10 (Sometimes Weird) Pop Culture Dinos in Honor of 'Jurassic World'

Remember Reptar and the Dinobots? Still trying to forget Barney?

With mere days to go before we all cram into crowded theaters for Jurassic World, what better time to remember some other famous dinosaurs that warmed our hearts? (Or chilled us to the bone!)

From movies, television, and beyond, most of the dinosaurs on this list are a heck of lot weirder than anything you'll see in Jurassic World. (On the bright side, these scaly stars are much less likely to eat your head!)

Also, can we consider the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers -- or rather, Dinosaur Squadron Beast Ranger?

I loved the Land Before Time as a kid. It was the first movie I ever saw in the theater. Bet I have the Pizza Hut hand puppets somewhere, too. By the way, the sequels are *not* worth watching. Ugh.

Props to the author for including Denver the Last Dinosaur AND Dino-Riders. I always wanted the Dino-Rider toys.
Yes, this should have 11 dinos on it! Littlefoot! Loved this movie as a kid, the second one was alright too, but they did get a little out of control when they kept making them. What like 5 or 6 total??

The Dinosaurs show blew my mind when I was a kid.

"The Dinosaucers are leaving, Bossosaur" may be the funniest thing I've heard this year.

Oft-forgotten are The Dinosaucers. One Season, 65 epsiodes. Terrible them song:
Unfortunately Barney is still alive and well in this household!

Without fail, Land Before Time still makes me think of Pizza Hut. That was especially effective branding I guess!
Land Before Time?!?! Anyone?
