The series was based on the Serendipity books by Stephen Cosgrove and character designs for the animation version were done by Yōichi Kotabe. After a boy is shipwrecked on a deserted island, he finds a pink egg which hatches into the pink dragon (referred to as a dinosaur in the English-language theme song) Serendipity.

The TV series itself has also been aired in France, as Biniky le Dragon Rose (Biniky the Pink Dragon), in Italy as Rosaura, in Iran as Serendipity and in Spain as Biniki, el dragón rosa. There hasn't been a DVD release of the English dub as of 2017.
