TV series


13 x 8′




In an effort to entertain his mischievous quadruplets, an inexperienced father recasts the characters of classic fables as dinosaurs who once populated their forest a very long time ago.

Our story plays out in a forest more than ten thousand years ago, with a family of giant ground sloths named Megatherium. The anchor of each story is a father and his set of rowdy quadruplets, who seem to only calm down for storytime. Father reins in his wild bunch with the retelling of a classic fable, casting the classic stories from a recurring company of dinosaurs, and chosen for its lesson or moral addressing whatever catastrophe the kids have caused this time. The stories address themes and feelings children will be familiar with — jealousy, greed, deceitfulness, or arrogance. Kids will notice conflict first within the Megatherium family, learn about it from a fable told by Father and enacted by exciting dinosaurs, and then see the lesson or moral put into action once the story is over and we rejoin Father and newly evolved quadruplets.
