Editorial Reviews

Product Description

They're huge. They're pre-hysterical. The Sinclairs are back in their final two seasons of Earth-shaking fun as they face the challenges of everyday life in sixty million and 3 BC. Baby turns two - and into a total terror. Daddy Earl confronts his "diaperphobia." Charlene's theory that the world is round lands her in scholastic hot water. Robbie deals with overwhelming pubescent urges, and in the final controversial episode, the family's jumpin' Jurrassic lifestyle gets the big chill. The brainosauraus of Jim Henson, the award-winning comedy series brings state-of-the-art puppetry and audioanimatronics to the screen -- and a whole new meaning to the words "family fun." Add Seasons 3 and 4 to your collection of evolutionary entertainment - and get ready to rock your funny bones.

Families and civilizations are, on the most fundamental level, built on relationships. The third and fourth (final) seasons of the 1991 television series Dinosaurs delve deeply into the relationships between the individual members of the Sinclair dinosaur family while simultaneously tackling huge societal issues like sexism, rising medical costs, the negative influence of television and advertising, environmentalism and conservationism, and the modern relevance of faith and ritual to everyday life with fervency and an abundance of slapstick humor. Parents can't help but relate to the extreme characterization of Baby Sinclair as completely possessed by evil upon entering his "Terrible Twos" and will laugh hysterically at Baby's response to the ineffective "solutions" of Dr. Piaget, the babysitter, and his parents. Teenage rebellion and the angst of growing up are just as outrageously satirized in episodes like "The Son Also Rises" and "Charlene's Flat World" and Dinosaur writers poke fun at the debate about the effects of television and advertising on young children and society in virtually every episode. The complex issue of conservationism becomes all too personal to Earl in "If You Were a Tree" when he and a tree inadvertantly switch bodies and environmentalism becomes an intergalactic issue in "We Are Not Alone." Bonus features include seven never-before-seen-on-television episodes that deal with everything from the rituals of growing up to family bonding and the perils of materialism; optional audio commentary for the "Nature Calls" and "Into the Woods" episodes; a look at the incredibly funny, self-absorbed character of Baby with writer Kirk Thatcher, executive producer Brian Henson, and actor/puppeteer Kevin Clash; and a discussion about some of the causes behind the Dinosaurs series and how the program's format made it possible to address such far-reaching issues. Because Dinosaurs functions on dual levels, appealing both to children with its silly puppet antics and adults with its pointed social commentary, some parental guidance may be in order for children under 9 years. --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Best final episode of any series April 8, 2007
By Jayfest
In my opinion, the final episode of "Dinosaurs", entitled "Changing Nature", is the best final episode of ANY series ever shown on television. It gives its own comedic and touching version of why the Dinosaurs became extinct, and it has an obvious relevance to the current environmental situation. Unfortunately, it appears as if the episodes are presented on the DVD not in production order, but in release order. In other words, there are several originally unaired episodes which are presented on the disc after "Changing Nature". If you buy this set, which I heartily recommend, do yourself a favor and watch "Changing Nature" last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mega funny bone March 5, 2007
This is a great show for kids and adults alike. I watched it growing up and even recorded a few episodes on the old VHS, ah! But now it is so much nicer to have the entire collection on DVD. And they don't string out the seasons like so many other shows where you have to buy them one at a time. Nice. So here is a list of seasons three and four episodes.
Season 3
1. Nature Calls
2. Baby Talk
3. Network Genius
4. The Discovery
5. Little Boy Boo
6. Germ Warefare
7. Hungry for Love
8. License to Parent
9. Charlene's Flat World
10. Wilderness Weekend
11. The Son also Rises
12. Getting to Know You
13. Green Card
14. Out of the Frying Pan
15. Steroids to Heaven
16. Honey, I Miss the Kids
17. Swamp Music
18. Dirty Dancin'
19. If I Were a Tree
20. We Are Not Alone
21. Charlene and Her Amazing Humans
22. The Clip Show II

Season 4
1. Monster Under the Bed
2. Earl, Don't Be a Hero
3. The Greatest Story Ever Sold
4. Driving Miss Ethyl
5. Earl's Big Jackpot
6. Terrible Twos
7. Changing Nature
8. Scent of a Reptile
9. Earl and Pearl
10. Life in the Faust Lane
11. Variations on a Theme Park
12. Working Girl
13. Into the Woods
14. Georgie Must Die

Well that's all folks, no seriously this is a great series and I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Touching Finale May 11, 2007
I always liked this show when ABC broadcast it in the 90's, but it seemed ABC did not have faith in Henson's team. The program kept moving time slots, and there were long gaps between seasons (could this be due to the complexity of production?) Anyway, it seems "Changing Nature" was clearly meant to be a SERIES finale. It is one of the most touching you will see, and truly a revelation (I didn't catch it upon it's initial airing).

We also have a few episodes that were never aired by ABC (as a special treat), one of them a funny parody of Barney the Dinosaur. For this reason alone, fans who taped every episode MUST purchase this set for a COMPLETE collection. You also get two commentaries and two featurettes.

Dinosaurs (like the Simpsons), is one of those shows kids love, and parents appreciate because the humor is smart, not condescending.

4.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT SHOW... Where's Baby's Music Video???? May 9, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In all the product info for Season 3/4 of DINOSAURS, including Disney's press releases and their own website, the music video "I'm the Baby Gotta Love Me" is listed as a special added feature... Try to find it. On the actual packaging for the disc, it refers to a featurette called "I'm the Baby, Gotta Love Me" which is a nice bit about the Baby character, but the music video is not included...

I made a call to Disney's DVD department. I was put on hold for a while and then told: "the music video was announced in early publicity as being under consideration as a possible extra, but it was decided to include the featurette instead of the music video." I pointed out that the music video is clearly mentioned on Disney's own website. Their response: "If you'd like a refund or exchange...."

Put on Disc 1 and play an episode called "Little Boy Boo." At the end of the episode is... the music video of Baby Sinclair singing "I'm the Baby." It's a catchy song and the visuals are a lot of fun. This is up to the Henson creative team's usual high standards. However, you can't say the same for the Disney DVD division. There is no chapter stop for the musc video. You have to scan back from the end credits to find it ..

So obviously, there is confusion and miscommunication within Disney's DVD marketing department. They announced the Baby's Music Video as a feature but were quite confused about where it was... or whether it was there at all.

I think the Jim Henson Company's work on DINOSAURS is absolutely brilliant. Smart. clever, thoughtful, great looking and hilarious. Incredibly rich with layers of clever details, DINOSAURS is entertaining on more than one level. The more you watch it, the more you discover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third & Fourth Season Complete February 12, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I assume that the title will be updated shortly to read "Dinosaurs: The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons." This should entail 22 episodes from Season 3, and 14 episodes from Season 4. 36 episodes on 4 discs sounds about right! (I've already preordered mine!) A great series!
