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.
