Dinosaurs was adapted into comic form for two issues published in 1992 and 1993 by Disney's Hollywood Comics. The 48-page paperback comic books featured stories based on the Dinosaurs TV show. Additionally, stand-alone stories were published in Disney Adventures magazine during this time. Comics from the series were also re-published in several Disney's Colossal Comics Collections, including an original Dinosaurs based cover appearing on Disney's Colossal Comics #10.

Four of the individual Dinosaurs comics were collected and re-published in a trade paperback entitled "Dinosaurs: Fossil Fools" (ISBN: 9781561153398).
