Most Popular Dragons Of All Time
1. Puff The Magical Dragon
Puff, the magical dragon is actually a song sung by Peter, Paul and Mary in 1963 which achieved great popularity and stirred controversy with the idea thatpuffing the magic dragon had something to do with smoking marijuana. Though the authors of the song have repeatedly rejected this urban legend and have strongly and consistently denied that they intended any references to drug use.

The story is about the hardships of growing up.

The funniest dragon that ever lived. Well, he didnt exactly live, except for in our spawning creative minds. Mushu is a red dragon that appeared in the 1998Disney filmMulan and its sequel. Voiced by Eddie Murphy initially and Mark Moseley later, Mushu provides comic relief in the films. He is overconfident, funny, impulsive and selfish. Once he was a guardian of Mulans family but was demoted for not being able to protect one of family members. Desperate to rise to his former position he urges Mulan to join the army and places his life on risk which he later regrets. Underneath everything Mushu has a good heart and is rather sensitive about his size. He hates being called a lizard Hey! Dragon. DRAGON, I dont do that tongue thing (hisses).
