Why is this not available on DVD?
15 April 2005 | by (Squealpiggy, WV) – See all my reviews

I loved this series growing up. Absolute favorite episode was Dragon's Blood, the first of Jane Yolen's "Pit Dragon Trilogy" of books about the Austarian dragons and the dragon masters who train them for battle.

Every episode was a classic. This series was the reason I got out of bed on Saturday mornings! So many of the classic shows of my youth are becoming available on DVD, there's no reason this shouldn't be one of them.

Storybreak gave children their first taste of what reading books can be like. Some of these books (like the aforementioned Dragon's Blood) I didn't have available to me at the time, and in fact had never even heard of, but once I knew about them I had to read the full story (no matter how well done, a 30 minute cartoon can't give the entire experience of the book, but it CAN spark the interest to find the book and get the rest of the story for yourself)

But the fact of the matter is, these stories WERE well done! Whether it's a story of a boy who ate too much chocolate, or a kid who was transported to a parallel dimension where Dinosaurs evolved and mankind was extinct. Silly or serious, as long as it's entertaining...and it always WAS!
