Children of all ages can join Buddy and the entire Pteranodon family aboard the Dinosaur Train as they embark on their first underwater adventure exploring the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic oceans to learn about new aquatic creatures. The new special episode will premiere on the popular PBS KIDS preschool destination, an educational, hosted two-hour morning television block. (Please check local listings).
To reach their destinations in this watery adventure, the Pteranodon family rides the Dinosaur Train through a glass-encased time tunnel that dives down under the sea to visit underwater stations. The fantastical train also features the new Aquacar, an open car filled with sea water to transport their new friends. Along the way, the family meets Elmer Elasmosaurus, a giant long-necked marine reptile who dives deep and can hold his breath; the Michelinoceras brothers, two sea creatures that travel backwards; Carla Cretoxyrhina, a friendly young shark; and Paulie Pliosaurus, a marine reptile known as the “T. rex of the ocean.”
“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."
As with all Dinosaur Train episodes, my boys loved the colorful characters, their silly antics, the fun songs, and of course--the neat train (they love hearing the whistle blow!). The Under the Sea episodes were especially fun for them because they loved seeing all the fish, and both boys would always point out "Fish!" whenever they'd see one. The underwater tunnel was really cool too!
I personally thought it was neat to learn more about dinosaurs that live under the sea (why they have long necks, why some have many arms, etc.), and even the different types of seas which have different temperatures, colors, and more!
Don't forget to tune in to the premiere tomorrow, and you can also purchase a copy of the new Dinosaur Train Under the Sea DVD to be released on August 24!
