I'd have to say Dino Squad. It apparently has two (naked) Velociraptors that manage to escape the extinction by hiding in a cave. And then they stay inside for 60 million years or so.(Yeah...) Then they find out they can transform into humans. Naturally the good 'raptor becomes a mentor for the five main characters, while the evil one goes and tries to revert the present day back to the Mesozoic.(Don't know how that works but okay...) So far so good, right? That 60 MYA thing might be explained through their magic, but otherwise it's okay right? But now we get to the characters.
So now we've got 5 characters that can change into dinosaurs, right? But the thing is, EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEIR DINOSAUR FORMS is inaccurate. We've got a T. Rex(Also naked, by the way), a Pteranodon with a long tail(Not completely naked, but still), and a Styracosaurus with a Triceratops-like head. BUT WHY IS THE SPINOSAURUS'S SUPER POWER SUPER SPEED? And that Stegosaurus? Baloney! It's got five spikes, no beak, sharp teeth and lizard-like eyes...boi. And in the first episode, the evil 'raptor tries to send a Tylosaurus against the main cast. But it's called a Megalodon. MEGALODON, AS IN EVERYONE'S FAVORITE CLAM. Now say this out loud. Lizards are not related to fish or clams.
Congratulations. You are far smarter than the people who wrote this show.
The worst dinosaur show I have watched was dinosaur train because it was a show trying to teach kids about dinosaurs when it included naked dinosaurs the deinonychus was one of the worst cases of this with its lack of feathers.Another show that kinda sucked was dinosaur king because it was pokemon or yugioh but with dinosaurs and dinosaurs chibis.

i also hated dinosaur train, and even though how bad it was dino king was my life when i was younger, it was like pokemon to me XD
I'm a Dinosaur. Holy jumping Jesus of John H. Ostrom and Jeholosaurus, I'm a Dinosaur. For a show that tries to be educational, they fail EVERYTHING real hard; look closely, and you'll see that EVERY EPISODE has at least ONE inacuraccy. Examples include(but are not limited to):
Brachiosaurids having long diplodocid-like tails(Yeah, have fun.).
A Velociraptor with an Allosaurus-like skull. And Allosaurus in the show has a T. rex-like skull.
Pronated hands on all the theropods, even Abelisaurus.
Stegosaurus having 8 plates arranged perfectly in rows and no beak.
Sauropods using dumb gimmicks to escape from predators.
Tyrannosaurids with three fingers. Come on, anyone can get that right.
Argentinosaurus living at the same time and place as Compsognathus. Said Argentinosaurus, by the way, says he only needs to eat 100 lbs of food a day(in real life, he could have eaten up to a ton).
A Troodon that might as well have been a Coelophysis. Good luck living in the Arctic without feathers.
All of the dinosaurs that should have been feathered either had none at all or were sparsely feathered and in the wrong locations. The only dinosaur with correct feather placement and enough feathers is Bavarisaurus...which isn't even a dinosaur; it was a lizard.
Dilophosaurus being the largest Jurassic theropod.
Animals not being given consistent sizes. In the Compsognathus episode, Allosaurus's no taller than the little C himself, but in the Stegosaurus one, he's HUGE.
Blatant misspellings and mispronounciations of dinosaurs. For example: Sinornithoides. It's sine-or-nith-oi-DEEZ in real life or something like that: in the show it's suh-nor-nith-ides.
Afrovenator(African plunderer) in South America, anyone?
Plesiosaurus laying eggs.
The Mammoth is apparently a dinosaur.
Please explain to me why Zuniceratops is on the show but Triceratops isn't. Same with Pinacosaurus and Ankylosaurus, Baryonyx and Spinosaurus, and why Allosaurus has a few cameos but never gets an episode for himself.
Ultrasaurus and Supersaurus, just Ultrasaurus and Supersaurus. Chances are they never even existed.
And many more. You all are welcome I'm not showing them all.
The Walking With Dinosaurs movie. They turned an awesome accurate (at the time) show that was probably the best representation of how animal documentaries should be made, into a kid movie with talking dinosaurs. Sigh. I actually thought it would be along the same vein as the show, so the first time the dinosaurs talked it caught me totally by surprise. I I turned it off 25 minutes in, couldn't stand watching the whole thing.

4f pointed out to me how jarring it is to have cartoony characters on a realistic background, and I get that. But I still adore everything. Like rex cowboys herding longhorns in front of a beautiful sunset? Yas.
I sort a wish there would be a lot more rex action, just the fact they were good guys had me jumping with joy. Someone said that it kind of makes sence why they kept some inaccurate feature ON PURPOSE, but he said they could have a very minimum of feathers in a cowboy hair style, I actually think that would have looked decent.
Exterme Dinosaurs a cartoon that has the main character turning into dinosaurs that look terrible.I do not remember the plot but I do rember the horrible dinosaurs the pteranodon has arms as well as wings,the stegosaur has no beak (running trend here),the T-rex has three fingers and the triceratops has sharp teeth, wiwich is the same as the rest.

Its name literally means toothless wing,and for the second one i am talking about plain and simple pteranodon not nyctosaurs or any other pterosaur you can tell by the head crest not to long but its there.Also it had literal arms i mean six pairs of limbs 2 wings,2 arms and 2 legs.
Holy SHIT, Jaigantic, NEVER tell that movie to me AGAIN. I HATED it.
Has anybody ever seen "Clash of the Dinosaurs?" Yeah, it's the best documengtary ever, with half-assed Deinonychus with half-assed feathers, sauropods with stomach acids that can apparently corrode stainless steel, "Parasarophaluses" using supersonic weapons to fight carnivores, Tyrannosaurs that are too dumb to live, Triceratops that are too dumb to live, two Deinonychus that can apparently kill a Sauroposeidon easily, sauropods that are used for comic relief, and, worst of all, Quetzalcoatluses that are completely worng, inaccurate, and more broken than a Magikarp that has a BST of 1000, and can learn Explosion. Jeez, is this a documentary or I'm a Dinosaur!?
Conclusion: WHAT WAS DISCOVERY THINKING WHEN THEY MADE THIS!?
I know what I'm thinking. I might carve a Gyarados out of wood, decorate it with Christmas lights, and throw it into an albatross nest. Then I'll go take a shit on a piece of toast while I'm wearing a fish head on my roof and singing "Emperor's New Clothes."
Did you expect me to say any of this? No, probably not. Neither would expect this horrible documentary of abominations. Case closed.

It's simple, they streamline it for a general audience that's expecting the same inaccurate shit who only cares because "HOLEE FICK DA DINOSORES!", and couldn't give any less of a damn about anything else in the movie. It's not even really just a dinosaur thing, it's a problem with all American documentaries that give in to the 'AwesomeBRO" mentality (you know the kind, where they show the exact same 3 shots of something cool dozens upon dozens of times throughout the movie).
It's a good reason for profit, pretty shit reason for quality.
Precisely. I remember in the third episode of Clash of the Dinosaurs they said that Triceratops was capable of swinging its head in almost all directions. And then they just hammered the same facts and animation over and over again for 10 minutes. Ditto everything else on the show.
And I'm going to go fetch another link to a horrible documentary for you guys.
Here it is. Pray to the almighty Onix and open this link if you wish to put your life on the edge, for once you watch this, you will be scarred for life. So.
In this link will be the unholy shit-crusted grail of the entire shit-crusted dinosaur documentary buisness. My words, and anybody else's words, are FUTILE in describing the horror this ABOMINATION has brought upon us.
Then I'll go take a shit on a piece of toast while I'm wearing a fish head on my roof and singing "Emperor's New Clothes."
Panic! At the Disco? Good choice.
Also. Remember that T-rex autopsy fake documentary? It was pretty interesting but it's effect on the more impressionable paleo fanatics is inexcusable. I've heard people who thought it was legitimately a real tyrannosaurus body.
there was a really bad australian movie i watched once where a kid goes back in time and meets his gran when she was only a teenager living in a tree house the acting was terible as well as the grafics and the whols thing looked like it was photoshoped by a 5 yr old i cant remeber the name of the film but it was the worst thing to ever cross in my visoion and it still gives me nightmares because hoe bad it all was
