Over and Over is the second segment of the fortieth episode of the first season of Dragon Tales.


Max gets pretty mad when he cannot swing on the monkey bars at school or Dragon Land, and he wants to learn, but he just can't do it, even when Ord tries to teach him, and then refuses to try again. However, when Ord gets trapped in sap, it is up to Max to swing to the rescue.





Over And Over (transcript)

Memorable Quotes[]

  • Ord: ♪Swing your body to and fro...♪
  • Max: ♪Grab the bar and don't let go.♪ One bar at a time! [Max almost makes it across until he loses grip] AAAH!!! [He lands on Ord’s back and thankfully, he is able to keep himself from suffering the same sticky fate]
  • Ord: MAX!
  • Max: Don’t move, Ord! [He climbs up on Ord’s arm and is able to get back on the tree bars. With newfound confidence, Max knows that it’s time to take matters into his own hands in hopes of saving his best buddy from being stuck for good] I can get across. I KNOW I can! [Ever carefully, yet quick, Max grabs onto each bar without slipping. Ord just takes another bit of sap to ease his hunger as he looks up, hoping all his coaching paid off. Still, Max doesn’t quit and finally reaches the other side with huge success as he jumps down the tree back on the ground] I made it!
  • Ord: YAAAAAAYYY!!!!
  • Wheezie: We put our flowers together in a braid.
  • Zak: "Orange" you glad we did?
  • [They both laugh.]

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Moral: Don’t be discouraged just because you can’t do something at first. Things (like monkey bars) take a lot of practice. So keep trying and don’t give up.
  • This is the last episode to use traditional cel animation. Starting with "Lucky Stone," the show started to use digital ink and paint.
  • It is also the last episode of this show to air in the 20th century.
  • As such, this is the last episode where Chantal Strand was not a teenager in real life; she was 12 when this season finale first aired.
  • This episode’s premise is somewhat similar to ‘Yes We Can!’ from Dora The Explorer (Nick Jr) and ‘Monkey Bar Business’ from Stanley (Playhouse Disney), as both episodes feature a main character facing the challenge of trying to cross the monkey bars.
  • The singsong “Swing your body to and fro” has the same tune and rhythm as the western song “Swing your partner”, which is commonly used during square dancing.
  • The clip where Ord teaches Max how to swing on the monkey bars was reused in "Remember The Pillow Fort," but when Max mentions it, he calls it a jungle gym. Generally, it is true that monkey bars are a kind of jungle gym, but he didn't call this equipment that in this episode.
