'''''When Dinosaurs Roamed America''''' (2001, sometimes shortened to ''When Dinosaurs Roamed'', especially outside North America) was the DiscoveryChannel's first major attempt to [[FollowTheLeader cash-in]] on the [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaur]]-[[{{Documentary}} documentary]] trend started by {{BBC}}'s famous ''WalkingWithDinosaurs''. Similar to that program, this also aimed for a SpeculativeDocumentary format, and used {{CGI}} to recreate its dinosaurs, [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeNonDinosaurianReptiles pterosaurs, and various other prehistoric animals]], placing them into [[RogerRabbitEffect real-life]] scenery. The stories were told in chronological order, from the beginning to the end of the dinosaurs' reign.

* TooDumbToLive: The dromaeosaurid attacking the ''Nothronychus'' head on, although both survive the attack.
** They then die when they're burned alive because they were too busy eating to run away from the fire.

** ''Quetzalcoatlus'' is portrayed as a [[PteroSoarer vulture-like scavenger that was "a fish out of water" (to quote the narrator) when it wasn't flying]]. It is now pretty certain that it was better at walking than flying and would probably be able to gallop after live prey up to the size of humans.

** ''Icarosaurus'' was not the first reptile to evolve the ability to glide (this is more of SomewhereAPaleontologistIsCrying as earlier gliding animals like ''Coelurosauravus'' and ''Sharovipteryx'' were known many years before the documentary's creation).

** ''Syntarsus'' is called ''Megapnosaurus'' now, and it may be synonymous with ''Coelophysis''.[[hottip:*: To further confuse things, the show's creatures may not be ''Megapnosaurus''[=/=]''Coelophysis'' at all, but a distinct creature that may have accidentally been named ''Kayentavenator''.]]

** Dubs fared no better. For instance all three Hungarian narrations (yes, there's than many) had trouble deciding where to use soft "C"s and hard "K"s, which lead to mispronunciations like "Koelophysis", "Keratosaurus" and "koelurosaurus" -- on the other hand, the third version got ''Desmatosuchus'' right for once.
