Mega-Talented Cast and Guest Stars Plus Big Bonus Features
Add Up To A DVD Box Set Of Prehysteric Fun On May 2

BURBANK, Calif., January 20, 2006 - Because thundering hordes of fan-osaurs demanded it, Disney and Jim Henson Productions present DINOSAURS THE COMPLETE FIRST AND SECOND SEASONS, available for the first time ever on DVD May 2. One of the most-requested TV shows that fans have roared for on DVD, Dinosaurs is the critically-acclaimed, award-winning 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 multi-disc DVD 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 laughs and fun of DINOSAURS THE COMPLETE FIRST AND SECOND SEASONS are ready to own in a DVD box set for $39.99 (S.R.P.).

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").


      This featurette is a never-before-seen look at how Jim Henson's Creature Shop brought Dinosaurs to life.

      Character Designer Kirk Thatcher takes viewers through his original designs for Dinosaurs.

    Dinosaurs chronicles the story of the highly-evolved and hysterically funny Sinclair family, whose daily adventures may be the most comic in pre-history. Earl Sinclair (Stuart Pankin) is a bombastic, middle-aged Megalosaurus. A blue-collar dinosaur, Earl has worked as a tree pusher for 24 years. Fran (Jessica Walter) is Earl's even-tempered Allosaurus wife. Their two adolescent children are Robbie (Jason Willinger), the 14-year-old with unconventional beliefs, and Charlene (Sally Struthers), the 12-year old, two-ton epitome of a material girl who never finishes talking or shopping. Completing the family are Baby (Kevin Clash), the attention-grabbing newborn, and Grandma Ethyl (Florence Stanley), Fran's mother who opposes Earl on everything. They're joined by Roy Hess (Sam McMurray), Earl's best friend, co-worker and a confirmed bachelor Tyrannosaurus, and B.P. Richfield (Sherman Hemsley), Earl's ferocious Triceratops boss.

    Dinosaurs is a production of Michael Jacobs Productions and Jim Henson Productions in association with Walt Disney Television. Executive Producer Michael Jacobs, Co-Executive Producer Brian Henson, Supervising Producer Bob Young. Produced by Mark Brull, Co-Producer Jeff McCracken, Co-Producer Kirk R. Thatcher. Associate Producer Kim Rozenfeld.
