Dragon Tales

The Balancing Act/A Small Victory

Season 3, Episode 12 of 29

The Balancing Act - Emmy is excited about taking her new skateboard to Dragon Land. When Ord sees what Emmy has brought with her, he wants to try to skate, too. Emmy's happy to share, so Quetzal sprinkles the skateboard with Gro-water to make it dragon-size. Ord tries, but doesn't have very good balance, and as he falls, the skate board shoots out from under him. He feels terrible about losing Emmy' s skate board, and the gang heads out to find it. Along the way, Ord encounters many instances that call for him to try to balance. When they finally discover Emmy's board, Ord has practiced his balancing enough so that he can have fun riding the skateboard. A Small Victory - Quetzal gives the gang the task of collecting rare exotic plants to add to the School in the Sky garden. When Max is teamed with Lorca, he is worried that they can't handle very much - Max is small and Lorca is in a wheelchair. After Max tells Lorca about his frustration, Lorca shows him ways to overcome his physical limitations and to "think of what you can do, not what you can't." When they find their plant and cannot reach it, Max gets discouraged, but Lorca helps him to use a tool to retrieve it. They use their brains to help the others overcome challenges presented by their own exotic plants. In the end, Max realizes that with some brains and the right tools, he can do anything!
