Watch Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs is a puppet-based situation comedy that aired on the American network ABC in the early 1990s. The series was a co-production between Jim Henson Productions and Walt Disney Television. Dinosaurs takes place billions of years in the past, when dinosaurs ruled the earth, went to work, watched television, and took care of their families. The family of anthropomorphic dinosaurs the show focuses on are the Sinclairs. The father, Earl (voiced by Stuart Pankin), works as a tree pusher for the mega-corporation known as WESAYSO. His wife Fran (Jessica Walter) is a homemaker and takes care of their three children.

The oldest of the kids, Robbie (Jason Willinger), constantly questions Earl and Fran on the dinosaurs prehistoric ways. His younger sister Charlene (Sally Struthers) is very materialistic and needs to have the latest fashions in her closet. The youngest child, simply known as Baby (voiced by Kevin Clash), is hatched in the show's premiere episode. While he loves his mother, who he calls The Mama, he doesn't respect Earl, who he calls Not The Mama. Baby is continuously shown hitting his father over the head with one object or another.

Episodes of Dinosaurs comically touched on a number of issues during its run. In one installment, Robbie decides to become a vegetarian rather than continue to be a carnivore, as the rest of his family is. In another episode, the subject of religion is touched upon as the ruling body of Elders decides to forego science in lieu of a new spiritual belief. In the final episode of the series, environmentalism was the main subject as numerous mishaps by WESAYSO resulted in the start of the Ice Age.

Executive produced by Michael Jacobs and Brian Henson, Dinosaurs premiered in April 1991 as part of ABC's TGIF series of shows. The series ended after four seasons in July of 1994.
