Arlington, Va. - July XX, 2014 - PBS Distribution announced today it will be releasing four stories from PBS KIDS' popular DINOSAUR TRAIN series, produced by The Jim Henson Company, on the new DVD Buddy's Halloween Adventure. From visiting a haunted house for a spooky party, to learning about "Gourd Day" - a kind of Mesozoic Halloween, this DVD, available prior to October 31, features fun-filled stories the entire family will enjoy!


DINOSAUR TRAIN embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains, while encouraging basic scientific thinking skills. Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons go on whimsical adventures through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes, and oceans as they unearth basic concepts in natural science, natural history, and paleontology. The Dinosaur Train is a colorful locomotive, customized to accommodate all kinds of dinosaurs and has the ability to visit the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous worlds. The Train's Conductor, a knowledgeable Troodon, provides passengers with fascinating facts along the way. DINOSAUR TRAIN airs weekdays on PBS KIDS (check local listings).

Dinosaur Train: Buddy's Halloween Adventure will be available on September 2, 2014. The DVD has a run time of approximately 50 minutes and an SRP of $7.99. In addition to featuring the four learning adventures below, this DVD also includes special features - an interactive game, coloring pages, activities, and information for parents.

"Haunted Roundhouse"
Dad takes the kids on a special Night Train to Troodon Town, where the Troodons have decorated their Roundhouse into a "haunted house" for a spooky party. The kids end up meeting a strange new nocturnal creature - a mammal named Vlad Volaticotherium, who was hiding in the roundhouse trying to get some sleep.

"Big Pond Pumpkin Patch"
The Pteranodon family learns more about the customs of their neighbors, the Lambeosaurus family, when they are invited for the first time to accompany them to the Big Pond to celebrate "Gourd Day" - a kind of Mesozoic Halloween. The kids see their first pumpkins, and Larry Lambeosaurus even shows our family how to hollow them out and carve faces into them.

"Night Train"
Dad, Buddy and Tiny take a special ride on the Dinosaur Train at night, learning about animals that are active after dark, culminating at the Big Pond for a nature walk under the full moon.

"Fossil Fred"
Buddy, Tiny and Don play "detective" and search around the Big Pond for fossils. The kids end up finding an entire skeleton of a Jurassic dinosaur.
