* TheEighties: Very steeped in it due to the decade. Needless to say, it's an UnintentionalPeriodPiece.

* TheKiddieRide: Not officially licensed, but Zamperla produced a ''Denver'' kiddie ride in their earlier years. Given that the show was popular in Italy (where Zaperla originates from) and their poor copyright track records where kiddie rides are concerned, it's probably expected.

A French-American co-production, ''Denver the Last Dinosaur'' is an {{animated series}} from [[TheEighties the 1980's]] (as if you needed to be told) about a group of UsefulNotes/LosAngeles teens that find the last dinosaur egg in existence and teach the hatchling, Denver, all about skateboarding, rocking out on guitar, and generally being {{totally radical}}. It lasted for 52 episodes and then was promptly forgotten, along with [[WesternAnimation/DinkTheLittleDinosaur some of the other remnants]] of the late-80's / early 90's dinosaur mania. The little nostalgia for the series is mostly because of that kick-ass theme song. Fun fact: most of the cast consisted of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle voice actors (CamClarke, RobPaulsen, TownsendColeman, even Adam Carl who voiced Donatello in the second live action film) which just adds to the late 1980s period piece feel as these actors arguably did the {{totally radical}} angle better than anyone else.

Added DiffLines:

* HaveAGayOldTime: The lyrics "he's my friend and a whole lot more" would nowadays imply that the subject is a romantic partner. This being the 80's and both the singer and the subject of the song being male (not to mention the latter being a ''dinosaur'' as well)...

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Jeremy looks and dresses like a stereotypical jock, but he's the most erudite member of the cast, often speaking with SesquipedalianLoquaciousness.


* ShowWithinAShow: Apparently in the universe of ''Denver'', there was a crossover show between Lion ''Anime/{{Voltron}''} and Vehicle ''Voltron''. You get to see about a second of it in one episode when a TV is changing channels quickly. (Keep in mind that ''Denver's'' production company, Creator/WorldEventsProductions, Events, is the same group that dubbed ''Voltron'' for Western audiences.)

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitchCredits: Despite the line "Everywhere we go, we don't even care, if people stop and stare at our pal dino", the characters spend nearly the whole of the first few episodes fretting about whether they've been spotted with the eponymous reptile.
