The story of the Dragon begins long ago, when the dragons retired from the world to hide in the middle of the mountains, where no one could find them. Only one family had been stubborn enough to continue to be close to men. The dragon in our history is a descendant of that particularly difficult family. For generations, the men of the Potato Kingdom and the Dragons have struggled to own this small territory. Our dragon is determined to respect tradition. He is not interested in giving so many problems to the inhabitants of the kingdom, but he enjoys making fun of little King Barbis III and every time he sees him, he incinerates his beard.
In the first episode, we find King Barbis who receives a visit from an inspector from the association for the protection of dragons and wishes to see the local dragon, to make sure he is well looked after. King Barbis realizes that the much hated dragon belongs to a species in danger of extinction, therefore it must be protected and protected. In another episode the knight Sir Jochim Clean, has discovered that a colleague of his has invented a machine that will turn the dragon into a waste incinerator, so it will be possible to solve the problem of disposing of the kingdom's garbage.
King Barbis already plans extraordinary deals, and already imagines renting the incinerator to neighboring kingdoms to be able to buy the car of his dreams, but unfortunately things are not going the right way for the poor and unfortunate king. In another story, snow has fallen on the Potato kingdom and an abominable snowman has arrived, threatening to defeat the dragon with snowballs. Riri, melodine and Juju have to get to work right away to help their dragon friend. Meanwhile, King Barbis practices ice skating in preparation for the world championships.
