    Dinosaurs TV Series Preliminary Concept Original Art and Production Materials Group of 9 (Jim Henson Productions/Walt Disney, c. 1988-1991). Originally conceived by Jim Henson in 1988, this series was something that he continued to work on until his death in 1990. The series was developed by Jim Henson Productions in conjunction with Michael Jacobs Productions and Walt Disney Television. It aired from 1991 until 1994. The live-action sitcom featured actors in Henson Productions designed dino-suits and had the flavor of "The Simpsons" crossed with "The Flintstones" (with maybe a little of "The Honeymooners" tossed in). Included here are three different designs for a "Mama" type figure, and a head shot of a baby "Rex". The women were created in color marker on paper with an average image area of 8" x 15". Rex is black marker on 8.5" x 11" illustration board. These four pieces are all original art. Also included are several pieces of production materials which include: a photocopy of the Rex piece affixed to a larger board, three 8" x 10" negatives (the T-Rex Woman, Triceratops Woman, and a drawing of a Triceratops), and four strips of 35mm film that have images on them of a Baby Sinclair prototype (with a horn on its head). All are in Excellent condition.
