Prehysteria! 2 was the sequel to the first film and was released in 1994. Mr. Cranston is a friend of the Taylor's and he watches the mini dinosaurs while they are on vacation. The five miniature dinosaurs break out of the Taylor's farm and accidentally get shipped into a crate of raisins. The crate is found in a box car by Naomi (Jennifer Harte), a girl who's father works at the train staion and a rich kid named Brendan Wellington (Kevin Connors) who she helped hide in the box car because he was being chased by bullies who were about to attack him. When the two discover the raisin crate, they get into a argument on who should keep the dinosaurs, Brendan claiming that he saw them first and Naomi claimed them on the fact that it's her box car. Brendan pays a worker for the crate knowing that the dinosaurs are inside. Brendan is unhappy because he has no friends and is desperate for attention because his father doesn't spend much time with him. Naomi and Brendan later become friends and the miniature dinosaurs help the boy get the attention he needs, and try to save him from his evil Mistress who is allergic to animals. When she finds out about Brendan having pets (not knowing they are dinosaurs) she hires 2 exterminators, she also views Brendan as a chid with a lot of problems and wants to sent him to a disciplinary school.
