    Doe's any body remember dinosaurs, and are they part of the muppet family because Disney published almost all the videos. And at the bottom of the action figures it also had disney. So are they muppets or was disney just using the henson company to do there dirty work. And also are dinosurs still on Television. It would be cool if they were. SEE YA.

    I love(d) this show.I have a video of it and may be getting some more soon,at a local bookstore they have a ALOT of dinosaur vids for a buck.anyway to answer your question Disney distributed it and stuff or buena vista did but Jim Henson Productions produced it and stuff.in fact when it was on you could meet the Dinosaurs at Disney Mgm studios in Orlando Flordia.

    Hey Baby (lol, sounds a bit stupid, but okay..),

    Remember the Dinosaurs? I'm scrounging for episodes! I have about 25 (of the 65 total). Once I get a little extra cash I am going to buy the commercial releases. Awesome and amazing show...I was just watching an episode before I got on.

    As for the "are they Muppets?" question, I guess its all how you define a Muppet. They are Muppets in the sense that they were made and some characters were performed by Muppeteers. Although Disney did produce the show, they also harbor MV3D, and thats obviously Muppets (yes, different I know, but kind of the same if you think about it). I think it would be safe to say they are, so I'm going to do that. They are Muppets. :D

    I loved Ethel...oh, that's one rockin' grandma... :D :D

    Ya know, that's not a bad idea. If anyone will replay it, they would be it. I don't know if they will though, being they seem to be geared towards modern teens, and Dinosaurs is a bit too clever for them. Heh.

    Well, when Dinosaurs was produced, Disney owned Henson. All the Muppet (and Fraggle Rock) videos of the time were released by BeunaVista - a division of Disney. So, everything produced by Disney was definitely Muppets (same story as MCC and MTI).

    Disney owned all of Henson at the time, or just whatever unit did the commercial release videos? Maybe the might Phillip might want to come in and invoke knowledge a bit. :)

    (PS - Mark, got the vids, I'm going to email you tonight.)

    They owned all of Henson (to the same extent EMTV owns them now, I suppose).

    Is any one cave man enough to email ABC family and tell them to bring back our scaley freinds.

    I believe Disney owns half of Dinosaurs.

    Disney never actually owned Henson. A deal was supposed to go ahead but it was never signed. After Jim's death Disney was using the Muppet characters as if they owned them and this became the subject of a huge lawsuit between Henson and Disney which was eventually settled out of court.

    I believe Disney and Henson co-own the Dinosaurs characters/shows though.

    That's what I thought was the case also (at least that's what I've come to believe from reading company bios and such). Mark seemed to be pretty confident in his answer though, so I thought it best not to challenge him...The iron fists might start coming down, and landing upon my head. (hehe) :)

    Dinosaurs is listed as one of the Henson productions on Henson.com

    All Dinosaurs merchandise is marked (c) Disney

    So yeah, make the connection from there :)

    Dearest lord I hope I have that episode in the batch I just got. I remember seeing that when I was younger, before drugs were even things I knew anything about. I hope I can see it again. Good message there. I also want to see the episode where Spike takes Robbie to the biker-ish bar in the swamp...is that the same episode? :)

    GUY! (I like beginning things with a general "GUY!")

    I haven't seen "Dinosaurs" in soooooo long, and I don't remember much of it but I remember when it first aired. I was somewhere between 8 to 10 at the time (God, I don't remember... maybe younger) and my friend was over and we settled in to watch this brand spankin' new show. So it comes on, and y'know how the beginning of the theme song is all dark and scary? My mom was like "Ohhhh, I don't know if you kids should be watching this!" then right after she said that the theme song got all light and fun. And we never let her live it down.

    I just saw my tape of Little Boy Boo/ Refridgerator Day (for Halloween!) and maaaaaaan.. I fell right on my butt LAUGHIN'!!! Here are some of my favorite lines

    There!! Let's get the thing we do not understand, and therefore fear!

    If we bought stuff from you, that would make us the customer and you the store. Do you want to be a store? Lot of responsability!

    I'm lower than dirt! I wish I was dirt! I look up to dirt! Dirt laughs at me!

    "To miss Charlene's play, I'd throw myself down the stairs, sustane painful head injuries, and eat through a tube the rest of my life!" "That's very sweet dear!"

    "Wait a minnit! Refridgerator Day without presents is like two things, but one of them is missing, and it doesn't have the other thing to go with it!" "Who says you're not deep?"

    The drugs episode was indeed a GREAT one! (A New Leaf).

    And who can forget... "SMOO!" :D "We're saying Smoo, that is what we do, we're saying Smoo, and it's just for you..." I'll always remember exactly where I was when that guy said "Smoo" on TV! :D
