Shownotes

For this episode, Tom teaches Morgan about the surprisingly-brilliant ’90s sitcom Dinosaurs, which probably shouldn’t have worked on paper.

Dinosaurs was one in a string of odd sci-fi/fantasy-based sitcoms that did the business back in the ’80s and ’90s, alongside the likes of Harry and the Hendersons and 3rd Rock from the Sun.

Co-created by the late Jim Henson, the Simpsons-style sitcom followed Earl and his family, with Baby ‘Not the Momma’ becoming its breakout star. Gotta love me!

In the episode, we look back at his harrowing finale episode, hear about how they almost teamed up with the Turtles, and how Tom’s admiration of ‘cool’ Robbie reminded Morgan of Rudedog and the Dweebs.

We also pay tribute to Dinosaurs voice star Jessica Walter, who sadly passed away on the day of recording the episode.
