Ok. This one's been bugging me for years. I've Googled just about every combination of keywords imaginable and have come up empty. Hopefully someone here will remember this.

There was a cartoon in the '80s--I believe it was an after-school special and not a series. It involved a young high school kid (I remember him wearing a red varsity jacket) and a scientist turns him into a dinosaur and kidnaps him. I specifically remember the kid (in the same red varsity jacket, only now he's a dinosaur) being held in a cage by the scientist, who I am pretty sure turns into a dinosaur, himself. The scientist feeds the kid a sandwich that contains peanut butter and green jelly beans (I don't know why I remember that, but that's a weird sandwich).

That is literally all of the information I remember. I don't know the year, but I think it was the late 1980s. I don't remember the network, but I think maybe ABC or NBC, or maybe even PBS. No idea.

That's it. Good luck, I hope someone out there knows what I'm talking about, because it has been driving me crazy for years (my brother and I are convinced that we made it up...but I know it was real!)

Thanks!!! Smile

Sounds like,..

CBS Storybreak

episode:
The Double Disappearance
of Walter Fozbek


..although you also might've added
a few elements from the episode
The Monster's Ring
the varsity jacket, and the fact the protagonist was transformed
rather than transported to another dimension)

Wow, I am EXTREMELY impressed. I am 99% sure this is it, but I can't find any pictures from it or any video clips. Now I have to find it!!!

Thanks for the reply!

No youtube clips, but seems someone(WON 5SN)
is on the hunt for them. The Monster's Ring
Dragon's Blood and The Gammet Cup seem to be recent finds
With any luck, eventually Walter Fozbek might be posted

If you're interested, the CBS Storybreak special is based on a book of the same name by Steve Senn- here's a blog with some pictures of various covers of the book and some more details about it, including a mention of the CBS Storybreak special.
