PBS KIDS will debut an all-new CGI-animated series, Dinosaur Train, on Labor Day, September 7, 2009. The new series embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while encouraging basic scientific thinking and skills as the audience learns about natural science, natural history and paleontology. The series will join other top-ranked PBS KIDS preschool series including The Jim Henson Company’s series Sid The Science Kid, which premiered in fall 2008.
Dinosaur Train is seen through the eyes of Buddy, a preschool-aged Tyrannosaurus Rex. Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons go for adventures on the Dinosaur Train to meet all kinds of dinosaurs in different eras and learn fascinating new facts about these incredible creatures.
