Jim Henson’s Dinosaurs will be coming to Disney Plus in January! The 1990’s sitcom was previously on Hulu, but is being switched over to Disney Plus. The hope is that it will find a bigger and new audience there. All four seasons will be up on January 29th.
Dinosaurs originally aired from 1991 to 1994 on ABC. The sitcom followed the Sinclairs, a family of dinosaurs from 60,000,03 BC in Pangaea. The show showed how the family dealt with ups and downs of everyday life.
In an interview with producer Brian Henson, he said, “We were ahead of our time, I guess. But we were pulling a lot of our themes from All in the Family, which was years and years before us. And even The Honeymooners before that. Yes, we were ahead of our time. But isn’t it sad that we were having the same issues? Not only decade after decade, but generation after generation. It’s sad.”
Baby Sinclair is one of the favorites from the show. Complete with his own catchphrases, “Not the Momma!” and “I’m the baby, gotta love me”. His favorite pastime from the show is hitting his dad with a frying pan. Being set in 60,000,03 BC, the dinosaurs have greatly evolved. Just a million years prior, they were behaving like animals. But now, they are raising families, working, living in houses, and paying taxes.
Get ready 2021! The Dinosaurs are back.
