The Dinosaurs TV show was a comedy series that was created by Jim Henson ("The Muppet Show") for Disney Studios. The Sinclairs were a working-class family of dinosaurs with all of today's modern conveniences and social problems. They keep their food (often still alive) in the refridgerator and watch their favorite shows on television. Stone-aged type humans are the wild animals and sometimes family pets. Dad has to deal with a boss that would make Scrooge look like mother Teresa and a daughter who is reminisent of a valley girl and a son with a purple mohawk hairstyle! It was pretty much a typical sitcom with dinosaurs for Cast as a twist!
