The Heart Wrenching Finale of the Endearing 90s Show, ‘Dinosaurs’ by K. Gitter January 17, 2018, 6:42 pm TumblrWith a show that encompassed a huge target audience of children as well as adults, Dinosaurs is best remembered for its extremely tragic and hard-hitting ending. The Jim Henson Productions sitcom ran from 1991-1994, ending in the extinction of the much beloved Sinclair family. An endearing family of animatronic dinosaurs captures the hearts of adults and kids alike, as it delivers powerful moral and ethical messages, while being light-hearted at the same time.ABC/DisneyThe Sinclair family was headed by the the Dad, Earl Sinclair. Set in modern times, this Dinosaur daddy worked as a tree pusher for a big company called Wesayso. His wife, Fran Sinclair was the typically docile wife of the late 90s sitcoms. The couple had two teenagers, Robbie and Charlene, and a baby who had some amazing catchphrases.ABC/DisneySet in 60,000,003 B.C. in Pangaea (but with a modern touch), the show interestingly alludes to subjects like sexual harassment, religion, civil rights, women’s rights and more. Before the ratings fell and the show was cancelled in 1994, it aired one last episode culminating in the misfortune that embroils the Sinclair family as a result of environmental neglect.ABC/DisneyThe Sinclair family is happily picnicking away and awaiting the annual return of the bunch beetles. However, as a major omen in the finale, the bunch beetles fail to show up because they were all gone as the dinosaurs took over their breeding ground for commercial purposes – a message that all of us need to pay attention to right now!ABC/DisneyWith beetles gone, the ecosystem goes topsy-turvy. They kept the climbing vine under control by feeding on it, and now with no beetles, the vines keep multiplying. In order to combat that, the Wesayso boss makes Earl responsible for coming up with a solution. And a solution, he comes up with! The environmental Task Force that he heads creates a defoliant that kills all the climbing vines. But there’s a slight glitch. It kills the vines plus all the other plant life in Pangaea!ABC/DisneyIt is only a matter of time as the planet is deprived of any vegetation. But before they give up, the Environmental Task Force comes up with a plan to bring about rain to grow plants. They shell the volcanoes to make volcanic clouds. And of course, as one might expect, these clouds made no rain. Instead, they blocked the sun entirely and led to the onset of ice age.ABC/Disney The Sinclair family huddles together one final time. Earl realizes that he had taken nature for granted and regrets it as the family silently accepts its fate. In this last image of the show, snow piles up on top of the Sinclair house, as they sit inside, resigning life to the numbing cold.
