Welcome To Jurassic Park

It was 22 years ago (June 11th, 1993) that Jurassic Park was released and with it’s amazing storytelling and advanced film technology that changed the movie industry as we know it (I still say animatronics are superior to CGI, but let’s table that debate for another day).

So with the release of Jurassic World, I thought we should all take a trip down memory lane and revisit some great things Jurassic Park has given us. Enjoy!

So let us reflect on those aforementioned good times we had. *WARNING* Some clips may not actually contain scenes with The Pillsbury Doughboy. Classic Commercial – Poppin’ Fresh rapping and making crescent rolls Simpsons – “Poppin’ Fresh! You glutenous little doughboy!” The Critic – “The doughboy and I happen to be ticklish in the same spot” Don’t be shocked if we see our good friend Poppin Fresh …
