If I were to ask you to think back to your childhood and the shows you used to love to watch on TV, I bet you would forget about Dinosaurs’ (TV Series 1991–1994). It was one of those random shows we didn’t particularly look forward to coming on the box but when it did we always throughly enjoyed it.
The show followed the lives of the Dinosaur family who were kind of like a pre historic version of Roseanne.
The show has been off our screens since 1994 but before then we were treated to 65 episodes in total.
According to reports from the time, the show was actually dreamed up by the genius puppeteer Jim Henson, but he died the year before it premiered on USA TV. “Jim Henson dreamed up the show’s basic concept about three years ago,” said a New York Times article in April 1991. “‘He wanted it to be a sitcom with a pretty standard structure, with the biggest differences being that it’s a family of dinosaurs and their society has this strange toxic life style,’ said Brian Henson (his son).
But until The Simpsons took off, said Alex Rockwell, a vice president of the Henson organization, ‘people thought it was a crazy idea.’
Well now thanks to Youtuber Benjamin Roberts, we can all now remember the Dinoaur family because he has taken some clips from the show and mashed them up with Hypnotize by The Notorious B.I.G (1997).
The end result works so well, I just had to share it with you.
