The Dinosaur Chief appeared in the Dinosaurs episode "Hurling Day". He was made from the Turtlepuss Unisaur. His face was operated by Kevin Clash with Michelan Sisti performing the body and Harold Gould providing his voice.
In the year 61,00,003 BC (on a Thursday), the aging tribal leader announces his reluctance to be a burden on the rest of the herd. He declared that every dinosaur, upon reaching their 72nd birthday, should be hurled into a tar-pit. Thus Hurling Day was born. When asked if guys could use Hurling Day as an excuse to get rid of their mother-in-laws, the chief sagely replied, "Sure, why not?"
- His name is a reference to the La Brea Tar Pits in California.
- He is the only dinosaur character on the show to have hair (a long beard).
