Note(s): Apparently five of the episodes have been released with the Japanese version of the toy series, Dinozone, as oavs but the series has not been broadcast in Japan. Later the series was released as a television series in the United States but was not very successful. Six of the episodes were not broadcast during the initial United States release.

Despite the above there is no definite information available to determine whether Dinozaurs and Dinozone are separate releases of the same series or separate series based on the same Bandai toy series.

To see what other animated programs were out at the same time as Dinozaurs: The Series go to the Chronology of Animation.

Note on finding copies of programs:
Unfortunately I lack the time or resources to help people find copies of anime television programs. I have put together a web List of Online Video and Book Stores that will be useful to find copies in the United States, some other countries, and one Japanese store. There are other similar stores on the Internet around the world that might be able to supply the DVDs, LDs, VCDs, or video tapes that are desired. Check my Japanese Animation Information page for links to Internet resources that may have further information. I am not involved in trading materials from my own collection. I am still waiting to see most of the programs in this List of Anime Television Series and would be happy to find sources for many of them.

Because of these circumstances I will not respond to requests for help to find these types of materials.
