Remember that episode of Dinosaurs when they all died at the end?

Neither do I, but apparently, that's how they ended the series. The dad somehow ends up in charge of everything and ENDS CIVILIZATION AS THEY KNOW IT:



Cheery viewing for a Sunday night.

This show was many things. Most of them pretty annoying, actually (I was once in the comic book store while some guy and his little kid were also there, and the kid repeated Baby Sinclair's catchphrase "I'm the baby, gotta love me!" non-stop for A HALF HOUR STRAIGHT; I experienced true rage that day). But subtle? Not so much.

See, I remember that show as being a vaguely polemic, but generally cheerful piece of family entertainment with foam dinosaurs and "gotta love me" and "We're saying Shmoooo....that's what we dooooo..."

I never saw how they ended it. That's... bleak. That's like ending Mister Rogers Neighborhood with an episode where they knock down Daniel Striped-Tiger's clock to build a Wal-Mart and it puts everyone out of business and that's that, good night.
