It depressed the hell out of me when I was eight and it depresses the hell out of me now.
Well played, puppet dinosaur genocide TV show.

The broadcaster's last name is Handupme.
Also, I forgot how badly the dead eyes of the tricero-boss frightened me.
It's funny, we can't really kill off the Simpsons the same way.
They'd probably have Lisa sing some terrible song as they all died.
Actually, that would be pretty funny.

Grandpa would be the only one that survives, and the eulogy would be one long winded rant, with something about tax cuts thrown in.
Baby or old woman. Any bets?

I remember the crappy TGIF in between promos that ABC used to do, filled with happy teenagers in bright clothing talking happily about shows both before and after this aired. That pretty much made the entire experience of this episode that much more surreal.

wow, they actually ended the show this way?, kind of feels like doing a 9/11 episode on Seinfeld
Thiis show -- and all dinosaur related shows -- will forever be tainted by this guy who was a pretty prominent poster back on some local BBSes way back. He posted a message one day describing, in unfortunate detail, about how he had a "thing" for dinosaur feet and had been hiding it for years. The only way he could get off was by watching Dinosaurs or Dinosorcerers (I think that was the name). I was still a teenager at the time, and this was my very first run-in with a weird fetish, introduced to me by way of the Internet -- or what would kind of become the Internet. I should have gotten rid of my computer for good then and there.
This is a terrible way to start the day.
The Disney logo at the end is a nice touch.
Oh, I get it! So the baby hitting the father in the head with a frying pan was an allegory for impotent forces of social progress asserting themselves against the myopic, materialist herds of the complacent.
"I'm the baby; gotta love me." All of a sudden it rings so true.
Not the promised ones!
More shows need to end like this.

I loved this ending so much.
The baby finally dies!
The show is called "Dinosaurs", how did you expect it to end?
This is correct, every single dinosaur died this way.
Awesome ending, even if it's also incredibly heavy-handed.

I remember coming home from baseball practice to watch the tape I recorded of this episode; I thought it was a two-parter and I'd failed to record the second half. One childhood trauma resolved.
|Lauritz Melchior |
I ... uh ... did a children's show just end with the apocalypse?
Damn you Evilhead for posting while I was watching the clip.
|Unmerciful Crushing Force |
This tied with Home Movie's ending as most out-of-left-field tear-jerker in my book. Heavy-handed yes, but also sincere.
Why couldn't they have done something like this with Full House?
"Michelle, honey...your ol' Uncle Jesse really screwed up this time."
"*UNINTELLIGIBLE OLSEN TWIN ACTING*"
"Well, no, munchkin...see, there's not gonna be a secret Tanner Family bomb shelter under the basement/garage/Joey's apartment that we can hide in. Come to think of it, pretty soon, there's not gonna be much of a San Francisco."
"I know I put too much faith in progress and technology, and had too little respect for nature..."
THIS IS WHAT LIBERALS ACTUALLY BELIEVE CONSERVATIVES ACTUALLY BELIEVE.
Jesus fucking christ, you mincing faggots. Five stars for retarded.
Holy crap. So could somebody please tell me exactly how they caused the ice that killed them all? I never really did get to watch this show so I have no idea.
