IIRC, "Uncle Beasley" was a prop used in a TV movie version of the
children's book "The Enormous Egg".  The plot being that a boy finds his
chicken is sitting on an odd egg.  The egg hatches into a baby Triceratops. 
Little baby trike grows to be the size of a dump truck.  Comedy and tragedy
ensues.

Uncle Beasley was the name given to the dino and thus to the prop left over
from the making of the movie.
