Pigment of Your Imagination is the first segment of the fifth episode of the first season of Dragon Tales.


The gang makes gifts for I Love My Mommy Day. The kids and dragons go to Rainbow Canyon to get some more paint. But somehow, they can't bring dandelions because Ord is allergic.


Emmy is building a wall with blocks, and Max flies his toy airplane, causing it both to knock her wall down and break itself, much to Emmy's initial anger and Max's dismay, respectively. However, Emmy cools down and reminds him of something (or, in this case, someone) better to fly: dragons. So they depart for Dragon Land.

In Dragon Land, the dragons are painting crafts for I Love My Mommy Day. Ord is painting a vase, and the rest are painting mugs. When Max and Emmy arrive, they learn about this, and that they'll be firing their crafts with their fire breath.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • I Love My Mommy Day is based on Mother's Day.
  • It is revealed why Rainbow Canyon is called that: it rains every afternoon, making a beautiful rainbow.
  • The rule of picking up any paint from there is to get it before it rains because rain makes the colors all muddy.
  • Zak has set his and Wheezie's mug on the grass before the latter fired it with her fire breath. In the real world, grass can get burned up, and that pollutes.
  • The background shots of Turtle Rock, Rainbow Canyon, and the Dandelion Forest in this episode are the fourth, sixth, and seventh shots respectively to be seen in the show's closing credits.
