Does Anyone Remember Cadillacs & Dinosaurs

Does anybody remember that great cartoon Cadillacs & Dinosaurs? Or the comic book…or video game…No? That’s ok, we do. Cadillacs and Dinosaurs was a Saturday morning cartoon series which aired on CBS from 1993 to 1994. Based on a 1986 comic book from Japan (later to be purchased by Marvel), it focused on a group of freedom fighters – including garage mechanic Jack Tenrec (who has a passion for restoring classic Cadillacs) an seductive foreign ambassador Hannah Dundee. Jack also has Hermes, a juvenile “cutter” (Allosaurus) that Jack hand reared.

It’s the 26th century, and the main characters battle not only government officials but other reborn dinosaurs alike. “The dinosaurs have come to reclaim the earth.” Together they confront the serious issues facing this futuristic environment after nature has spun wildly out of control, causing the cities to fall into ruins and dinosaurs to be revived to roam the Earth.

The show dealt with many strong ecological and political issues that were central to the plot development. One major focus was the question of how the dinosaurs managed to re-emerge after they were thought to be extinct. Another focus: How one man was able to restore so many 1952-53 Cadillac Coupe DeVilles. And also, how Hannah’s breasts managed to remain in her shirt for 13 episodes.
