Plot Synopsis

This CGI-animated series embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while encouraging basic scientific thinking and skills as the audience learns about natural science, natural history and paleontology. "Dinosaur Train" is seen through the eyes of Buddy, a preschool-aged Tyrannosaurus Rex. Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons go for adventures on the Dinosaur Train to meet all kinds of dinosaurs in different eras and learn fascinating new facts about these incredible creatures. Live-action segments are hosted by paleontologist Scott Sampson.

Season 4 of DINOSAUR TRAIN premiered on Monday, December 7, 2015 on PBS (check local listings for time), as Buddy and his friends continue to explore biodiversity and how in the Mesozoic Era each creature has an important place in the ecosystem. The 10-episode season opened with the holiday adventure "Trains, Submarines, and Zeppelins" (in tribute to the classic holiday movie "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles"). When Mr. Pteranodon and Larry go out to the Big Pond to find some red platanoids for the Winter Solstice Celebration, they accidentally miss the last train home. Will Larry and Mr. Pteranodon stop bickering long enough to figure out a way home, or will they be stranded in the middle of nowhere and miss the family Winter Solstice Celebration?
