Daytime Heroes: Extreme Dinosaurs (1997)

Earlier this week, we discussed DIC/Bohbot's mid-90's series, Street Sharks. After that series ended its 3 year run, it cleared the way for a spin-off borne during its final season.

Extreme Dinosaurs wasn't DIC's 1st attempt at sentient dinos, of course, as this came a decade after Dinosaucers. The other common link between the two shows was that you had two groups from another world at war on Earth. The Raptors want to reconfigure our world to resemble theirs. The Dino Vengers, as our heroes were known initially, intend to prevent that from happening.

I didn't see much of this in its original run, so there won't be a rating. To tie you over, here's an episode that uses an age old trope cribbed from a 50's sci-fi classic. Time for "The Incredible Shrinking Dinosaurs":
