Description

The show follows the Dinosaucers and their battles against the evil Tyrannos. Each group is composed of intelligent anthropomorphic dinosaurs or other prehistoric reptilian species. The Dinosaucers are also allied with four humans known as the Secret Scouts. The two groups originally come from a planet in a counter-Earth orbit known as Reptilon. Most of the characters are named after the type of creature they are based off of, or some pun of the name. Anthropomorphism, also referred to as personification or prosopopeia, is the attribution of human characteristics to inanimate objects, animals, forces of nature, and others. ... The eight planets and three dwarf planets of the Solar System. ... Counter-Earth is an Earth-like hypothetical planet, usually sharing an orbit with Earth but on the opposite side of the Sun. ... It has been suggested that dajare be merged into this article or section. ...


Both groups have a central base of operations. The Dinosaucers' base is called Lava Dome and is located in a mountain area, in a dormant volcano. The Tyrannos' base is located under a tar pit. Each of the groups' members, save for Teryx and Terrible Dactyl, have flying ships to travel around and even do battle with. Most ships actually resemble the personae of their respective owners. Along with their individual ships, both groups have a large mothership of sorts as well. A tar pit, or more properly asphalt pit, is a geological occurrence where subterranean bitumen leaks to the surface, creating a large puddle, pit, or lake of asphalt. ... A mothership is a vessel or aircraft that carries a smaller vessel or aircraft that operates independently from it. ...


The Dinosaucers have a special ability to "dinovolve", or transform into the actual creature on which their character is based. The key advantage of this ability is that after the transformation, they retain the intelligence and speech abilities of their anthropomorphic form. The Tyrannos don't have the secret of dinovolving, however they do possess a special raygun called a devolver. Blasting a living creature with this weapon has the same "devolving" effect as dinovolving, but also reduces the victim's intelligence and removes the ability to speak. The Tyrannos also possess a weapon called a "fossilizer", which is capable of turning its target into stone, as well as reversing the condition. // Rayguns are a type of directed-energy weapon. ... Three small ammonite fossils, each approximately 1. ...

Allo is the leader of the Dinosaucers. He is by far the mostly commonly seen good guy in the series. Allo has a kind persona, but takes things seriously. He wears blue and teal armor, a teal helmet, and has brown skin. He has a wife named Vera, a daughter named Alloetta and even a maid named Gatormaid. He is the nephew of the Dinosorceror and Dinosorceress (rulers of Reptilon). Allo is an evolved Allosaurus. Image File history File links Dinosaucersgroup. ...

Dimetro is another member of the Dinosaucers and Allo's assistant. Dimetro is the scientist/mechanic of the group. He wears brown and red armor, a blue mask on his head, has aqua green skin and speaks with a slight Scottish accent. Dimetro is an evolved Dimetrodon. (Note: Technically the Dimetrodon is not a dinosaur, but is commonly mistaken for one.) Scottish English is usually taken to mean the standard form of the English language used in Scotland, often termed Scottish Standard English. ... This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...


Bronto Thunder, despite his name, is an evolved Apatosaurus. (Genghis Rex verifies this in episode 5: Divide and Conquer. The Brontosaurus never actually existed; it was the body of an Apatosaurus with the head of a Camarasaurus.) Often considered to be the second-in-command of the Dinosaucers, he usually takes command when Allo is away from Lava Dome. Bronto Thunder has a girlfriend back on Reptilon named Apatty Saurus, and was a "rep" for a ceramic tile shop before he became a Dinosaucer. Bronto Thunder's name is an example of a tautology, as "bronto" means "thunder" in Ancient Greek. Species Apatosaurus ajax Apatosaurus excelsus Apatosaurus louisae Apatosaurus (pronounced ) meaning deceptive lizard, because its chevron bones were like those of Mosasaurus (Greek apatelos or apatelios = deceptive + sauros = lizard), often mistakenly referred to as Brontosaurus, is a genus of sauropod dinosaurs that lived about 140 million years ago, during the Jurassic... Binomial name Apatosaurus excelsus (Marsh, 1879) vide Riggs, 1903 Synonyms Brontosaurus excelsus Marsh, 1879c Brontosaurus (pronounced ), meaning thunder lizard (from the Greek brontē/βροντη meaning thunder and sauros/σαυρος meaning lizard), is a deprecated genus of sauropod dinosaurs. ... Species (holotype) The Camarasaurus (pronounced KAM-a-rah-SORE-us) was a genera of quadrupedal, herbivorous dinosaurs. ... In rhetoric, a tautology is a use of redundant language in speech or writing, or, put simply, saying the same thing twice. // Tautology, often regarded as a fault of style, was defined by Fowler as saying the same thing twice. In fact, it is not necessary for the entire meaning... Note: This article contains special characters. ...


Stego is an evolved Stegosaurus and a rather dim-witted recruit when compared to the rest of the team. He tries to be brave, but is prone to panic attacks and general cowardice. Stego can pull his head inside his Dinosaucers' uniform, much like a turtle. Species Marsh, 1877 (type) Marsh, 1887 Gilmore, 1914 Stegosaurus (IPA pronunciation ) is a genus of stegosaurid armoured dinosaur from the Late Jurassic period (Kimmeridgian to Early Tithonian) of what is now western North America. ...


Tricero is an evolved Triceratops. He had a history for doing investigative work back on Reptilon, and provides a voice of calm reason. Tricero was a member of the law-enforcing Tricerocops on Reptilon before he became a Dinosaucer. Species (type) Marsh, 1890 Triceratops (IPA: ) was a herbivorous genus of ceratopsid dinosaur that lived during the late Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period, around 68 to 65 million years ago (mya) in what is now North America. ... This article does not cite its references or sources. ...


Bonehead is Allo's nephew. Has a baby brother named Numbskull (Nummy). Mother Bonehilda is a famous scientist, and Allo's sister. Bonehead is an evolved Pachycephalosaurus. Binomial name Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis (Gilmore, 1931) Pachycephalosaurus (the thick headed lizard, from the Greek pachy-/παχυ- meaning thick, cephale/κεφαλη meaning head and saurus/σαυρος meaning lizard) was a dinosaur of the family Pachycephalosauridae, from the Late Cretaceous Period of what is now North America. ...


Ichy, whose name is pronounced "Icky", is an evolved Ichthyosaur. (Note: Technically an Ichthyosaur is not a dinosaur, but is commonly mistaken for one.) Ichy (and Plesio) can talk to sea creatures. Families Ichthyosauridae Leptonectidae Mixosauridae Ophthalmosauridae Shastasauridae Stenopterygiidae Teretocnemidae Ichthyosaurs (Greek for fish lizard - ιχθυς meaning fish and σαυρος meaning lizard) were giant marine reptiles that resembled fish and dolphins. ...


Teryx is an evolved Archaeopteryx and the only female Dinosaucer. (Note: There is a debate as to whether the Archaeopteryx was a dinosaur or the first bird, it seems to be something of a missing link between the two.) Teryx has a crush on Ichy, but fears it won't work out because she is a flying creature, while Ichy swims. Teryx used to be an actress on Reptilon's daytime television before she became a Dinosaucer. Binomial name Archaeopteryx lithographica Meyer, 1861 Synonyms see text Archaeopteryx (from Ancient Greek αρχαιος archaios meaning ancient and πτερυξ pteryx meaning feather or wing;[1] pronounced ), from the late Jurassic Period (Kimmeridgian stage, 155-150 million years ago) of what is now Germany, is the earliest and most primitive known avian. ...


Secret Scouts

The Secret Scouts are four teenage humans that help the Dinosaucers as allies. According to the opening credits they met them when they first arrived and gained powers through magic rings they were given. They are some of the closest friends the Dinosaucers have while they are on Earth.

Ryan Spencer is a blond haired male teenager that seems to be the smartest and most athletic of the group. He doesn't seem to get into as much trouble as his three friends do. He is Sara's brother. Image File history File links Secret-scouts. ... Image File history File links Secret-scouts. ...


Sara Spencer is a blond haired female teenager and the only girl of the Secret Scouts. She is quite athletic and informative often teaching the Dinosaucers, albeit confusing to them, Earth related notions. With her ring power she can jump at amazing heights for short periods of time. She has a pet cat named Missy. Often goes on adventures with Bronto Thunder and relates very well to the only female Dinosaucer, Teryx. She is Ryan's sister.


Paul (surname unknown/not given) is an African American male teenager who seems to find the Dinosaucers thrilling and fun. He is often involved with various adventures with Stego and Bonehead. He also has a pet dog named Charlie who has caused a lot of trouble for the Dinosaucers in various episodes.


David (surname unknown/not given) is a black haired teenage male who is the wild one of the bunch. Often getting into trouble and making matters worse by getting the Dinosaucers involved in his "act first and think second" tactics. He is strong and athletic, but probably the least intelligent of the Secret Scouts.


Tyrannos

The Tyrannos are the forces of evil in the series and have a total of 7 members in their group.

The Evil Tyranos . (From left to right) Styraco, Plesio, Genghis Rex, Quackpot, Brachio, Ankylo and Terrible Dactyl
The Evil Tyranos . (From left to right) Styraco, Plesio, Genghis Rex, Quackpot, Brachio, Ankylo and Terrible Dactyl

Genghis Rex is the leader of the Tyrannos. He is sometimes referred to as simply "Rex" and is by far the most commonly seen bad guy in the series. He wears orange and blue armor and has red skin. Genghis Rex is an evolved Tyrannosaurus Rex. Image File history File links Tyranos. ... Image File history File links Tyranos. ... Binomial name Tyrannosaurus rex Osborn, 1905 Synonyms Manospondylus gigas Dynamosaurus imperiosus Dinotyrannus megagracilis Nanotyrannus lancensis? Tyrannosaurus (IPA pronunciation or ; from the Greek τυραννόσαυρος, meaning tyrant lizard) is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur. ...


Typically, Rex will insult his minions with plays on dinosaur words or names, such as idiot-tops or tail-for-brains, whenever things do not go according to his plans. In exchange, Rex endures being called many flattering and important sounding names by the other Tyrannos, such as Bossasaur and Your Scaliness. A running gag throughout the series is that, for some reason, Rex strongly objects to the use of the term Chiefasaur when addressing him.


Genghis Rex was in love with Teryx and even wanted to marry her, but she was in love with Ichy. Genghis' parents were the king and queen of Reptilon, though it's unknown how far they've ruled on the planet. Genghis even has an equally evil sister named Princess Dei who is an evolved Deinonychus with yellow skin.


Ankylo is Genghis Rex's dimwitted assistant and is another member of the Tyrannos. He is probably the second most commonly seen bad guy in the series. Ankylo makes snorting noises when speaking sometimes. He wears grey armor, has red skin and has a special weapon called the Anklebuster which creates a chain made out of energy, often used to disable the Dinosaucers. Ankylo is an evolved Ankylosaurus. Species Ankylosaurus (pronounced ) meaning stiffened lizard, because of its hard dermal armor (Greek ankylo = stiffen + sauros = lizard) was the last, largest, and most famous of the armored dinosaurs known as the Ankylosaurians. ...


Quackpot is an evolved Hadrosaurus. Quackpot is the practical joker of the group, using his pranks to his advantage, and sometimes his disadvantage. Like Ankylo, Quackpot is red. Quackpot makes a quacking sound in comparison to his appearance. Quackpot was the star of a children's television show back on Reptilon called Duckbill's Playhouse, under the stage name T.B. Duckbill. Binomial name Hadrosaurus foulkii Leidy, 1858 Hadrosaurus (Greek:sturdy lizard) is a hadrosaurid dinosaur genus. ... Childrens television series are television programmes designed for and marketed to children, normally aired during the morning and afternoon hours, mainly before and after school. ...


Brachio is an evolved Brachiosaurus. Brachio is the typical stupid thug of the gang and is gray. Species (type) ?B. (Giraffatitan) brancai Brachiosaurus (IPA: ) meaning Arm Lizard, from the Greek brachion/βραχιων meaning arm and sauros/σαυρος meaning lizard, was a genus of sauropod dinosaur which lived during the Late Jurassic Period. ...


Styraco is an evolved Styracosaurus. Styraco is the evil counterpart of Tricero and was formerly a dentist working at the office of Pinchem, Pullem & Yankem before joining Genghis Rex on Earth. He is very likely one of the least seen Tyrannos in the series. Species Styracosaurus (meaning spiked lizard from Greek styrax/στυραξ spike at the butt-end of a spear-shaft and saurus/σαυρος lizard) was a herbivorous ceratopsian dinosaur from the Cretaceous Period, about 77 to 74 million years ago. ... A Dentist and Dental Assistant perform surgery on a patient. ... Adjectives: Terrestrial, Terran, Telluric, Tellurian, Earthly Atmosphere Surface pressure: 101. ...


Plesio is an evolved Plesiosaur. (Note: Technically a Plesiosaur is not a dinosaur, but is commonly mistaken for one.) Plesio is cunning and shifty, is pink, looks like a dragon, the evil counterpart of Ichy and sometimes uses his ship as a sub. Like Ichy, Plesio can talk to sea creatures. Plesio used to work for Slither, Slither & Shark, Attorneys at Law on Reptilon before becoming a Tyranno. Families Plesiosaurs (IPA ) (Greek: plesios, near to + sauros, lizard) were large, carnivorous aquatic reptiles. ... For information on the type of fish called Lawyer, see the article on Burbot. ...


Terrible Dactyl is the flying member of the Tyrannos. He speaks with a British accent. He wears a pilot mask, purple armor, and a white scarf and has orange skin. Terrible Dactyl is an evolved Pteranodon, though commonly referred to as a Pterodactyl. (Note: Technically Pteranodons, Pteradactyls, and other Pterosaurs, are not dinosaurs, but are commonly mistaken for them.) In a large proportion of the episodes, Terrible Dactyl begins the conflict between the Dinosaucers and Tyrannos by observing some "suspicious" activity and reporting it to Genghis Rex. Aside from Genghis Rex, he is generally the most competent of the Tyrannos. Species (type) Pteranodon (from Greek πτερ- wing and αν-οδων toothless), from the Late Cretaceous (santonian-campanian, 85-82 million years ago) of North America (Kansas, Alabama, Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota) was one of the largest pterosaur genera, with a wingspan of up to 9 m (30 feet). ...


Minor characters

The Dinosorceror and Dinosorceress are the leaders of Reptilon. They prefer to rule at arms length, staying out of the squabbles of the Dinosaucers and Tyrannos as parents would their children. They are very powerful, as shown in episodes where they levitate objects and heal deadly diseases. In addition to everything, they are also Allo's uncle and aunt. They possess a "Book of Reptilonian Wisdom" which predicts the future.


Apatty Saurus is an evolved Apatosaurus and is Bronto Thunder's girlfriend on Reptilon. She is an expert swamp boater and became a partner at the Color Rep-Tiles tile shop, where Bronto Thunder once worked, sometime after Bronto left for Earth. Species Apatosaurus ajax Apatosaurus excelsus Apatosaurus louisae Apatosaurus (pronounced ) meaning deceptive lizard, because its chevron bones were like those of Mosasaurus (Greek apatelos or apatelios = deceptive + sauros = lizard), often mistakenly referred to as Brontosaurus, is a genus of sauropod dinosaurs that lived about 140 million years ago, during the Jurassic... An air boat Air boats, also called fan boats, are flat-bottomed punts powered by a propeller attached to an automobile or aircraft engine. ... Adjectives: Terrestrial, Terran, Telluric, Tellurian, Earthly Atmosphere Surface pressure: 101. ...


Major Clifton appears in a couple episodes, although it is never revealed when he and the Dinosaucers first met. He is portrayed as a US Air Force officer who is trying to discover the truth about the Dinosaucers, at the expense of his reputation. He knows the Secret Scouts know about the Dinosaucers and confides in them about his theories, although the scouts try never to verify them. The United States Air Force (USAF) is the aerial warfare branch of the United States armed forces and one of the seven uniformed services. ...


Princess Dei is an evolved Deinonychus with yellow-green skin who is Genghis Rex's older sister. She appears a few times in episodes where the cast returns to Reptilon. It is generally believed that she is the leader of the Tyrannos' movement on Reptilon. Her name is an obvious reference to Princess Di. Binomial name Deinonychus antirrhopus Ostrom, 1969 Deinonychus (IPA ) meaning terrible claw (Greek δεινος meaning terrible and ονυξ/ονυχος meaning claw) was a jaguar-sized, carnivorous dromaeosaurid dinosaur species from the Early Cretaceous Period. ... Diana, Princess of Wales (Diana Frances Mountbatten-Windsor, née Spencer) (1 July 1961–31 August 1997), commonly, but incorrectly, known as Princess Diana, was for fifteen years the wife of HRH The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. ...


The Furballs, Ugh and Grunt, are balls of fur who are equivalent to quite-intelligent pets on Reptilon. They get into trouble more often then not in each episode in which they appear, but end up saving the day for the Dinosaucers since Tyrannos are allergic to them.


Trivia

  • It was DiC Entertainment's first show to feature the "Kid in Bed" after the ending credits.
  • There were originally plans to release a Dinosaucers toyline, and prototype figures were produced, however the line was scrapped after the show was cancelled.
  • The show and its characters were actually owned by the Coca-Cola company and featured a logo for Coca-Cola Telecommunications. This was because Coke owned Columbia Pictures during this time period. The show is presumably now owned by Sony, after its acquisition of Columbia but this has not been confirmed.
  • The characters making an appearance changed from episode to episode; however, Genghis Rex appeared in every episode except for episode 13 (Trick or Cheat) in which Quackpot was the sole Tyranno to appear.
  • All the Dinosaucers had a button on their uniform that would instantly devolve them to their unevolved dinosaur state while retaining their intelligence and speech capacity, but most episodes didn't contain any dinovolving. Teryx was the only Dinosaucer who would never dinovolve throughout the series. Tricero, Bonehead and Bronto Thunder would use the ability in more than one episode.
  • While they couldn't Dinovolve, the Tyrannos did have a devolving ray that could change any creature into its primal state. To much comic effect, the device would often wind up being used against them rather than on the Dinosaucers. In this fashion, Genghis Rex, Ankylo, Quackpot and Brachio were all changed into primitive dinosaurs at various times in the series. Unlike when the Dinosaucers Dinovolved, the devolving ray removed the victim's intelligence and ability to speak.
  • Numerous in-jokes peppered the dialogue of each script, such as references to Abbott and Costello sketches in Allo and Cos-Stego Meet the Abominable Snowman, and Allo mentioning that his address on Reptilon is "where Palmer avenue meets Emerson and Lake".
  • Are they really all that bad? During the course of the series, Tyrannos Plesio, Terrible Dactyl and Quackpot would all betray Genghis Rex at least once over matters of conscience.
