In 1985 CBS aired a documentary
hosted by Superman himself, Christopher Reeve. With the use of go-motion animation
, a variant of stop motion animation, special effects supervisor Phil Tippett
- who later went on to use this technique in the long shots for Jurassic Park
- brought the world of dinosaurs vividly to life for me and many other kids of the 80's (back when networks allowed nerds on camera and documentaries took their time.) These scenes have haunted my imagination all my life, and occasionally my mind will drift to a half-remembered forest, where a T-rex stalks a horned dinosaur under a full moon, while the most menacing meteor ever visualized drifts slowly towards Earth...
You may smile at the affectionate references to the Brontosaurus
, but watch, and enjoy, the world of the Dinosaur!
