The Dinosaurs TV show is now on Disney Plus, so it's a solid time to check out the full series. In this review, James checks out one of his favorite show's from the 90s. Dinosaurs is an American family sitcom television series that aired on ABC from 1991 through 1994, and reruns were shown on the Disney channel and eventually on their streaming service "Disney+." The show, about a family of anthropomorphic dinosaurs (portrayed by puppets), was produced by Michael Jacobs Productions and Jim Henson.

  • To my memory. Baby switch episode "didn't clear it up". They accepted the baby the raced as theirs. I'm pretty sure that the episode with clear on that they were in fact Swapped.

  • cheers for the video - another sitcom where the whole cast dies? each season of the BBC's blackadder ends with the whole cast dying, the next season picking up with their descendants a century or so later, the "over the top" sequence at the end of the final season "blackadder goes forth" is one of saddest, and best, moments in BBC TV.

  • The show was obviously a monumental amount of work, the show really fell flat for me. The writing, I found, missed the mark and other than “not da mama’ it’s pretty much a quoteless show. Also, the formula and characters are SO typical (I know that the writers chose it to be this way) it makes it hard to watch.

  • The baby is the best part of the entire show imo. Without him there a lot less laughter and jokes. I wish they bring the show back or do new family. They could done show around Roy, Earls best friend. But yes this was one my fav shows and imo I wish they bring it back. How they tie into sincars family. I don’t know. But they could do another family or something or say they didn’t die. Miss the show. Dinosaurs can be watch now on Disney + for anybody who does not know.

  • I remember my Dad loving this show, though I was a bit too young for it at the time (1-4 yrs old). All I really remember is the finale (how could anyone forget _that_), "I'm the baby!", and "We're gonna need another Timmy." With infinite time, I'd definitely go back and check it out.

    • I know the entire cast it and die in Roseanne but Dan died and the entire last few seasons was a dream. And I think the last episode is her realizing it was all a dream and that he had been dead and she had use this as a false reality.

  • all the members of the Sinclair family are different species, earl is a megalosaurus, fran is an allosaurus, robbie is a hypsilophodon, Charlene is a protoceratops, baby is said to be a megalosaurus and ethyl is an edmontonia, obviously all of theses species don't fit or make much sense

  • I cant think of many sitcoms that have actual sad endings like this. with shows like martin or fresh prince you are mostly just sad their wont be anymore new episodes, but atleast you know the chars are still alive and continuing their adventures in their respective sitcom universe. But this you are sad because we all know what happened to the dinosaurs. Its even sadder when you grow to like the characters after the various character developments from the series.

It still makes me uncomfortable to look at in a way no other media does. I feel like everybody is in on a joke where they pretend this isn't the case.

  • It truly does not matter what the topic is, sexuality, or mary J use, the issue is authoritarian versus libertarian. But then we need to distinguish libertarianism in the US and from the world. Popular libertarians in the US are Anarcho-capitalists which are equal to fuedalists, while anarchists are opposed to capitalist organization based of the idea that the working class ought to have a equal say in the production of goods.
