10 reasons Dinosaurs was the best sitcom ever shown on Network 2

Not the momma.

FOR ANY IRISH kid who had The Channels in the nineties, The Dinosaurs was the ultimate sitcom.

It was also shown on Network 2, but you’re never quite sure if it existed or if it was a dream.

IT EXISTED. And it was amazing.

1. It was about a god damn family of dinosaurs

The Sinclair family were family goals.

Earl, Fran, Robbie, Charlene, and Baby. We miss you.

2. Earl was the chillest dad ever

Besides the fact that he was a deadly Meglaosaurus, he put up with baby giving him hell and he still loved him with all his big dinosaur heart.

4. The merch was the most desired of all our childhoods

Remember the McDonald’s toys? So rare, so coveted.


5. The hidden names can only now be truly appreciated

Dinosaur News Network’s Howard Handupme was inspired.

6. Earl’s job was to literally push over trees

The Wesayso Corporation was again, an inspired name.

7. His boss was the scariest dinosaur on the planet

Leave us ALONE.

8. The finale was your first brush with trauma

Remember what happened? Earl’s company causes the ecosystem to go ape and his attempts to fix it brings on the ice age, effectively killing everyone. Pleasant.

Even if you were slightly creepy.
