Dino Time

Synopsis: Three curious kids accidentally trip an egg-shaped time machine into operation and find themselves back 65 million years in the middle of a nest of dinosaur eggs. The first thing they see is a giant T-Rex staring down at them in happy wonder. They're not food, they're family! Now the kids have just until the real eggs hatch to find their way back to the present, facing other prehistoric monsters and dangers along the way.

On a scale of 1 to 10,

rocket boarding is totally a 37!

This is Terra Dino.

Pretty decent place to live.

Especially if you're a

dinosaur fanatic like me!

Did you know that more dinosaur

fossils are discovered...

in our tar pits than anywhere

else in the world.

If you ever want to come here,

I'm an awesome tour guide!

Sorry, Mr Hodges.

Ernie Fitzpatrick!

How dare you!

Hi sis, how was soccer practice?

Mom's gonna be so

mad at you, again!

You know you're supposed to

be watching the store.

Here's a quarter, Jules.

Call someone who cares!

If you can find a pay phone.


She's kinda right about my mom though.

Her head would explode if

she saw me.

But I'm not too worried.

Mom's busy getting ready for

some PTA awards ceremony.

The most important part of being

a parent is setting rules.

Thank you for this award.

Ernie, are you on your way?

Ya, I just stopped to let

Julia borrow some money.

Okay, I'm leaving now. So I'm gonna put

out the Back in 15 minutes sign for you.

- What do I always say, Ernie?

- Leave a note.

So, 15 minutes gives you

until 2:
53 sharp, Okay?

Yup, got it!

I know my mom means well, but

she's always watching me.

I never get a second of freedom.


- Ernie are you at the store yet?

- Getting there.

Okay, well, don't dawdle

just go as fast as you can.

"Back in 15 minutes".

Okay Mom.

" Back in 150 minutes".

You heard her, she

said as fast as I can.


Terra Dino Natural History Museum.

Only the most excellent place on earth.

And this is Mystery Rock.

See that carving, it's been dated all

the way back to the Cretaceous period.

Which is weird, cause who

could have carved it?

No humans were around 145 million years ago.

Just dinosaurs.

Mysterious hah?

Right, that's where we got the name.

Give it back.

That's my best friend Max!

He's way cooler than he thinks he is...

which is what makes him so cool.

But, sometimes the other

kids don't see that.

Do you think Leonardo da Vinci

got picked on as a kid?



Look, something shiney.

What? But where?

Back there.



Ernie, how is the rocket board? On a

scale of 1 to 10... 37, baby!


You and your dad totally outdid

yourselves on this one.

Hey, speaking of my Dad...

He found new fossil

samples at digs 23 and 29.

They're doing the formal unveiling tomorrow.

Too cool! A new exhibit, awesome!

I can't wait.

Wait... But the exhibit isn't open.

And weren't you supposed to be

helping out at your mom's shop.


You sound like my mom with all

her do this do that stuff.

Don't' you know breaking the rules is the

most important part of being a kid.

The most important part of being a

parent is setting rules.

Once you set rules...

the key is making sure they're

followed exactly the way you want.

I do everything she wants me to, just

not exactly the way she wants me to.

It's a compromise.

No compromises.

A good goal is to make observance

of the rules a family project.

That of course doesn't

mean I endorse tattling.

Ready to begin. Operation

massively busted!

Oh, the beauty of ancient history...

This is Gallimimus. He can

run up to 20 miles per hour.

25 miles per hour, dude.

Read a book much!

That of course was the super juvenile


Okay, moving on. Uhuh.

Often kids think they

know more than adults.

They don't know more than adults.

Authorized Personnel Only.

- We can't.

- Oh, but we must.

Keep a look out!

This looks complicated.

We'll need a variable algorithm to

sort combination possibilities.
