The 90s can definitely be considered an era of strange, yet wonderful television. And the champion of the strange and wonderful had to be the iconic show Dinosaurs. Jim Henson had created these anthropomorphic reptiles just before he passed away, and the producers decided to bring the show to life after his death.

The show centered around the Sinclair family; Earl, Fran, Robbi, Charlene, Baby, and of course Fran's ancient mother, Ethyl.

A lot more went into making the show than you would think, and the level of commitment the puppeteers had to make is absolutely astounding. Imagine having to wear massive costume suits to work that could weigh over 100 pounds?

If you remember the show, you will have noticed that Earl sighed a lot during his dialogue, it was because the puppeteer inside that massive suit needed to be able to see what was happening in front of him. The show only continued because of the dedication of those inside the masks.

Seeing the actors get in and out of those massive costumes must have been quite the sight, and it definitely led to some hilarious backstage moments. Some of those antics were caught on film for everyone to look back on and enjoy.  

I don't think I would have survived 15 minutes in one of those massive suits. I bet you didn't know some of these behind the scenes facts from one of your favorite television shows.
