Four new episodes of The Jim Henson Company’s Dinosaur Train are set to premiere the week of May 24, 2010 on PBS Kids in the US.
The CGI preschool series’ new summer-themed episodes will launch in tandem with two new games on www.pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain. The All Aboard game allows children to control the train as a junior conductor and Dinosaur Tracks involves tracing dinosaur footprints in the mud.
Each half-hour episode, meanwhile, includes two 11-minute animated segments with live-action sequences featuring paleontologist Dr. Scott Sampson. Dinosaur Train is produced by The Jim Henson Company in association with Singapore animation company Sparky Entertainment.
