I will always remember the episode when the son (can't remember his name... Robbie, maybe?) started taking "steroids", and got real aggressive and 'roidy. Hilarity.
The whole world's wild at heart and weird on top.

This is a snakeskin jacket. And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

The grandma and the baby were the best part of that show. The other kids always kinda bugged me.

I loved this show.

I remember the last episode and how sad it was. Earl--was that his name?--had caused a nuclear winter-type accident, and we ended on him wrapped in a blanket, looking out the window as the ice age began. Creepy.

I'm the baby, gotta love me!!!!

I'd forgotten all about this show, it was great (though, that was 15 years ago, we'll have to see how well it holds up).

Definitely need to rent these babies.

I wonder how it was thought up.

"I know, let's create a comedy show where dinosaurs had survived and have evolved into anthropomorphic creatures who had watched too many episodes of The Flintstones."

I've caught this on the Disney channel a few times, strikes me as being a bit of a Simpsons rip off, kind of like they felt since they're using dinosaurs no one would notice how liberally they borrowed a bunch of other elements.

Well, the entire show is a rip off of something, The Honeymooners, The Simpsons, The Flintstones, etc., etc. I still remember enjoying it, I guess I prefer to look at it as an homage...

Do you remember the episode where Robbie does the Mating Dance? They watch a grainy educational film about wearing "protective footwear". Loved it.

Also, I like how they tackled racism via the two-leggers vs. the four-leggers.

come to think of it, that's a rip off of (errrr, homage to) a Bloom County strip. It may not have been intentional, though. Funny as hell, as I remember it.
