Hasbro always did botch the dragons who weren't Spike, (up until they finally botched him).  I'll take Dragon Tales anyday.

I liked the dragon bandits from "Spike's Search" for what they were, a bunch of thugs.

Let me explain further. I like them because the episode made sure to explain they weren't bad because they were dragons, were bad because they were thuggish bandits and their behavior should not be used to judge the entire dragon race.  You know, the opposite of what FiM did in "Dragon Quest" which essentially said Spike was so lucky to have been raised by civilized ponies and not those brutish dragons punctuated by Spike telling Peewee he would teach him how to be a pony.

I agree the moral was better. I'm just sayin they weren't very good thugs, because it didn't take much to send them packing. They were goofy and weren't very good depictions of western dragons. There's been far better examples of dragons in animated media.

They were a gang of bandits more than they were dragons.  That was the point.  They acted all tough when they had the upper hand and could terrorize people into either fleeing or caving to their demands.  When someone stood their ground, they crumpled.  And the coda gave us hope there are other dragons out there who aren't bandits, but the show wasn't renewed so we'll never know.

Still better than the band-aid on a bullet wound (with the bullet still in there) FiM has been trying.
