  • It is set in a classic, yet timeless world where humans and dragons coexist. The hero is Artha Penn, an ordinary teenager who is plunged into an incredible adventure when he is chosen to ride Beaucephalis, the dragon of legend. When teamed with Beau, Artha is transformed into a mythical hero knows as the Dragon Booster, a hero charged with the task of saving the world from an impending war and uniting humans and dragons for once and for all. Dragon Booster is high-octane adventure set against the backdrop of dragon racing where 12-ton reptiles chew up the asphalt at over 200 miles per hour!Dragon Booster, conceived by The Story Hat, and the animation of the series is being produced by Nerd Corps Entertainment, a 3D animation facility based in Vancouver.The creators decided to end the series in the middle of the story due to low ratings.moreless

    Trivia (9)

    • Connor gives Artha his old racing jacket in this episode, however the lettering on the back of the jacket spells out "ARTHA". If it was Connor's old jacket, you'd expect it to say either "CONNOR" or perhaps "PENN", but I suppose we can assume that he had it altered in hopes Artha would take up dragon racing. The other curious thing about the jacket is that the lettering is a mirror image of what it should be. So you have to read the letters right to left, plus each letter is reversed as well. No explanation is ever given for why the lettering on the back of his jacket is a mirror image. It's unknown if this was intentional or a goof when the computer model was made. The lettering remains a mirror image in every subsequent episode, so it's permanent for whatever the reason was.

    • When Artha Penn aka the Dragon Booster is saving Kitt Wonn he puts his arms out infront of him but the next time we see his arms is when he gets his wings and they are next to his body.

    • In this episode, it is mentioned that Parmon Sean's mother is a teacher at the Tech Academy.

    • When Artha and Parm are at the ancient priest city, it shows Beau as the black and gold dragon, but then he's the red and blue dragon again.

    • When you see Beau at the racing track as the blue and red dragon he has the black and gold dragon's bonemark.

    • Why did the Muhorta wait so long before going after Word's dragon? The wraith dragons I can understand, because they were invisible (at first).

    • This episode reveals for the first time that Word is aware of the existence of Mortis. Prior to this episode, it appears that only Artha and his friends know of Mortis. Mortis and Word have never met in any of the episodes, so this implies that they've known each other from prior to the events in episode 1.

    • Artha as part of a advertisement for Dragon's food, is forced to eat Dragon's food

    Allusions (4)

    • The names of Artha, Lance, and Penn seem to allude to or be based off of the legend of King Arthur; Artha is, of course, Arthur, Lance is Lancelot, Arthur's greatest and one of the most well known Knights of the Round Table. The last name of Penn would be Pendragon, the adopted last name of King Arthur.

    • Kit: You've got me, but who's got us. This is an allusion to Superman (1978), where Christopher Reeve's Superman caught Margot Kidder's Lois Lane as she fell from the top of the Daily Planet building after her helicopter crashed.

    • Kit: "Aren't you a little short for a Dragon Booster?"
      Kit paraphrases Princess Leia's famous line from the original Star Wars "Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?" when she first lays eyes on Lance in the Dragon Booster suit.

    • In this episode, after Word is surprised at seeing Connor alive, Connor makes an allusion to a famous Mark Twain quote: "Reports of my demise were greatly exaggerated."
