Dinosaucers, the other Half of the Dino Power Hour

In the late 1980s the USA Network ran the “Dino Power Hour”, which featured “Denver the Last Dinosaur” and the tragically overlooked “Dinosaucers”. The show was well produced, involved dinosaurs and was ready made for a toyline. Yet no toys ever made it past the prototype phase and even though they made a whopping 65 episodes of the show, very few of the episodes have made it to home video. Only Season 1 is Available as VOD through Amazon.

The show did have some similarities to the Transformers in that you had two factions coming to earth and battling for resources. But Dinosaucers was totally different because it was about Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs!

Interested or just miss Dinosaucers? Here is part 1 of episode 1 of the series. If you search on YouTube you will find part 2 and a couple of other episodes.

    I watched dinosaucers before school every morning back in the 80s (after it’s original afternoon run, which I also watched religously). I also watched it some when it was on USA, but since I had already seen every episode a dozen times by then, I wasn’t as enthusiastic about it as I had been previously. It’s a very good show.

    I loved this show for the brief time it was on. Now that you mention it, it never did have any toys associated with it. Very odd for a decade where more often than not toys generated the show, not vice versa…
