Ray Bradbury’s short-story “Tyrannosaurus Rex” was also adapted for television in 1988 as the tenth episode of the third season of
The Ray Bradbury Theater; an anthology series based on Bradbury’s short-story work that ran for two seasons on HBO, from 1985 to 1986, and then another four additional seasons on USA Network from 1988 to 1992.
Filmed in France, the episode relocates the story there. Cris Campion plays Terwilliger and Jim Dunk is Joe Clarence. Apparently it was felt that Clarence needed to be monstrous not only in behavior but in appearance and so is portrayed as bald and overweight with a grotesque (and poorly done) growth on his brow as well being a paraplegic - the later a disappointing example of anapirophobia in action.
For a story about the power of stop-motion animation, it is both surprising and disappointing how sub-par the stop-motion dinosaurs, done by one Jean Manuel Costa, in this episode are. Still its commendable that the filmmakers chose to create original stop-motion for the show rather then use stock-footage.
