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

Very little merchandise was created for this show. Only a handful of small plastic figurines where produced that where given away with McDonald's Happy Meals, and also a Baby Sinclair plush doll -- all quite rare to come by now. See more »

Quotes

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).

Fantastic, this was one of the funniest show on TV shame they don't make them anymore!
5 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

This show was fantastic, really funny with the baby being the funniest character, he was always hitting Earl Sinclair on the the head with a frying pan and saying "Not the Mamma". Its just a shame the cancelled it and you can't get the videos anymore.
