Play It And Say It is the fifteenth episode of the third season of Dragon Tales.


Max, Emmy, Enrique and the dragon friends play a game of Hopscotch using 8 squares and try to remember their numbers in Spanish, but Ord has a hard time learning his numbers in Spanish, although Quetzal tries to teach him and the rest of the dragons in the School in the Sky. However, Norm the Number Gnome plays a trick on the gang on taking all of the numbers off of squares, saying that the only way they can get them back is by playing a game of Hot and Cold, by finding the numbers after he hides them. It's up to the rest of the gang to help Ord remember his numbers in Spanish while searching for the numbers missing from the hopscotch game.

Memorable Quotes[]


Home Video release[]




  • Emmy says that there are 9 squares in a game of Hopscotch, while Enrique says that there are only 8 squares in a game of "Rayuela". Although, there are actually 10 squares in a game of Hopscotch, not 9 or 8.
  • After the gang finds numbers 6 and 7 stuck on top of dandelions in Dandelion Forest, Ord's doesn't sneeze their seeds away. Although, it is mentioned in previous episodes that he's allergic to them. Perhaps the screenwriter forgot that information.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Morals:
    • It's a good idea to be bilingual and learn to speak in a new language other than your native one, as it makes you get smarter. However, it's also acceptable to just be monolingual and only speak in your own native language.
    • Even though you're having trouble learning to speak and fully understand a new language, you'll get better at it by taking more and more practice through time.
  • As is true with a few other parodies, Cassie's song about how to say "three" and "four" in Spanish is set to the tune of "London Bridge."
  • This is the only Season 3 episode ever to be released on VHS. The rest of the Season 3 episodes were either only released on DVD, or just simply not released in Home Video at all.
