In Dinosaur Train, the prehistoric world of dinosaurs is shown through the eyes of Buddy, the main character of the show. Buddy is a preschool-age T-Rex (Tyrannosaurus Rex), who is adopted by a Pteranodon family when he was still a newly-hatched egg. This young T-Rex starts his adventure of learning about the different species of dinosaurs when he found out that he is of a different species, not like his family. His questions and a deep sense of curiosity about the different kinds of dinosaurs are answered as he sets foot on the Dinosaur Train.
Buddy, aboard the Dinosaur Train, goes through a Time Tunnel, enabling him and the other passengers to visit the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous worlds.
The Dinosaur Train is a one-of-a kind educational show that is child-friendly and very informative. The show gives their young audiences the opportunity to learn and satisfy their young minds about everything there is to know about the dinosaur era.
