The Adventures of Dudley the Dragon is a children's television series which aired in Canada on YTV and the United States on public television stations, through Tampa, Florida PBS member station WEDU. The show ran for five seasons from 1993 to 1999. It was a live-action show incorporating actors, full body costume characters (notably the titular dragon) and puppets. The story follows Dudley, a dragon who recently woke up from centuries of hibernation and his new ten-year-old friends Matt and Sally. The two kids would guide Dudley around the modern world and the trio would learn about environmentalism, friendship and pro-social values.
Besides Matt and Sally, Dudley was later joined by other kids, Julia, Terry, Laura, and Mickey. Other recurring characters included a grouchy apple tree named Mr. Crabby Tree, a laid back frog named Sammy, a lovable caveman, and the Robins.
