First written in 1959 by filmmaker Leonard Lipton and [[Music/PuffTheMagicDragon set to music]] in 1963 by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul, and Mary, "Puff, the Magic Dragon" tells the story of a boy who outgrows his childhood fantasies. The song also inspired a series of animated TV specials that recast the eponymous dragon, voiced by Burgess Meredith, as a sort of fantastical child psychologist coming to the aid of some deeply troubled children.
