Movie InfoStandard plot conventions fill out this tale of the discovery of a hidden colony of brontosaurs still alive in an African jungle. William Katt and Sean Young play Peace Corps volunteers who try to protect the creatures from villain Dr. Eric Kiviat (Patrick McGoohan), a greed-driven scientist intent on capturing the mother dinosaur while killing her mate.

Critic Reviews for Baby - Secret of the Lost Legend
Baby's faintly reptilian eyes are dead. And with them dies a lot of our belief.
Director B.W.L. Norton surrounds the sweetness with a heavy, crude, and far too realistically rendered action plot that effectively cancels out whatever warmth the film manages to generate.
Though not as wonderful as it might have been, this film is a must for Disney fans. Typical of the studio's films, it tugs at your heart while making you laugh.
Even if your children like dinosaurs, don't let them be exposed to the offensive, insensitive, intolerably anti-humanist and racist propagandizing that is draped around them in this film. No plot, no heart, no soul.
Sappy family stuff about a bland little dinosaur and his very boring keepers.
Audience Reviews for Baby - Secret of the Lost Legend
Some people find dinos living in the jungle. Simple story and lack luster effects make this an ok watch.More
Remarkable technical know-how makes the creatures entirely credible in the 1980's and Baby B is quite irresistible!More
Here is a movie that made my Corny movie of the 80's list!
Super Cheesy animatronics represent a family of brontosaurus found in the deep African jungle. A married couple stumble upon them and want to keep them safe from some jackholes who want to capture them and exploit the poor animals and the St. Bernard size BABY Bronto.
Cutesy and Corney - it was the 80's what do you expect?
