My kids really loved this one, and the vivid colors even caught my toddlers attention. She doesn’t watch a lot of tv yet and won’t take a second glance at many cartoons but she will actually sit and watch this one! My boys liked it too which was another shock. Each episode starts off with the Pteranodon family announcing a new field trip where they will introduce a new species. Since they use the scientific words for each dinosaur, there were a lot of long words that the kids didn’t understand but it didn’t seem to bother them at all. This one is a definite new favorite in my house and is entertaining & educational for all ages!

The eight episodes include:

Elmer Elasmosaurus

Carla Cretoxyrhina

The Amazing Michelinoceras Brothers

Paulie Pliosaurus

Elmer Visits the Desert

Shiny’s Sea Shells
