Trivia

The Diplodocus is actually depicted incorrectly. At the time of the show paleontologists did believe the diplodocus' neck stood upright. However after re-examination during the 1990's it was discovered some of the neck bones where peiced together incorrectly on the diplodocus skeletons... Correcting the bones meant the diplodocus neck actually stuck out straight inline with spine and was a dinosaur that would not be able to stick it's neck up like similar species of Bracheosaurous etc. See more »

Bring Back Dino-Riders!!!
21 October 2005 | by TerryfanSee all my reviews

I don't know why Dino-Riders was one of those shows that never got the chance that it deserves. I mean Dino-Riders has such a cool idea for a TV Show. Having two groups being able to control Dinosaurs sounds Awesome! I only saw the first episode, and I was very little when I saw this show, But it was made to become one of the best cartoons shows ever made. I wish Dino-Riders went on for a few more seasons, and I wish Dino-Riders was on DVD. I would like to see Dino-Riders back on TV or someone bring back an new Dino-Riders Series. Dino-Riders had everything a true sci-fi fan and cartoon fan would want. A Pefect group of voice actors (Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Dan Gilvezan, Noelle North, and others) I watch this show because Peter Cullen And Frank Welker are two of my favorite voice actors. I love the music in Dino-Riders, because it match every part of the show. A great story about Two groups are war with each other.The Dino-riders and the Rulons are the groups that control and befriend the dinosaurs in their way. Bring Back Dino-Riders because it just ROCKS!!!
