Jenny, Amanda, and Scott are painting a mural on a wall in their school's playground. Suddenly, the dragon in the mural winks at them and begins to come alive. The dragon invites them into the mural and the children enter to discover a land called Pelamar. Gorwen the dragon tells them that the land is dying because its lifeforce, the Veetacore, broke apart. The pieces were collected by the Keepers, but they aren't sure how to put them back together. The kids agree to try and figure out how to fix the Veetacore, which leads them on a journey through Pelamar. Written by Anonymous

Still great after all this time
17 June 2004 | by the_asylum666See all my reviews

I remember being obsessed with this show as a kid after seeing it at school. However I got to thinking about it recently and figured that I'd be put off now by the fact its painfully obvious that its people wearing furry suits and that most of the landscapes look like theyve been painted on a wall in the background. Anyway I have managed to see it again and I found myself falling for it again. it works great as an adventure story, There's so many different elements to it, the quest for the veetons, The widgets who keep appearing and The Evil Charn. actingwise varies, Sean Barret (Gorwen) comes across sounding very wooden, though he does seem to try and I realize he might stammer cos the character is supposed to be weakening but it still sounds wooden. David Collings (Charn) is quite entertaining as he is very menacing in the role and is obviously having fun with it. I also warmed To Tim Lyn as Boris. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this cast has actually gone onto do bigger things like The Archers and Emmerdale. This is definitely a guilty pleasure. Like I said, I thought id grow out of it but i havnt. A classic gem. My fave episode is probably the great battle, tho Charn goes from being genuinely menacing to a bit over the top villain in this one.
