Abelardo the Dragon
|This article does not cite any sources. (August 2008) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)|
Abelardo was a tall orange-and-yellow scaled Dragon which had a soft, gentle voice and a very particular way of talking, making pauses after every sentence. His favorite treats were pumpkin seeds or "semillas de calabaza" which in Mexico are a very popular snack, also known as "Pepitas".
In the later seasons Abelardo's character was replaced by Serapio Montoya, a large parrot-like character with a strong resemblance to Big Bird, of whom he is a cousin. However, children and others continued to refer to Serapio as "Abelardo" and therefore his name was later changed to Abelardo Montoya.
The reason the dragon character was replaced when the series was re-launched in 1982, remains unexplained
