In this ’93 Spielberg production John Goodman plays a giant orange T-Rex, present in the modern times to bring fun and cheer to children who have never seen a dinosaur in the flesh. Thanks to time-travel antics of Captain New Eyes, as well as his ‘Brain Grain’- a cereal that gives dinosaurs a high intelligence, now the dinosaurs themselves can teach the children about their lives in the Museum of Natural History…

At a point in time, Rex, before he was even called Rex, was oblivious to all this; with a happy and fulfilled existence of terrorizing and eating up smaller dinosaurs. Until one day an aircraft from the future arrived and a small green creature called Vorb (Jay Leno) lured him inside and fed him Brain Grain before introducing him to the other dinosaurs and then Captain Neweyes (Walter Cronkite).

The other dinosaurs who’ve had the Brain Grain: Dweeb the green Parasaurolophus (Charles Fleischer), Woog the blue Triceratops (Rene LeVant) and Elsa the lavender Pteranodon (Felicity Kendal), find themselves in New York with young Louie (Joey Shea) and Cecilia (Yeardley Smith) posing as floats in the Macy parade. All on their way to the Museum of Natural History…
