1990s TV series "Dinosaurs" is coming to DVD

I loved this show - never knew there were only 65 episodes produced.

The last episode of the series was surprisingly dramatic and sad. Good to see this and other TGIF series coming to DVD.

That is good news. I'll pick these up.

The entire series was pretty much a play on big industry but the last episode was not something you would expect from a show primarily viewed by children.

Only? Hell, I didn't know there were that many!

Love the show, one of the very few on my "hope to be released" list.

My best friend and I still believe that the series finale of Dinosaurs is probably one of the better television finales ever produced. A very downbeat episode for something known as a comedy meant for families.

Spoiler:
Any show that basically kills off the entire cast in the final episode gets a thumbs up from me.

This is one of those shows that I think about every so often, and would like to be able to watch again.

Great news! Now if only their site would come back up, so I can read it myself.

According to epguides.com, the show had 4 seasons - the first of which was only 5 episodes, so if they're releasing season sets I assume they'll release seasons 1 & 2 (29 episodes) together.

This is such a coincidence - This week's Toronto Star newspaper TV guide "Starweek" mentioned this show, specifically whether it would be on DVD or not.

My mother is excited about this. Hopefully this will motivate her enough to learn how to work a dvd player.

Site's back up, but here's the important info in case the site goes back down or if you're just too lazy to go there:

65 eps produced, 7 were not aired until syndication, though.

The closest thing they have to a date right now is "sometime in 2006" and "maybe the second quarter" and that's just from "industry sources." If the "second quarter" rumor is accurate, it will be officially announced in about a month.

I'd be curious to know how accurate the "industry sources" that this info came from have been in the past before.... because now that I read the article, there should be a BIIIIIIG "maybe" in the title of this thread.

WOW! Finally, this is one of the television shows that I catch myself wishing to come to DVD most. I will get all of these release day. Now we just need Bobby's World and Rocko's Modern Life. Well of course there are more.

Wooohooooo!! I was a huge fan of this show growing up and I've been anticipating a release for a long time. I have some of the Dinosaur's action figures on my DVD shelf.. and I just picked up a sealed Earl figure in a bargain bin at a horror convention in the summer for a buck.. now I'll HAPPILY add one of my favorite titles from my childhood to my collection! Hopefully they don't release the individual seasons and then make plans to release the complete collection ala Ren & Stimpy..

I'll pass on this one. I liked it when I was little, but I don't think I'd watch more than a few episodes now...and I sure as heck wouldn't watch the set more than once.

I really used to love that show but honestly I doubt I would enjoy it at this point in my life. :/

Sorry about that. We've been having problems with the site since we added a Blogger blog last week, so the blog was moved. I wasn't home at the time, so I didn't realize the site was down. I said some bad words when I got home
