Because no one remembers Og's 65 millionth birthday at the museum where heas dinosaur boneslives, he decides to go ""outside.'' Everything has changed from what he remembered of that world: streets, buildings, people, noise and speed. When nighttime comes, he sees the stars, and is relieved that they haven't changed. Returning home to the museum, Og gets a real surpriseall his friends have gathered for a birthday party. Young uses cartoony drawings to stress the importance for young and old of a good rousing birthday celebration. And the contrast between the modern setting and Og's very old bones is weirdly funny.
