Trivia / Dink, the Little Dinosaur

  • Accidentally Correct Writing: "Sea Rescue" has plesiosaurs getting stranded on land just like how a shark or a whale would. We now know this is exactly what would happen to plesiosaurs if they ended up out of the water, but back when the show aired they were thought to be able to crawl onto beaches in the style of a sea turtle.
  • Follow the Leader: Conspicuously, the series premiered one year after The Land Before Time (the 1988 original).
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Averted in 2017 after being in limbo for years.
  • Real-Life Relative: In the Mexican Spanish dub, Scat and Flapper's voice actors (Israel and Carlos Magaña) are brothers in Real Life, while Crusty's voice actor (the late Carlos Magaña) was their father.
  • Screwed by the Network: Dink in terms of Cartoon Network and Boomerang reruns is one that in the earliest of days ran here and there before being dumped fairly quickly. The entry above on circulation before the dvd release made the joke you could see it on Boomerang at 4 in the morning, and that hadn't been true for several years before that.
