High tech scene stealing special effects by the Chiodo Brothers
3 May 2003 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the summer of 1996, before I was waiting for TINY TOON ADVENTURES on Nickelodeon. But before that show they said that this show will come first after AAAHH!! REAL MONSTERS! or ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK. I was excited about watching the 70's version. Because when I was a little kid. It came on CBS after THE CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY SHOW, there was the 70's version, and when it first came on, it scared me when I was little. But I did find it scary (perhaps its either the dinos or the cave or rock that looks likes a skull). I told my parents to put on a tape. They did it. Years past and it was spring 1993. I was watching the AMAZING APES, then there was a commerical advertising the show. I got curioused and I was a bit candied by the dinos. Summer 1993, due to the JURASSIC PARK boom, there were a lot of books that gave refernces to dinosaurs. I got one book called "When Dinosaurs ruled the Screen" (1992). I went to the chapter called "Yabba Dabba Doo", which talked about dinosaurs on television. I saw the stills from the 70's LAND OF THE LOST and a still form the 90's LAND OF THE LOST (and I was surprised that the new Sleestaks that looked something off from a DINOSAURS episode as if Jim Henson designed them, but the Chiodo brothers did it). The 70's Sleestaks were funny looking and surprising! Big eyes, big feet. Wow. In the summer of 1991 or 1992, I saw an ad of the 90's version on ABC, the dinos looked like the dinosaurs in dino issue of RANGER RICK. And the ape-man looked like something off from PLANET OF THE APES. I saw the show in the Summer of 1996 on Nickelodeon, and I ended up watching the 90's version. Pays some slight homage to the original. I didn't see the Sleestaks. But the only characters that came back was the ape man and Grumpy (who looks kind of scientific looking but the puppetery scenes remind me of the sitcom, DINOSAURS). I saw one episode where it referenced a Sid and Marty Krofft show of the 70's. Like DINOSAURS, it ran from 1991 to 1994. I wish I could see the 70's version, because it got referenced in DEXTER'S LABORATORY and THE FAMILY GUY. Children of the 90's will find this a roller coaster ride. But for anyone who grew up with the 70's version, will know that the Krofft brother had suellied their great works of the olden days. See other comments of this show. I wish I could see the 70's version. The old and new version has afew thing in common: Great special effects fun for dino-fans, stop-motion fans, and the whole family! Need I say more.
