Do you remember Denver, the Last Dinosaur?
“Denver, the Last Dinosaur, he’s your friend and a whole lot more…” I clearly remember watching this in the mornings before going to elementary school. I absolutely loved this show and the theme song was too too catchy! A little over 50 episodes were produced, but the show developed a cult fanbase.
Denver, the Last Dinosaur revolved around a group of multiracial California teens and the adventures they have with Denver after they release him from his dino egg. Each show taught a lesson that ranged from conservation to ecology to friendship. Because of that Denver, the Last Dinosaur was a big hit with parents and educators.
The show ran for two seasons. It was nationally syndicated throughout the United States in 1988 with reruns airing until 1990.
Fortunately for fans of the series, you can find the Complete Series on DVD.
