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

James and Helen - 19 year old university students; we believe this is without question the best show ever to have been made in the history of the world, ever! TV was only invented so that the world could witness the adventures of Gorwen the dragon, Boris, Doris, Moris, Rodey the rat, the three little kids, the widgets, and the struggle to rid Pelamar of the evil Charn, and mend the ever-glowing yellow vetacore, that all took place inside a mural painted on a school wall.
