Who was Dudley the Dragon?

If you are like me, you know exactly who Dudley the Dragon is and you can even sing the theme song. If you have yet to learn of the Adventures of Dudley the Dragon, let me be the one to introduce you right here on this page!

Dudley the Dragon is a children's show which aired in Canada and the United States between the years of 1993 to 1997 or, and this will explain why I know the theme song so well, during the years in which my first son was between the ages of newborn and four years old. Of course, it also aired in reruns for years after that & people watched it on VHS videotape, too.

The show consisted of live actors, what they call 'full body' costumed characters and puppets with the most notable one, of course, being the giant dragon of the show's name, Dudley. The show centers around Dudley fresh out of hibernation and his two ten-year old friends named Matt and Sally. The children helped Dudley learn about life in the modern world and the show covered subjects like caring for the environment, the importance of friendship and pro-social values.

On this page, you will find interesting facts about Dudley's adventures, a complete list of the show episodes, a video of the show opening and theme song as well as Dudley the Dragon merchandise including rare and hard-to-find Dudley the Dragon VHS videotapes, plush, music and so much more. For newcomers, it will be a great introduction. For Dudley the Dragon fans, it will be a trip back to children's television in the 1990s!

Dudley was so popular with children that he found himself in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in the form of a six-storey tall float!

Dudley Programs

Unfortunately, The Adventures of Dudley the Dragon television shows are ONLY available on VHS videotape. I have had the opportunity to sell a few through my eBay store and I know they are sought after and that some episodes are more readily available than others.

If you are buying a used videotape, I strongly encourage you to shop carefully and make sure that the seller you are dealing with has a good reputation and that he or she GUARANTEES the video tape to work without any issues, as I do. Otherwise, there is a fare amount of risk in buying a used videotape.

Also, if you are hanging onto your VHS copies of this show or other shows that are not available on DVD, I encourage you to read up on how to look after your collector's items. On my page, Rare VHS Videotapes A Collector's Guide to Videotapes, you will find a complete guide to the proper way to store and care for your video tapes. I encourage you to check it out. All this said, not to discourage you but rather to encourage you to treat the tapes as valuable collector's items, which they are.

If you love Dudley, I know you would like to go back in time and visit him again through the adventures of his television show. Let's hope that they will release a Dudley the Dragon DVD in the future. Meanwhile, if we want to watch Dudley we will have to be content with watching him on videotapes.

Merchandising of Dudley was somewhat controlled to reflect Dudley's environmentally friendly way of thinking with stipulations like the fact that toys, clothing etc. would be made out of natural fibres and that food would not include sugar or preservatives.
