Dino Boy in the Lost Valley, also known as Dino Boy, is a series of action/adventure segments of Space Ghost & Dino Boy, produced by Hanna-Barbera (H-B) for CBS' Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1966 to 1967, airing 18 episodes that spanned one season.

After parachuting from a disabled plane (presumably flown by his parents, although this isn't clarified), Todd finds himself an orphan in a mysterious prehistoric valley. While alone, he is attacked by a sabretooth tiger, but is suddenly saved by the caveman Ugh, beginning their friendship and adventures in this undiscovered world.

The entire original series has been released on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc.





The score was composed by Ted Nichols, who was credited as musical director.
