Today is throwback Thursday, and it’s time to dig a hopeful franchise out of Disney’s personal time capsule. While we have had a few franchise from the past such as Gargoyles and the Rocketeer. But I bet we can pull some more obscure franchise into the game.
Let’s take a look at what we have this week
This week, we go way back in time to 60 million BC at Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs is the Muppets distant cousins as it take place in a time where Dinosaurs of pangea create a somewhat civilized community inspired by the late 90s. It’s follows the Sinclair family as the bumbling and not-so-bright patriarch, Earl, is just trying to keep his family safe from the primitive landscape they call home. But, the turn of the century makes it a bit challenging as it leads him on a series of misadventures. But, he learns to change with the world with his loving wife, Fran, socially inclined teenage son, Robbie, middle child teenage daughter, Charlene, and their mischievous infant son, Baby. Together, they go through the ups and downs of an ever changing society as they try to live in a world where tradition and progress can co-exist peacefully.
Not as well known as the Muppets, Seasme Street, and Fraggle Rock (why the last two were not included when Disney bought Jim Henson’s assets is beyond me) but it’s a franchise worth looking into. With a cast of essentric and charming characters, they can make for a creative skillset.
Now I want to hear from you, do you think that Dinosaurs have a chance of getting in the game on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being they are really eligible and one being not eligible at all.
Make sure you come back next Thursday for another throwback entry to this series.
