Nick Jr.’s favorite young paleontologist has a new DVD out that’s fun for the whole family. “Dino Dan: ‘Twas A Dinosaur” offers audiences five more episodes that will get young audiences out digging for fossils themselves. In this latest DVD release, it’s winter time in Dan’s hometown. And being Winter, Dan learns in the episode, “He Shoots, He Roars” that while some dinosaurs were warm blooded, others weren’t. He learns this when a paleontologist named Jim and his dino puppet friend, “Denny” visit the class. Jim teaches the class that the difference between warm and cold blooded dinosaurs was in their ability to move in cold weather. Jim tells the class that warm blooded dinosaurs moved quickly in cold weather. But cold blooded dinosaurs moved slowly in cold weather. So Dan decides to test this with one of his dino buddies during recess. Younger viewers can find out the reaction of that dino when their parents pick up this DVD.
Dan’s lesson about warm and cold blooded dinosaurs is just one of a handful taught in this new collection of episodes. Dan (and viewers) learns about a theory that dino gas may have actually been to blame for the extinction of dinosaurs in the episode, “Gas-o-saurus.” It should be noted again that this is merely a theory. It’s also very similar to a current theory about methane gases released by cows being a cause for temperature changes in the earth’s atmosphere. How Dan comes to learn about this theory will have both parents and kids alike laughing. And how the story keeps having the word “fart” covered up throughout the episode (yes, I said fart) will have parents and their kids laughing, too.
Dan learns some great lessons about dinosaurs in this new DVD compilation. Parents and kids alike will enjoy these lessons. Even more though, they’ll enjoy the revamped take on the classic holiday poem, ‘Twas the Night before Christmas. In the episode, “‘Twas a Dinosaur”, Dan offers his classmates a modern take on the classic starring his dino buddies instead of Old Saint Nick. Audiences are given a visual of the poem as Dan reads it to his classmates. It makes for a great, original take on a holiday classic that the whole family will love as the holidays get closer.
Whether it be a new take on a classic poem, or learning lessons about dinosaurs, “Dino Dan: ‘Twas A Dinosaur” offers loads of enjoyment for the entire family. There are even more lessons for families in the episodes, “Tooth or Consequences” and “A Winter Tail.” And there’s even more fun thanks to Dino Dan’s Dino Field Guide in the bonus features. Dan features the largest of the dinosaurs, the Brachiosaurus, in the field guide this time out, as well as the Stegosaurus. Families can even get a free dino app for their tablet computers through this new release. The DVD is available in stores and online now. It can be ordered online direct via NCircle Entertainment’s website at http://www.NCircleEntertainment.com.
