Saddle Up for Dino Ranch
Howdy Partners! Dino Ranch is the new, action-packed “pre-westoric” pre-school series created by Matthew Fernandes and launched in January 2021 on Disney Junior and CBC Gem.
The sun rises. A Pterodactyl crows. Dinosaurs roar… and a dedicated family of dinosaur-riding Dino Ranchers hits the saddles to race off for another day of fun-filled, free-range roping ‘n’ riding, dinosaur driven fun!
Dino Ranch – the ultimate playground – is a working farm and dinosaur sanctuary. It’s home to the tightknit Cassidy family, Ma (Jane) and Pa (Bo) with their adopted kids Jon – the leader and ‘dino-whisperer’, he is a fast-talking, wide-eyed young cowboy who fancies himself the fastest lasso in the west; super caring Min – she’s a young dino doctor in-training; and Miguel – a smart, deep thinking, soft-spoken inventor with big ideas. All are training to be ranchers under the sure and steady guidance of their Ma & Pa.
Accompanied by their very own distinctive dinosaur best friends, Jon’s speedy raptor Blitz; Min’s bighearted brontosaurus Clover; and Miguel’s tiny but mighty triceratops Tango –– they discover the thrill of ranch life while navigating the great outdoors through unforeseen challenges.
As the three little Dino Ranchers learn the ropes, every day is filled with unpredictable adventures – because at Dino Ranch, trouble can loom like a T-Rex on a moonless night.
The thrill-a-minute series, packed with comedic, mischievous fun, highlights the value of hard work, teamwork and commitment as the stories tackle the challenges of growing up. As well as providing an irresistible blend of dinosaurs and ranchers, the series has four key themes at its core:
- Celebrating outdoor fun
- Embracing nurturing and friendship
- Demonstrating the strength of teamwork and personal growth
- Promoting the importance of family and community
