Production Notes:

This special was originally released direct to video. It aired as an ABC "Movie of the Week" on August 3, 1986.

Song "The Flight of Dragons" Performed By: Don McLean.

The film was completed in 1982, but was not released in the United States until 1986.

Many Rankin/Bass films were shunted into obscurity after the studio's doors closed; the rarity of "Dragons" led to a cult fascination in recent years, as many who grew up with the film became curious to see it again. A petition to re-release "Dragons" received more than 500 signatures; in 2009, Warner Brothers made it available as a made-to-order DVD.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Alternate Title: "Flight of the Dragon."
