I’ve been searching for a long time now and I am not able to find the right cartoon. I remember a SciFi cartoon series where a bunch of humans travel with their spaceship and find a planet where dinosaurs are still alive.

I found Dino Adventure Jurassic Tripper so far and I'm pretty sure that it was a spaceship and not a normal ship. Also I think it is more realistically drawn.

Edit: Long time is about 20 years ago and I found in on a special German tv channel. It was in German, but it wasn't a German show. It looked like a series from the 80s or 90s. As SQB suggested it is not Dino-Riders and it was a more subtle approach - so it was not over the top with armored dinosaurs or something. Just a few humans "stranded" in a tropical enviroment discovering dinosaurs and defending themselves against the threat of being eaten.

    "Long time" for some people could be 5 years. How long ago? Was it contemporary then or was it from an earlier time maybe? Any detail you can add will help find an answer :) Sep 13, 2019 at 9:24

    As well as the previous comment you might also like to look at our story id guide to see if there is anything else you could edit in?

  • Cadillacs and dinosaurs is set in the future and satisfies the dinosaur requirement, but I don't remember spaceships.

  • Dinosaucers has both dinosaurs and spaceships; the dinosaurs are intelligent and anthropomorphic but can revert to their primitive state; still, I don't think this fits with the "survival in the wilds" theme.

Edit: OP has indicated that this is not what they're looking for.

Could it have been Dino-Riders?

The Valorians (superhumans) and the Rulons (humanoids) fight each other on a pre-historic earth, with the help of technologically augmented dinosaurs.

It was a short lived TV series that was aired first in the late '80s.
