Dragon Tales

A New Friend/El Dia Del Maestro

Season 3, Episode 8 of 29

A New Friend - There's a new Dragon in town-Lorca, a fun lovin', magic trick performin' extrovert who uses a purple wheelchair with sparkly wheels to get around. "I can't walk, so I roll instead!" The gang is fascinated by the wheelchair, since they've never really seen one before, but are even more fascinated by the amazing treasure map that Lorca reveals! Looks to be quite an adventure, so they all start out immediately to find the X that marks the spot. Along the way, the gang encounters obstacles that block their path, but through teamwork and quick thinking, they're able to help each other through the Forest of Darkness, over a quickly flowing river and across a field filled with "sleepytime fog!" And the buried prize? A box filled with spectacular kaleidoscopes resulting in the best treasure hunt ever! El Dia del Maestro - Every year, the students surprise Quetzal, on "El Dia del Maestro," the day of the teacher. Cassie's sister Sophie is supposed to help them make chalupas, Quetzal's favorite snack, while Enrique teaches the rest of the dragons a special song. When Cassie learns that Sophie cannot help with the chalupas, she thinks that Quetzal's party will be ruined until Emmy convinces her to organize the group herself. At first the process is a little rocky as Cassie is reluctant to take charge, but she forms an assembly line and acts as supervisor. The chalupas are ready, and so is the chorus at the School in the Sky. Everyone surprises Quetzal, who is very touched by his students' efforts. He tells Cassie that the chalupas are the best he's ever tasted, and beams as the chorus sings for him in Spanish and English.
