Trivia

In his blog, Greg Aronowitz claims that he originally designed the dinosaurs as lankier and younger-looking - "more like teenagers, with a kind of Grease (1978) feel" - before settling for a "bulkier and older looking" design. See more »

Quotes

Jamie: They thought about everything they'd been through: the perilous swamp, the treacherous tower, the darkness of rainbow cavern. They stood together exhausted from their adventure. Rex stared into her eyes for a long time, then his great green lips curled sadly back from his fangs and his voice was soft as he said "It's too bad it couldn't have worked out between us, but at least we'll always have Tar Town."
Timmy: You've got to be pulling my tail... THAT'S your idea of a dinosaur story?

Haven't seen this in YEARS!
3 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite movies when I was a little kid. I was starting to think I'd imagined the whole movie. My parents don't remember it, and I'd never ask my friends if they ever saw it. Now that I look back I realize just how silly the whole thing was. I guess when I was little I didn't really care about the plot or the acting. All I cared about was watching that T-Rex and his buddies. The evil dinosaur always scared the heck outta me, and I always had nightmares about him. It made me sad to learn that the guy who was Rex died a while ago. All kids watch today is this cartoon crap on cartoon network. What happened to shows like this?
