Serendipity the Pink Dragon (ピュア島の仲間たち Pyuatō no Nakama-tachi, Serendipity Stories: Friends of Pure Island) is a 26-episode anime television series produced by NTV and Zuiyo which aired weekly from 1 July 1983 to 23 December 1983 in Japan. The series was based on the Serendipity books by Stephen Cosgrove and character designs for the animation version were done by Yoichi 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 series follows their adventures on the island.
A feature-length English dub consisting of episodes from the TV series, directed by Jim Terry (Force Five), was released on home video in the United States on March 9, 1989 by Celebrity Home Entertainment. The boy's name was changed from Kōna to "Bobby" in the English version. The TV series itself has also been aired in France, as Biniky le Dragon Rose (Biniky the Pink Dragon), in Italy as Rosaura and in Iran as Serendipity.
