Dinosaurs was a cutting edge comedy that was definitely before its time.
This cannot truly be considered animation nor a puppet show. Each character had two performers. The first was an actor in a dinosaur costume that did the visual. The second was a voice actor. This created a unique hybrid.
Add to this a writing team that was not afraid to make fun of itself. (Great scene - The family is watching Unsolved Mysteries when Robert Stack says, the next episode we will investigate why people watch this show when a much better show is on another network. --At that time Unsolved Mysteries was Dinosaur's competition.)
The show of course takes place during the Jurassic period and the dinosaurs rule the place like humans, while the humans are cavemen who are wild.
The first season was a summer show with five episodes. The second season was a full season with 24 episodes.
Let's hope that they release the last three seasons together!
This is a great show that adults will watch at one level, teenagers at another and kids at their own. What ever age, it will be enjoyed.
