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

The Baby character on the show was often referred to as "the baby" during the first two seasons, but was sometimes called "Junior" by various members of the family in a vain attempt to give him an official name. Finally, in a 1992 episode, Baby Sinclair is taken to the Cave of the Elders where he is given his official name: Ooh Ooh Ah Ah I'm Dying You Idiot Sinclair. The name was later taken back in exchange for his new official name: Baby Sinclair. See more »

Quotes

Fran: How much can a tutor cost, Earl?
Earl: The same amount as a 90 inch TV screen, because that's the way my life works.

Crazy Credits

The Jim Henson Productions logo at the end of the credits features a pterodactyl that does something different from episode to episode (from a small assortment of 3 things, not something unique each time). See more »

An absolute ABC classic!
22 January 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

"DINOSAURS," is my opinion, is an absolute ABC classic! I don't think I've seen every episode, but I still enjoyed it. It's hard to say which episode was my favorite. However, I think it was always funny when a mishap occurred. I always laughed at that. Despite the fact that it was a short-lived series, it was nice that all the main characters stayed with the show throughout its entire run. It seems that no one stays with a show throughout its entire run. Everyone always gave a good performance, the production design was spectacular, the characters and everything about them were well-designed, and the writing was always very strong. In conclusion, I hope they bring it back on the air for fans of the show to see.
