Zeze would have loved the Google T-Rex no internet game.

However Mercedes wouldn't have enough patience for it.
The dinosaurs seen in the parade are based on Mercedes' drawings (can be spotted in the background of some scenes).

Zeze is also a paleontology enthusiast and likes reading about them in his encyclopedias.
The dinosaur designs are simple, yet recognisable, in order to be easy to animate and to make them seem less intimidating when put side by side with other characters.

Both the early concept art and the final animated walk cycles are drawn and coloured by hand on paper using markers and coloured pencils.
Mercedes' favourite dinosaur is the stegosaurus because it's strong and cuddly at the same time
