Trivia / Dragon Tales

  • He Also Did: Behind the scenes, Wesley Eure- famous for Land of the Lost in the 70s and Finders Keepers in the 80s, was a co-creator. He wasn't credited when the series landed, however; he ended up suing Sony over it.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: While a number of official DVD releases are available, there was never a complete series release. Which means that even if you shell out for every official DVD, you'll still be missing quite a bit of the show. January 2013 saw the show made available on Netflix Instant Streaming, which is still of no help to those living outside the US.
    • Not to mention, Netflix cut out all of the awesome songs, leaving fans to purchase the DVDs and soundtracks as the only way to get the songs, as the show no longer airs on PBS or Sprout.
  • Now Which One Was That Voice?: Type 2; the credits don't list the characters' names alongside their voice actors.
  • Playing Against Type: You don't get to see the otherwise awesome Scott McNeil play a Pungeon Master tree anywhere else.
  • Screwed by the Network - Screwed by RTM1 in Malaysia. Only season 1 made it through, and even then it was frequently pre-empted, and when they cut to commercials, they did not pause the master tape, causing scenes to go missing.
  • What Could Have Been: According to Wesley Eure's website, Zak and Wheezy were originally named Snarf and Bugger.
