Captain New Eyes travels back in time and feeds dinosaurs his Brain Grain cereal, which makes them intelligent and nonviolent. They agree to go to the Middle Future (this era) in order to grant the wishes of children in New York city. They are to meet Dr. Bleeb of the Museum of Natural History, but get side-tracked with their new friends and run into the Captain's evil brother, Professor Screw Eyes, who has other plans for the dinosaurs.

When Professor Neweyes (Walter Cronkite

It seems strange that Buster (the little bird Rex tells his story to) would even question the fact that he is interacting with an animal intelligent enough to speak and play golf (albeit one believed to be a member of an extinct reptilian species), considering he and his family also somehow have the ability to speak. While Rex explains very early on how his own humanistic abilities came to be - by consuming a cereal that is designed and later shown to increase intelligence, personality and overall development in animals - those of the little bird remain unexplained throughout the entire film. Was some of that cereal added to the bird feeders in Central Park offscreen? There's no additional explanation as to how Rex can communicate with another animal that otherwise is not known to have the same abilities. See more

Instead of showing the traditional Amblin logo (the one of Elliot going on the bicycle and flying up to the moon) the logo says, "Amblimation" and Fievel (from "An American Tail") is pushing it, then he stands next to it and his hat falls down over his eyes. See more
