Although many representations of dinosaurs and their era contain errors, and some are long outdated, this beautiful work continues to captivate and enchant with its vivid drawing and dramatic masterpiece.
Dinosaur Mountain (1967)
Not only American authors created interesting and unique cartoons. In 1967, a very unusual cartoon was released in the Soviet Union.

This continued for millions of years until climate changes led to a dramatic finale…
