As a kid Dinosaucers was the ultimate high! I'm 24 years old now and I have no idea what year I came across this show. The year reads 1987 on IMDb, but if I watched this show at the age of 5, and it stuck with me all these years, then Dinosaucers has to be the greatest show of all time.
From what I remember the show is based on a group of "space" dinosaurs who come to earth somehow and meet with teenagers. There were two factions of dino's. The good dino's were represented with blue colors, the bad dino's with red colors. IMDb's plot outline states that the good dino's were represented by Herbivores. I'm no dino expert, but the leader of the good dino's was an Allosauras who is considered a relative of the T-Rex.
The good guy's consisted of the aforementioned Allo, a Triceratops, Brontosauras, an Ichyasauras (dolphin like dino), and some female bird who I remember having a crush on. The dolphin and the bird had a thing for each other if I remember correctly.
The Bad dino's consisted of a T-Rex, A triceratops creature that had spikes all along his head (being a former huge dino buff, its sad I cant remember what the species is and I refuse to google it..lol) I also forget what the bronto equivalent was but he had a crest on his head. I'm sure I'm forgetting one or two dino's on the good side and a bunch of the bad side. Oh well.
My favorite part of the show was when they would hit this button they had on their space suits in order to turn into their ancient form of dinosaurs. They would be just as huge as their ancestors and they would use this power sparingly as I recall being disappointed for many an episode.
My favorite episode and maybe the only I remember cuz I used to have it on VHS waaaay back in the day is the one where they for some reason play a baseball game. Good vs. Bad obviously, its kinda funny thinking about it now. Their supposed to be battling over the world, yet they have time for friendly game of baseball.
A Great show, Great memories (that are fading c'mon VHS episodes where are you!)
