‘Dinosaurs’ Is Coming To Disney+ So Get Ready To Relive The Glory Of ’90s TV

Is the famous show Dinosaurs coming to Disney+ this fall? A reference on a recent ABC broadcast seemed to suggest that it will.

The new streaming service Disney+ already streams some pretty impressive and entertaining content, and one of the most requested titles ever is the children’s ABC series, Dinosaurs.

We seem to have some good news, as it is now being reported that the show will become available on Disney+ to watch sometime in the Fall.

Although no clear date has yet been made available, the announcement was made by Deadpool and Free Guy actor, Ryan Reynolds, during the airing of ABC’s brand-new game show, Don’t

While the Disney+ release date of Dinosaurs is unclear right now, hopefully, the series will be available everywhere, but even that is irritatingly unknown at the moment.

Looking back, it would have been great for Reynolds to give us all a few more details. Nevertheless, the news will at least be enough to put a smile on the faces of many old fans of the series.

Starting in 1991, and ending in 1994,  the show was aired on ABC for 65 episodes. Similar to both The Flintstones and The Simpsons, Dinosaurs poked fun at modern life through the story of the Sinclairs, a normal family that only happened to be dinosaurs. 

The series follows a family of dinosaurs living in a modern world. They’ve got TVs, refrigerators and a variety of other regular, everyday items. 

The only human beings among them are cavemen, who are just seen as pets or wild animals.

The series is now remembered fondly, with the terrifying finale, Changing Nature, having infamously gathered something of a dedicated following over the last 30 years. 

If you’re not trying to avoid a thirty-year-old spoiler, keep on reading. Still, reading? Great. The series ends with the Patriarch of the family inadvertently leading to the beginning of the Ice Age.

If that doesn’t sound bad enough, the series ends abruptly with our beloved family freezing to death, with no idea of what’s really happening. Without a doubt, there are a lot of fans who can’t wait to relive all of the most exciting moments of the series.

The show is also well-remembered for the catchphrases “Not The Momma!” and “I’m the baby, gotta love me!” which were often hollered by the series’ breakout star Baby Sinclair. 

Newly hatched in the premiere episode, The Mighty Megalosaurus, Baby Sinclair is a precocious, lovingly bratty, greedy, lazy, merciless, arrogant, nosy, abusive, and whiny kid who managed to steal the hearts of millions of viewers.

Dinosaurs have previously been made available on Hulu but is currently not available on any other streaming platform to watch. Despite that, the show is available for purchase on platforms like Amazon.

Dinosaurs were the idea of the puppeteering genius Jim Henson, who developed the concept at the end of the 1980s. Unfortunately, though, he passed away before ever getting to see it aired on TV.

The show was produced by Michael Jacobs Productions and Jim Henson Television in collaboration with Walt Disney Television, starring Stuart Pankin, Jessica Walter, Jason Willinger, Sally Struthers, and Kevin Clash. And it was first aired on ABC.

Despite the lack of detailed information, the launch of Dinosaurs on Disney+ is definitely an exciting thing to hear about, and may also mean the release of other Jim Henson-produced works on Disney+. Although Dinosaurs is a 90s show, its charm will never fade even in 2020.
