Dinosaurs, Baby Sinclair Puppet

original movie prop

This is a hero Baby Sinclair puppet screen used in the 1991 Jim Henson-produced TV series Dinosaurs. Baby Sinclair is the youngest member of the Sinclair; newly hatched in the premiere episode, "The Mighty Megalosaurus,” his catchphrases include "I'm the baby, gotta love me!" and "Not the mama!" The latter is often uttered to his dad Earl Sinclair, whom the baby repeatedly batters with a frying pan while the baby's relationship with mother Fran Sinclair is more stable and mutually affectionate. Baby is briefly named "Aaah Aagh I'm Dying You Idiot," the result of the then-Chief Elder keeling over during the official christening and by episode's end, he has been legally named "Baby Sinclair.” Baby Sinclair was heavily marketed appearing in assorted toys, Happy Meal prizes and the music video "I'm the Baby (Gotta Love Me)". He was featured on the box art of most Dinosaurs video releases and was the only character to appear outside of the series, serving as a co-host on the special For Our Children. As a hand puppet and the smallest member of the show's core regular cast, the character was portrayed by Kevin Clash (best known as the voice and puppeteer of Elmo on Sesame Street) with the eyes operated by John Kennedy and the arms by Terri Hardin. This puppet was used throughout the TV series in multiple episodes and has all his wires and robotics still intact.
