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 »
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 »
'Dinosaurs' was a great show, it really was. And not some copycat on 'The Simpsons.' I was quite young when the show began and ended, and it was an all time favorite of mine. I loved it b/c it was so funny. Many episodes had messages about our society today. Even though I was little, and there were some things I didn't get, I still remember those shows. Like this one episode where Earl, the dad, went and bought the two animals, considered delicacies, for his and Fran's anniversary. It turns out that they are the last of their kind, so Robbie tries to protect them. Sadly, Earl's boss eats them. But not before Robbie persuades them to reproduce and when Earl comes home with a heavy heart and trying to tell Robbie and tragic news, the adorable offspring hatch from their eggs. Or two episodes where Earl is arrested for bad parenting and the one with Robbie being head or the household. This show was good, but it was underrated and now, not even a decent number lousy fan site is out and about with it.
