The Jurassic Four



I've been meaning to use Gon, the awesome creation by Masashi Tanaka for a while now, and this team grew out of that.  Gon featured wordless adventures of a tiny but tough dinosaur, set against lavishly illustrated backgrounds.  I would love to see how the little guy would interact with some of my other favorite dino characters.

Ha! Rex from Toy Story! Ha! Brilliant!

Didn't Jack Kirby create Devil Dinosaur or something? Wasn't that a boy and a dinosaur?

Yup!

Darn straight! Jack Kirby created Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy at some point, probably when he was in a mellow mood.
When he got excited, then the really wild crazy stuff came out.

What, no Nervous Rex?

Just curious about Gon. I'm very familiar with him over here in Japan. Has he made it to Network tv stateside?
Since the Jurassic 4 is made up of bipeds, perhaps Barney's Hoposaurus could guest star.

So, will this quartet be fighting Godzilla... or Barney?
