April 26th 1991, Dinosaurs debuts on ABC. Do you Remember?

April 26, 2014


Here’s a little Disney History for you today! Back on April 26, 1991, the Disney/Henson television series Dinosaurs debuted on ABC.

Dinosaurs was based on an idea by Jim Henson, the show featured the live-action combination of Audio-Animatronics and puppets (only the second show to feature this technique). Dinosaurs follows the life of a family of dinosaurs, living in a modern world. They have TVs, fridges, etc. The only humans around are cavemen, who are viewed as pets and wild animals. I don’t remember much about the show, but I do remember the baby Dinosaur Sinclair sitting on his Daddy’s shoulders, hitting him in the head saying “Not the Mamma! Not the Mamma!”

Dinosaurs was produced by Michael Jacobs Productions and Jim Henson Productions in association with Walt Disney Television, and ran from 1991 to 1994. Do you remember this show too?

  1. Yes I remember this show cause I just loved watching it. I bought the dvd series and I was lucky enough to buy the stuff toy of Baby Sinclair at the store called Woolworth’s. When it existed. My kids have watched it and so have my grandchildren. Baby Sinclair was my favorite of all the Dinosaur characters.
