Critic Reviews for Dinosaurs: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Dinosaurs: Season 1

  • Feb 15, 2020
    Dinosaurs was a show that absolutely should be seen by everyone. The puppets may look really outdated at this point, but for 1991, it's really well-made. The biggest surprise of the show, however, is not in the puppets or Baby Saur's cute antics, but in how the social commentary and satire manages to remain fresh until the 21st Century and onwards. Themes that were hard  to be talked about, especially in a show that had somewhat of a kids appeal, were brilliantly tackled here, such as teenagehood's difficulties, environmental risks, feminism, religions and worker's conditions. Plus, it manages to satire the whole concept of the 'Family Sitcom' with maestry. Still fresh, Dinosaurs is a must for the ones who like reflection and a good dose of fun.

    A show way ahead of it's time

    This show is surprisingly amazing,from great jumpier for all ages to the look of the anamitronics,also with the extremely dark and life teaching finale
