Re: [dinosaur] Biggest waves of dinomania

(7th wave) BBC and US Documentary series outbreak [1999 - 2011] - Walking with Dinosaurs (1999), Walking with Beasts (2001), Walking with Cavemen (2003) and Walking with Monsters (2005). Prehistoric Park (2006), When Dinosaurs Roamed America (2001), Dinosaur Planet (2003), Animal Armageddon (2009), Dinosaur Revolution (2011) and Planet Dinosaur (2011)

*** "Jurassic Park" (1993) movie - the start of biggest wave of Dinomania hands down

The movie viewing, and ticket sales, and merchandising-multi billions $$$ [Jurassic Park/Jurassic World trademarks]

Followed by traveling exhibits, the formation of the franchise (Jurassic Park II & III) and then later (Jurassic World I, II and upcoming III). Amusement park attractions.

I would be surprised if most of the world's population hasn't been touched in one way or another / Dinosaurs are everywhere!!!

Good day to all listmembers!

I wonder, which are the biggest "waves" (outbreaks) of so called dinomania in the history of popular culture? I would say 1.) Crystal Palace dinosaur sculptures (1854); 2.) Discoveries of giant sauropods in American West (1870Âs - 1890Âs); 3.) Description of Tyrannosaurus rex (1905) and donation of Diplodocus replicas to European museums (1905-1912); 4.) Dinosaur exhibition on WorldÂs Fair (1933 and 1964); 5.) Dinosaur renaissance (1969-1980Âs) and 6.) Jurassic Park - Jurassic World (esp. 1993 and 2015, resp.). Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!
