"In my opinion, the final episode of "Dinosaurs", entitled "Changing Nature", is the best final episode of ANY series ever shown on television. It gives its own comedic and touching version of why the Dinosaurs became extinct, and it has an obvious relevance to the current environmental situation. Unfortunately, it appears as if the episodes are presented on the DVD not in production order, but in release order. In other words, there are several originally unaired episodes which are presented on the disc after "Changing Nature". If you buy this set, which I heartily recommend, do yourself a favor and watch "Changing Nature" last."

"This is a great show for kids and adults alike. I watched it growing up and even recorded a few episodes on the old VHS, ah! But now it is so much nicer to have the entire collection on DVD. And they don't string out the seasons like so many other shows where you have to buy them one at a time. Nice. So here is a list of seasons three and four episodes. Season 3 1. Nature Calls 2. Baby Talk 3. Network Genius 4. The Discovery 5. Little Boy Boo 6. Germ Warefare 7. Hungry for Love 8. License to Parent 9. Charlene's Flat World 10. Wilderness Weekend 11. The Son also Rises 12. Getting to Know You 13. Green Card 14. Out of the Frying Pan 15. Steroids to Heaven 16. Honey, I Miss the Kids 17. Swamp Music 18. Dirty Dancin' 19. If I Were a Tree 20. We Are Not Alone 21. Charlene and Her Amazing Humans 22. The Clip Show II
Season 4 1. Monster Under the Bed 2. Earl, Don't Be a Hero 3. The Greatest Story Ever Sold 4. Driving Miss Ethyl 5. Earl's Big Jackpot 6. Terrible Twos 7. Changing Nature THESE ARE NEVER BEFORE AIRED EPISODES BUT THEY ARE INCLUDED! 8. Scent of a Reptile 9. Earl and Pearl 10. Life in the Faust Lane 11. Variations on a Theme Park 12. Working Girl 13. Into the Woods 14. Georgie Must Die
Well that's all folks, no seriously this is a great series and I highly recommend it.

"I always liked this show when ABC broadcast it in the 90's, but it seemed ABC did not have faith in Henson's team. The program kept moving time slots, and there were long gaps between seasons (could this be due to the complexity of production?) Anyway, it seems "Changing Nature" was clearly meant to be a SERIES finale. It is one of the most touching you will see, and truly a revelation (I didn't catch it upon it's initial airing).
We also have a few episodes that were never aired by ABC (as a special treat), one of them a funny parody of Barney the Dinosaur. For this reason alone, fans who taped every episode MUST purchase this set for a COMPLETE collection. You also get two commentaries and two featurettes.
Dinosaurs (like the Simpsons), is one of those shows kids love, and parents appreciate because the humor is smart, not condescending."
Where is the Baby's Music Video????

"In all the product info for Season 3/4 of DINOSAURS, including Disney's press releases and their own website, the music video "I'm the Baby Gotta Love Me" is listed as a special added feature... Try to find it. On the actual packaging for the disc, it refers to a featurette called "I'm the Baby, Gotta Love Me" which is a nice bit about the Baby character, but the music video is not included...
I made a call to Disney's DVD department. I was put on hold for a while and then told: "the music video was announced in early publicity as being under consideration as a possible extra, but it was decided to include the featurette instead of the music video." I pointed out that the music video is clearly mentioned on Disney's own website. Their response: "If you'd like a refund or exchange...."
Put on Disc 1 and play an episode called "Little Boy Boo." At the end of the episode is... the music video of Baby Sinclair singing "I'm the Baby." It's a catchy song and the visuals are a lot of fun. This is up to the Henson creative team's usual high standards. However, you can't say the same for the Disney DVD division. There is no chapter stop for the musc video. You have to scan back from the end credits to find it ..
So obviously, there is confusion and miscommunication within Disney's DVD marketing department. They announced the Baby's Music Video as a feature but were quite confused about where it was... or whether it was there at all.
I think the Jim Henson Company's work on DINOSAURS is absolutely brilliant. Smart. clever, thoughtful, great looking and hilarious. Incredibly rich with layers of clever details, DINOSAURS is entertaining on more than one level. The more you watch it, the more you discover. I highly recommend the series itself as top-notch entertainment. I still howl with laughter at the hysterical EXORCIST parody ("The Power of Rice Compels You!") and the episode about inappropriate language, where the baby says "Smoo!"
Like the Walt Disney company used to, The Jim Henson Company has a reputation for thoughtful attention to detail. The Henson creations deserve better handling than Disney is giving, but then the same could be said of the vintage Disney movie catalog. Disney doesn't do the work justice. I can only hope Disney gets its "smoo" together before they "flark" up another good creation. ; )"
