Pete’s Dragon (1977)

In New England in the early 20th century, Pete (Sean Marshall) is a nine-year-old orphan escaping from his brutal adoptive parents, the Gogans, with his only friend, a cartoon dragon named Elliott.

They successfully escape to (the fictitious eastern seacoast town) Passamaquoddy, Maine, and live with Nora (Helen Reddy), a lighthouse keeper, and her father, Lampie (Mickey Rooney).

Elliott is sought for medicinal purposes by the corrupt Dr Terminus (Jim Dale).
