Trivia

The Simpsons: Black Widower (1992) features a parody of this series and implies that it is a rip-off of The Simpsons (1989). But Jim Henson conceived of the idea before the "The Simpsons" aired. His idea was deemed too weird until the popularity of that series. See more »

Quotes

[Earl wants a raise]
B.P. Richfield: Sinclair, you dog. Twenty-five years you've been working here and I never thought you'd have the guts to take me on! But take me on, you do, mano e mano, man to man. That's guts-balls, Sinclair. I like a guy with guts-balls. LIKE HIM!
[slams the sides of his trailer]
B.P. Richfield: So I guess I'm gonna have to take your little ultimatum seriously.
Earl: Oh I do hope so, sir.

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.
