Trivia

It is a popular, though incorrect, belief that the Rulon character, Rasp was voiced by Chris Latta. To the extent that it was at one time even reported in "ToyFare" magazine. In fact, Latta had no involvement in the series at all. There are still conflicting reports as to who actually provided the voice for Rasp, it is believed to be either Frank Welker or Charlie Adler.

Bring Back Dino-Riders!!!
21 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know why Dino-Riders was one of those shows that never got the chance that it deserves. I mean Dino-Riders has such a cool idea for a TV Show. Having two groups being able to control Dinosaurs sounds Awesome! I only saw the first episode, and I was very little when I saw this show, But it was made to become one of the best cartoons shows ever made. I wish Dino-Riders went on for a few more seasons, and I wish Dino-Riders was on DVD. I would like to see Dino-Riders back on TV or someone bring back an new Dino-Riders Series. Dino-Riders had everything a true sci-fi fan and cartoon fan would want. A Pefect group of voice actors (Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Dan Gilvezan, Noelle North, and others) I watch this show because Peter Cullen And Frank Welker are two of my favorite voice actors. I love the music in Dino-Riders, because it match every part of the show. A great story about Two groups are war with each other.The Dino-riders and the Rulons are the groups that control and befriend the dinosaurs in their way. Bring Back Dino-Riders because it just ROCKS!!!
