He's my friend.
And a whole lot more.
A forbidden time traveling dinosaur romance genre could have been a thing.

I love the pseudo-educational segment about dinosaurs (12:00), as if that somehow makes up for the rest of the show. Tell me, Tress MacNeille, what species exactly is Denver supposed to be?
(if you're really curious, at 32:30 a scientist reveals that Denver is a previously unknown species of dinosaur, the Funtasaurus)

How did Denver know what a football lineman does, two minutes after hatching?
Also, maybe I'm missing something here, but what exactly is wrong with Morton Fizzback's plan? He wants to put Denver in a badass rock band and send him on tour to Japan. JAPAN. ON TOUR.
All those selfish kids want to do is keep Denver locked in a fucking gym all day and then stare at him after they leave school. They don't even offer to FEED Denver, for craps sake. But Mr Fizzback, fat and pedo-looking though he may be, he wants to give Denver a job. A really sweet job! So, it's either a life of loud guitars and snorting coke off the tits of Japanese strippers, or... get locked in a fucking gym by a bunch of asshole teenagers who think they "own" you.
WHY are we supposed to side with the kids?!
The kids are just thinking ahead. Fizzback's plan will invariably lead Denver down the path of drug abuse, mental anguish, and emotional breakdown, eventually dooming him to a lifetime of VH1 appearances.
No dinosaur should have to earn a paycheck by appearing on VH1.

Because the kids are totally attuned to the youth of today, man! Old people are, like, so old!
Also, Denver's ancient, but it's the cool kind of ancient! Dude! He's got the power to insert himself into an episode of Regular Show, or something!

I do not own this on VHS now, but 5 or 6 years ago I did.

Some day I will make a video collecting all of the references to Magritte, Nietzsche and Kant in the background art of Maxie's World.

I have a Denver animation cel.

Why does my brain know this song in it's entirety? What did I DO in the 90's!?

I like that the biggest concerns a dinosaur would have in being born in the 1990s are:
being stared at on the street by tourists
shady semi-retarded rock band promoters ("I don't know what that thing is.") Really? I mean...really? What do you think Denver is, an airplane?
Mario's parents problems, however, are quite infinite.

Questions from watching the first five minutes:
- Was this pilot actually a two-parter or honest-to-God an HOUR LONG special?
- Did producers in the 90's not have the foresight to realize that in 2013, us jaded, desensitized types would see 0:17 as a total gangbang in progress?
- Is it customary for Californians to all knock down and grope a cartoon dinosaur they just met?
- Why does the narrator sound like she's the same lady from the "Grand Theft Auto Online" preview? Or a video about puberty?
- Why do these characters seem so awkward?
- Are they going to beat that bully to death with their skateboards, like an animated version of the fight scene from "KIDS?"
Nice build-up to there eventually being a dinosaur, I guess.
