The Land Before Time Pt 2

The Land Before Time Pt 2

We have gotten through the first twenty minutes of this movie, with only 50 minutes left. After leaving off with Littlefoot coping with his mother’s death, and dealing with crippling anxiety, we shift gears.

Just when it seems like this story is nothing but darkness and despair the mother pterodactyl pops out of a hole holding a cherry for each of the baby pterodactyls, they each take one and march off happily.

They each pass Littlefoot who has been moping in self-pity conveniently near where this takes place. The last baby pterodactyl gives his cherry up to Littlefoot with a smile, but then just frowns as Littlefoot seems unimpressed by the gesture.

The Land Before Time Summary Chapter Three- The Council of Elrond

Littlefoot makes no progress in life, and there is no indication of how much time has passed, but he has reached a point of starvation where he hallucinates voices. Wearing a tree star as a hat instead of eating it, he set’s forth, only to see his shadow and think it’s his mom, he quickly licks it and realizes he’s an idiot. The realization seems to motivate and even empower Littlefoot, who shortly after runs back into Cera. For some reason, LittleFoot wants her company and has seemed to cheer up, but as in part one, Cera is still a bitch and does not want Littlefoots company.

Littlefoot once again goes to mope near a pond. There he meets a fan favorite, Ducky. Ducky is instantly the most likable character due to an adorable speech pattern and unrestricted honesty. Littlefoot tries to push Duckie away due to prejudices he has picked up from Cera, but Duckie doesn’t play that game. The two find comfort in each other’s company and now the fellowship has grown by one.

Both dinosaurs get hungry and decide to eat a talking tree, which is home to Petrie. We learn that Petrie, a pterodactyl species is unable to fly. Now, this is just my opinion, but I think Batty from Ferngully is inspired by Petrie, then of course you have Robin Williams just being Robin Williams, so in all, Batty is the better character.

Here, for SEO purposes, I want to remind you we are talking about The Land Before Time

Back to the movie. We now follow Cera, who, being the antagonist of the movie, is in a cave by herself. She sees what looks like a dead Sharp Tooth, and with no one there to witness, she decides to ram it.

Big Fucking Mistake, it’s eyes open and she screams, fades to black, assumes she is dead and let’s go back to the fellowship.

Okay, I have to admit at this point, my memory of Petrie was wrong, he might be my favorite. After calling Littlefoot ‘flathead’ and Littlefoot getting upset like that name is somehow less flattering than his actual name, Petrie posts up on LittleFoots head and keeps guard of his Treestar that he has been wearing as a hat. It turns out that tree star is the one that his mother originally gave him, I guess that was supposed to be obvious, because – whatever that is what exposition is for.

Littlefoot wants Petrie off his head, so he runs, thinking the velocity will lift the pterodactyl into the air, but instead they crash into Cera.  So she isn’t dead, unfortunate.
She then begins to tell them there is a Sharptooth still alive, but she fought it off so they are fine.

The Land Before Time Summary Chapter Five – Spike TV​

Then in one of the most memorable moments, Duckie goes off into the tall grass on her own. There are runs into a wild pokemon…or an egg that is seconds from hatching. A rather large dinosaur called a ‘Spike Tail’ comes out, eats all the grass, and passes out. The fellowship has now become 5, the narrator makes sure to let us know this is very unusual.

While standing over a small stream with Duckie swimming, Littlefoot announces he smells water…they get excited.
