Basil Brontosaurus is teased at play school by all the other little dinosaurs, who call him stupid. His mother tells him he's special because he has two brains - one in his head and one is his back. Basil is so pleased that he starts to throw his weight around at play school. That is, until he meets a large Tyrannosaurus rex!
