List RulesVote up the cartoons that primarily feature dragons

Dragons are cool and dragon cartoons are even cooler. Since the beginning of animation, the best cartoons have been filled with animals rather than humans. It's no wonder that dragons, dramatic and fire breathing, have become favorites in animated fantasy series. Dragon cartoons and animated series starring dragons are some of the most most fun animated animal shows when it comes to imaginary creatures. Whether they're funny, dramatic, cute or educational, the animated mythical beasts of our favorite childhood - and adulthood - TV shows will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The series on this list, all of which feature dragons of varying levels of ferociousness as the star, were with us during our Saturday mornings in front of the TV and our after-school homework procrastination sessions. So let's rank the top dragon cartoons that kept us all company from best to worst.
