A French-American co-production, Denver the Last Dinosaur is an Animated Series from the 1980's (as if you needed to be told) about a group of California teens that finds the last dinosaur egg and teaches the ensuing hatchling, Denver, all about skateboarding, rocking out on guitar, and generally being Totally Radical. It lasted for 52 episodes and then was promptly forgotten, along with some of the other remnants of the late-80's / early 90's dinosaur mania. The little nostalgia for the series is mostly not because the show itself is fondly remembered (it isn't very good), but because of that kick-ass theme song.
