita (granny). He is smart, logical and bilingual. He had moved several times before and found it hard to make new friends. Once Emmy and Max reach out to him, they soon become inseparable, sharing fun adventures in Dragon Land. Enrique is a character that has only appeared in recent episodes.


Ord

Ord is the largest, strongest, fastest, blue dragon who is afraid of almost everything. More than anything Ord wishes he could be brave. Ord has a badge that lights up when he finds a way to overcome his fears - even if his courage is fleeting. Like the other dragons, Ord loves to fly. When Emmy or the other dragons want to encourage their big friend, they point out that he once was afraid of flying and now he's not. Perhaps the one thing bigger than Ord's heart is his appetite and he can almost always be distracted by food -- his favorites are dragonberry pies, dragonberry muffins and dragonberry cakes. Ord loves his friends, especially Max, whom he affectionately calls "little buddy". When Ord is afraid, he turns invisible. If there is one thing that Ord loves above all else, it is probably giving Creambeards to Cassie. Regardless, he's the dragon who makes mistakes all the time especially the kind that can be funny.


Cassie

Cassie is the little, lovable pink girl dragon. She's the 35th hatchling of 72 in her family - the typical middle child who strives to help everyone. Cassie is the first one to offer a bandage when someone gets hurt and is always ready to cheer up a gloomy friend. She is shy about expressing her ideas because she worries that she'll be wrong. When she's sad, she shrinks. When she's happy again, she grows back. Slowly but surely, Cassie is learning to trust her own instincts - even when others don't agree. She wears a dragon badge in the shape of a pearl which glows brilliantly when she gains the courage to speak up and believe in her own wisdom.


Zak and Wheezie

Zak & Wheezie are brother and sister–one body and two heads. Zak is the neat, quiet, orderly, sissy, stubborn, arrogant, green brother; Wheezie is the wild, loud, friendly, free-spirited, crazy purple sister. Because they're real music lovers, they make up a "one-dragon band"; they can even play scales on their scales! Also, they know a music-gifted creature when they see one. At times, their opposite personalities can lead to disagreement, but harmony returns when they learn to respect and listen to each other. They'll try anything to get away from each other in moments of anger and violence. once, a magical chant that separated them; or an "Alone Cone", which isolated one head from the other--but in the end they're always glad to be reunited. Their musical-note badges light up when they can find a way to meet a difficult challenge–like getting along with each other. As with most brothers and sisters, they don't agree on a lot, but when they put their heads together, it's music to their ears. Zak's catchphrase is "Take it easy, Wheezie!" Wheezie's catchphrase is, "Looooove it!"


Quetzal

Quetzal (prounoced "Ketzel") is a wise dragon who has been in Dragon Land for centuries. He is an expert on Dragon Land lore and is a great resource for Emmy and the others. As one of the older members of the Quetzalcoatl culture of Dragon Land (which is the same as the Mexican culture in Max and Emmy's world), Quetzal speaks with a Spanish accent and adds some of his native language to his speech. He's the teacher at The School in the Sky, gently guiding our cast on their voyage of self-discovery. His classroom is full of books, art supplies and surprises, including The Big Storybook - a fantastical almanac of sorts. Quetzal is the person the youngsters turn to when they need a grownup but the wise dragon never gives them a total solution. He just leads them to discover, on their own, the right path to take. He also has an identical twin brother named Fernando, but he is barely seen on the show. Mexican may have several meanings. ...


Lorca

Lorca is a red dragon in a wheelchair; he was born without wings, and he is paralyzed from the waist down, so he relies on his arm muscles to get around. Lorca is a wise yet somewhat quiet dragon, who sees the best in others. His motto is, "think what you can do, not what you can't." Wheelchair seating in a theater. ...

About Dragons: History, Tales and Legends (2628 words)
The dragon is the enemy of the sun and the moon, both in Eastern and Western mythology, and is believed to be responsible for eclipses.
Because the dragon was the natural enemy of man, his death became the ultimate goal, consequently there are innumberable battles between gods and dragons, saints and dragons, and in the medieval world, knights and dragons.
In the oriental tradition of opposites, the dragon is correlated with the masculine yang power while the phoenix, the bird of rebirth, is associated with the feminine yin force.
Dragon Tales - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1688 words)
Dragon Tales is an animated children's television series chronicling the adventures of the human children Max and Emmy (brother and sister respectively) and their friend Enrique.
In Dragon Land, the children meet up with their dragon friends — Cassie, Ord, Zak and Wheezie (the latter two being conjoined twins) — and their bilingual teacher, Quetzal, as they learn valuable life lessons, aided by the fact that the children are inexperienced with the magical flora and fauna of Dragon Land.
As one of the older members of the Quetzalcoatl culture of Dragon Land (which is the same as the Mexican culture in Max and Emmy's world), Quetzal speaks with a Mexican accent and adds some of his native language to his speech (we know this language as Spanish).
