Dinosaurs is an American children's sitcom television series that was originally broadcast on ABC from April 26, 1991 to July 20, 1994, but 7 episodes of Season 4 aired on Syndication from September 7 - October 19, 1994. The show, about the anthropomorphic dinosaurs (portrayed by puppets), was produced by Michael Jacobs Productions and Jim Henson Productions in association with Walt Disney Television and distributed by Buena Vista International, Inc.. The characters were designed by Henson team member Kirk Thatcher.

Why This Show Is Awesome and You Gotta Love It

  1. Memorable theme song.
  2. The concept of a dinosaur sitcom is a great and interesting one.
  3. Likable characters, such as Earl (the main protagonist), Baby Sinclair (deuteragonist), Fran Sinclair, Robbie Sinclair, Charlene Sinclair and Roy Hess
  4. The voice acting is decent.
  5. Pays homage to pop culture. For example, one episode has a Barney parody called "Blarney," and the other known as "Georgie."
  6. It ended Jim Henson's career on a high note.
  7. Good puppet/animatronic work.
  8. It deserves to have a music video for Baby Sinclair called "I'm The Baby, Gotta Love Me"
  9. Memorable quotes like “NOT THE MOMMA!
  10. Baby Sinclair has some hilarious and funny moments throughout the series.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. "License to Parent" is considered the worst episode of the series.
  2. In the last episode, Changing Nature, all the characters "disappeared", which is pretty dark and depressing. In fact, the ending is one of the most tragic TV finale of all time.

Trivia

  • It is now available to stream on Disney+ on January 29, 2021.
