This claymation-live action mix casts Fred Savage as a boy writing a report on dinosaurs. The best parts are of course the scenes of the dinosaurs, all done in claymation. I really liked the "Rex and Herb" scene. "Dinosaurs!" shows that - contrary to the shorts on "Mystery Science Theater 3000" - educational films do not have to be boring. Of course, I wouldn't expect Will Vinton to make a boring movie. It's the perfect balance between silly and informative, with a lot of clever stuff. It's too bad that Will Vinton eventually got fired from his own studio after Nike's Phil Knight took it over.

So yes, do some detective work.
