Screwy, ain't it?

We're Back! A Dinosaur Story is an animated that was released in 1993 based on a children's book by Hudson Talbott. The film is about four dinosaurs who are given human intelligence and are taken to the future by a good-hearted inventor named Captain Neweyes. Their goal is to fulfill the dreams of children who want to meet real dinosaurs. In other words, it's The Land Before Time set in New York City.

The movie has an excellent set of cast members such as John Goodman, Walter Cronkite and Jay Leno. It received mix reviews.

At the end of the film, when our heroes return home, the evil Professor Screweyes is left behind and gets devoured by crows. Kind of random, huh? It would have made sense if the animators didn't remove clip:

Infamous Cut "Cage" scene (1:20 to 2:13)

This removed footage provides Screweyes an origin that explains his obsession over fear and why he's evil. Then again, it would probably be too dark to have in a family film.

We're Back! A Dinosaur Story belongs to Amblimation.
