If you grew up in a specific time, you may remember the live-action show from Jim Henson called Dinosaurs. It was a fun and lighthearted show about a modern family of…well…dinosaurs! The dad always wore red plaid shirts and the baby was always making a mess. Over time, it amassed somewhat of a cult following and fans from all over the world. Now, with Disney+ being the home of Disney’s streaming movies and TV shows, people are wondering, “When does Dinosaurs come to Disney Plus?” Well, we’ve got your answer! Find out below.
What Is the Dinosaurs TV Show?
Dinosaurs was a fun show about dinosaurs in a sort of modern world. It first hit the TV airwaves on ABC way back in the spring of 1991.
As a concept, Dinosaurs was created by the legendary Jim Henson of Muppets fame. Sadly, Henson died shortly before the show actually had its world premiere.
According to Collider, Dinosaurs “was a revised version of a fantasy epic filled with dinosaurs that [Jim Henson] wanted to make in the vein of The Dark Crystal.”
Basically: You can sort of think of it like Roseanne, but with dinosaurs instead of people.
Honestly, this show kinda scared me a little as a kid. I was only about 4 or 5 years old when it came out, so I wasn’t quite at the right level to get it.
As an adult, though, I’m excited to go back and watch it with new eyes and experience it (again!) for the “first time”. 🙂
