In prehistoric times, dangerous reptiles roam the land – but sometimes, certain dinosaurs also find unexpected companionship. A Tyrannosaurus becomes the sudden father of a baby Ankylosaurus who calls himself Umasou; a kind, seafaring Elasmosaurus befriends a mean carnivore; a Maiasaura raises a baby Tyrannosaurus as one of her own; and an unlikely 'father' runs across a curious set of eggs - but will he eat or raise them?
Both of these are short, family-friendly anime about unusual creatures and their daily lives. Both have a fairly heavy theme of friendship and are fairly easy-watching, so if you like cute, child-like anime then both of these are for you.
Penelope is a cute and lively young koala. Through her mischievous streak Penelope cunningly plans various ways to draw on the walls and furniture, or imagine a method that allows her to be noisy early in the morning.

No matter what happens, every day is a new adventure for the blue koala – even if she is a little absent-minded.
