"Land of the Dinosaurs" is the twenty-seventh episode of the animated series The Little Mermaid TV series, originally aired on October 8, 1994.


Ariel powers up the trident

Ariel powering up her father's trident

Ariel finds a map to the Island of Prehistoria and decides to ask her father if she can go. Meanwhile, King Trition is too tense to do anything these days because Sebastion is being very annoying. Ariel and her family go on a vacation in the summer pole where it is cold, but relaxing. Ariel and Flounder see dinosaurs trapped in ice. Flounder was also frozen in ice, but he was released and caught a cold. Ariel wanted to share the same kindness to the poor creatures. Flounder just wanted some of the dinosaurs to look like the carnivore. Ariel thinks that the meat eating dinosaur can't be that bad (she thinks he's smiling). Ariel releases them. The ice melts and out comes a family of Apatosaurus (mother and baby), a Tyrannosaurus Rex (big male), a Triceratops (huge adult), and a Stegosaurus (large male). The juvenile Apatosaurus cuddles with its mother Apatosaurus. Ariel was happy that the dinosaurs feel so good, but Flounder knows that they're good and hungry. The Tyrannosaurus Rex becomes hungry. He sees the Stegosaurus and licks his lips and battles the herbivore. The Tyrannosaurus whacks the trident with his tail and the trident falls into a trench and the dinosaur spots Ariel and Flounder. Ariel and Flounder think that the Tyrannosaurus can't swim so he will drown. However, something worse happens, the Tyrannosaurus becomes land breathing and aquatic. He is able to breathe in water and swim. The Tyrannosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops are able to breathe in water (the trident blast must have gave the dinosaurs powers after they were released). The Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and Stegosaurus all go on a rampage and one of Ariel's sisters told Triton that Ariel had the trident. Sebastian almost got crushed by the Tyrannosaurus Rex. All the merpeople swim, until a family of Humpback Whales arrived. The Stegosaurus and Triceratops were frightened so they leave and go back to land. The Tyrannosaurus fights the bull whale, but he hits the dinosaur with his tail. Ariel thanks the whale for saving everyone. The Tyrannosaurus had enough so he laves and heads back to land. Triton gets his trident and he sees the Apatosaurus, Tyrannosaurs, Triceratops, and Stegosaurus walking back on land. Triton realized Ariel has found the Lost Land of Prehistoria. Triton melts the ice and the dinosaurs all become happy where there was water and trees on their island home. Ariel takes cares of Flounder and Triton and the turtle have to deal with Sebastian. Sebastian told Triton to read him a story and get him more snowcones.
