The Dinosaucers is an animated television series produced in 1987 by Coca-Cola Telecommunications and distributed by DIC, lasting only one season. Nonetheless, The Dinosaucers is popular among the herpetophiles in the furry fandom.
The series starred two factions of alien-evolved dinosaurs from the planet Reptilon who end up landing on Earth:
- The Dinosaucers, the "good guys" that just want to live in peace and defend their new home. They possess a technology called Dinovolution, which allows them to "de-evolve" into their full-sized, Earth-dinosaur "ancestors". The Dinosaucers meet a group of humans who help them in defending Earth from the Tyrannos.
- The Tyrannos, who want to take over the Earth by force. They seek the Dinovolution technology, which would give them the sheer strength needed to conquer the Dinosaucers.
- Allo - Allosaurus leader of the Dinosuacers.
- Brontothunder - Brontosaurus who generally provides the muscle for the team.
- Dimetro - Dimetrodon chief technician and maintainer of the Dinosaucers' equipment.
- Teryx - Archaeopteryx scout who can fly and is the only female.
- Genghis Rex - Tyrannosaurus Rex leader of the Tyrannos who seeks to conquer Earth.
- Ankylo - Ankylosaurus who frequently messes up Rex's plans.
