Unfortunately, though, Melanie and Philip the Tyrannosaurus did not make it to the end of the series. While Melanie was looking for commitment, Phil was too busy terrorizing the neighborhood and tearing people to shreds. I can't imagine that he could brush his teeth to remove the smell of his lunch since he had such puny arms, either.
