Review

I'm very happy to say that I received my copy of the first "Denver, the Last Dinosaur" DVD today (6 October 2007). To answer some of your questions (Tridragon's question in particular), the entire "Denver" series (total of 52 episodes) WILL all be released on multiple DVDs throughout the next several months. This DVD of the first 10 episodes, including the one-hour pilot episode, does not disappoint in video and audio quality. Indeed, a great work of re-mastering in all respects. I used Sony's BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc/standard DVD player (which upconverts standard DVDs like this one very beautifully) with Sony's KDL-V32XBR2 Bravia LCD television (which was Imaging Science Foundation calibrated). The BD/DVD player was hooked up to Pioneer Elite's VSX-52 home theater receiver. I listened to this DVD using just the stereo mode (2.0 channels). I watched the pilot episode and "In the Chips". You'll be glad to know that the video quality is practically flawless. You will notice some film grain, but is never distracting. Considering these prints are nearly 20 years old, the re-mastering job was very well done and with great care. Watching this with the clarity it had, film grain and all, made for a viewing experience not only matched by remembering having watched the original broadcasts, but also an experience made even better than the broadcasts by revealing it's accurate colors and overall production qualities such as editing and the animation sequences, both the 2-D drawn sequences and Calico's 3-D rotoscoped fx sequences. The audio, which was originally a Dolby Stereo mix, is also rendered very well on this first "Denver" DVD effort. Voice characterizations come through cleanly and without distortion, and sound effects are very well rendered. The overall sound is robust and clean. I am very sure a subwoofer (which was not used in this eval) will make for even more convincing sounding bass (in scenes like rumbling volcanoes and roaring T-rex's). The music of Dale Schacker comes through with a very lively sounding presence. The stereo music is well-rendered, as are the stereo sound effects. The "ping-pong game" sequence on the pilot ep was a good example of good stereo separation in terms of sound effects, and overall the sound effects separation is good, if not a revelation. As for content, all the eps have the opening theme/opening titles AND the closing theme/end credits. All episodes are very well edited. Interestingly, only the pilot ep had the "commercial bumpers" throughout; the bumpers are not to be found on the remaining eps. Here's to a great start for "Denver" on DVD, and I look forward to receiving more DVDs of our "friend and a whole lot more" in the months ahead. Jodi --Jodi from Voltron.com Forums

"Denver the Last Dinosaur, he's your friend and a whole lot more"
I was overwhelemd with joy when I first saw that this was on DVD. It has been one of my most wanted TV shows to arrive on DVD and I found it. Denver the Last Dinosaur first premiered in 1988. It is a children's show filled with warmth, friendship and adventure. It's about a group of young teens in Los Angeles who stumble upon a dinosaur egg which hatches revealing a dinosaur whom they name Denver. Togethor, they have fun adventures, such as skateboarding down the streets of L.A. going to restaurants, messing around and playing music. They even go to prehistoric time by the use of the enchanted eggshells from Denver's egg. At the same time, the kids must also defend Denver from money-hungry scientists.

If you're a fan of classical cartoons from the 80s and 90s, I would recommend this title to you. You, you're kids and your family will certainly enjoy Denver the Last Dinosaur. This is a great show for children for it's one of the few animated shows that contain no violence.
Children will love Denver the Last Dinosaur and parents would love it for their kids for its non-violent adventures.

I remember Denver the Last Dinosaur from my childhood and I was so happy to feel like a kid again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Trip Back to Good Old Times February 1, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Denver the Last Dinosaur is one of those old-time cartoons that remains a fun ride for all ages. Despite the fact that the show is dated back to the late eighties and some of the jokes may not register with today's generation of children, it can be used as an object lesson to teach the fundamentals of good behavior and doing what is right, while still having fun. This is highly recommended for all parents and their children.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 times Better than Barney February 26, 2009
Format:DVD
When my son was young this was a TV show/cartoon. It was fun, upbeat and educational. They learned friendship, fun and it keep his attention. Every morning I put it on and got him up for school to Denver.

It had music, friendships and adventure all wrapped into one package.

I got these for my Grandchildren yet to be.
