** Also, the show got away with "stupid," which is normally taboo on shows like this.



** Don't forget one of Max's first lines in the show.
-->'''Max''': I don't like our new house! It's dumb!
** "Hate" was also gotten away with as well, as far as words being used, which is generally just as taboo as "stupid" or "dumb."
** Max combines the two in "Knot a Problem."
-->'''Max''': I don't wanna practice. I hate knots. They're stupid!

The show has a considerable PeripheryDemographic, as it resembles an [[TheEighties 1980s]] cartoon that was trapped in a time warp. Well, it's colorful, fantasy themed, and is enjoyably trippy at times. [[MyLittlePony Sound familiar]]? (Note that {{Sugar Apocalypse}}s are not part of the package on this show - although, amusingly, this show [[HeyItsThatVoice shares some talent with]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the latest incarnation of that show]].)

* WingedUnicorn: Eunice in ''A Tall Tale''. She even has a golden horn. And, [[HeyItsThatVoice was voiced by]] [[MyLittlePonyG3 G3 Pinkie Pie]]. There's also a bunch of young unicorns in "Making it Fun" and they're all winged too, so maybe all unicorns in Dragon Land have wings.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The "lost forever hole." If something falls into this hole, it really is lost forever. Gone, finito, no hope of recovery, as Ord learns to great sadness when he accidentally drops his favorite blanket into it.

Added DiffLines:

*ExplainExplainOhCrap:"Small Time" Emmy and Max are shrunken by Shrinking Violets (as in, literal violets that shrink anything when in bloom) just before the dragons arrive. The dragons are confused about only finding the kids' backpacks right by the flowerbeds. They realize what happened when Wheezie finds Emmy's kickball that also shrunk.
-->'''Cassie''': It's kinda funny Emmy and Max aren't here yet. They always come when we call for them.\\
'''Ord''': That's weird. You don't think they'd only send her backpack. (''holds up Emmy's backpack'')\\
'''Zak''': Huh? How come Emmy's backpack here?\\
'''Wheezie''': And Emmy isn't?\\
'''Cassie''': Where'd you find that, Ord?\\
'''Ord''': Right beside these flowers.\\
'''Cassie''': Careful, Ord. Those are shrinking violets. When they bloom, they shrink anything they touch!\\
'''Ord''' (''pulling his finger away''): Oh!\\
'''Wheezie''': Hey, what's this? (''picks up the shrunken kickball'') I found a marble that looks like a dragon ball.\\
'''Cassie''': Say, that looks just like Emmy's kickball. It must've shrunk. [''gasps''] What if Max and Emmy touched the Shrinking Violets?\\
'''Zak''': Well, then they'd shrink down to teeny, tiny...OH, NO! ''They shrunk!''

* GiganticAdultsTinyBabies: Most of the dragons sizes range [[ShoulderSizedDragon from small]] to [[FunSize medium]], to quite large. Ord's mother ''is huge''. If that's any indication of how big Ord will become when he grows up.

** She so was desperate for companionship however, she didn't include the part of the spell on her scales [[MissingStepsPlan that would send them home]]. Emmy and Max [[TrappedInAnotherWorld were now trapped in Dragon Land]]. Fortunately magic-welder Quetzal knew how to reverse the teleportation spell [[TheresNoPlaceLikeHome and taught the rhyme to them both]].

* IJustWantToHaveFriends: As Quetzal explains, long ago there was a lonely dragon, and she badly wanted [[HumansAreSpecial to walk with humans]]. She very gifted in the magical arts, and so sent out dragon scales [[ForHappiness to bring children from our world to her world]]. Her story ends happily as she made three human friends.
