There’s a new exclusive series coming to Netflix. It’s called DinoTrux, and DreamWorks Animation will be premiering their first original series this Friday on Netflix. The series takes place in prehistoric time and features creatures that are part dinosaur and part truck. I saw a screener for the first episode recently. I think kids will love the new show — especially children who are into dinosaurs. I’ve only watched one episode, but I like what I’ve seen so far. The new series kinda reminds me of the earth vehicles in Bob the Builder series. As I mention previously, DinoTrux debuts this Friday (August 14th) on Netflix.
Season One, Episode One
In this first episode of DinoTrux, the two main characters are Ty-Rux and Revvit. In the story, a volcano erupts and Ty flees into D-Structs’ territory. They battle and D-Structs wins. Ty and Revvit then spend most of the episode trying to convince the other DinoTruxs to team up to fight D-Structs. The other DinoTruxs are reluctant at first, but then they team up to rescue a DinoTrux that have fallen into a tar pit. After that, they all see teamwork can make their life easier. So they join forces to defeat D-Structs.
- Ty – Tyrannosaurus Trux (Tyrannosaurus rex + excavator)
- Revvit – Reptool (Chameleon + electric drill)
- Ton-ton – Ankylodump (Ankylosaurus + dump truck))
- Skya – Craneosaur (Brachiosaurus + construction crane)
- Dozer – Dozeratops (Triceratops + bulldozer)
- Garby – Stegarbasaurus (Stegosaurus + garbage truck)
- D-Structs – evil Tyrannosaurus Trux
Welcome to a world of giant creatures that are half dinosaur, half truck and all awesome in the new Netflix original series DreamWorks DinoTrux, the first exciting “action show” tailor-made for younger kids. It has strong messages about independence and cooperation to go along with its unique blend of action, comedy, adventure that we think will also be fun for the whole family. Meet Ty Rux, a massive Tyrannosaurus Trux, and his best friend Revvit, a razor-sharp Reptool. The Dinotrux and Reptools join forces for the first time ever to build a bigger, better world and battle back against the biggest and baddest of all: D-Structs, who threatens to wreck everything they’ve built.
