"Walking with Dinosaurs" Time of the Titans (TV Episode 1999) Poster

Goofs

Character error 

The narrator claims that the Sauropods went into decline during the Jurassic, but that is not exactly true. While they received competition from other dinosaurs in the Northern Hemisphere, they were still very successful overall, especially in the Southern Hemisphere, and that was when their largest species evolved.

Crew or equipment visible 

After the Anurognathus flies off from the Diplodocus' back in the close-view shot, a strange white object is very clearly visible in the upper right corner of the screen.

Factual errors 

The Ornitholestes makes loud vocalizations while swallowing food. It is impossible to do this at the same time.

The narrator states that Diplodocus can grow to over 40 m long. In reality, Diplodocus barely reached 30 m. Scientists now believe that a similar dinosaur, Seismosaurus was actually a larger species of Diplodocus, but even then, the animal wouldn't have grown so big.

The crest of the Allosaurus is shown directly above its eyes, but in reality, they were situated lower, in front of the eyes, and they had a pair of smaller crests running down their snout. This was corrected in later follow-ups of the program, but it's an error here.

During the attack scene at the end of the episode, the flesh on the side of the Allosaurus' tail moves in unison with its leg. While in reality, the thigh muscles of these animals probably did connect to the tail, the animations shows it shifting position unrealistically, as if the muscle and skin detached from the tail bones.

The front right leg of both Brachiosaurus move very choppily.

Sometimes when the Diplodocus open their mouths, their upper teeth "stretch" down below the line of the upper lip. When their jaw is closed, the teeth "shrink" back to being normal-length. It seems the jaw-moving animation somehow got carried over to some of their teeth. This error also appears in the special The Ballad of Big Al.

The leaves and branches disturbed by the Diplodocus hatchlings, as they make their way into the woods, are not actually under their feet but several feet away from them - they are apparently disturbed by nothing, as if the computer generated animals had been animated in the wrong place.

The mother Diplodocus' "egg tube" is clearly made out of rubber, as it bends and bounces after laying the egg.

When the baby Diplodocus are fleeing into the forest, one of them walks over a small mound, but the mound is transparent, so you can partially see the dinosaur walking "under the earth".

When the baby Diplodocus are inspecting the skeleton, there is a line on the top of the screen where the background is visible through the foreground objects, revealing that they've been added into the shot digitally and cropped incorrectly.

When the surviving Diplodocus reach the plains after the forest fire, two Allosaurus are resting nearby, but they don't affect the plants under their heads and their shadows are shaped as if the ground under them were flat.

After the adult Diplodocus fells the second tree, it begins moving into the forest and its head clips through some foliage that's been incorrectly composited into the shot.

In a couple of shots focusing on the Brachiosaurus, the foreground plants are actually just the same plant copy&pasted several times.
