Grisù il draghetto is an animated Italian television series whose title character is Grisù, a dragon.

The character was created by the Italian brothers Nino and Toni Pagot (best known as the creators of Calimero).[1][2] It first appeared in a 1964 black-and-white animated series of commercial shorts for the Mentafredda Caremoli candies, part of the television program Carosello.[1] A television series consisting of 52 episodes with the adventures of Grisù aired for the first time in 1972.[2][3] The character also named a series of book for children.

The protagonist of the series is a young dragon named Grisù that, despite being the youngest of a large breed of dragons, the Draconis, dreams of becoming a firefighter.[3]

On November 18, 2020, it was announced that a CGI revival of the series is currently in the works.[4]
