A person told me of a movie or tv special that was apart of a segment by Disney called "After School
Special(s)".  It was about a boy who came across an abandoned amusement park
wherein he finds a mechanical dragon.  This machine is apparently alive and
requests that the boy complete him.  Could you help me find it?

Doesn't ring a bell...But if you substitute "Disney" for "Henson" and "abandoned amusement park" for "F/X studio" you sort of have "Monster Maker" (1989)....

i'll look into it.  Heson does sound more likely to be correct as I remember the dragon being a complex puppet

I think Frank is correct in saying that the film requested is "Monster Maker".

It is certainly Monster Maker.  For years I had searched this exact film out thinking it was part of the Henson show where Henson studios would present little one hour stories.  Finally found out about a year ago that the dragon one is actually Monster Maker.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
