Dragon Tales

The Big Race/Bye, Bye Baby Birdie

Season 3, Episode 22 of 29

The Big Race - It is the day of the Big Dragon Land Road Race. Teammates Lorca and Enrique get off to a great start on Lorca's modified wheelchair, but soon find themselves at a standstill when they can't work together. After getting advice from Quetzal, they realize that being a team means working together. They begin to pass their friends who are also having trouble cooperating and offer helpful teamwork suggestions for them. Enrique teaches a Spanish rhyme to Cassie and Emmy to help them pedal together, which comes in handy again when the entire gang ends up in a pile-up that entangles their go-carts. Stuck together, they head comically toward the finish line in a long train reciting the rhyme to keep in sync. Even though the team doesn't win the race, they learn a valuable lesson about cooperation and teamwork! Bye, Bye Baby Birdie - While playing in a meadow, the gang discovers a family of rhyming birds, and Emmy and a baby bird take a shine to each other. Emmy names the bird Cutie Pie and they have so much fun together that she doesn't notice when the bird's family flies away. Although she's very attached to Cutie Pie, Emmy, with help from Quetzal and all her friends, understands that the baby bird needs to go home. After all, how would Emmy feel if she couldn't be with her family? The gang promises to help her say goodbye to her new pal. They all set out together and find Cutie Pie's family at their home in Very Merry Valley. Zak reminds Emmy that she knows where Cutie Pie lives now, so she can visit anytime she wants! Emmy gives Cutie Pie a keepsake - a ribbon from her hair. As Cutie Pie waves goodbye, one of her feathers flies into the air, she catches it in her beak and presents it to Emmy. Feeling much better, Emmy says goodbye to her new friend-until next time!
