* TheMeaningOfLife: In the episode "The Greatest Story Ever Sold", [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Baby]] starts asking how and why all dinosaurs exist. Since this is the first time this question was ever asked, it sends all of Pangaea into a state of panic since no one knows the answer. The Council of Elders ends up [[ChurchOfHappyology creating a new cult]] to give cheap easy answers so that everyone will get back to work. The cult: Potatoism. [[OnlySaneMan Robbie]] is the only one who doesn't buy into it.

** Earl actually ''is'' portrayed in the right in "Out of the Frying Pan", calling out Fran for playing StageMom to Baby, who is becoming spoiled and vulgar from influence.

** Robbie has a poster in his room of the ''[[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Cavemen]]''. An ActorAllusion too, as the guys in Robbie's, Charlene's and the Baby's suits were Donatello, Michaelangelo and Splinter in [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the 1990 film]]. Also a bit of FridgeBrilliance in that Jim Henson's Creature Shop, who designed the costumes and puppets for ''Dinosaurs'', also designed the live-action Ninja Turtles.

'''''Dinosaurs''''' is a show created by Creator/JimHenson (or at least his production company, since he died when the show was still in pre-production) that aired on ABC in the early '90s. At its core, it has the aesthetic of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' (only the family consists of dinosaurs, not prehistoric humans) and the social satire of a toned-down ''AllInTheFamily'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.

* GreenAesop: Many episodes had one, but none quite so much as the finale: Every year, a huge swarm of insects passes through town, and people come from miles around to see the spectacle, until WESAYSO builds a wax fruit factory on their breeding grounds. The insects die out, and without them, the vines they consumed spread virulently (soon they're taking over the Sinclairs' house, the news studio, WESAYSO's headquarters and everywhere else). [[spoiler:WESAYSO plans to fix that with mass volcanic eruptions, which destroy the ecosphere, bring in the Ice Age and end the dinosaur civilisation (and the series).]]

* EnfantTerrible: Baby was already very bratty to begin with, but this was taken UpToEleven when he reaches the Terrible Twos, resulting in a parody of ''Film/TheExorcist''.

* DumbDinos: The dinosaurs, especially the main cast, are generally well-meaning but tend to be slow on the uptake. [[spoiler:They end up responsible for their own extinction.]]

** When Earl was made EmployeeOfTheMonth, Mr. Richfield said he'd invite Earl and his family to dinner at his place but, since he was doing some alterations in the bathroom (or so he said), he invited himself to diner at Earl's place. With an overinflated ego, Earl had his family ready for this and even invited his [[ObnoxiousInLaws mother-in-law]] to rub it in her face. Richfield didn't show up.

* EmployeeOfTheMonth: When Mr. Richfield placed a suggestion box, Earl suggested the [=EOTM=] prize would motivate the employees. Mr. Richfield then made Earl the first [=EOTM=] just because he didn't want to take his time evaluating other employees.
