Itching For A Cure/The Big Race

Season 3, Episode 5 of 29

ITCHING FOR A CURE: Emmy, Max, Enrique and their dragon friends are building a giant card house. While they're balancing cards, the ground begins to tremble and the cards come crashing down! They investigate the source of the rumbling tremors and find their giant friend Mungus rolling around on the ground. He has a terrible itch! The gang brings Mungus to Dr. Booboogone for help, and she sends them on a quest for special ingredients to make "Itch Be Gone" cream. They face some challenges in collecting the ingredients, but knowing how much Mungus needs their help encourages them to not give up. Mungus is VERYgrateful for his friends' help and shows his appreciation by helping them build another, even bigger, card house. EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Persisting to try to help a friend feel better. / THE BIG RACE: It is the day of the Big Dragon Land Road Race. Teammates Lorca and Enrique 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! EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Learning the importance of teamwork, whether you win or lose
