    What is your favorite dinosaur retro show?

    What is your favorite dinosaur related retro tv show? I'm talking early 90s or before. I tried to include all the ones I could think of, but I'm sure I'm leaving off a few. I'll probably be one of the few that pick it, but I'll go with Dink, the Little Dinosaur. I've been watching it on Boomerang lately and still enjoy it.

    I went with Flintstones. For such a blatant ripoff of The Honeymooners, it is one of my favorite TV cartoons of all time. The only other one on that list that I watched on a regular basis was Dinosaurs(if you are talking about the early 90's Henson show on ABC). I liked that as well but it was no Flintstones(it also had a depressing last episode).

    Dinosaucers is my favorite from this list, but The Flintstones is the best on there. I love Dinosaucers, I've been waiting years for them to be released on DVD and still continue to wait. All the episodes are on youtube, but it's not the same.

    Denver had an amazing opening theme.

    I remember Land of the Lost when I was little, but haven't really tried to watch it now.

    Flintstones is an all round great show.

    I loved Dinosaucers.

    I remember watching Dinosaurs but that is about it.

    My biggest issue is, each show is kind of quite different and I find it hard to compare cross genre like that.

    The Original Land of the Lost is best on this list. A close second is Donosaucers. And Dinoriders had an awesome concept, but somehow, I never saw the toon as a kid.

    I wasted to much of my time watching those shows. I will never get that time back.

    So many good shows!!!

    I don't know Dinosaucers, Dink, the Little Dinosaur or Land of the Lost (original)

    I had to choose Flintstones because I really loved that show
    and I have fond memories of playing the NES game as well.
    I even made custom figures out of painters tape when I was a kid.

    Dino-Riders is the 2nd, loved those toys! And the cartoon had this dark thing to it just like the RoboCop and the Ultra Police cartoon from the same cartoon company!
    The Dinosaurs show was awesome! Not the MAMA!!
    I also like the Land of the Lost (remake) with the Porters. I actually re-watched the entire show around a year ago.
    Denver, the Last Dinosaur had a great intro, but the rest of the show doesn't hold up to it anymore imo.

    Denver had the best opening and I've been watching some of its episodes lately from the DVD set, but Dink is still my favorite.
