Dino Babies was an educational cartoon spotlighting six young dinosaurs who share stories and adventures.
In each episode, the Dinobabies put their own imaginative spin on a classic tale, from “Dak and the Beanstalk” to “The Abominable Snowbaby.” As fun as these flights of fancy were, they always had something important to say about the dinosaurs themselves and the world around them. By acting out classic tales, the dinosaurs learned valuable moral lessons, which hopefully the kids at home picked up as well.
The group’s unofficial leader and chief storyteller was Truman, a bespectacled blue brainiac with a tuft of orange hair. Headstrong purple dinosaur LaBrea (the only female Dinobaby) often challenged Truman’s authority, but she was a good friend at heart. Spotted danger-seeker Stanley, nervous Franklin, diaper-wearing daredevil Marshall (Franklin’s little brother) and attention-starved pterodactyl Dak rounded out the group.
