Storyline

The Dinosaurs are an animatronics stone-age working-class family created by Jim Henson for Disney. Incredibly overweight, even for a dinosaur, Earl Sinclair is married to Fran and tries/fails to support 14-year-old valley girl Charlene, 16-year-old Robbie (whose crest eventually turns into a mohawk and gets dyed purple), widowed, cranky Grandma Ethel, and terrible-twos Baby, the true master of the house. Sharp social commentary is featured surprisingly often; Earl is a tree-pusher for the Wesayso Development Corp., which regularly implements schemes to screw their workers even more and destroy the world for marginal profit increment. Chilled but live prey are kept in the refrigerator and are helpful when you can't find the milk, and caveman humans make occasional appearances as wild animals and pets. Written by Dave Blake

Trivia

There was plans at one point early on to use the animatronic suits made for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Bart Simpson to appear in the show, most likely as a show seen on the T.V within the show, but due to copyright where not able to be implemented. See more »

Crazy Credits

Although the credits list actors/puppeteers for the characters individually in the credits, the Howard Handupme newscaster character, despite being in multiple episodes, is never listed separately and credited directly (presumably his portrayer(s) is/are listed under the "other actors" credits).

One of the greatest shows ever
2 February 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I'm still wondering why they ever decided to cancel this great show. It had great production value (those dinosaurs look really great, and this is pre-CGI) and it's one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. I still enjoy watching the reruns on German TV.
