This show follows the life of a family of dinosaurs, living in a modern world. They have televisions, refrigerators, et cetera. The only humans around are cavemen, who are viewed as pets and wild animals.
Ensemble cast of off-the-wall Warner Brothers characters, appearing in a wide variety of roles. Mainly staring the Warner Siblings Wakko, Yakko, and Dot, who were created by the WB Studios ... See full summary »
Tony Micelli, a retired baseball player, becomes the housekeeper of Angela Bower, an advertising executive in New York. Together they raise their kids, Samantha Micelli and Jonathan Bower, with help from Mona Robinson, Angela's man-crazy mother.
The Dinosaurs are an animatronics stone-age working-class family created by Jim Henson for Disney. Incredibly overweight, even for a dinosaur, Earl Sinclair (Stuart Pankin) is married to Fran (Jessica Walter) and tries and fails to support fourteen-year-old valley girl Charlene (Sally Struthers), sixteen-year-old Robbie (Jason Willinger) (whose crest eventually turns into a mohawk and gets dyed purple), widowed, cranky Grandma Ethyl Phillips (Florence Stanley), and terrible-twos Baby Sinclair (John Kennedy and Kevin Clash), the true master of the house. Sharp social commentary was featured surprisingly often. Earl is a tree-pusher for the Wesayso Development Corp., which regularly implements schemes to screw their workers even more and destroy the world for marginal profit increment. Chilled, but live prey, are kept in the refrigerator and are helpful when you can't find the milk, and caveman humans make occasional appearances as wild animals and pets.Written by
The Baby character was called "the baby" or Junior during the first two seasons. In season two, episode twenty-one, "And the Winner Is ...", Baby Sinclair is taken to the Cave of the Elders, where he is given his official name "Ooh Ooh Ah Ah I'm Dying You Idiot Sinclair". The name was later exchanged for his new official name: "Baby Sinclair". See more »
Good morning, my family who loves me.
Not the mama.
All right, that ends right now. I've had it up to here with this "not the mama". I am not "not the nama", I'm your daddy, and you only get one, buster, and that's what you're gonna call me. Daddy. Now say "Daddy".
[Baby still refuses]
Okay, all right, all right. Say "da".

They forgot to make this show suck!
I have a major bone to pick with "Dinosaurs". As it appears to be a kids' show, why did the producers forget to make it totally suck?! After all, there is an unwritten rule that says kids and their parents should not be able to watch and enjoy the same shows. With the exception of this show and "The Simpsons", I have noticed that kids' TV must be terrible, broadly written and annoying--such as with shows like "That's So Raven", "Hannah Montana" and the like. Shame on the creators of "Dinosaurs" to have imaginative characters, LOTS of inside jokes for adults, great Henson-created costumes and FUN! However, since the show only lasted two seasons, it appeared if some big-wigs at ABC realized their mistake and promptly canceled the show. Good for you--as this will insure insipid programming for our kids.
