Itching For A Cure is the first segment of the fifth episode of the third season of Dragon Tales.


There seems to be an earthquake in Dragon Land which prevents the gang from building their giant house of cards. It turns out the shaking is caused by none other than Mungus the Giant, who’s suffering from a nasty itch all over his back and have a green rash. With some help from Dr. Booboogone, the gang goes all over Dragon Land to gather ingredients for Itch-Be-Gone cream with honey, limes and chili peppers, a special ointment that’s sure to make the itches go away.

Memorable Quotes[]



  • As can be told by the pitch in the voice and eyelashes, the rhyme bird who keeps saying, "Slime climb lime" is obviously a female, yet Cassie and Emmy refer to her as a male.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • This episode, alongside "The Big Race," is one of the last episodes to air alongside an episode made exclusively for the third season; the rest of them were made to air alongside repeats of season 2 episodes.
  • During the scene where the girls (not including Wheezie) collect limes from a tree, they throw them down to the ground. In real life, it is not ideal to throw any kind of fruit onto any kind of ground because it either bruises, punctures, or destroys them, and any produce on the ground rots to become part of the soil and future fruit.
  • What Chilly doesn't warn Ord and Max about eating chili peppers is to drink milk (not water) to cool it down. Water is not a good answer because chili peppers contain an oil that, if spread, would hurt your throat. Milk, however, contains a fat that would break it down.
