Primordial Plot…….Jurassic Park ??

 

100001592019174pizapw1420538219Every time the G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero episode ” Primordial Plot” comes on, I always ask myself a question……was it based on the novel of Jurassic Park or vice versa.
I have to be honest after I saw the movie, I believe it was 1995, I just assumed the G.I.Joe episode took elements from the novel, really not knowing when the novel first came out. The movie and the novel is rather complex and the episode is a simplified version of the concept……so the novel just had to come out first…..right?????
WRONG!!!!!!!!
The sad facts is, “Primordial Plot” by Donald F. Gult premiered on TV on November 12, 1985, and Jurassic Park the novel was published November 1990. So there you go, the idea of the bestselling novel, that later became a blockbuster movie was already used in a cartoon. To be honest this is not a surprise many …..and I mean many “creative ideas” were stolen from animation and comics.
