Before the backlash (if only briefly), you know you loved him as much as he loved us and we were all a purple dinosaur-watching happy family.

Dino, The Flintstones
This rambunctious pet fit right in with his prehistoric family and proved to be Fred's best friend... next to Barney.

Grumpy, Land of the Lost
His fights with that other dinosaur Alice were less scary than interesting/trippy to watch, like pretty much everything else on that show.
