Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon

Synopsis: When Gobber's house burns down, the old Viking is convinced that his nemesis, the legendary Boneknapper Dragon, is responsible. Bent on revenge, Gobber resolves to hunt it down once and for all, despite the fact that no one believes the dragon exists. Regardless, Hiccup and the gang decide to accompany him for his own good. On the sea voyage, Gobber tells the story of his rivalry with the beast, which gets sillier with each episode. When the gang find themselves shipwrecked on the suspected island of the beast, they are about to learn the truth about the dragon.

- Fire!

- Get the buckets!

- To the ocean!

- What happened?

The wind is shifting!

Fire brigade, move in!

- Bring the Nadders in from the south!

- I'm on it!

Gronckles, aim for the roof!

Good work!

Just a few hot spots left.

- Got it!

- Where's Gobber? ls he still inside?

No. Cant find him.

I'm right here.

That beast will pay for this.

Gobber, what happened?

Whats it look like?

A dragon set my home on fire.


You pushed me too tar this time,

you ugly bag of bones!

Dad, whats he talking about'?

Our dragons don't do that anymore.

He doesn't mean one of yours.

Gobber, for the last time,

- there is no such thing as a...

- Boneknapper'?

A boneknapper.?


A disgusting, foul beast,

wearing a coat of stolen bones,

like a giant, flying skeleton.

The dragon manual says that

the Boneknapper will stop at nothing

to find the perfect bone to build

its coat of armor. It's awesome.

Come on! It's a myth.

It doesn't even exist.

I'm telling you, it's real. I've been

running from him my whole life.

Hes the one who started this fire.

Stoick, we found Gobber's

underpants hanging by the stove.

They must've started the fire.

You still think it's the Boneknapper,

or just your underpants?

I don't think! I know!

Somehow he found me again.

This dragon is pure evil.

Gobber, ifs late and we're

too tired for your stories.

Now, get some rest.

You rest. I'm putting an end to this.

Come on, Phil, let's go.

I don't need their help, anyway.

I can't let him go by himself.

All right, Vikings, grab your shields.

- Yes!


There's no way I'm getting on

a boat to go after a fake dragon.

Come on! Put your backs

into it, you lazy dogs! Stroke!

- You're not even trying! Stroke!

- How fun is this? Right?

We got the team back together,

another adventure...

This is pretty cool, huh?

Yep, nothing cooler than

rowing until your hands bleed.

Just want you kids to know

that it touches my heart,

you helping me slay the Boneknapper.

True Vikings, you are.

- Gobber, are we there yet?

- Oh, you'll know we're close

when your ears explode

from the piercing screams.

Legend says this

dragons roar is so fierce,

it can melt the flesh

right off your bones.

Not so, Fishlegs.

The Boneknapper has no roar at all.

That's why he's terrifying.

He's a silent killer.

Wait. So if we don't hear

anything, were dead?

I don't hear anything.

Good one, Phil!

Did I ever tell you about the first time

I met the dreaded Boneknapper

I was a young lad, about your age, on summer vacation with my family,

when I heard the call of nature,

Oh! Dad, pull the boat over!

Didn't I tell ya to go before we left?

I saw an army of Vikings,

frozen in battle!

Clutched in the fingers of one of the Vikings

was a small treasure chest.

I had to have it

l reached in and pulled out the chest.

It was the most

beautiful thing I ever saw

But the frozen Viking was alive!

He started punching me in the face!

My tooth!

And there it was.

I never even heard it coming.

The Boneknapper

It crashed into the glacier,

causing an avalanche of frozen Vikings!

The treasure!

I reached into the water...

...Only to find the frozen Viking

punching me in the face again!

Hey, hey, hey, hey!

The Boneknapper wanted that treasure,

but I wanted it more!

What tuck you so long?

You expect us to believe that a frozen

Viking punched you in the face?

Yeah, twice.

Hey, it could happen.

What do you mean,

"It could happen?" It did!

But I outsmarted the silent beast.

Gobber, I hate to

be a stickler for details,

but Boneknappers are not silent.

Fishlegs, I know what I didn't hear.

- But I could feel it...

- Guys?

- Are there supposed to be.?

- ...had a sixth sense for danger.

- I can smell anything".

- We're gonna hit these...

...taste the oncoming doom...

I'm tasting rocks.

We're here.

Now, we're stuck

in the middle of nowhere

and no one even knows where we are

Except the Boneknapper. Legend says...

Hey, you know what legend also says?

Stop talking!

- OK, just hold on one darn second.

- No need to panic, kids.

- I've been shipwrecked many times.

- Well, that's comforting.

You never forget your first shipwreck.

I was stranded on

an island with only my broom.

Ll was a very small island.

Its no wonder the

Boneknapper found me again.

He never forgave me

for taking that treasure.

There was another island,

my only escape..

But I was surrounded by

bloodthirsty hammerhead sharks!

I only had one chance.

So Iran across

the shark-infested waters

Take that! Watch it!

Night-night, fatty!

Someone forgot to brush.

I didn't? think I was gonna make ii.

But then, from the depths of the ocean, leapt forth

a giant hammerhead whale!

And the hammerhead whale

ate the Boneknapper?

Almost, but he got away.

Years later, the dragon hunted me down

again and chased me into the jungle.

All I had was my trusty egg beaten

I carved through that thick

brush as fast as a jungle cat.

Still, the Boneknapper was right behind!


Iran up the side of a volcano

and courageously leapt across the fiery crater.

Then, deep within the burning volcano,

burst forth a giant hammerhead yak!

OK, wait a minute. Now youre saying

a giant hammerhead yak

leapt out of a fiery volcano and ate the Boneknapper?

You would've thought so, wouldn't you?

But the dragon got away again!

I knew that boney scoundrel
