    1980s Dragon Cartoon
    When I was a kid I remember an animated dragon cartoon that was a one shot deal or just a mini series. It was a serious cartoon. One of the events in it may have been a dragon egg hatching and a boy getting the dragon or being protected by dragons in some fantasy realm. It may have been an after school special movie, but obviously not one in which there was a "moral" or anything like the classic "After School Specials". It is NOT the Dragon's Lair cartoon or the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon or "Flight of Dragons".

    Can anyone help me find references to it? My internet searches have all been dead ends.

    I can't remember the name of the cartoon either. But I am looking for it too, a bit of nostalgia for it. Please post the answer if you find it. I was just a kid when it came out, but in my eyes it was very cool. It wasn't an afterschool special, because I remember watching it in the evening. Also I remember one of the kids turning into a dragon, but he still had a kids voice. There was one scene where he battled another dragon and the other dragon burned from head to tail like a fuse on a firecracker. Maybe this will help jog your memory.

    You're ringing bells, but I don't think I'll ever be able to come up with a name. I was too young to care about names of shows I think. :(

    Anyone else? :D

    There are parts that look familiar but parts that don't. I may just be not remembering correctly. But thanks for your help and I'm glad I jogged your memory! :D

    It was an After School Special based on the book Dragon's Blood by Jane Yolen. Sadly, I can't seem to find any reference to an existing video of it anywhere, but I'm certain as it was my favorite book and I remember the cartoon.

    DUDE! I was just scouring the internet trying to figure out what the name of that mini series was called. Its funny cause I know a recorded on to a tape of cartoons a billion years ago when it aired. Everything you've said so far so far is right on, about the dragon egg and the dragon protecting the kid and they're on some weird alien planet. The one other think I can remember is that they weren't called dragons but it was something like dracs or drakens. Hopefully that rings a bell and you remember the name and then let me know what that name is.

    Yeah I was trying to figure one out too that was kind of sounding like what was described. It wasn't the Nezha Conquers the Dragon King cartoon. The one I was thinking of is an american cartoon (at least I think so). In it there is this guy that lives in a mansion and he finds an egg on a stormy night and it hatches into a dragon who ends up growing and he raises it. The dragon ends up liking shiny things and it takes a pillow case and starts looting the mansion and goes crazy at a party and he gets excommunicated and ends up in a circus I believe then he ends up in a cave. Don't really remember the ending. Any ideas?

    I've heard two different things, one that it was called dragons blood and two that it was called hearts blood, I think both are right, however Dragons Blood was the actual name of the cartoon, and Hearts Blood was the name of the dragon that Jakkin bonded with, I am also looking for this particular video, its been 27 years since I saw it as a little girl and I want to see it again so badly, if anyone happens to come along a link that actually has the show to view please e mail me at icequeen32_1973@yahoo.com I would be glad to do the same for anyone else who wishes the same thing. In the meantime I will keep searching

    I'm looking for the same type of cartoon but its not Flight of the Dragons or Nezha Conquers. The main character was a skinny goofy young man and was thrown into this fantasy quest by some sort of game master or a chess master in a store. The movie I'm thinking of is old school Japan animation or something. It involved the young man saving a dragon egg or maybe he was trying to escape from hatching dragon eggs (my memory is a little foggy about the exacts). Also there was a war of some sort between a red and black dragon.
