The film's plot concerns a young Apatosaurus named Littlefoot who becomes orphaned after the death of his mother, caused from injuries suffered while battling an malevolent Tyrannosaurus ("Sharptooth") and the effects of an earthquake. Littlefoot flees famine and upheaval to search for the "Great Valley", an area which has been spared devastation. During his journey, he encounters four young companions: Cera, a Triceratops; Ducky, a Parasaurolophus; Petrie, a Pteranodon; and Spike, a Stegosaurus.[2] The film explores issues of prejudice between the different species and the hardships they endure in their journey as they are guided by the spirit of Littlefoot's mother.

Plot synopsis

The film opens with an underwater scene of fish swimming with other creatures. The narrator explains that there is a drought, and the dinosaurs are heading west for the Great Valley. During a storm, Littlefoot (an Apatosaurus) is born from a last lonely egg. He is protected by his mother, grandmother, and grandfather... all that remains of his herd. They first meet a group of friendly animals who want to congratulate Littlefoot's mother but Littlefoot is very bashful. His mother knows the animals just want to look at Littlefoot. He soon learns they are friendly and falls asleep on his mother's back.

Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ...


When Littlefoot is older, his mother explains that the land is changing, and that they must reach the Great Valley. She gives him a single tree star as a gift. Later, Littlefoot encounters Cera (a Triceratops). She chases an insect, which sprays her in the face. Littlefoot laughs, which angers Cera. But Cera's father interrupts, saying that "Threehorns never play with Long Necks." Littlefoot's mother explains that every species keeps to itself, and reassures Littlefoot that there will be other Longnecks in the Great Valley for him to play with. Species (type) Marsh, 1890 Triceratops (IPA: ) was a herbivorous genus of ceratopsid dinosaur that lived during the late Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period, around 68 to 65 million years ago (mya) in what is now North America. ...


That night, Littlefoot is awoken by a frog (still with a tail) named Hopper. He chases it through a cave and meets Cera. They play with the bubbles in a pond, become friends and are attacked by Sharptooth (a Tyrannosaurus rex). They hide in a thorny growth, and Sharptooth crawls on his belly after them smelling for them. Littlefoot gets caught in some thorny vines and as he breaks free a thorn snaps back and strikes Sharptooth in his right eye, blinding him. Sharptooth leaps up after them, but Littlefoot's mother arrives and engages the carnivore. Sharptooth and Littlefoot's Mother trade blows as an earthquake erupts around them, and she is seriously injured when another Sharptooth leaps on her back and rips out a tract of flesh with his jaws and cuts her neck. However, she manages to rescue Littlefoot and Cera, casting the meat eater into a deep ravine opened up by the earthquake. Binomial name Tyrannosaurus rex Osborn, 1905 Synonyms Manospondylus gigas Dynamosaurus imperiosus Dinotyrannus megagracilis Nanotyrannus lancensis? Tyrannosaurus (IPA pronunciation or ; from the Greek τυραννόσαυρος, meaning tyrant lizard) is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur. ...


After the earthquake, many herds and families are separated. Littlefoot searches for his mother and finds her lying on her side, suffering from her injury, too weak to get up despite his urgings. Before she passes away, she asks Littlefoot if he remembers the way to the Great Valley, and reassures him that she'll always be with him, even if he can't see her.


The next day, Littlefoot, sad, angry, and confused, slides down a ravine and falls on an armoured dinosaur named Rooter. He explains that his mother's death was nobody's fault. A pterosaur offers Littlefoot a cherry, but he's too upset to notice his hunger. Later, as he crosses a desert, a gold light shines upon him. When Littlefoot peers into his reflection, he hears his mother's voice guiding him. He understands, and leaves the desert. He meets up with Cera and asks her to join him. She refuses and slides down a chasm. Suborders Pterodactyloidea Rhamphorhynchoidea * Pterosaurs (, from the Greek πτερόσαυρος, pterosauros, meaning winged lizard, often referred to as pterodactyls, from the Greek πτεροδάκτυλος, pterodaktulos, meaning winged finger ) were flying reptiles of the clade Pterosauria. ...


Littlefoot is greeted by Ducky (a baby Parasaurolophus, also separated from her family) at a lake. Littlefoot says that longnecks don’t speak to other species, so Ducky pretends to be a Longneck. The two journey together. When Littlefoot tries to eat a raw tree, they encounter Petrie, a baby Pteranodon who cannot fly. Species (type) Wiman, 1931 Ostrom, 1961 Parasaurolophus was a genus of hadrosaurid (duck-billed) dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous Period (about 76-65 million years ago) of what is now North America. ...

Meanwhile, Cera encounters a comatose Sharptooth. Believing him to be dead, she charges at him mischievously, accidentally awakening him. As she flees, she meets up with the others, and tries to warn them about Sharptooth. Littlefoot refuses to believe her. Cera, while describing her encounter (embellishing the story to make herself appear less cowardly), accidentally flings Ducky into a patch of grass, where she meets a hungry Stegosaurus hatchling whom she names Spike. Species Marsh, 1877 (type) Marsh, 1887 Gilmore, 1914 Stegosaurus (IPA: ) is a genus of stegosaurid armoured dinosaur from the Late Jurassic period (Kimmeridgian to Early Tithonian) in what is now western North America. ...


That night after eating their lunch, Littlefoot settles down by himself, but soon Ducky, Petrie, Spike and Cera huddle with him for warmth. In the morning his treestar is crushed when Sharptooth attacks. They escape through a mountain cave, and emerge next to a rock shaped like a longneck. Littlefoot believes they are going the right way. Soon, ash falls from the sky, and they come to a volcanic wasteland. Exhausted, Cera opts for an easier path. She and Littlefoot fight after she insults his mother and his species. Littlefoot leaves the group, but he goes back to save Spike, Petrie and Ducky from a tar pit.


Meanwhile, Cera is being terrorized by a group of aggressive Pachycephalosaursus. Littlefoot and the others, disguised as a giant, tar-covered monster in form of a Sharptooth, scare them off and then terrorize her. Cera, ashamed and embarrassed about leading her friends into danger, decides to go her own way.


Later on, as Littlefoot, Spike, Ducky, and Petrie are frolicking in a pond, they spot Sharptooth in the distance. In order to stop him once and for all, Littlefoot formulates a plan to lure him into the deep end of the pond and drown him by dropping a large rock on the edge of a nearby cliff onto his head. Ducky succeeds in luring Sharptooth into the water, but Littlefoot and Spike are not strong enough to move the rock. Petrie suddenly learns to fly, rescues Ducky, and attempts to distract Sharptooth. But Sharptooth notices the trap and leaps on top of the rock. Balanced precariously on the edge, he snaps at them. In the nick of time, Cera arrives and crashes into the rock, knocking it off balance just enough to send it and Sharptooth over the cliff and into the pond. Sharptooth attempts to drag Petrie down with him, and the his friends believe him to have perished. However, he escapes by a narrow margin, to the joy of Ducky and the others. The term margin has many meanings: In telecommunication, margin has the following meanings: In communications systems, the maximum degree of signal distortion that can be tolerated without affecting the restitution, without its being interpreted incorrectly by the decision circuit. ...


After the battle, Littlefoot is on the ledge of a mountain, lamenting at his inability to find the valley, when his mother's soul appears in the form of a sauropod shaped cloud. He yells for her not to go, but as she dissipates she leads him through a cave and onto a cliff, where her soul shines a light that reveals the Great Valley. Littlefoot returns for the others, and they rejoin their relatives and live in peace for generations. Ducky finds her sisters and mother, Spike meets his new "family", Cera finds her father, Petrie finds his mother and siblings and Littlefoot finds his grandparents.

Editing of the film

Like Disney's The Black Cauldron, which was made three years earlier, and Warner Bros./Zoetrope's The Outsiders, which was made five years earlier, The Land Before Time went under a severe cutting and editing of footage. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas thought that some scenes in the movie would appear too frightening or could even cause psychological damage to young children. Around 10 minutes of footage, a total of 19 fully animated scenes, were cut from the final film. Much of the cut footage consisted of the Tyrannosaurus rex attack sequence and sequences of the five young dinosaurs in severe situations of peril and negative stress. Don Bluth was unhappy with the cuts, and fought for all the footage, but in the end he had to settle on a final running time of 66 minutes, one of Don Bluth’s shortest; in fact one of the shortest feature films ever produced (depending on how "feature film" is defined).[3] Because this cut footage no longer exists, the deleted scenes are not available on video or DVD.

Another part of the movie that was going to be eliminated was the death of Littlefoot’s mother. However, it was thought that if the scene were removed it would simply produce problems in explaining why Littlefoot had to journey to the Great Valley alone. In the end, psychologists were shown the scene and gave feedback to the production team. The character of Rooter was brought into the story to soften the emotional blow, and teach Littlefoot and the audience that although loved ones may die, they are always with us in the lessons we have learned from them.[3] Littlefoot is a character in the Land Before Time film series. ...

Sequels and spin-offs

The movie generated many direct-to-video sequels. The sequels depart from the style of the original significantly by adding "sing-a-long" musical numbers akin to Disney animated films, and toning down the intensity seen in the original film. Don Bluth and his animation studio have no affiliation with any of the film's sequels. The Land Before Time is a series of animated films. ...

A recent television series has been released in North America which follows the style of the sequels in terms of the morality and the musical numbers (with some of the songs being shortened, reworked versions of songs from the sequels).


Trivia

  • Steven Spielberg and George Lucas originally wanted the film to have no dialogue, like The Rite of Spring sequence in Fantasia, but the idea was abandoned in favor of using voice actors in order to appeal to children.[3]
  • It was George Lucas's idea to make Cera a female Triceratops.[3]
  • Before her death before Land, and another Don Bluth film starring the actress All Dogs Go to Heaven, were released, Judith Barsi said that her role of Ducky was her favourite of her film roles, and Ducky's trademark line "Yep Yep Yep" was placed on she and her mother's tombstones.
  • The film was originally planned for release in Fall of 1987, but the production and the release date were delayed by a year due to the relocation of Sullivan Bluth Studios to Dublin, Ireland.
  • Not including his's non-full-length feature works, this is the shortest film Don Bluth has directed.
  • Despite the original theatrical trailer never found on the internet, it is found on the Casper's Haunted Christmas DVD's "Reccomendations" section.

I wish Don Bluth and his crew could find all of the lost footage of The Land Before Time if not it may wait for the future and see for yourself it will be a special collectors edition restored and remastered as possible, don't forget behind the scenes documentaries, trailers, tv spots, you know never before deleted scenes or something, commentaries and many, many, many, many more, I hope Universal Home Entertainment if you read this please release it on DVD and Blu-Ray and get Bluth and his staff to provide the extras too will you?
