I like the character designs and backgrounds, but the animation wasn't all that great, more on a par with Teen Titans Go! and Dexter's Laboratory, rather than Into the Spider-verse. Likewise the writing, which seemed directed at very young viewers. I even thought the voice acting was mediocre, with the actors merely reciting lines rather than acting. And the "villains" are pretty weak, intended to embody "today's lesson". Disappointing, I thought.

I loved it. The animation style really fits the whole idea of a fire-engine-red T. Rex stomping around the Lower East Side.

I will buy all the toys for this show. Especially that Devil Dinosaur plush that's supposedly coming out later this year.

I didn't love the animation style at first but the more I watched, the more it worked for me. I also didn't mind the lesson of the week stuff because that's the audience it's for. It didn't feel condescending to me and dealt with things kids deal with. I know I would've loved the hell out of this as a child.

Seriously, all the toys.

Weirdly, this show isn’t available on Disney+ in Canada? And I can’t figure out why…

It looks like it has to first air on the Disney Channel in your locality before they can release it on D+.
