Episode Listings & Descriptions

Dinosaur Train: Classic in the Jurassic – premieres Monday, August 18

CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC: TURTLE & THEROPOD RACE - The Pteranodon family travels to the “Classic in the Jurassic,” an Olympics type competition in which dinosaur teams representing the three Mesozoic time periods will compete in various contests. Today's competition is a race between turtle and theropod teams. When the fast theropods get tangled up at the finish line, the race comes down to the slow moving turtles. It's an exciting race as the turtles are neck and neck! Who will win the race?

classicjurassicCLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC: AIR OBSTACLE RACE - At the “Classic in the Jurassic,” it's a race between pterosaurs who have to fly between hanging vines, swoop through a canyon, push through a wind tunnel, slalom over and under branches, then carry food from a pond as they race to the finish line! Teddy Pterodaustro finishes first and shows everyone how he filters plankton through his teeth to prove that he did indeed get food from the pond! Teddy is declared the winner!

CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC: AIR, WATER & LAND - At the “Classic in the Jurassic,” today's "Air, Water and Land" contest is a three-part competition pitting teams consisting of a pterosaur and a crocodile from each time period against one another. The competition's three "legs" are flying, swimming and a lap around a track. Team Cretaceous pulls ahead until the wild card of the race is revealed: Team Triassic's croc Effie Effegia who shocks the crowd when she sprints on two legs and wins the race!

CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC: ULTIMATE FACE-OFF - The “Classic in the Jurassic” games are back, and this time, it's the Ultimate Smackdown. Mr. Conductor explains the "wrestling" matchups from the three Time Periods feature carnivores vs. herbivores and the best choreographed and most entertaining show wins!  Tank and Buddy are thrilled - what a face-off! Once the judges tally the results, Team Cretaceous is declared the winner, and the fans love it!

HUNGRY, HUNGRY CARNIVORES - Buddy, Tiny and Mrs. Pteranodon are eating lunch and even though they've just eaten a big fish meal, Buddy is still hungry, so Mrs. Pteranodon takes the kids on the Dinosaur Train so Buddy can eat some carrion. While dining, Laura Giganotosaurus tells Buddy the best meal she ever ate was prepared by her cousin, Chef Carson Carcharodontosaurus. They all travel to meet Chef C and eat his famous carrion dishes. They even bring back a snack for Mr. Conductor!

KING & CRYSTAL LIVE! - Buddy, Tiny and Mom are riding the Dinosaur Train where Crystal Cryolophosaurus is on her way to visit King Cryolophosaurus and invites the family along. King and Crystal's heartfelt reunion is marred when Crystal tries to convince a reluctant King to take his fantastic new song 'Top Carnivore' out on the road to share with his Mesozoic fans. But King doesn't like leaving home and Tiny has a great idea – King and Crystal can perform a live concert in Gondwana! The concert is a huge success, and Crystal decides to stay there with King instead of going back out on the road.

“Classic in the Jurassic: Air, Water and Land/Desert Day and Night” (#310) – premieres Wednesday, August 20

The competition's three "legs" are flying, swimming and a lap around a track. Team Cretaceous pulls ahead until the wild card of the race is revealed: Team Triassic's croc Effie Effegia who shocks the crowd when she sprints on two legs and wins the race!

DESERT DAY & NIGHT - The Pteranodon kids think that the desert must be hot all the time, but learn from Mr. Pteranodon that there might be more variety in the desert than they imagined. Upon disembarking from the Dinosaur Train, the Pteranodon kids quickly learn that their assumption that desert life was hot all the time and relatively uninhabited was incorrect. They find the desert hopping and crawling with life as creatures emerge all over, mostly underground, where they hide from the blazing sun. Nighttime in the desert is very cold and a different world than daytime!

“Classic in the Jurassic: Ultimate Face-Off/Back in Time” (#311) – premieres Thursday, August 21

CLASSIC IN THE JURASSIC: ULTIMATE FACE-OFF - The “Classic in the Jurassic” games are back, and this time, it's the Ultimate Smackdown.

Once the judges tally the results, Team Cretaceous is declared the winner and the fans love it!

BACK IN TIME - Buddy and Tiny start wondering aloud whether the Triassic was the beginning of time, and if there was anything before the Age of Dinosaurs. So Mr. Conductor walks through a Pedestrian Time Tunnel to get to the Permian time period, where they meet Deon Dimetrodon, who has never met a dinosaur or pterosaur before. Buddy and Tiny are amazed to learn that there are neither in the Permian! Deon is delighted to experience the Mesozioc Era. He walks through the Pedestrian Time Tunnel with our group, and is blown away by the vegetation and the variety and size of dinosaurs. Another lifelong friendship is forged!
