The Balancing Act is the second segment of the twenty-first episode of the second season of Dragon Tales.


Emmy brings her skateboard to Dragon Land to show it to the dragon friends, but Ord also wants a turn to try it and has lots of trouble on doing so since he needs lots of practice. However, Ord's not very good in his balancing, so the rest of the gang tries to help him on using his balance on obstacles along the way after Emmy's skateboard rides away on its own after splashing into a muddy puddle by following the muddy trail it left behind.

  • Mr. Dustfree: Oh, dear, dear! So much grime, so little time.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Moral: Balancing and taking practice in certain things you've never tried before can be very difficult, but after you keep on practicing multiple times, you'll get a lot better at them.
