Another cut scene from the domestic release featured Timmy's mom and dad at the their convention with a roomful of scientists all holding oranges in wonder after a successful teleportation exercise. Mom is on the phone trying to contact Timmy while Dad basks in the glow of his success. The funny scene was one of the director's favorites. See more »
They thought about everything they'd been through: the perilous swamp, the treacherous tower, the darkness of rainbow cavern. They stood together exhausted from their adventure. Rex stared into her eyes for a long time, then his great green lips curled sadly back from his fangs and his voice was soft as he said "It's too bad it couldn't have worked out between us, but at least we'll always have Tar Town."
You've got to be pulling my tail... THAT'S your idea of a dinosaur story?

I watched this as a kid and for the longest time could not remember the name of this movie only the plot. Finally I found the name and after another year I finally found a copy. This movie is extremely dated by this point and rather campy but it is still a lot of fun. There are numerous references to other movies throughout and rather humorous attempts at dinosaur related jokes and retorts at the beginning of the movie. Those painful jokes thankfully die off once the actual action gets started and the kids develop some character beyond being obsessed with their show. Almost everyone gets some time to grow and while the effects are a little sorry, it can be forgiven considering when it was made. There are a few sexual ententes on the extended edition but anyone under the age of 14 is unlikely to notice just like with some Disney movies.
This movie is extremely hard to find and I doubt it ever came out on DVD but if you see it somewhere and want to harken back to your childhood you could do a hell of a lot worse!
