  • Special Effects Failure: Though quite impressive for a kid's show in 1991, the special effects (provided by the Chiodo Bros.- who created Large Marge, Philo as an alien and the Killer Klowns from Outer Space) have aged terribly. The dinosaurs have a very flat, pasted-on look about them, and their animations are extremely jerky. Compared to the 70s version though, it's far better — and many of the dinosaur puppets themselves hold up even today.
