BURBANK, Calif., April 12, 2006 –The critically acclaimed, award-winning comedy series from Michael Jacobs

One of the most-requested TV shows that fans have roared for on DVD, Dinosaurs is a comedy series set in 60,000,003 B.C., starring the Sinclairs, a hilarious family of very modern dinosaurs. Their comedic antics and continuing family relationships provide a humorous look at our own society today.
The show features a talented vocal cast and big-time guest stars, and the four-disc DVD box set boasts exclusive bonus features including a never-before-seen look at the making of Dinosaurs. For fans of the show and new audiences, all the pre-hysterical fun of DINOSAURS THE COMPLETE FIRST AND SECOND SEASONS is ready to own on a four-disc DVD box set for $39.99 (S.R.P.) from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.
Based on an idea by Jim Henson, Dinosaurs is a live-action series which employs Jim Henson Productions’
puppetry and audio animatronics from Henson’s fabled Creature Shop. Combined with smart writing and hilarious characters, Jim Henson Productions’ ground-breaking puppet technology created a show which won an Emmy
Award for Outstanding Art Direction (1991), the coveted Parents Choice Award for Television (1992), Parents
Choice Gold Seal Award (1992), the Environmental Media Award (1991, 1993), Genesis Award (1991), the New
York Film Festival Silver Medal for Family Programming Award (1992) and the Chicago International Film
Festival Silver Hugo Award (1993).
Dinosaurs’ vocal cast features all-time TV favorites Sherman Helmsley (TV’s “The Jeffersons”) and Sally
Struthers (TV’s “All In The Family”), with a guest star list that includes Jason Alexander, Michael Richards and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (all of TV’s “Seinfeld” fame), Tim Curry (“Valiant”) and legendary comedian Buddy Hackett (“The Love Bug”).
