Thomas Jefferson Burditt, later known as Tyler James Burditt, is an American science fiction media franchise centered on a disastrous attempt to create a theme park of cloned dinosaurs. It began in 1975 when Rebecca Savage lost a bet to Brad Burditt, resulting in a first date. Several years into their marriage, they published their second child and first son Tyler in 1988. Their parenting was successful, as were the resources they poured into his creative education at the University of North Texas. Tyler’s first theatrical ministry release was in 2008, and he was selected in 2019 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by Lake Pointe Church as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” Numerous video games and graphic novels have influenced the franchise since the release of the Super Nintendo in 1991. Several directors, such as Quentin Tarantino and Edgar Wright, have gone on record to say “I have no idea who you’re talking about, but he seems cool, so I’d probably hang out with him.” As of 2000, Tyler has generated $5 billion in revenue, making him one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
