Loved That Dragon

 

I was a member of  The BJ & Dirty Dragon Fan Club when I was a child. I still have my autographed picture like the one pictured above on the left. It was everything a kid’s television show should be-funny, creative, and imaginative. Characters like The Lemon Joke Kid who would drop lemons from the sky and cause your face to pucker and The Blob, a talking chunk of  clay, that would be transformed each day. Last but not least, there was Dirty Dragon, the postmaster, who always accidentally burned up all the mail. The show had heart. It was one of the first shows I can remember that “recruited” kids to hold backyard carnivals to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. Many children, including myself, were inspired to make a difference in their little corner of the world and to help others.  Thank you BJ and Dirty  Dragon for teaching me to make the world a little brighter!

  2. How I enjoy looking back on the childhood shows that inspired us. This was a great idea for a slice. I may have to do this one day. 🙂

  3. I’ve never heard of that show, but it seems to have made quite an impression. Thank you for sharing!

  4. I’d give almost anything to see the Lemon Joke Kid in action one more time. He was scary but so funny. I tell my kids about the show and once made a big Blob thing for the kids. They found it ‘amusing.’ I tell bad jokes and then make that “ahwoooo! ahwoooo! ahwoooo!” sound like on the show. Nobody gets it but me. Sadness.
