Skylanders Unite! is the pilot episode of the Skylanders Academy television series.
The cadets come together for graduation day, but Spyro will need to overcome his bad attitude and big ego to join his friends as a Skylander.
The episode begins with the narrator introducing the viewers to the world of Skylands. A purple egg hatches into a baby dragon named Spyro, who wanders away from the nest and encounters three evil Greebles. The Greebles plan on eating Spyro, but the baby dragon defeats his enemies by breathing fire on the Greeble leader and knocking around another Greeble senseless. The third Greeble promptly admits defeat, with Spyro cheering for his own victory. A tall, old wizard known as Master Eon then approaches Spyro, having witnessed his efforts and coaxes him over with a half-eaten hot dog as a peace offering. Seeing how special Spyro is, the old wizard holds the baby dragon in his arms and carries him out of the forest.
