If you identify yourself as a “90’s kid,” you surely remember both the Amanda show and Sypro the Dragon. The Amanda show was kind of an SNL for 12 year olds. It featured a variety of sketches, many of them recurring, like Judge Trudy and Blockblister.
It was hosted by the adorable Amanda Bynes. Now, Sypro the Dragon was equally adorable. Him and his friend Sparx the dragonfly fought against the Gnasty Gnorc and his minions. If you’ve experienced both, you may have noticed that the music for the “Wizard’s Peak” stage in Spyro the Dragon has an oddly familiar melody and instrumental to the Amanda show’s theme.
The two songs were composed by the same person; Stewart Copeland. Perhaps it is quite appropriate for both the TV show and the video game to contain the same upbeat and uplifting song; they both after all are light, fun and worth seeing even today.
