Creating Dinosaurs: The Sketches That Started It All takes a brief four-minute look at the original sketches used to sell the show to the ABC network, with a crew member taking you through each of the character designs and the changes made before it went to production. We also get Preview Trailers on disc startup (Pirates of the Caribbean 2, Scrubs Season 3, Golden Girls Season 5 and The Muppet Show) that are also available from the main menu, along with Easter Eggs hidden across the discs, from looks at the individual character designs, controlling the puppets and trivia about how the character names are all fossil fuel manufacturing companies in America.
Dinosaurs: The Complete Season 1 and 2 is a fairly typical family sit-com, standout only because all of the characters are dinosaurs. Although this gimmick wears thin after a while and the show does run out of steam, there are a few laughs to have along the way if this is your kind of thing. In terms of technical specs, the video is not great but the audio is acceptable and there are a couple of nice extras for fans of the series. I'm not sure, but I suspect this show has just not aged as well as its counterparts, so you'd have to catch an episode and see if you like it before you invest in this.
