Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs, produced by Jim Henson Productions, was a show that aired from 1991–1994, as part of ABC's "TGIF" lineup. The show, set in 60,000,003 B.C. in Pangaea, was a family-friendly blend of The Flintstones and The Simpsons. It revolved around the misadventures of the Sinclair family: Earl Sinclair, the father; Fran Sinclair, the mother; Robbie Sinclair, the son; Charlene Sinclair, the daughter; and Baby "Not the Mama" Sinclair, the baby.Although the show was lighthearted and geared toward younger viewers, it sometimes visited heavy themes, like sexual harassment, objectification of women, civil rights, steroid use, masturbation, drug abuse, racism, peer pressure, religion, and women's rights.In the memorable but very dark series finale, it touched on the themes of environmentalism and mortality — with an ending that left all of the characters facing their imminent death.
