The "Month of the Dragon" Sweepstakes was a sweepstakes held by Cartoon Network's Toonami block on Friday, September 18, 1998. The promo for this sweepstakes instructed viewers to watch the Toonami broadcast, from 4:00-6:00 PM, and look for the toll-free number given by Spyro during commercial breaks. During the broadcast, 100 callers were chosen at random as 2nd prize winners and received a copy of Spyro the Dragon for the PlayStation. Of these 100 2nd prize winners, 5 were randomly selected as grand prize winners and were awarded a PlayStation game console, in addition to the copy of Spyro the Dragon which they had already won.


  • 100 2nd prize winners received a copy of Spyro the Dragon for the PlayStation.
  • 5 grand prize winners received a PlayStation game console in addition to the copy of Spyro the Dragon.


  • This was Toonami's fourth sweepstakes.
  • This sweepstakes was sponsored by Sony.
  • Spyro the Dragon was released in North America on September 9, 1998.
  • Unlike what the name "Month of the Dragon" would suggest, this sweepstakes only lasted one day.
  • The naming of the sweepstakes probably had something to do with the newest addition to the Toonami lineup, Dragon Ball Z, which was added on August 31, 1998.
