    If anyone here can help me out, I need descriptions for the seven Dinosaurs episodes that were never shown in the USA. Here are the titles:

    Scent of a Reptile
    Earl and Pearl
    Life in the Faust Lane
    Variations on a Theme Park
    Working Girl
    Into The Woods
    Georgie Must Die

    I'm getting them in trades, and I'm curious to know what they're about.

    I may be wrong about this, but didn't they all air? Maybe I am confused and saw them on a channel we only get here in Canada....

    According to the Dinosaurs guide at TV Tome, they're listed as unaired. Joggy and BlueFrackle told me they have those episodes.

    Well I know from past experience alot of TV Tome's information is sometimes wrong, but I'm not sure in this case. I do know that there are no "unaired" episodes. Any episodes that might not have been seen during the original ABC run would have been later broadcast on cable (we had them on Family Channel here - I think Disney aired the series in the U.S.).

    I'm 95% sure I watched the final episode of Dinosaurs on ABC, so it seems odd they would bother to air the finale but skip seven other episodes. The show was airing very erradically in the U.S. with very little promotion by that point, so it's possible shows aired without some people realizing.

    Does anyone know for sure? BlueFrackle maybe?

    Sorry, I dont know for sure which episodes were and were not aired in the US.

    I do know that Disney Channel UK has been airing the show ever since it first came out, And now they just started the run again. So Season Two is on now, And im recording 'em.

    Earl and Pearl: Earl's sister, Pearl comes to visit she leads Robbie and Sharlene a stray by telling them to come watch her sing in the club rather than doing there homework. Earl likes Pearl as much as he likes Ethyl in the beginning, But by the end they both realise that they really love eachother. Awww !

    Thats the only title i know for sure, But i found this Dinosaurs Episode Guide, Hope it helps !

    see ya

    .... Lucky UK... snotty...


    It's kind of weird to hear Disney Channel playing Dinosaurs again. Especially when you consider in the US it's a 24 hour Lizzie McGuire channel...

    That's pretty cool, though. Dinosaurs on Disney. Cool.

    None of the 7 above mentioned titles are on that guide. But thanks anyway, BlueFrackle.

    I remember watching the series with my family on a weekly basis, and Changing Nature was the last new episode we ever saw. What a grim way to end a great series. :( :cry: :o

    What was Changing Nature? I know the series was (at least supposed to) end with Earl causing the extinction of the Dinosaurs. Was that it?
  9. muppet_dk

    muppet_dk Well-Known Member

    Yes that was it. It was actually quite good to make a ending like that, even though it was a bit sad.
    And Earl did not do it on purpose it just sort of happened
  10. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I know. He wouldn't do it on purpose.

    It actually sounds like the perfect ending to a show about Dinosaurs! I suppose the 7 unaired episodes take place before that.
  11. muppet_dk

    muppet_dk Well-Known Member

    That will be my guess to since the dinosaurs are going down in that episode.
    So it would be very hard, more like impossible, to make other episodes after that one.
  12. Buck-Beaver

    Buck-Beaver Well-Known Member

    Yeah, the last episode was kind of grim, but I mean really - is there any other way to end a series about Dinosaurs?
  13. King Prawn

    Okay unless I'm mislead by the titles here are the few I know (i probably know them all, i'm sure I know them all but by the title these are the only episodes i can think of that you're looking for.

    Earl & Pearl
    BlueFrackle already gave a description on this but i'd like to add the reason Earl hates Pearl is because when their father dies she went off to become a singer leaving Earl all alone to take care of their mother. Pearl identical to earl, except she wears a dress and has earings and to go even further she has a "P" in her name. Roy dates Pearl for a while but for some reason dumps her and Earl consoles her. It ends with Earl & Pearl having a fight and Pearl leaving but before going asks Earl to come to some bar with the family to hear her sing. The Sinclairs go to the bar and Pearl then calls Earl up on stage to sing with her, Robbie and Sharline are very emmbarresed but as it turns out Earl is an excellent singer.

    Into The Woods
    This could either be one of two, one is that Robbie is found with his pants down (did he wear any ever?) whilst Peeing in the woods with his date near by, Spike see's this and I forget the rest or it could be one where Robbie tells Baby a scary story after he (Baby) plays a practical trick on him, the story Robbie tells Baby is about a time when he got bit my a cave man and turned into a wearman.

    Scent of a Reptile
    I believe this is an episode where we learn a very important fact about Dinasours, when a female Dinasour reaches a certain age she gets a scent which all other male Dinasours hate and can't stand (for a short period of time) except the man she's suppose to marry, which for poor Sharline turns out to be the janitor of her shcool. She is very upset by this and Ethyl tells her about a flower which only grows somewhere very far which can change her scent, Sharline goes in search of this flower but after weeks of travelling she learns all the flowers have been removed to built a one hour photo stand, whilst on her quest Earl is already planning her Wedding as he takes a very fond likeing of the janitor (his name escapes me at the moment) eventually Sharline retuns and descides she's not going to marry the janitor because she's not in love with him.

    Working Girl
    This might be the episode where Sharline is trying to find a job but as it turns out only males are hired, she then sends a letter to the council and they decide to take on her request to have every comapny hire at least one woman (they decide by bringing out her letter from one of those things they bring the balls out for the lottory). Mr. Richfields company WE SAY SO must hire a female, Earle, Roy and two other Dinasours pose as woman but are caught out my the inspector which came to see if Mr. Richfield had hired woman at that point Shaline works in bringing Earl his lunch which he had forgotten and Mr. Richfield immediatley names her supervisor to Earl and his co-worker, Earl and his friends take advantage of her but then Sharline presudaes them into working by offering them a donut for every tree they push down.

    Variations on a Theme Park
    Again i'm not sure if this is the one i'm thinking of but if it is it's one of the best eps of the series. Earl is suckered into taking the family to the new WE SAY SO theme park but once they're there they find out on 1/4 of the park is ready and it won't be complete for another five years, they decide to leave but are not allowed until their time at the theme park is up. Everything is priced, it cost a dollar a second whilst the fridge is open, a dollar a second if you pick up the phone and Seven dollars for what was suppose to be ice on a stick but has melted and is now a wet stick which Baby takes a liking too. Earl meets Roy at the theme park and they both stand in a long line just cause it's long and eventually find out it's for renting strollers, they do so and at the end Earl and family spend their vacation in their hotel room playing a game they made up using the stroller.

    I'm not sure about Georgie must die and Life on the faust line, if i remember or can put the episode title to an epsiode i'll let you know
  14. Those 7 episodes aired when the show ran in syndication and later on Disney Channel in the second half of the 1990's.

    Jeez! I have the world's slowest Internet connection

    I've seen pretty much all those episodes of "Dinosaurs" in syndication.

    By the way, King Prawn. You're description of "Into the Woods" was incorrect. That was one of my favorite episodes. What happened was, since the Baby turned 2, he had to go out in the woods in order to provide for himself. Fran had Earl take him out, but he didn't want to do it since he was watching a game with Roy and Robbie, so they took the TV with them. Since they weren't paying attention to the Baby, they stumbled in the tarpit. They then had to have the Baby get help. Just as he was about to, he made friends with some mammal creature (who sounded a bit like Rizzo the Rat). That part was hilarious. They were playing a video game called "Idiots" where they had to get three idiots out of a tarpit. The character also bribed the Baby with candy. Baby eventually realized he had to get help, so he found a woodsman. He was able to get them out of the tarpit. He turned out to be Roy's long lost father. However, neither one of them ever realized it.

    Classic moments from this episode:

    Earl: (In Baby's thoughts) Hey, don't you look at that other thought bubble.

    Robbie: There is no way this idiot box is going to help us. (Throws TV into the pit)

    TV announcer: And here are three easy steps for getting out of a tarpit, should you ever brainlessly stumble into one. One: *blub, blub, blub*, Two: *blub, blub, blub,* Three: *blub, blub, blub*

    Robbie: What are the odds?

    The descriptions for the rest of those unaired eps can be found at the TV tome episode guide. Unfortunatley, I don't think I've ever seen "Changing Nature." Is that one available on video anywhere?

    I remember Into the Woods! That one was good. You mentioned the tar pits, and I immediately remembered.

    Oh, hey, Daffyfan! Haven't seen you around in a while. Everything been okay?

    Yeah, I'm fine. I have this job at this church camp and I don't have Internet access up there. I can only post here when I'm home for the weekend.

    I think it was released on VHS. I recall seeing it at my local Blockbuster in the children's section. I'll double check next time I am there.

    I found some more descriptions at an eBay auction. Here they are:

    Life in the Faust Lane
    "Earl is jealous of Richfield's collection of mugs, and to get his own mug, he enters into a pact with the devil."

    Georgie Must Die
    "Baby becomes infatuated with a children's television program. The star, Georgie, is a seemingly friendly cow who really has a nasty disposition."
