In 1991, Dinosaurios—one of the most successful shows of the '90s—premiered on television. Despite being targeted for children, the show became a favorite for adults because of its originality, humor, and conversation on social issues such as religion, feminism, and prejudice, for example.
The final episode of Dinosaurs
Earl, Fran, Robbie, Charlene and of course, baby Sinclair, were a reptile family that lived in a Jurassic period with a modern lifestyle. What most don't remember of the beloved show was that the series was canceled on July 1994 and had one of the most depressing finale's known to children's TV.
Titled Changing Nature, the last episode makes references to climate changes and the negative impacts of progress on the environment. In the last episode, the family is caught in the middle of a dramatic extinction.
Aware of the deadly Ice Age, the dinosaur family says goodbye, promising to stay together "until the end." The last few minutes of the scene shows one of the characters saying "good night and goodbye" followed by a house invaded by snow and sad music in the background. #ImNotCryingYoureCrying
