´╗┐Mister conductor, a yellow troodon, is dressed as a train conductor. He wears a red cap and a red jacket.

He unrolls a white projection screen showing something like a golf course on high cliffs over a beach.

Mister Conductor says HELLO, FOLKS!
IT'S ME, THE CONDUCTOR!
TODAY, IT'S THE CLASSIC IN THE
JURASSIC, WITH A RUNNING RACE
BETWEEN THE TRIASSIC, JURASSIC,
AND CRETACEOUS TIME PERIODS!
SO, C'MON ALONG WITH ME ON THE
DINOSAUR TRAIN!
ALL ABOAAAARRRD!

A view of tracks surrounded by tall trees and going under high cliffs emerges through a tunnel. The oval logo of Dinosaur Train, surrounded by brown tracks approaches along the track and temporarily cuts off the view. At the top of the logo, a yellow engine pulls a yellow carriage.
[Lyrical Music plays]
"DINOSAUR TRAIN
DINOSAUR TRAIN."

(music plays)

Four eggs appear in the pteranodon nest.

A green pteranodon with a long spiked head and a long beak flies to her nest over bright green plants. The credits of the program appear in the background.

The song continues "ONCE UPON A TIME
THERE WAS A MOM
HER NAME WAS Missus PTERANODON
SITTING ON HER NEST
SHE HEARD A SCRATCH AND SAID
"OH BOY MY EGGS ARE HATCHING."

Four big pale pinky yellow eggs sit inside Missus Pteranodon's nest. Three eggs break open to reveal pteranodons in different shades of green.

The song continues "ONE BY ONE, HER KIDS
POPPED FREE
BABY PTERANODONS ONE,
TWO, THREE."

Mom says I'LL NAME YOU TINY,
SHINY, AND DON
BUT TINY SAID...
WAIT, THERE'S ONE
MORE, MOM!

The last egg breaks, to show an orange T.Rex baby with a big head and an impressive row of teeth.
(It roars)

The song continues "THE LAST LITTLE BABY
WAS A DIFFERENT SIZE
WITH TEETH AND A TAIL
AND BIG GREEN EYES
HE DIDN'T LOOK ANYTHING
LIKE THE REST!"

He says WHAT AM I DOING IN A
PTERANODON NEST?

The song continues "BUT DEAR OLD
Missus PTERANODON SAID --."

She says OH, THIS IS YOUR FAMILY
AND I'M YOUR MOM!
YOU MAY BE DIFFERENT BUT
WE'RE ALL CREATURES
ALL DINOSAURS HAVE
DIFFERENT FEATURES.

She picks him up, and as she flies off says COME ON, BUDDY, WE'LL
TAKE A VACATION
I'LL GET US A TICKET AT
PTERANODON STATION

Missus Pteranodon flies with the four babies to a train station
with lots of dinosaurs. The station is made of wood, with dark green doors and windows, and a gray tile roof. A blue triceratops and an orange diplodocus stand on the platform. An orange, green and red engine arrives, pulling one carriage.

(Lyrical music plays)
"WE'LL TRAVEL THE WORLD
IN SUNSHINE AND RAIN
AND MEET ALL THE
SPECIES ON THE-
DINOSAUR TRAIN!
DINOSAUR TRAIN
DINOSAUR TRAIN!
DINOSAUR TRAIN
WE'RE GONNA RIDE,
RIDE, RIDE
RIDE, RIIIIIDE..."

[Train tooting] The train arrives and all the dinosaurs jump into it.

The song continues as the train travels toward the viewer. "THE DINOSAUR TRAIN."
[Roaring]
A big T.Rex opens its mouth and engulfs the camera. On a black screen a caption reads "Created by Craig Bartlett."

A caption appears over the moving train below that reads "Classic in the Jurassic, Turtle and Theropod Race"... Written by Craig Bartlett."
(Train siren tooting)

(music plays)

Mister Conductor, in a deep South accent, says TICKETS, TICKETS,
PLEASE! HELLO, PTERANODON FAMILY!

The pteranodon Family says HELLO,
Mister CONDUCTOR!

Mister Conductor says ARE YOU AS EXCITED
ABOUT TODAY'S TRIP AS I AM?

Orange Buddy, the T.Rex, says I DON'T KNOW,
Mister CONDUCTOR - WE'RE PRETTY EXCITED!

Mister Conductor says SOUNDS LIKE WE'RE
ALL EXCITED, BUDDY!
IN FACT, I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MYSELF!
BECAUSE WE'RE HEADED TO THE
CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC, THE
SPORTING EVENT OF THE YEAR!

Turquoise coloured Shiny says WE'VE NEVER EVER BEEN
TO THE CLASSIC BEFORE!

Light green Tiny says YEAH, WILL YOU TELL US
ABOUT IT?

Mister Conductor says WELL, I COULD TELL
YOU ABOUT IT, BUT I'D RATHER
SING A SONG ABOUT IT.
IF YOU DON'T MIND, OF COURSE.

Kids says A SONG?
SING IT - PLEEEEEAASE!

(Jazz music plays)
The Conductor does a dance step and sings
"OH, EVERY KIND OF
CREATURE
FROM CRETACEOUS TO
TRIASSIC
WILL MEET AND GREET
AND THEN COMPETE
IN THE "CLASSIC IN
THE JURASSIC!"

(music plays)
Buddy says SO MANY KINDS
OF CONTESTS!

Conductor says MM-HMM!

Tiny dances, sings and says IN FACT, IT'S
JUST FANTASTIC!

Conductor says SING IT, GIRL!

They all dance and sing and say "WE'LL MEET AND GREET
AND THEN COMPETE
IN THE CLASSIC IN
THE JURASSIC!"

Conductor says HA!
OH, IT'S THE CLASSIC
IN THE JURASSIC
DINOSAURS FROM
FAR AND NEAR
YEAH, IT'S THE CLASSIC
IN THE JURASSIC
THE SPORTING EVENT
OF THE YEAR!

(music plays)

The pteranodon kids and Buddy sing and say "RUNNING, JUMPING,
FLYING, SWIMMING, RACING,
CHASING, TRYING, WINNING!
IT'S THE CLASSIC
IN THE JURASSIC
DINOSAURS FROM
FAR AND NEAR
YEAH, IT'S THE CLASSIC
IN THE JURASSIC
THE SPORTING EVENT
OF THE YEAR!"

(music plays)

Mister Conductor does a split, then gets up and says HOO!

(music plays)
[cheering]

The train enters the mouth of a tunnel at full speed.

Conductor says TIME TUNNEL, TIME TUNNEL
APPROACHING!

It emerges at full speed from the other end.

(music plays)

Conductor says NEXT STOP, CLASSIC IN THE
JURASSIC SPORTS STATION, IN THE
JURASSIC TIME PERIOD!

The train brakes at a station with Greek-Roman columns.

(music plays)
Conductor says FOLLOW ME TO THE RACECOURSE,
EVERYBODY!

The Pteranodon family follow him. They go through a natural stone archway.

Kids says OOOH!

(music plays)

Tiny says BUDDY, LOOK, IT'S MAYOR
KOSMOCERATOPS!

A lilac triceratops, with a fancy bony frill behind his head, addresses a crowd of dinosaurs.

(Epic music plays)
Mayor Kosmoceratops says DINOSAURS, PTEROSAURS,
HADROSAURS, CERATOPSIANS, AND
OTHER ASSORTED CREATURES,
WELCOME TO THE GREATEST SPORTING
EVENT OF THE MESOZOIC, THE
CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC!
[cheering]
TODAY'S EVENT IS A GROUND RACE
BETWEEN TEAMS OF SLOW-MOVING
TURTLES AND FAST-MOVING
THEROPODS FROM EACH TIME PERIOD.
FROM THE CRETACEOUS... ADOCUS AND
ORNITHOMIMUS!
[cheering]

Two slim blue dinosaurs appear.

Kids says LOOK, IT'S OREN AND
OLLIE!

Dark green Don says I KNOW THEM!

Oren And Ollie says HI, YOU GUYS!

Oren says I'M ACTUALLY THE ONE
WHO'S COMPETING, BUT I NEVER GO
ANYWHERE WITHOUT OLLIE!

Ollie says SO, I'M KEEPING OREN
COMPANY!

Mayor Kosmoceratops says FROM THE
JURASSIC, GLYPTOPS AND
HAPLOCHEIRUS!...
[cheering]

A green and yellow turtle looks up at a slim orange and red dinosaur.

He continues FROM THE TRIASSIC, PROGANOCHELYS
AND EORAPTOR!

A yellow turtle and a small yellow dinosaur look at him.
[cheering]

Pauline the turtle says HELLO.

Erma the Eoraptor says DON'TCHA KNOW.

Mayor Kosmoceratops says EACH
TEAM OF TURTLE AND THEROPOD WILL
WORK TOGETHER, RACING TIME
PERIOD AGAINST TIME PERIOD.
THE FIRST TEAM TO GET BOTH
CREATURES ACROSS THE FINISH LINE WINS!
[cheering]

Tiny says RAWK!
CAN WE GO DOWN AND GET AS CLOSE
AS WE CAN, MOM AND DAD?

Mister Pteranodon says SURE, TINY -
WE'RE RIGHT BEHIND YOU!

The family moves toward the racetrack.

(music plays)

Don says SO, WHICH TEAM ARE WE
ROOTING FOR?

Tiny says WELL, THE CRETACEOUS, I GUESS.
WE'RE FRIENDS WITH ADAM AND
OREN AND OLLIE!

Buddy says BUT WHAT ABOUT ERMA
AND PAULINE ON TEAM TRIASSIC?
THEY'RE OUR FRIENDS TOO!

Shiny says BUT WE COME FROM THE
CRETACEOUS, BUDDY.
SO... "GO TEAM CRETACEOUS!"
[chuckling]

Tiny says HI, TEAM CRETACEOUS!
HOW ARE YOU FEELING ABOUT YOUR
CHANCES OF WINNING THE RACE TODAY?

Adam the turtle says PRETTY GOOD, ACTUALLY.
I MAY BE SLOW, BUT I FIGURE I
CAN HOLD MY OWN AGAINST THOSE
OTHER TURTLES.

Buddy says ADAM'S RIGHT.
THE OTHER TURTLES ARE ABOUT THE
SAME SIZE.
THEY PROBABLY GO AT THE SAME SPEED.

The two turtles move ponderously and slowly with their curved little legs.

Don says WHICH ISN'T VERY FAST.

Buddy says BUT OREN AND OLLIE ARE
THE SPEEDIEST CREATURES I'VE
EVER SEEN!
WE CAN'T LOSE!

Shiny says YES, GO TEAM
CRETACEOUS! RAWK!

(music plays)

To a turtle, Buddy says HI!
SO, YOU'RE A GLYPTOPS?

Gwendolyn, in a deep-South accent says YEP, SURE AM.

Buddy says I LIKE COMPARING
FEATURES BETWEEN DIFFERENT SPECIES.
SO, CAN YOU RETRACT YOUR HEAD
INTO YOUR SHELL, LIKE ADAM CAN?

Gwendolyn says YOU MEAN, LIKE
THIS? (pops it in)

(music plays)

Buddy says (chuckling)
COOL, THANKS!

Hap, the theropod, says HEY, I SEE YOU'RE A
THEROPOD LIKE ME, BUDDY!

Buddy says YEAH, BUT YOU'VE GOT
THREE-FINGERED CLAWS, AND I'VE
ONLY GOT TWO.
AND YOUR LEGS ARE REALLY LONG!

Hap says YUP, THE BETTER FOR
RUNNING WITH, RIGHT?

Tiny lands beside Buddy and says WOW, HE LOOKS FAST!
SHOULD WE BE WORRIED ABOUT TEAM CRETACEOUS?

Mister Conductor says I DON'T THINK SO,
TINY. BETWEEN THE THREE THEROPODS, I'D
SAY THAT OREN AND OLLIE ARE
STILL THE ODDS-ON FAVOURITE!

Ollie says RACE YOU TO THAT BUSH
AND BACK! (they race)

(Fast music plays)

Tiny says HEY, TEAM CRETACEOUS,
DON'T FORGET TO FOCUS ON THE RACE!
REMEMBER TO RUN FROM START TO
FINISH, AND CROSS THE FINISH LINE!

Adam drawls and says OKAY, TINY, I'LL DO
MY BEST.

Tiny says RAWK!
I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT ADAM... I'M
WORRIED ABOUT OREN AND OLLIE.

Oren says RACE YOU AROUND IN
CIRCLES! (they zoom around)
[laughing]

Tiny says BUDDY, I THINK I'LL FLY
AFTER OUR TEAM AND TRY TO KEEP
AN EYE ON 'EM.

Shiny says RAWK! ME TOO.

Buddy says AND I'LL STAY WITH THE
TURTLES AND CHEER 'EM ON!
[cheering]

The two teams stand ready at the yellow starting line.

Mayor Kosmoceratops says AND NOW,
RUNNERS, TAKE YOUR MARKS!
ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, GO!
[horn blaring]
[wild cheering]

The dinosaurs gallop off, and the turtles start moving ponderously.

Tiny and Shiny fly off and say RAAWK!
WE'LL WATCH THE THEROPODS!

Buddy says OKAY, WE'LL STAY WITH
THE TURTLES!

(music plays)

Adam says BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR A
RACE, ISN'T IT?

Pauline and Gwendolyn say IT
CERTAINLY IS.

(Fast music plays)
[huffing and puffing]

Oren and Ollie says MMM, BUSHES!

They stop to eat some leaves.

Tiny flaps to attract their attention and says RAWK!
YOU GUYS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

Oren says HAVING A QUICK SNACK.

Ollie says FAST RUNNERS HAVE TO
EAT A LOT.

Oren says AND OFTEN!

Tiny says OH, RIGHT, I FORGOT.
BUT DON'T FORGET THE RACE!
YOU DON'T WANT TO FALL BEHIND.
LOOK, THERE GO THE OTHER
THEROPODS!

Oren And Ollie says WE'RE ON IT!
RUNNING - BYE, TINY!

To Tiny, Shiny says YOU KEEP AN EYE ON
OREN AND OLLIE.
I'LL FLY AHEAD AND FOLLOW ERMA. RAWK!
HI, ERMA, HOW ARE YOU DOING?

Erma, in a deep-South accent, says WELL, HOWDY,
Miss SHINY. RECKON I'M DOING PRETTY GOOD.

Shiny says YOU SURE ARE!

Erma says WHO WOULDA THUNK IT
A TRIASSIC THEROPOD IN THE LEAD.
I MIGHT ACTUALLY WIN THIS LI'L
OLE CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC
THING, DON'TCHA KNOW.

Shiny says BUT BOTH THE THEROPOD
AND THE TURTLE FROM EACH TEAM
HAVE TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE TO
WIN, RIGHT?

Erma says MM-HMM, WONDER HOW
PAULINE IS DOIN' RIGHT NOW.

(music plays)

Pauline says WELL, IMAGINE, HERE
WE ARE, RACING IN THE CLASSIC
IN THE JURASSIC.

Adam says YUP, AND WE'RE STILL
NECK AND NECK.

Gwendolyn says HELLO, LOOK UP
AHEAD - SOME BIG ROCKS.
[giggling]
I THINK I'LL WALK AROUND THEM.

Adam says AW, I'LL JUST CLIMB
OVER THEM.

Gwendolyn says SUIT YOURSELF.

(music plays)

Adam climbs, topples on his back, and says UH, I SEEM TO HAVE
FLIPPED OVER. A LITTLE HELP?

Buddy says I WONDER IF IT'S OKAY TO HELP.
MAYBE IT'S AGAINST THE RULES.

Pauline says DON'T WORRY, BUDDY.
WE'VE GOT IT!
[grunting]

Pauline and Gwendolyn use their snouts to roll him back on his feet again.

Adam says THERE - THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Pauline and Gwendolyn say YOU'RE
ENTIRELY WELCOME!

Don says YAY!

Buddy says WOO-HOO, YEAH!

The Mayor stands by the finish line.
(Epic music plays)
[cheering]

Catching up with their competitors, Oren And Ollie say HI, YOU TWO!
EXCITING RACE!

Erma says YEP, IN FACT, I CAN'T
REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I WAS
THIS EXCITED, DON'TCHA KNOW.
[chuckling]
[cheering]

Showing off, Oren And Ollie whiz around, crossing tracks with each other before the finish line and say OUCH, OOF!
[gasping]

Mister Conductor says WELL, THAT WAS
EXCITING!
I'D CALL IT A THREE-WAY TIE,
Mister MAYOR.

Mayor Kosmoceratops says BLESS MY
15 DECORATIVE HORNS - IT'S A
THREE-WAY TIE!

Shiny says BUT IF IT'S A TIE,
WHICH TIME PERIOD WINS THE CLASSIC?

Mister Conductor says WELL, SHINY, THE
TROPHY WOULD GO TO WHICHEVER
TURTLE CROSSES THE FINISH LINE FIRST.

Mayor Kosmoceratops says THE
CONDUCTOR'S RIGHT!
IT'S NOW ALL ON THOSE
SLOW-AND-STEADY TURTLES!

Tiny says RAWK!
THEN LET'S GO SEE HOW THE
TURTLES ARE DOING.

Ollie says GREAT IDEA.

Oren says WE'LL COME TOO!

Oren And Ollie say C'MON!

(music plays)
Buddy and Don say HOORAY,
YOU'RE ALMOST THERE!

(music plays)

Hap says C'MON, THAT'S IT!
WALK - WALK FAST!

Oren And Ollie says YOU'RE IN THE
HOME STRETCH!
[cheering]

Pauline says WELL, BLESS MY
SPIKY TAIL.
WE'RE NEARLY AT THE FINISH LINE.

Adam says YUP, IT'S A CLOSE ONE.
IT'S NECK AND NECK, AS THEY SAY.

Gwendolyn says SPEAKING OF WHICH,
I CAN'T HELP BUT ADMIRE YOUR
NECK, PAULINE.
IT'S ALL ARMOUR PLATED AND
COVERED WITH THOSE AMAZING SPIKES.

Pauline says YES, IT IS,
THANK YOU.
IT'S ARMOUR-PLATED BECAUSE
TRIASSIC TURTLES CAN'T RETRACT
OUR HEADS INTO OUR SHELLS, LIKE
YOU CAN.

Adam and Gwendolyn say OH, YOU MEAN
LIKE THIS?

They retract their heads just as they come up to the finish line, so Pauline wins.

(music plays)

Mister Conductor says THE WINNER - BY A
NON-RETRACTABLE NECK - IS
PAULINE PROGANOCHELYS!

Pauline says REALLY?
DIDN'T WE ALL GO ACROSS THE
FINISH LINE TOGETHER?

Adam says NOPE, THAT WAS RIGHT
WHEN WE RETRACTED OUR HEADS
INTO OUR SHELLS.
TALK ABOUT BAD TIMING.

Mayor Kosmoceratops says THEN THE
WINNER OF THE CLASSIC IN THE
JURASSIC TURTLE AND THEROPOD
RACE IS THE TRIASSIC TIME PERIOD!
[cheering]

Pauline says GOSH, THANK YOU.

Erma says DON'TCHA KNOW.

Tiny says NICE TRY ANYWAY, TEAM
CRETACEOUS!

Don says AND TEAM JURASSIC!

Shiny says RAWK!
YEAH, WHAT A FUN DAY.

Buddy says AND WHAT A GREAT RACE!
[whistle blowing]

Mister Pteranodon says WHOOP,
THERE'S THE WHISTLE, KIDS!
TIME TO GET BACK TO THE TRAIN.

To the other turtles, Adam says RACE YA!
[laughing]
JUST KIDDING.
[laughing]

(music plays)

Back in the train, which now has two wagons and a spiky tail, the kids sing and say
"RUNNING, JUMPING,
FLYING, SWIMMING, YEAH, RACING,
CHASING, TRYING, WINNING!
IT'S THE CLASSIC IN
THE JURASSIC
DINOSAURS FROM
FAR AND NEAR
YEAH, IT'S THE CLASSIC
IN THE JURASSIC
THE SPORTING EVENT
OF THE YEAR!"

(music plays)
[cheering]

Mister Conductor says HOO!

the screen fades to black.

In a museum, a man crouches by a nest with long white eggs below a dinosaur skeleton. A swimming turtle appears. A drawing shows a modern turtle and an ancient one. A clip shows a leatherback turtle sunning on a beach. A cartoon shows Adocus retracting its neck, and then Glyptops. A clip shows a modern turtle doing the same.
(Rhythmic music plays)

Dark-haired Doctor Scott, in his thirties, says HI THERE, I'M
Doctor SCOTT, THE PALEONTOLOGIST.
TURTLES ARE AMAZING CREATURES!
THEY WERE AROUND WITH THE VERY
FIRST DINOSAURS, AND THEY'VE
REMAINED ALMOST UNCHANGED FOR
MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF YEARS,
AND THEY'RE STILL AROUND TODAY!
HOW HAVE TURTLES BEEN ABLE TO
SURVIVE FOR SO LONG?
ONE REASON IS THE PROTECTIVE
SHELL THAT COVERS THE BODY.
MOST TURTLES, LIKE THE ANCIENT
ADOCUS AND THIS MODERN TURTLE,
HAVE HARD SHELLS.
OTHERS, LIKE THE HUGE CRETACEOUS
TURTLE ARCHELON AND THE
LEATHERBACK TURTLE THAT'S ALIVE
TODAY, HAVE SOFTER SHELLS.
MANY TURTLES ALSO HAVE
RETRACTABLE NECKS.
THIS MEANS THE TURTLE CAN PULL
ITS NECK INTO ITS SHELL TO
PROTECT THE HEAD FROM PREDATORS.
THERE GOES THE NECK OF ADOCUS!
AND THERE GOES GLYPTOPS'S NECK!
NOW, WATCH THIS LITTLE TURTLE
RETRACT ITS NECK INTO ITS SHELL.
BUT NOT ALL TURTLES CAN RETRACT
THEIR NECKS.
THE TRIASSIC TURTLE
PROGANOCHELYS COULDN'T.

A clip of Dino Train shows Proganochelys surrounded by the Pteranodon kids. then a clip shows a modern sea turtle.

Doctor Scott continues SO, AS PROTECTION, ITS HEAD AND
NECK WERE COVERED WITH ARMOURED
PLATES AND POINTY SPIKES.
PRETTY COOL, HUH?
AND HERE'S A MODERN-DAY TURTLE
THAT CAN'T PULL ITS NECK IN... THE
SEA TURTLE.
SOME SEA TURTLES, LIKE THE
LEATHERBACK, PROTECT THEMSELVES
BY GROWING VERY LARGE.
OKAY, GET OUTSIDE, GET INTO
NATURE, AND MAKE YOUR OWN
DISCOVERIES.

(Theme music plays)

Mister Conductor says HELLO, FOLKS!
IT'S ME, THE CONDUCTOR!
TODAY, WE'LL MEET A GIANT
THEROPOD WHO'S A COUSIN TO LAURA
GIGANOTOSAURUS!
HE MAKES A MEAN CARRION
CASSEROLE TOO.
SO, C'MON ALONG WITH ME ON THE
DINOSAUR TRAIN!
ALL ABOAAAAARRRD!

He unrolls a white projection screen showing a green and yellow dinosaur wearing a chef's hat. Over a Jurassic landscape, a title caption reads "Hungry, Hungry Carnivores... Written by Elise Allen."

(Jolly music plays)

In the nest, Tiny says RAWK!
THAT WAS THE HUGEST, TASTIEST,
MOST FISH-TASTIC-IEST LUNCH EVER!
THANKS, MOM!

Missus Pteranodon says YOU'RE
WELCOME. IT SURE WAS GOOD.
[rumbling]
[laughing]

Tiny says BUDDY, IS THAT YOUR
BELLY AGREEING?
IS IT MAKING YUMMY-TUMMY FULL NOISES?

Buddy says UM, THOSE ARE
HUNGRY-TUMMY EMPTY NOISES, TINY.

Tiny says BUT, BUDDY, HOW CAN YOU
BE HUNGRY?
WE JUST ATE SO MUCH FISH!

Missus Pteranodon says OH, SHOULD I
GO CATCH SOME MORE?

Buddy says UH, NO, THANKS, MOM.
I HAD PLENTY.
IT'S JUST...

Missus Pteranodon says IT'S JUST
THAT YOU'RE A T.REX, AND
FISH DOESN'T SATISFY YOU
LIKE MEAT DOES.

Buddy says YOU'RE RIGHT, MOM!
IF I COULD EAT A PILE OF CARRION
AS BIG AS THIS FISH LUNCH, I'D
BE SO HAPPY I'D - RAAWR!

Missus Pteranodon says WELL, I WANT
MY KIDS TO BE HAPPY, AND I
HAPPEN TO KNOW A PLACE THAT
SERVES THE BEST CARRION AROUND.

Buddy and Tiny say THE DINOSAUR TRAIN!

Missus Pteranodon says EXACTLY!
AND SINCE DAD TOOK SHINY AND DON
ON A FLYING PLAY DATE, I SAY
LET'S GO ON OUR OWN ADVENTURE!

Buddy and Tiny say YAY, TO THE
DINOSAUR TRAIN!

(theme music plays)

With smoke billowing from its chimney, the train passes, hauling three carriages, one of them an open one carrying a huge dinosaur, and a caboose.

Mister Conductor says WELL, OF COURSE
BUDDY'S CRAVING MEAT - HE'S A CARNIVORE!
AND, IF THERE'S ONE THING
CARNIVORES NEED, IT'S MEAT!
[rumbling]

Tiny says AND SOON!

Mister Conductor says WELL, YOU'RE IN
LUCK, BUDDY - JUST TODAY WE GOT
A WHOLE NEW SHIPMENT OF MEAT!

A big, toothy face looks in through the window and Laura says DID SOMEONE SAY WHOLE
NEW SHIPMENT OF MEAT?

Buddy and Tiny say LAURA!

Missus Pteranodon says WHY, HELLO, LAURA!
ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR MEAT TOO?

Laura says OH, YES, I'M A CARNIVORE!
I'M ALWAYS HUNGRY FOR MEAT.

Mister Conductor says THEN LET'S MAKE
FLEET FEET TO GREET THE MEAT!
TO THE DINING CAR!

(music plays)

With a plateful of meatballs in front of him, Buddy says MMM, MMM!

Tiny says BUDDY, I KNEW YOU WERE
HUNGRY, BUT THIS IS REALLY HUNGRY!

Buddy says I GUESS I JUST REALLY
WANTED MEAT, AND THIS MEAT IS SO GOOD!

Mister Conductor brings in a trolley and says YOU HAVEN'T SEEN
ANYTHING YET!
CARRION KEBABS, THE SPECIAL OF
THE DAY, ALONG WITH
CARRION-ON-CRACKERS, CARRION
CRUNCHERS, AND CARRION CHOWDER!

Missus Pteranodon says AMAZING!
I NEVER KNEW THERE WERE SO MANY
DISHES TO MAKE WITH CARRION!

Laura says OH, ONCE I HAD A
CAVALCADE OF CARRION CASSEROLE
THAT CONTAINED SIX DIFFERENT
KINDS OF MEAT.

Buddy says SIX DIFFERENT KINDS OF MEAT?
THAT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT.

Laura says YES, IT IS, ESPECIALLY
FOR A JUVENILE LIKE YOU, BUDDY.
BUT I'M FULL-GROWN.
OH, THAT CASSEROLE WAS SERVED
WITH CRISPY CARRION CAKES IN
MEAT GRAVY SAUCE - THE BEST MEAL
I EVER ATE.

Tiny says WOW, THAT EVEN SOUNDS
GOOD TO ME, AND I'M A PISCIVORE
I EAT FISH!

Missus Pteranodon says WHERE DID
YOU EAT THAT MEAL, LAURA?

Laura says THE SAME PLACE I HAD
ALL MY FAVOURITE MEALS... IN
ANOTHER PART OF THE CRETACEOUS,
WITH MY DISTANT COUSIN, CARSON
CARCHARODONTOSAURUS.

Mister Conductor says OH, YOU MEAN
Chef C.?

Tiny says Mister CONDUCTOR, DO YOU
KNOW LAURA'S COUSIN?

Mister Conductor says DO I?
HE'S ONLY THE MOST FAMOUS CHEF
IN THE MESOZOIC!
CARNIVORES FROM ALL AROUND TAKE
THE DINOSAUR TRAIN TO GET A
TASTE OF Chef C.'S CARRION
CREATIONS.

Missus Pteranodon says HOW HAVE I
NOT HEARD OF HIM?

Mister Conductor says WELL, Missus P,
YOU'RE NOT A MEAT EATER!
BUT Chef C. IS SOMEONE YOU SHOULD
KNOW, BUDDY.
OH, YOU'D LIKE HIM TOO, TINY.
I'LL TELL YOU ALL ABOUT HIM.

(music plays)

He unrolls the projection screen again.

Laura says COUSIN CARSON!

Missus Pteranodon says HE LOOKS A
LITTLE LIKE YOU, LAURA.

Tiny says HE KIND OF LOOKS
LIKE A T.REX, TOO.

Mister Conductor says CORRECT, TINY.
CARCHARODONTOSAURUS IS MORE
CLOSELY RELATED TO
GIGANOTOSAURUS, BUT IT'S ABOUT
THE SAME SIZE AS AN ADULT T.REX.

Buddy says LOOKS LIKE HE HAS
SHARP TEETH LIKE A T.REX, TOO.

Mister Conductor says GOOD EYE.
CARCHARODONTOSAURUS MEANS
SHARP-TOOTHED LIZARD.
AND LOOK says LONG, BLADE-LIKE TEETH.

Buddy says TO HELP HIM CHEW
THROUGH MEAT?

Laura says LOTS OF MEAT.

Tiny says WAIT A MINUTE, I THINK
THESE TEETH ARE A LOT NARROWER
THAN T.REX TEETH.
OPEN WIDE, BUDDY.

Buddy says AAAHH.

Tiny says RAWK.
YUP, T.REXES HAVE WIDER TEETH,
WITH NOTCHES.

Mister Conductor says YOU'RE RIGHT, TINY.
BUT WIDE OR NARROW, CARSON AND
LAURA'S TEETH ARE PERFECT FOR
TEARING INTO MEAT.

Laura says AND CARSON KNOWS
EVERYTHING ABOUT ALL KINDS OF MEAT.
THAT'S WHAT MAKES HIM A GREAT CHEF.

Mister Conductor says AND, DON'T FORGET,
HE'S A HYPERCARNIVORE.

Buddy and Tiny say A HYPERCARNIVORE?

Mister Conductor says INDEED!
HYPER MEANS A LOT OF, AND CARSON
LIKES A LOT OF MEAT.
THAT MAKES HIM A HYPERCARNIVORE.
HE EATS MORE MEAT THAN MOST CARNIVORES.

Tiny says ARE BUDDY AND LAURA
HYPERCARNIVORES TOO?

Mister Conductor says AMONG THE
HYPER-EST.

Buddy says HYPERCARNIVORE.
SOUNDS LIKE A MEAT-EATING SUPERHERO.

Tiny says HUNGRIER THAN THE
HUNGRIEST TRICERATOPS!
ABLE TO EAT LARGE PILES OF
CARRION IN A SINGLE GULP!
[Buddy belching]
IT'S A DINOSAUR, IT'S A
THEROPOD, IT'S HYPERCARNIVORE!
[laughing]

Buddy says Mister CONDUCTOR, DO YOU
THINK WE COULD MEET Chef C. AND
MAYBE TRY SOME OF HIS AMAZING
CARRION DISHES?

Laura says THAT'S A WONDERFUL
IDEA, BUDDY.
COUSIN CARSON WOULD LOVE TO MEET
YOU AND EAT YOU - I MEAN, FEED YOU.

Mister Conductor says I'D BE HAPPY TO
TAKE YOU THERE.
IF WE LEAVE NOW, WE'LL BEAT THE
DINNER RUSH.

Tiny says CAN WE GO, MOM, PLEASE?

Missus Pteranodon says I DON'T KNOW
IF I'M UP FOR EATING MEAT, BUT I
KNOW BUDDY AND LAURA ARE.
AND Chef C. SOUNDS AMAZING.
RAAWK! LET'S DO IT!

Buddy and Tiny says YAY!

Mister Conductor says NEXT STOP,
CARCHARODONTOSAURUS CARRION
STATION IN THE CRETACEOUS TIME PERIOD.
HAVE FUN WITH Chef C..
OH, AND IF YOU COULD BRING BACK
A FEW OF THOSE CRISPY CARRION
CAKES, I'D SURELY APPRECIATE IT.

Buddy and Tiny says WE WILL.

Missus Pteranodon says LAURA, WHERE
DO WE FIND Chef C.?

Laura says THERE IS ONLY ONE SURE
WAY says FOLLOW THE SMELL OF FRESH
CARRION. COUSIN CARSON IS ALWAYS
PREPARING SOME.

Tiny says WELL, NO ONE'S GOT A
BETTER NOSE FOR CARRION THAN
YOU, BUDDY.
THINK YOU CAN FIND HIM?
[sniffing]

Buddy says MMM, I SMELL CARRION,
AND IT SMELLS DELICIOUS!
THIS WAY, COME ON!

(music plays)

Standing behind a semicircular stone table full of meat dishes, Chef C. says SO, WHADDA WE GOT ON THIS STONE?
WE GOT A MIX OF THREE TOP
QUALITY CARRIONS HERE, BUT IT IS
NOTHING UNTIL IT'S GOT THE...

The Carnivores say KA-ZAM!

Sprinkling a magic powder over the dishes, Chef C. says THAT'S RIGHT, KA-ZAM!
AND THESE DISHES HERE TOO,
KA-ZAM, KA-ZAM, KA-ZA- (surprised) COUSIN LAURA!
WOW, EVERYONE, IT'S MY FAVOURITE
COUSIN, LAURA GIGANOTOSAURUS.
SURE HOPE YOU BROUGHT YOUR
APPETITE.

Laura says I DID, AND I BROUGHT
MY FRIENDS... Missus PTERANODON AND
HER KIDS, TINY PTERANODON AND
BUDDY, THE T.REX.

Chef C. says A T.REX.
ALL RIGHT, WE HAVE ANOTHER
CARNIVORE IN THE CANYON.

Buddy says YUP.
I'M A HYPERCARNIVORE, JUST LIKE
YOU AND LAURA.

Chef C. says WELL, THAT'S RIGHT,
BUDDY. WE'RE ALL HYPERCARNIVORES HERE.

A Carnivore Customer says YEAH, AND
WE'RE HYPER-HUNGRY.

Chef C. says AH, KEEP YOUR HORNS
ON THERE, HUMPHREY.
BELIEVE ME, THE FOOD'S COMING.

Tiny says EXCUSE ME, Mister CARSON, SIR.

Chef C. says HAH, C'MON, CALL ME Chef C..

Tiny says RAWK.
Chef C., WE LEARNED THAT
CARCHARODONTOSAURUS HAVE NARROW
BUT SHARP TEETH; IS THAT TRUE?

Chef C. says WELL, YOU TELL ME -
WHADDAYA THINK?
WHICH OF US HYPERCARNIVORES HAVE
THE SHARPEST TEETH... ME, LAURA,
OR BUDDY HERE?

The Carnivores say AAAHH.

(music plays)

Looking at the teeth, Tiny says WOW, YOU ALL HAVE
REALLY SHARP TEETH, BUT Chef C.'S
MIGHT BE THE NARROWEST AND
SHARPEST OF ALL.

Chef C. says WELL, THEY CERTAINLY
HELP ME DO WHAT I DO BEST... EAT
MEAT. AND IT'S JUST ABOUT READY.
WAIT 'TIL YOU SEE THE MEAL I'M
PUTTIN' TOGETHER.
I GOT HOT-ROCK CARRION,
DOUBLE-DOUBLE CARRION BURGERS,
LEAF-WRAPPED CARRION, CARRION ON
THE HALF-GOURD, AND, OF COURSE,
MY FAMOUS CAVALCADE OF CARRION
CASSEROLE.

He lifts the lid off the dish.

Buddy says THE ONE MADE WITH SIX
DIFFERENT KINDS OF MEAT?

Tiny says AND SERVED WITH CRISPY
CARRION CAKES IN MEAT GRAVY SAUCE?

Laura says I MIGHT HAVE MENTIONED
IT WAS THE BEST MEAL I EVER ATE.

Chef C. says WELL, LET'S SEE IF
IT'S STILL AS GOOD AS YOU REMEMBER IT.
ONE WAY TO GET EVERYTHING DONE A
BIT FASTER IS WITH A LITTLE HELP.

Buddy says CAN WE HELP YOU,
Chef C.?

Chef C. says YOU CAN ALL HELP ME.
LAURA, PLEASE GRAB ME DOWN SOME
GIANT LEAVES.
TINY, THAT CASSEROLE COULD USE
SOME STIRRING.
AND BUDDY, I'LL PUT YOU ON
SKEWER DUTY.
IS EVERYBODY READY?
IF YOU ARE, GIVE ME A KA-ZAM ON
THREE. ONE, TWO, THREE.

Everyone says KA-ZAM!

(Jolly music plays)

Chef C. says AND NOW FOR THE FINAL TOUCH.
BUDDY, TINY, REACH INTO MY BOWL
OF SUPER-SECRET SPICE MIX FOR
ONE LAST...

Everyone says KA-ZAM!

Chef C. says SO, TELL ME, EVERYONE

WHO IS HUNGRY FOR SOME CARRION?
[cheering]

(music plays)

They all eat with a healthy appetite.

Buddy says WE DID IT!
WE HELPED Chef C. FEED EVERYBODY.
[Tiny rumbling]
[laughing]

Tiny says ALMOST EVERYBODY.

Chef C. says WHAT, YOU THINK I'M
GONNA LET MY BEST ASSISTANTS GO HUNGRY?
I PUT A LITTLE SOMETHIN'
TOGETHER FOR YOU WHILE YOU WAS WORKING.
AND, DON'T WORRY, THIS ONE'S
JUST FOR YOU... FISH A LA KA-ZAM.

Tiny and Mom says YUM.
THANKS, Chef C.!
[munching]

Buddy says MM-MM, THIS TASTES SO GOOD.

Missus Pteranodon says PACE
YOURSELF, BUDDY, I'D HATE FOR
YOU TO GET A CARRION TUMMY ACHE.
JUST TAKE YOUR TIME.
EAT SLOWLY, LIKE THIS.
THIS IS... MMM.
THIS IS INCREDIBLE.
I'VE NEVER HAD FISH LIKE THIS.
[laughing]

Buddy and Tiny says PACE
YOURSELF, MOM.

Missus Pteranodon says DON'T WORRY,
KIDS, I ALWAYS DO.
I WOULDN'T WANT TO GET A FISH
TUMMY ACHE.
Chef C., PLEASE, YOU HAVE TO TELL
ME THE RECIPE.

Chef C. says WELL, A TRUE CHEF
NEVER REVEALS HIS SECRETS.

Missus Pteranodon says OF COURSE,
I UNDERSTAND.

Chef C. says EXCEPT TO HIS CLOSEST FRIENDS.
[chuckling]
PINKY-CLAW PROMISE YOU WON'T
TELL ANYONE ELSE?

Missus Pteranodon says PINKY-CLAW PROMISE.

They hook their pinky claws.

Chef C. says NOW, LAURA, YOU SAID
MY CASSEROLE WAS THE BEST MEAL
THAT YOU EVER HAD.
I MADE A FEW LITTLE ADJUSTMENTS,
AND I GOTTA KNOW, IS IT STILL
THE BEST?

(music plays)

Buddy, tasting it, says WOW, IT'S INCREDIBLE.

Laura says MMMM, EVEN BETTER THAN BEFORE.
OH, COUSIN CARSON, YOU HAVE
OUTDONE YOURSELF.
[chuckling]

Chef C. says THANKS, ENJOY.
BUT GO SLOW, NO TUMMYACHES, EH?

Buddy says Chef C., THAT WAS THE
BEST MEAL I'VE EVER HAD - EVER.
[Train whistle blowing]

Laura says SADLY, COUSIN, WE MUST
RETURN TO THE TRAIN.
OH, BUT THANK YOU FOR A MOST
WONDERFUL, UNFORGETTABLE MEAL.

Chef C. says AND YOU'LL COME BACK
SOON, RIGHT?
THAT GOES FOR YOU TOO, BUDDY,
TINY, AND Missus P.
YOU'RE REGULARS NOW.

Buddy and Tiny say HOORAY!

Buddy says WE'LL COME BACK ANYTIME.

Missus Pteranodon says NEXT TIME
WITH OUR WHOLE FAMILY.

Chef C. says PINKY-CLAW PROMISE?

(music plays)

Missus Pteranodon says RAWK!
OKAY, KIDS, LET'S GO.
LET'S GO... SLOWLY.

Chef C. says NOW, SPEAKING OF
CARRION, I PUT TOGETHER A LITTLE
SOMETHING FOR YOU TO "CARRY ON HOME."
[chuckling]
A DINO BAG OF CARRION TREATS.
ONE FOR YOU AND ONE FOR A
CERTAIN CONDUCTOR WE ALL KNOW.

Buddy and Tiny says HE'LL LOVE IT.
BYE, Chef C..

(music plays)

Mister Conductor says BLISS, PURE BLISS.
OH, THANK YOU, BUDDY.
SHALL WE DIG IN?

Missus Pteranodon says YOU CAN,
Mister CONDUCTOR, BUT I'M AFRAID
BUDDY'S HAD PLENTY OF CARRION FOR NOW.

Buddy says YEAH, MOM'S RIGHT.
BUT NOW THAT I KNOW ABOUT CHEF
C., I CAN GET THE BEST MEAT IN
THE MESOZOIC ANY TIME.

Tiny says SO YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO
BE A HYPER-HUNGRY HYPERCARNIVORE
EVER AGAIN.
[laughing]

The screen fades to black.

Doctor Scott says HI THERE, I'M
Doctor SCOTT, THE PALEONTOLOGIST.
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD AN AFRICAN
LION CALLED THE "KING OF THE JUNGLE?"
PEOPLE CALL LIONS KINGS BECAUSE
THEY'RE TOP CARNIVORES OF THEIR HABITAT.
BUT WAY BACK IN THE CRETACEOUS
TIME PERIOD, THERE WAS A
DIFFERENT TOP CARNIVORE IN
AFRICA... CARCHARODONTOSAURUS.

A slate shows a dinosaur that looks like Chef C.

Doctor Scott continues IT WAS A GIANT THEROPOD DINOSAUR
ABOUT THE SAME SIZE AS T.REX
AND GIGANOTOSAURUS.
ALL THESE BIG GUYS LOVED TO EAT MEAT.
HOW MUCH?
WELL, THE BIGGER THE CARNIVORE,
THE MORE MEAT IT HAD TO EAT.
SO, GIANTS LIKE
CARCHARODONTOSAURUS ATE A LOT -
A WHOLE LOT.
THEY PROBABLY HUNTED LIVE
ANIMALS AND FED ON CARRION, THE
REMAINS OF ANIMALS THAT WERE
ALREADY DEAD.
TODAY, ALMOST EVERY HABITAT HAS
A TOP CARNIVORE, WHETHER IT'S
LIONS IN AFRICA, POLAR BEARS IN
THE ARCTIC, OR ORCA WHALES IN
THE SEAS.
OKAY, REMEMBER, GET OUTSIDE, GET
INTO NATURE, AND MAKE YOUR OWN
DISCOVERIES.

The train travels along the track and through a tunnel. End credits roll.
(Lyrical music plays)
"DINOSAUR TRAIN

DINOSAUR TRAIN!
DINOSAUR TRAIN
DINOSAUR TRAIN!
DINOSAUR TRAIN
WE'RE GONNA RIDE
THE DINOSAUR TRAIN
DINOSAUR TRAIN
DINOSAUR TRAIN!

An end slate appears that reads "M.D.A. Media Development
Authority. Singapore. Sparkly animation." Then the slate
changes to "Jim Henson. The Jim Henson Company."
