Jurrassic Park Meets the Muppets

A ridiculously cool dinosaur encounter on a German TV show. Part animatronics, part puppet show, and part Sprockets. Some great Halloween costume ideas.

Easily the most awesome thing I have seen on the interwebs this month.

Gosh, and I thought the bat-loose-in-Congress video was cool.

Its the 'Walking with Dinosaurs' live show, which is a spin-off from the original BBC series http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walking_with_Dinosaurs .

We would have loved to go when it was on at the O2 in the UK, but my 5 and 2 year old would probably have had nightmares for weeks afterwards (they love dinosaurs, but....), so they will have to settle for YouTube instead. Cool link.

BTW - which was more scared? The kid or the presenter?

I would happily don that dinosaur costume and go for a stroll down the street :D

Even though I know I would collapse from exhaustion within 10 minutes of putting it on, and it needs feathers, I WANT THAT RAPTOR COSTUME.

Saw that show when it was here in Perth a few years back. Very good - altho the way the plants on the set would inflate and deflate between scenes led to much sniggering

That is about the coolest thing I have seen in a long time. thanks!
