IMPORTANT NOTICE: “Dinosaurs” — the 90s sitcom about the domestic life of a T-rex and his family — is available for your viewing pleasure right now on Netflix. That’s right, relive all the “I’m the baby, gotta love me!” magic starting right now on instant stream.
“Dinosaurs” originally premiered in 1991 on ABC as a team up with puppet master Jim Henson Productions and Michael Jacobs (“Boy Meets World”). The famous puppeteer had dreamed up the concept shortly before his death in 1990 and was never able to see the realized version on the small screen. However, many still remember it as a staple show of the early 90s. Earl, Fran, Charlene, Robbie and Baby all stomped into our hearts only to leave the air three short years later.
Though it only lasted for four brief seasons it housed some of America’s favorite TV talents. Fun fact: Fran, the mama dinosaur, was voiced by Jessica Walter. You may know her better as Lucille Bluth on “Arrested Development”. Baby was voiced by John Clash — who is also responsible for “Sesame Street” most ticklish friend, Elmo. Sally Struthers was the ‘tude behind Earl and Francine’s teenage daughter Charlene.
You can relive all of the dinosaur family drama for yourself and catch all the things you missed in the 90s on Netflix now though. All four seasons are available now, so kick back and get your nostalgia on.
