Make No Mistake is the first segment of the twenty-first episode of the second season of Dragon Tales.


Quetzal as a director, presents a special play the gang is about to put on in Dragon Land which is called "Paint Your Dragon". Everyone is very excited, especially Max, since he's the star of the play by taking the painter role on painting the dragon sculpture. However, he is also very nervous on showing up on stage at the talent show in public since he's afraid of making a mistake in front of the audience, which includes Lorca, being unique and the clones of the Dragon Land citizens. To help get his nerves go away, the rest of the gang helps him on thinking happy thoughts and not thinking about the audience laughing at him about his mistake.
