Cute, lovable Dinosaurs!

Dinosaurs have been depicted as cute and lovable for a long time, but this trend took a while to catch on.
There was a time when the average child didn't even know what a dinosaur was!
As dinosaurs got more and more popular, artists had developed a habit of drawing and painting vicious, gruesome brutes.
But it wasn't long before dinosaurs became wildly popular and the decision to imagine them as adorable cartoon characters proved highly profitable.

The DinoKids Coloring Book is a perfect example of adorable cartoon dinosaur characters!  Sure to charm kids as well as full grown guys and gals - and they're lots of fun to color!

dinosaur nostalgia

Dinosaurs are more popular than ever with kids these days, but we here at King's Castle Coloring Books like to
reminisce about the good ol' days - and that's just what we're going to do right now.

It's hard to make an argument against modern dinosaur toys, from a technical point of view.
Today's toys are more articulated, more animated, and even more scientifically accurate than the simplistic plastic
figures available to kids until the late 1980s.

However, those "simple" toys of yore were just as much fun and provided hours of imaginative playtime.
Among the many toys that appealed particularly to young boys were the elaborate play sets by Marx.
Dozens of themed play sets (and hundreds of variations) were produced and sold between 1950 and 1980.

One look at The Prehistoric Play Set is enough to understand why these sets were so popular.

Like all Marx play sets, it featured a host of wonderfully sculpted characters and accessories.
For the young explorer with a penchant for prehistoric adventures, resistance was futile.
This was the ultimate play set.  The ultimate toy.

Sadly, Marx stopped making sets like these around 1979
and the company was dissolved by the mid-80s.
Still, toy collectors have kept the magic of Marx playsets alive.
Vintage sets like the one pictured here - as well as many other
s are in circulation today
via nostalgia websites and conventions all over the world.

The land of  the Lost

In 1973, a fantastic expedition was underway at Kroft Brother's Studios.
The unchartered territory; a show for kids that takes itself seriously.

The Kroft's had a solid record for producing fun television shows.
Shows that challenged the imagination with whimsy and wonderfully funny costumes.

The Land of The Lost concept was going to rely heavily on optical effects
and deliver genuine drama rather than punch-line driven comedy.

Land of The Lost stands out among Kroft Productions, being an expensive twist on their tried and true
cartoon-style soap operas about teenagers lost in weird worlds.

As the title song goes, Rick Marshall and his teenage kids, Will and Holly, were enjoying a routine adventure
in the wilderness when a rafting excursion goes terribly wrong.

Their camping gear raft was good enough for mild rapids, but they hit a gully that sucked them into a raging storm and
a vast, tumultuous flood plunged them over a massive waterfall a thousand feet below.

Mysteriously, all three of the Marshall's awaken in their undamaged raft on dry land.  A lush jungle.
It's as if they were gently placed there - which is very interesting, but they've got more important things to think about
when a
 giant lizard monster discovers them and is eager to find out what they taste like.

Quick on their feet, the Marshalls find refuge in a cave.
They invent a simple but effective weapon to deter the hungry monster.
The resourceful trio found themselves hopelessly lost in an ancient jungle
and they would come to call this cave home for the rest of their lives.

That was the gist of the Land of The Lost show.  And it was often just that exciting.
Animated dinosaurs made frequent appearances and often served as catalysts for the drama.
But the Marshalls also developed rocky relationships with other denizens of this strange land.
A family of stubborn monkey-people.  A race of vicious lizard-people.  An old selfish wizard.
And they tried to understand the unnatural "pylons" housing treacherous crystal "technology".
Tirelessly searching for a way out of the Land of The Lost, each episode ended with the Marshalls
grateful to have made it through another day with thier lives and their family values intact.

It was probably the "trippiest" show the Krofts ever produced, but it was meant to give kids a genuine sense
of what responsibility looks like rather than simply tickle their funny bones.

It was picked up for another season, but as so often happens with successful television shows,
its appeal dwindled as the stories and characters became recycled, redundant, and replaced.

All good things come to an end - but it warms our hearts to remember a time
when dinosaurs and strange paranormal possibilities were just another Saturday morning away.

The last dinosaur

Back in 1977, a strange hybrid made its way onto television screens.
The Last Dinosaur was an American/Japanese co-production, initially meant for theatrical release
but only managed a few screenings after debuting as a "Late Night" TV movie.

Most of the film was shot in Japan, but with an American cast - and it's very likely the idea for the movie never
would have taken shape if not for the fact that the dinosaur effects were practically "in the can" to begin with.
The production would simply use rubber monster suits and sets already being used in a concurrent Japanese television show!

The story of The Last Dinosaur begins and ends on the hubris of an eccentric tycoon with a passion for hunting.
He's a very unpleasant fellow, interested only in personal gain by way of besting his enemies - and he seems to
consider everybody his enemy.  When he learns that scientists have discovered a strange land inhabited by dinosaurs,
he wastes no time launching a hunting expedition to find and kill a Tyranosaurus Rex!

Bursting with thematic irony and funny rubber dinosaur costumes, The Last Dinosaur is a delightfully charming movie
even though it is often bogged down by clunky dialogue and a bare-bones plot.
