You Would Never Guess What Went On Behind The Scenes Of This Crazy 90s Show

Dinosaurs was one of the strangest but most wonderful TV shows of the 90s. Jim Hensen developed an anthropomorphic dinosaur family just before he passed away, and after his death the show ended up getting made so we got to witness all of its greatness. The Sinclair family contained Earl, Fran, Robbi, Charlene and Baby along with Fran's mother Ethyl and they were all fantastic.

The dinosaurs themselves were quite impressive. They were huge costumes that were worn but the puppet heads moved a lot and made them look pretty great.

Seeing the actors in these costumes must have been an awkward experience, but they all knew how to have fun with it. The enormous costumes really lent themselves to some comedic movements and lucky for us, their backstage antics were recorded and we get to see them.

It is a little strange to see a man walking around in what are essentially dinosaur pants, but you know what, it's also pretty entertaining.

Check out the little clip below, and just imagine how uncomfortable they all must have been wearing those enormous suits!

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


'Clarissa Explains It All' Reboot Is Apparently In The Works, And Melissa Joan Hart Is Involved

We first met Melissa Joan Hart in 1991 when she stepped onto the scene as Clarissa Darling. She was cool, unique, and iconic in her time. She's credited as the first female lead of a Nickelodeon show, and because of her they were able to make many other hit series like The Secret World of Alex Mack and The Amanda Show. But Clarissa was truly one-of-a-kind.  I mean, how many people do you know who owned a baby alligator named Elvis? Her show was different then a lot of others, because she would directly address the audience. She dealt


'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us
