Tales of Ty the T-Rex

About Ty

Ty the T-Rex (and Ty the T-BULL) are award winning Music Cartoons – it’s Music Dinomation!  http://tythetrex.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Sizzler.mp4   Our cartoons use colourful fun-loving characters that sing and laugh their way through enduring life-long lessons that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. Synopsis Each music cartoon has one or more characters facing a dilemma or learning a concept familiar to pre-school children.  A variety of music is used that extends from rock, rap, country, jazz or even zydeco.     Characters   Ty the T-REX is a big green Tyrannosaurus Rex with a mop of orange hair and a giant toothy grin. Even though most of Dino City’s residents are friendly, Ty is the most enthusiastic and charismatic. He loves food and is always thinking about his next meal; for everyone Ty is an amazing cook and often shares his healthy ideas and messages with his friends (and the audience too)!   Rudy Raptor moves a mile a minute. Before he finishes one idea he’s usually on to the next. Rudy often joins Ty and Hank on their adventures because he can’t stand being left out of the fun. Rudy is a schemer and is always thinking up games and adventures for his dinosaur friends to play.     Steffy Stegosaurus has a beautiful blue appearance, blond wavy hair and a friendly smile, which is extremely contagious to all.  Steffy can be very serious and earnest, but also loves to tell all sorts of funny dinosaur jokes that make Ty and his friends roll around on the ground giggling and laughing hysterically!     Hank the Ankylosaur is pudgy and has an enormous and powerful club tail.  Hank processes information a little slower than his peers, but he can add great comic relief to a tense situation.  He is very much a go-with-the-flow kind of dinosaur, always willing to tag along on Ty’s adventures. He is the eternal optimist and when he gets excited his giant club tail shakes and rattles uncontrollably causing great-unknown adventures.   Secondary Characters: Parry Parasolophus is a large duck-billed dinosaur with 43 rows...
