''Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs'' is a series of children's books written and drawn by Ian Whybrow and Adrian Reynolds. The series is about a 5-year-old boy named Harry, who has a bucket full of dinosaurs. In the books the dinosaurs talk to Harry but seem to be toys to the other characters. The other main characters are Mum, Nan, Harry's best friend Charlie, and Harry's sister Sam.

A British/Canadian TV series was created that originally aired on Cartoon Network (on its ill-fated Tickle U block) and many other channels outside America. In here it centers around the same character who owns a bucket with the addition of it teleporting him to [[AnotherDimension another universe]] called [=DinoWorld=] with the toy dinosaurs coming to life.

!!The following tropes include:
* AdaptationExpansion: The books itself did not have the AnotherDimension trips that would be extant in the TV series proper.
* AnimateInanimateObject: The Dinos of course.
** The Sergeant Shout toy Harry borrowed from his friend came to life during a visit from [=DinoWorld=]. This could apply to other objects (like toys) as well.
* BlackBestFriend: Charlie. [[GenderBlenderName She's a girl in case you've mistaken.]]
* CatchPhrase: "I'M ON MY WAY TO...DINO WORLD!!!!"
** Every time Harry's mom comes home. "1...2...3...Jump!"
* {{Cloudcuckooland}}: Oh where do we start. We already have a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} as a protagonist.
* CoolOldLady: Harry's Nana.
* DisappearedDad
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The show is innocent and a great watch for kids but there have been things that seemed to make this show a bit distinct.
** If you think about the usual dialogues of [[WesternAnimation Western Animation]]'s children's shows, you know that they always almost never used the certain s-word. [[IThoughtItMeant Don't start thinking what you're about to think]], I was talking about the word "stupid". They never use words like that or any similar adjective thereof. [[Tropers/KorenSteen This troper]] has taken the liberty to count how many times the show used this word. It's four (I think...). Much funnier is how it got that way. The word "stupid" was said three times in one episode ("I Wish!") by Trike. And only one time by Harry (in the episode "Goal!"). You know what, I'm just gonna show you the quotes...
-->From ''I Wish!'':
--->'''Taury:''' ''*loudly*'' Trike shouldn't get a wish if he's going to waste it on something stupid.
--->'''Trike:''' Stupid? You're calling ''me'' stupid? I'll show you. I wish I was super-smart.
-->From ''Goal!'': (After bailing out of the soccer game)
--->'''Harry:''' Stupid game...
** Same for the books as stated by parents whom some are concerned (sometimes shocked) about its wording or thought that it decreases the story's innocent atmosphere.
*** "Stupid" is not uncommon in children's animation, aside from ones targetted at ''really'' young children.
** Then there's the running gag of Trike getting pooped on by a bird every time he says TheScottishTrope.
** And also, [[ItMakesSenseInContext a large truck of]] ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext dino poo]]''... The greatest literal example.
* HereWeGoAgain: At the end of "What Mess?", Harry says that the best part of having a clean room is having lots of space to make a mess. Cue the dinosaurs groaning and saying the trope name.
** And also in "But I Like Mud!", in which Harry proclaims the best part of baths is getting dirty afterward.
* LongTitle: Averted. Many episode names are just one word or is just a phrase.
* MeaningfulName: The dinos' names are related to the names of the kind of dinosaurs they are. Pterence's name is spelled and pronounced the same way as pterodactyl, for example and Steggy is a stegosaurus.
** AerithAndBob: There are exceptions with Taury (a T-Rex) and Sid (a Scelidosaurus). But if you think about it, they may be named the same way as the other dinos though much more subtle and you may not know it at first unless you've memorized what kind of dinosaurs they are (which is in the theme song). They are possible derivations from the words "tyrannosaurus" and "scelidosaurus", respectively.
* MindScrew: This troper remembers an episode in which an old man takes Harry and the dinosaurs into a very weird universe in [=DinoWorld=]. He cannot however remember the theme of the episode nor its name.
* MrImagination: Harry.
* TheNounAndTheNoun: The books' titles.
* TheOneGuy: Harry is this in the human cast since his family and best friend are all female.
* ThePilot: "Aaagh!"
* PinkMeansFeminine: Patsy, the only female of the dinosaur group, is pink.
* PutOnABus: An InUniverse example is that in the episode, "I Want To Help?", it had another dinosaur who decided to live in Nana's knitting basket because she was [[TheFool causing destruction in [=DinoWorld=] due to her clumsiness]]. In addition, [[TheScottishTrope saying her name can also cause a bird to poop on your head.]] If you must know it's [[spoiler: Nancy. The actual cursed word is actually "Nanosaurus"]].
* SecretKeeper: Apparently Charlie hasn't told anybody about [=DinoWorld=] because she's the only kid so far Harry has allowed to go with him. Nobody's suspicious about where they've been going at all.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Sid the ''Scelidosaurus''.
* StockDinosaurs: Taury the ''TyrannosaurusRex'', Patsy the ''Apatosaurus'', Steggy the ''Stegosaurus'', Trike the ''Triceratops'', and Pterrance the ''Pterodactylus'' (called pterodactyl in the show).
* SugarApocalypse: There was an episode that involved [=DinoWorld=] in a very heavy flood. This is caused by the rain leaking from the roof in Harry's house which had Sam use the bucket to catch the water.
* SugarBowl: [=DinoWorld=]
* TitleDrop: Usually, the episodes names are made by the first few seconds of the episode's dialogue or exclamation by the one (usually Harry) who says it, but there have been a few times they've dodged this streak.
* TitleThemeTune
* {{Wabbit}}[=/=]{{Wicket}}: Whoever directed all the episodes of this show, they must've had ''really'' fun with it.
