Pete's Dragon, originally produced in 1977 by the Walt
Disney Company, is a musical and live action movie about an
invisible dragon named Elliot. Elliot bonds with an orphan
name Pete and Elliot lets only Pete see and play with him.
The movie is centered on Pete's going to a small fishing
town in Maine in the beginning of the twentieth century.
Because of Elliot's tendency to get into trouble Pete
usually ends up taking the blame for his invisible friend's

Pete is a runaway from a family named "Gogans" who had
adopted him. He has run away because the Gogans were abusive
and generally mistreated Pete. Elliot rescues Pet by
stopping the Gogans pursuit by knocking the family into the
mud. The Gogans, being generally mean and lazy, then
complain about the loss of their orphan and about the fact
that they can't afford another one so they will have to work
the farm themselves.

Pete and Elliot then go to a little fishing town in Maine
called Passamaquoddy, where, because of Elliot's invisible
antics, Pete is labeled unlucky by some of the locals.
Elliot is then seen by character Lampie (played by Mickey
Rooney) at the bar, whereupon Lampie runs around trying to
tell people there is a dragon in town. But no one believes
him, especially his daughter Nora (played by Helen Reddy)
who lives in the Passamaquoddy Lighthouse with Lampie. Nora
then leaves Lampie, telling him to go to sleep, and spies
Pete going into a cave down by the seashore.

Nora follows Pete and offers him a place to sleep at the
lighthouse. Pete, distraught over being chased by the
townsfolk and Elliot's troublemaking in the town, agrees to
Nora's offer only after making Elliot promise to stay in the
cave, which of course Elliot doesn't appreciate.

The story then progresses with Pete being rejected at every
turn, but ends up with Pete being adopted by Nora, and Pete
defeating the Gorgans with a little help from Elliot. This
story is about the triumph of the spirit and determination
of a little boy more than any of the other outside elements
like an invisible dragon. Once Pete is safe Elliot tells him
goodbye and leaves him with his new family. Supposedly
Elliot is off to save another child from cruelty and
