Jim Henson originally got the idea of a live action show featuring animatronic Dinosaurs after being impressed by the technology his Creature Shop was developing for the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. When the show went into production the same technology was then used to create the Dinosaurs, as Jim Henson envisioned. Many of the Ninja Turtle suit actors even worked as various Dinosaur suit actors for the series. 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 »
Outstanding, ranking with "best family entertainment aired"
I was thrilled to see "the Dinosaurs" being re-published on DVD. As an adult of 62 years I know cartoon characters are a little far fetched for an interest. I am, as an adult of 62 years, not only fond of the Dinosaurs but "just plain crazy about them". The characters and moral teaching done within all of the episodes was outstanding and human and highly entertaining. Sitting here writing, I am not speaking of a single episode but of every episode that was aired. I can't think of a better teaching tool for values or better entertainment for children or adults. There is no blood and guts, no bad language, wonderful animation, no dysfunctional family but real togetherness all done in the most heartwarming ways. I am remembering so many of the stories as I write and can't fault a single one.
I purchased all of the tapes I could find and hope to add all of the upcoming releases on DVD, I wouldn't miss adding them to my collection. I just can't speak highly enough of every single episode I was ever privileged to see. My rating is a 10. RSBlain
