The following stories are included on the DVD:
“Now With Feathers!”
Dad gives Tiny and Buddy a mystery feather and the kids become “detectives,” riding the Dinosaur Train to meet Valerie Velociraptor, who shows our kids what life is like covered with beautiful feathers.
Buddy, Tiny, Don and Mrs. Pteranodon head to the thicket to ask a Therizinosaurus family about their colossal claws. They demonstrate how they use their claws for self-defense, while the daughter, Teri, shows the kids her favorite practice spot.
“The Old Bird”
Buddy, Tiny and Mom ride the Dinosaur Train on a play date with Petey Peteinosaurus, and meet Arlene Archaeopteryx, a bird from the family of the oldest birds ever! The kids learn that Arlene is both a bird and a dinosaur.
When Don finds a mystery tooth in Dad’s old tooth collection, Dad decides to take the kids on an investigation. They discover that the tooth belongs to a dinosaur called Masiakasaurus, a creature with a mouthful of protruding buck teeth!
Mr. Pteranodon is annoyed when some hadrosaurs move in next door! The new neighbors are a family of Lambeosaurus, who have crests that hoot – and too loudly, as far as Dad is concerned. After a rocky start, the Pteranodon and Lambeosaurus families agree on terms they can both live with and become fast friends.
“An Armored Tail Tale”
The Pteranodons tag along as Hank Ankylosaurus visits the Big Pond to scout a Dinoball talent named Eugene Euoplocephalus. Eugene is a smaller version of Hank, an armored dinosaur with a giant tail-club. Hank and Eugene really hit it off, and after they all play Dinoball, Hank recruits Eugene to play on his team!
“The Wing Kings”
The Pteranodon family stretches their wings at Quetzalcoatlus Canyon, where Mr. Pteranodon flew when he was younger and was nicknamed the “Wing King.” The family meets Quincy Quetzalcoatlus and his Dad, a huge flying Pterosaur. Together, the two “Wing Kings” wow their kids with some sensational aerial acrobatics.
At the Big Pond, Tank introduces the Pteranodon family to his friend, Stacie Styracosaurus, a fellow Ceratopsian with a crown of elaborate horns on her head. Everyone attends Stacie’s “Hornucopia” celebration, where she reveals her new big horns and then performs a moonlit shadow show with her Styracosaurus family.
