Windows Media Player 9 lists the title of the DVD that comes with the free glow-in-the-dark stickers as "Let's Start A Band [With CD]" when the DVD is inserted while the PC is connected to the Internet. Um, what CD?
The box of the DVD insists that the DVD will only work on Region 1 (USA & Canada) DVD players, but a quick scan with DVD Genie reveals that the DVD will also work with region 3(South-East Asia) and 4(Australia, New Zeland, Mexico, Central & South America) DVD players.
In the song "Betcha Can", the words "Betcha Can" are captioned as "Bet You Can"
The Dragon Tune "Doodli-Do" is captioned as "Doodly-do." This mistake is not present on the sing-along content featured on the DVD version.
In the Dragon Tune, "Hello," Ord's name is incorrectly captioned as "Org" in the line, "Hi, Hello, My name is Zak, Wheezie, Ord, Cassie." This error is not present in the English subtitle caption track.
PBS online listings incorrectly give the names of Sam and Jennifer as Sarah and Joey.
Nina: Thanks for hanging out with us. And remember: music makes the world go round.
Nina: Music has a way of bringing people together, don't you think?
Erkyah Badu: Music that comes from the heart always makes me smile. Because the feeling of the music is just as important as the words.
Nina: If you live in our neighborhood, you've got to be into dragon games.
Jennifer: Maybe we should just doodli-do again.
Nina: Are you shy about meeting them?
Nina: I know a certain dragon that would feel the same way.
Nina: What are you doodli-doing?
Jennifer: I tripped like a tripping bear.
Nina: You guys watch Dragon Tales, right?
Jennifer: Sure! Everybody does.
Nina: There's nothing better than singing dragons to get your energy going.
Nina: Sometimes I think morning comes too soon. But, the sooner I get up, the sooner I can see some special friends of mine.
The DVD has two caption tracks: One standard white text on black background caption (standard captions) and a larger-sized yellow text with no background caption. (English subtitles) Both caption tracks are in English, with little differences (the standard caption displays 3 musical note symbols to signal the start of a Dragon Tune and all the text displayed during Dragon Tunes are prefixed and suffixed with a musical note symbol, while the lager yellow-text caption does not signal the start of a Dragon Tune and does not prefix and suffix the text during Dragon Tunes with musical note symbols). Additionally, the English subtitle track does not describe any sound effects.
Nina Elias Bamberger is credited as Nina Elias-Bamberger and Jennifer Michelle Brown is credited as Jennifer Brown.
