Denver the Last Dinosaur (originally titled Denver & Cliff) is a French computer-animated children's television series produced by Zagtoon. It is a Continuity Reboot of Denver the Last Dinosaur, a short-lived American cartoon from the late 1980's.

In Bones Town, a small city in the southern United States, lives the Scott family. They've become famous after adopting a small dinosaur named Denver, who they raised together with their son, Cliff. The exploring the daily life of Denver and the Dinopals: Cliff, Charlotte and Super Dan, it's always extraordinary when a dinosaur is thrown into the mix.

Where most kids dream of having a dog, a cat, or even a hamster, Cliff Scott and his family have his adopted brother — a small dinosaur named Denver! Together, Cliff, Denver, and a comedic crew of human friends including Charlotte and Super Dan make the Dinopals, and in their adventures, there’s an inevitable monkey wrench that is always in play –- Denver is a dino in a china shop! Moreover, being one-of-a-kind puts Denver on everyone’s radar.

The series first premiered on M6 in France on August 27, 2018.

Tropes in this series include:

  • Happily Adopted: The Scott family adopted Denver and raised him as one of their own without question.
  • Sweet Tooth: Denver really likes sweets, especially ice cream.
  • Theme Tune: A contemporary version of the 80s series theme song plays over the intro screen.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Denver looks VERY different from his 80s counterpart, resembling a fusion of Yoshi and the GEICO gecko as opposed to the original who resembled a mohawked prosauropod, or perhaps a weird hadrosaur.
