Saturday Morning Cartoon: Dino-Riders
You start to hear the sounds of the morning, the wind rustling the leaves, the chirping of the birds and that’s when you realize what day it is–Saturday! Cartoons! All week long you’ve been starved of cartoons, and now it is your time to feast! You throw off the covers, shove your feet in your slippers and sprint downstairs!
Grab that big bowl of C-3POs, adjust the antennae and plop down on the floor for your weekly dose of animated fun!
This week: Dino-Riders
“…ripped a hole in the fabric of time…”
Ha! I wonder how many times I heard that phrase in 80’s cartoons? This show is obviously based on a toyline, but what a toyline! How can you go wrong action figures that ride vehicles attached to dinosaurs that shoots lasers to fight aliens?!
In this show, as soon as the good guys land on the planet they make friends with all the dinosaurs and the bad guys brainwash their dinosaurs–how typical! If I landed on an alien planet filled with Dinosaurs, I would be too worried about getting eaten, but I guess that’s just me…
This show is filled with every voice actor you are familiar with, the animation isn’t bad and the story is laughable. An interesting side note: this might be one of the first times that the dinosaurs are animated not to be “tail draggers”.
Why is it taking so long to clone Dinosaurs?! I want to do some Dino-riding instead of my car for my daily commute! I mean, c’mon, a T-rex has to be street-safe right?
