Stormy Weather is the second segment of the nineteenth episode of the first season of Dragon Tales.


Ord is very excited to celebrate the Spring Party his mom is decorating at his house and then invites Max and Emmy over to Cloud Island to play along with Cassie and Zak and Wheezie, but when he suddenly hears thunder, he gets very frightened and flies over to a cave. It's up to the rest of the gang to help Ord overcome his fear of thunder by helping him think of happy thoughts and play some games in the cave until the thunderstorm is over.


The episode starts with Max and Emmy wrapping up a present for Ord in their playroom. Max accidentally gets his right thumb stuck after holding the wrapping in place after Emmy tells him to just make a small piece with the tape, Max briefly jokes about that they won't easily forget and lose it. When Emmy gets the small chest out of the drawer, she tells Max that Ord told them to get there early. Then, she takes the Dragon Scale out of the chest, and both of the kids say the rhyme that magically transports them to Dragon Land.

In Dragon Land, Ord is very excited about the Spring Party while his mom decorates it. A few seconds later, Emmy and Max magically appear greeting Ord which summons him to give them a big hug, almost squishing the present they bring to him, making Max to quickly mention about it, so Ord stops hugging them and puts them back down. Ord is desperate to know what his present is, but his mom tells him he can open it later at the Spring Party. Ord then asks his mom when the party will start and his mom promises him that the party will start soon while she walks away.

Ord puts his present away in his pouch and tells Max and Emmy they should go play with Cassie, Zak and Wheezie at the playground on Cloud Island. Emmy is surprised to hear about Cloud Island as Ord tells her and Max that it's best playground in the whole world. Emmy and Max ride on Ord's back, flying to Cloud Island to join their friends.

Zak and Wheezie, and Cassie are seen having lots of fun on the playground, but then Ord suddenly hears thunder, which makes him get frightened, turn invisible, and fly away into a cave to get dry, summoning the rest of the gang to fly after him while Ord covers himself with a blanket. Then, the rest of the gang insists on playing party games to overcome his fear, which he agrees. Then, Ord accidentally hurts Wheezie's leg with a vine while playing a game of "Pin the tail on the unicorn", and Cassie gives her a bandage. The thunderstorm gets stronger after a few minutes which makes Ord get frightened again, so the rest of the gang is trying other techniques to overcome his fear, until Max finally suggests Ord to open his present which he agrees to do so, and discovers it's a superhero's cape and puts it around his back pretending to be "Super Ord", mentioning that he's big brave and not scared of thunder anymore. Then, his dragon badge starts glowing, and the thunderstorm ends making the sun peek out from the clouds, and the gang cheers and finally gets to celebrate the Spring Party over at Ord's house, being able to eat a big Dragonberry cupcake his mom makes for him and his friends.

After Emmy and Max say the rhyme that transports them back home, they discover that there's also a thunderstorm over where they live. Max then puts on a superhero's cape around his back and pretends to be "Super Max", since he says he's not scared of thunder, ending the episode.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Moral: Thunderstorms are very loud and dangerous and can be extremely scary, but as long as you have your friends or family members around you, you don’t have to feel too scared.
  • While both Max and Emmy ride their usual dragon friends, this is both an episode where Emmy rides someone other than Cassie (Ord in this case), and Max rides someone other than Ord (Zak and Wheezie in this case), and an episode where both children ride the same dragon (once again, that would be Ord).
  • This is an episode where a variation of Pin the Tail on the Donkey is played, this one being "Pin the Tail on the Unicorn," where Max has painted every part of the unicorn but the tail on the cave wall, and Wheezie has broken off a vine to use for the tail. There would be another variation in "Feliz Cumpleaños, Enrique".
