Dinosaur Train is co-produced by Sparky Animation (Singapore) and Jim Henson Company (USA). The first episode premiered on PBS in September 2009. Since then, this series has scored the highest viewership in PBS Kids’ entire history and was also named “Top Kids’ Show” by Hollywood’s renowned, People Magazine. The series was subsequently nominated for 6 Emmy Awards under the categories of “Outstanding Children’s Animated Program” and “Outstanding Writing in a Preschool Animated Program”.
The story is set in a whimsical but realistic prehistoric world of jungles, swamps, active volcanoes, and oceans teeming with fauna. A shiny steam engine, the Dinosaur Train, runs through these lands and is used by all species of dinosaurs. Circling the globe, crossing oceans and inland seas, it time-travels the Mesozoic Era, the “Age of Dinosaurs”, by using magical Time Tunnels to visit the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods.
Season 5 is now airing on PBS USA!
