Trivia The program received much criticism for presenting theories as solid facts. The creators argued that while they were making a documentary, their goal was also to entertain, and since the theories about these prehistoric creatures always change, they couldn't possibly have made a TV show that accurately depicts what the world of the dinosaurs may have been like. And they were right - many theories presented in the show have by now been declared outdated and incorrect. See more »
Goofs A recurring animation error throughout all of the episodes is how the body parts and muscles of the CG animals clip through each other while moving. Wrinkles and skin patterns appear and disappear, and sometimes strange bulges stick out of the animals, seemingly moving independently from the surrounding flesh. This kind of error is perhaps the most noticeable on the shoulder region of the Diplodocus, as the shoulder muscles and the upper part of their front legs "merge" and separate repeatedly at each step.
