Product Description

Land Before Time ~ Land Before Time


This 1988 animated feature from Don Bluth (An American Tail) focuses on an orphaned young dinosaur, Littlefoot, who has to make his way to the paradise of the Great Valley in order to survive a plague. Along the way, he meets up with some other dinos from different species, and they all bond and travel together. On the way, they have plenty of adventures. Even with elements of suspense, this is a pretty relaxed movie that isn't in a particular hurry to roll out its story. Kids will like the originality of the concept, and the themes of friendship and cooperation are well woven into the fabric of the entertainment, plus the music is great. Bluth's artwork looks good, though--as always--he never seems to quite catch up with the quality of the Disney machine. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Land Before Time Sept. 29 2006
This movie is absolutely beautiful and wonderful I give this movie 2 thumbs up.

I am interested in dinosaurs, I've even seen this movie so many times.

And I consider Littlefoot, Cera, Spike, Ducky, Petrie, and even Rooter as my friends.

This movie is the best.

Also the kind of dinosaur Ducky, her parents, her brothers and sisters are called the Saurolophus.

And the kind of pterosaur Petrie, his mother, his bothers and sisters are called the pteranodons since they have certian crests on the back of their heads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie, bad DVD May 25 2004
This movie was just copied onto a dvd. It's not even in widescreen format, which would show the entire screen instead of cutting off some of the screen. The extras ("how to use the remote control", etc!!!) totally stink. The movie, on the other hand, is excellent.
The scene of the mother dinosaur's death STILL brings tears to my eyes, and I am eighteen years old! It's about Little Foot, a long neck who is born into a dangerous land in which sharp tooths (sharp teeth?) run wild, earth quakes occur, and food is running out. They must reach the Great Valley in order to reach safety. Little Foot meets Duckie, the big mouth, Petrie, the flyer, and Spike. Sara, a three horn, hates Little Foot at first because Little Foot is not the same type of dinosaur that she is; however, over time, they become great friends. It is a story of endurence, friendship, and sticking together. Truly beautiful. As I said, some scenes still make me cry. My three year old nephew loves it!!!! All the sequals are musicals, but this movie doesn't have any songs! Strange!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic in American animation Dec 1 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This is it, folks. The original. It has love, suffering, death, and different characters to match different personalities, and no songs breaking out every five minutes. It also sports good animation for the time and some neat dinosaur character designs, especially for Sharptooth (who indeed was quite scary when I saw this as a young'n).
Of course, I think the moment every one remembers is the beginning when Little Foot loses his mother. Its a painful scene that still brings tears to my eyes, and the scene later where Little Foot thinks his big shadow against a rock is his mother is a sad addition, especially when he licks it and realizes what it is. Few other animated features have touched me so deeply for a character like that: even as a dinosaur they characterize love, depression, and hope into each of the characters, especially Little Foot. He essentially has to mature after the loss of his mother and lead his new friends, who haven't gone through such trauma, to the Great Valley with mean ol' Sharptooth at his heels. Sharptooth is kind of like the tank in "The Beast" in the sense that he's an enemy with one option but to kill, with no personality or voice actor to clue him in. He's just a killing machine - and that's probably what makes him so frightening.
I must also add there is some wonderful music in this picture, and fits in well with each of the individual scenes. Overall, I think this was a wonderful animated film and proved animation, even with child-like appeal, could discuss serious topics such as death and destruction. Overall, its really a milestone for American animation.

4.0 out of 5 stars the first and the best April 13 2003
its a shame that the rest of the land before time movies never lived up to the standard of the original. i loved this movie as a child - it was sad and scary enough that it felt like a "big kids" movie, as in one with real emotions in it. i liked how cera had some serious attitude, and spike was like this huge hulking dumb teenager (or something...). the animation is quite pretty and, unlike recent disney movies, looks like someone actually drew the cells. the songs are great (especially the title, which is absolutely gorgeous) and, for those of you who have kids and are concerned that they are inoculated with the "right" sort of values (and, let me tell you, its a matter of chance - kids are incorrigible and i should know), LBT hits right home with the message of friendship and cooperation and all those fuzzy things.
the only downsides to the movie are the HORRID sequels (which are about 1000 times brighter and generally stupid, as well as more obviously geared towards the "message and morals" shtick) and the fact that for years my sister (three years younger) thought that names like "long neck" and "spike tail" were the offical scientific names. i was old and smart and found that annoying. but its still a great old throwback, and hasnt aged much at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Touching. March 30 2003
By Tom
Format:VHS Tape
I just recently pulled this video out to watch with my three year old daughter and a flood of emotions surged through my veins. What a masterpiece this truly is! Dinosaurs are a species of animals that have always had a dramatic allure and fascination in regard to younger individuals, and what better way to instruct children in the many aspects of life via a movie of this description? Although some scenes are a bit heavy (i.e. the extremely tragic death of Littlefoot's mother-- a scene that still brings tears to my eyes) there are many others that completely compensate. This movie is heart-warming. Children will definitely become attached to the five main characters in this story and identify with them-- the courageous leader Littlefoot, the tempestuous and firey Cera, the innocent and meek Ducky, the comedic and playful Petrie, and the silent and cute Spike. Complete with a gorgeous soundtrack, primarily the beautiful ballad performed by Diana Ross, this is a definitive film pertaining to all aspects of life, one to be enjoyed for eons.
