Dinosaurs! Yes! - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Dinosaurs! Yes!
Dude you guys remember this from the 80's? I didn't remember it was hosted by Christopher Reeve, I just remember it from the awesomely violent but gruesome (read "juicy") stop motion animation. Scared me in parts as a kid but OH YES DINOS! I tried to find it before but to no avail. Awesome :D LOL outdated info. I'm sad they didn't show Mr. Rex or Dinny though :( (Cabazon Dinos)

Brontosaurus is such a sweet guuuuuuuuuuuuuy

LOL Shelley Long. Look at the scary red eyes on Deinonychus. :( THIS IS WHY I FEAR THEM!

Baby you gonna get ate.

This was terrifying to me.


Current Mood: nostalgic nostalgic

Ooooh, I remember the claymation pieces from an old (windows 95ish) interactive dinosaur-themed videogame. They had them in the theatre section among a few other dinosaur-themed short films. I remember being scared of them but completed amazing at the same time. XD Good to know where they came from, though. ;D

I HAD THIS SOFTWARE! It was awesome! Mine was for Windows 3.1. I was so impressed with it. Some of it was the first CG dinosaurs I ever saw. Do you remember all the weird games and stuff? It was called 3D dinosaur or something I think.. it came with 3d glasses, but only a few parts of it were 3D XD

Lord I still have the CD ROM somewhere, I gotta try and find it.

DUDE YES 3D Dinosaur with the 3D glasses!!! I remember the games, and they even had this neat dinosaur building application where you could choose a 3D model of a species and then select different skin patterns for it. Hilarious XD

I'm pretty sure I still have it too, but I've lost hope for it ever workin' on my Vista computer haha

HA! That's right! There were weird skins available, like WOOD?? WTF XD
I wonder if I could get it to run on a DOS emulator. It was actually a DOS based program! At least my version of it was. Windows 3.11 was like... pretend Windows and nearly everything used DOS to run XD

Did Phil Tippet do the hadrosaur family sequences?

Wow - If I'd seen this when it came out, I'd have probably gotten into dinosaurs sooner than Jurassic Park. As it is, I am entertained at how young the paleontologists look, and I had to dig out my JP stegosaurus with all the autographs on it to see if I had Phil Currie on there. I do! Cool. 35 names on there, and some of them are getting a bit illegible. I think I will enlist the help of Luis Rey to help me identify who's who. Maybe with a proper list I can sell it on ebay. Or better yet - find a way to preserve it so the names stop wearing off :P

Oh and I had to find this link after seeing the end of the last video clip: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A5439-2005Jan12.html

Oh and I saw that guy in your Large Marge icon at the Post Office today on a poster advertising about updating your TV. I think it was by the "DTV Transition Coalition." I was amused by the coincidence since you just posted the pics.

Heheh, I remember this back in fall of 1985 (yes I remember the date) when my parents recorded this and I watched it over and over again...LOL.

The t-rex looked funny...lol
