* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gh4zvQfDhi0 Jurassic Park]]", turning the {{melodrama}}tic ([[{{Narm}} to the point of hilarity]]) "[=MacArthur=] Park" into a [[FilkSong retelling of]] [[Franchise/JurassicPark Spielberg's movie]].
* TheBlackKeys first video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNXwicxlsvI Tighten Up]]" features a puppet dinosaur named Frank, who returns surrounded by bikini-clad women in "Next Girl" ([[http://pitchfork.com/news/39197-directors-cut-black-keys-next-girl/ "When I had the opportunity to make a second one with Frank, I was like, "Dude, he's got to be a pimp."]]).

Added DiffLines:

* The entire reason ''FanFic/MesozoicEffect'' exists. According to the [[WordOfGod author]] the idea of putting sentient dinosaurs into the MassEffect universe was just awesome not to write about, regardless of how [[MST3KMantra little sense it makes.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' used dinosaurs (together with cavemen) as a common subject. In fact, the scientific name for a stegosaur's tail (thagomizer) is derived from a comic where a caveman explains that it is derived from "the late Thag Simmons".

[[folder:Real Life]]
* No museum, theme park, or children's book is complete without dinosaurs.
** Yup. Even museums devoted to fine art. They ''gotta'' have a dinosaur.
* There are actual realistic dinosaur suits you can find online. However, they are deathly expensive if you want to get one of your very own.
** You know why paleontology is more popular among kids than, say, epidemiology. Yup. it's the dinosaurs. Every kid has a dinosaur phase. Of course if they pursue their interest at an academic level, they'll find out it's hard work. That's not to say that JurassicPark wasn't hard work too.

Note that just because a series [[JustifiedTrope provides a reason]] for there to be dinosaurs does not mean it isn't an example of this trope. Sure, a dinosaur altmode might very well be a good idea for a Transformer, but the real reason for a dinosaur form is to [[MerchandiseDriven appeal to young boys]].
