Very Underrated Cartoon, 4 June 2003
Author: Steven Galloway ( from Greensboro, NC

I personally liked "Valley of the Dinosaurs", and for the record, the Butler family did *not* arrive in a plane as a previous poster wrote, but in a rubber raft while on a trip down the Amazon (I believe). A whirlpool sucked them into a land that time forgot--not that different from the live-action "Land of the Lost", which I also liked.

"VOTD" was to me, underrated because it was very educational as well as adventurous. I learned a thing or two about submarines, paddleboats, air pressure, as well as expanding sticks of wood that could split a cliff! I think somebody from H-B actually did some reasearch!

The Butler family, along with Garak's family, was always barely staying ahead of the dinosaurs that wanted to, say we say, feast on them (at least the carnivores, that is). I enjoyed the ways how they could get out of their predicaments. I recalled that me and my mother enjoyed the cartoon very much when I was around ten. Yes, Garak's family, for a "backward caveman's", spoke English, but so what? It was a fun show to watch! And before Daria Morgendoffer, there was Katie Butler. Now, *there* was a girl who could hang with Daria in the sarcastic department! She could give a funny crack even during the most dangerous of situations, and I laughed! Good show, that was...
