I love letting Mitch watch cartoons on Netflix because there’s no boring commercials for acne cream, lawyers, senior health insurance or really lame toys. (I can still hear the theme song for Stuffies raging though my head as I type this.) I’m still not sure who the cable companies think their target demographic is for morning cartoons… Seniors with acne on a shopping spree for their grandkids as they recover from a pelvic mesh surgery? And what is pelvic mesh? Never mind, I don’t want to know.
This is why everything we watch is either recorded or from Netflix.

One of the things I’m really loving about Netflix lately is the ton of original children’s programming they’re producing with the help of DreamWorks. The newest one I’ve been checking out with Mitch is DinoTrux. Sort of Bob the Builder meets dinosaurs, the show is about mechanical dinosaurs living in the “Mechazoic” era. It’s for younger kids with a, TV-Y7 rating.
The series just launched in August and they released 10 episodes for your binge watching pleasure. Watch DinoTrux on Netflix here.
The main characters of DinoTrux are Ty Rux, theTyrannosaurus Trux and his little buddy Revvit, a Rotilian Reptool. Ty is a T-rex excavator combo and Revvit is part lizard, part electric drill. Weird? Maybe. But it works.
The show is good fun, with lots of team work and friendship building…without laying it on too thick. They manage to side step the whole predator/prey issue by making the DinoTrux food source ore, not each other. That’s one thing that always bothered me with kid’s dino shows–you really don’t play soccer with your lunch.
If you have a kid that loves dinosaurs and big trucks, I definitely give this one a try.
