Climb aboard as Buddy and the entire Pteranodon family board the DINOSAUR TRAIN to embark on their first underwater adventure in the new one-hour special “Dinosaur Train Under the Sea,” airing Friday, August 20 on KLRU. The Pteranodon family learns about new aquatic creatures when they ride the train through a glass-encased time tunnel that dives down under the sea to explore the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic oceans. The train also features the new Aquacar, and open car filled with sea water for carrying their new friends.
Meet Our New Underwater Friends!
Elmer Elasmosaurus: The Dinosaur Train’s new Aquacar gets its first passenger when the Pteranodon family helps transport Elmer back to his home in the ocean. This long-necked, giant marine reptile is a deep-sea diver with a special talent for holding his breath.
Carla Cretoxyrhina: On their underwater excursion, the Pteranodon family meets up with a young shark named Carla Cretoxyrhina, who turns out to be much nicer than her reputation suggests.
The Amazing Michelinoceras Brothers: Buddy and his family continue their underwater adventure by traveling deep underwater on the Dinosaur Train to view two backwards-bounding brothers named Max and Mitch Michelinoceras.
Paulie Pliosaurus: The Pteranodon family wrap up their Dinosaur Train underwater exploration with a visit to a marine reptile called Paulie Pliosaurus, a creature known as the “T. rex of the Ocean.”
