I am SO thrilled with episode six! It's definitely my fave so far. We have injury, fire, Sharpteeth galore, the Mysterious Beyond, everything rolled together! When Red Claw jumped out after Petrie was talking about bad luck again, I was actually taken by surprise!  :blink:

I think the animation in this episode is MUCH better. The characters' faces were not so deformed as the other episodes. I would even say it looked like movie-quality animation (well, from what I could tell from the recording, anyway!)

I love Spike's 'talking' hee hee. He makes the cutest sounds! And yay for a return of a song from the movies, Adventuring!

The plot was pretty good too. I think traveling to see the gysers is cute and a believeable thing for the kids to do. Petrie's character remains a little over the top, but I can live with it. He's cute.  :P: Plus he mentioned Uncle Pterano! Yay!

My only problem is that in this episode they made the Mysterious Beyond into some normal place that isn't mysterious at all. Firstly, they never show how the kids got out there. It's supposed to be blocked off from the Valley, isn't it? Secondly, the kids never once mention that the adults don't want them to go out there or ask the adults permission, and from what we've seen of the movies we know that is true. We never see the adults in this episode at all, so we don't know their reaction. The episode ends before the kids really return home, so we don't see the kids getting in trouble for being out there.

So is the series going to make the Mysterious Beyond just another setting for the kids to go to and have adventures? Time will tell, I suppose!

Do you think the mention of Pterano could be hinting at a possible guest appearance of him? (presumably NOT played by Michael York.)

Hurrah for a Pterano mention! And Redclaw (I remember someone saying he had a scar over his eye. It actually went down to his claws. o_o; Jeez, what bit him?)! Did anyone else think the JP1 Velociraptor noises he made sometimes were a bit too high-pitched for a T. Rex? Where were his dromaeosaur buddies? Greatly animated episode, by the way. Okay songs, I liked the tribal, Africanish music. I don't care much for Ruby, though - she seems like a character that was added in just 'because.'

When the gang ran away from the fire...did anyone else think the animation was sped up? Never seen Spike or anyone else run so fast in all my life. Petrie was adorable in this episode, with his paranoia of bad luck. Cera's jumping-on-the-log-and-crushing-it was badass. :lol: I still want to see that Ankylosaur from the berry episode come back...and maybe a couple rogue Pachycephalosaurs...just for kicks.

You'd think they'd give him the voice of the JP1 T. rex. At least the LBT production team can get away with using Jurassic Park sounds, since JP and LBT come from the same company (I wonder if they'll stick in something from Peter Jackson's recent King Kong remake too?).

Somehow that sounds very appropriate for a prehistoric jungle.

I found interesting the innuendo to LBT 5, 6 and 7. Remember Chomper's Dad smelling Spike and saying "something that smells so bad can't taste that good  :D "
What about redclaw's scar, didn't it look an awful like Doc's? Not to mention the hole bad luck, quest to the mysterious beyond thing =P

I agree, this is without a doubt, the best one so far! Heh, I loved how panicked Petrie was about this bad luck thing :P:. And I laughed when Cera yelled "Stupid mud!" while they were slipping :lol

Haha, I was thinking the same thing :lol:

I hope not. The T. Rexes sounded exactly like pigs in King Kong. I was extremely disappointed. As for the scar and the bad luck and the smelly mud stuff, it did remind me of Land Before Time 6. I wished we could see Doc again, if only in the background, even though I honestly thing he was just a ghost or spirit, given the nature of how he left in the movie. As for the voice of the JP1 T. Rex for Redclaw, they did that most of the time, mainly that deep threatening growling instead of the full out famous roar. I like the "stupid mud!" line too. I'm beginning to wonder if there's any way to contact the creators of the series - I mean, I know some professionals, or whatever you wish to call them, actually respond to e-mails and such.

The raptors did make noises similar to the Terapusmordaxes from the King Kong game.

I don't think a sound from King Kong would necessarily be bad, so long as it's a roar (like that of a V. rex or Kong) instead of a noise of one of the "smaller" monsters.

Indeed, this is the best ep thus far.  When was the last time fire appeared in the series?  Wasn't it LBT 3?  Why did they keep such a dangerous thing off for so long?  It's so great to use. :^.^:

Then we have a reference to LBT 5, Spike smelling bad.

Now, let me comment on the bad luck thing.  In LBT 6, didn't Petrie say, "Me no believe in bad luck."?  If you ask me, I guess something changed his mind. :D

A reference to Pterano.  We haven't seen that guy since LBT 7.  It would be nice to see him again.  However, he was banished for 5 cold times.  I'd say that at least 3 have passed since then.  Are we doomed to never see him again or will the gang run into him somewhere in the Mysterious Beyond?  Quite frankly, I'd love to see him again. :)

Ah!  The "Adventuring" song from LBT 10 makes a comeback.  Same deal with "Good Times, Good Friends" from Episode 4.  I'm beginning to wonder if "Bestest Friends" will come back.  IMO, it's the greatest LBT song ever made.  Maybe we'll get that when Ruby and Chomper leave by the end of the series. (Yes, I'm expecting them to leave by then and we'll be back to calling them "The Gang of Five".)

And we see Red Claw and his velociraptor minions attack the gang for the first time.  I'm seriously beginning to wonder what gave him such a cut myself.  In fact, I wonder if he's blind in that red eye of his. :) The only sad thing is that he was beaten by a bad smelling Spike.  Isn't it better to have one of the grownups beat them up or have the gang pumbell them with rocks and such? :lol: This sort of defeat made him look weak if you ask me, and that's just sad.  He's supposed to be the main villian of the TV Series. -_- Then again, I would want to stay away from a bad smell myself, so I can't blame him too much. <_<

Well, might as well get working on those songs.  This will actually be easy this time around, based on the fact that they're referenced to earlier songs. :)

So if you're reading this, expect them later today, Action. :^.^:

As I relistend to the songs, I noticed how Spike got quite the role in them.  I don't think I've heard him hum so much since "Bad Luck" in LBT 6.  He's quite the "hummer"! :lol:

Oh, and I decided to watch Spike tumbling into the "stinky poll" again just for laughs.  And I noticed something.  He actually said "shit" right before he landed in the "stinky poll".

Now, if none of you agree, I won't blame you based on the fact that it's hard to hear.  You have to listen VERY carefully to hear it. (You may only get "shi" at most.)

I can't believe Universal did this!  In my knowledge of vulgar language, that's a pretty harsh word.  Do you think they're pushing the G rate with that in it?

Then again, I did see Disney get away with it in "The Proud Family" by covering up one of the charcters saying "Oh my god!" by having the rest say "Oh my gosh!" at the exact same time.  Amazing how, if you do it right, you can get away with it. :^.^:

I just listened to it, and it does indeed sound like he's saying that. But there's no way they could have intended this. Why would they? Especially when Spike has only said a select few words in the entire history of LBT. Why would they even think to make his next word utterly pointless and vulgar :blink:

I agree. I don't think it was intended to sound like sh*t.

And about how Redclaw got the cut, I thought that perhaps he got into a fight with another sharptooth, perhaps one of Chomper's parents, or another sharptooth. Perhaps in a fight, his opponent slashed him with one of their two-clawed hands, the same way Doc got his scar from the legendary sharptooth in LBT6.

I completely agree. Usually voice actors have to make a whole bunch of odd sounds for when their characters are being thrown around, tumbling, tripping, falling, etc. etc. It just happened that that noise sounds like a swear. I'm sure it was unintentional.

(Honestly, to me it sounds like he said "Ah-shoo!" like a sneeze. But I don't think he was really sneezing right there, I think it just sounds like it.)

Well, I saw it's US airing today, and it seems that the writer's caught this mistake.  They reedited it and so that it sounded like "ouchie"!  Nice move, Universal. :)

Yes, but we have the episode where it sounds like Spike has a foul mouth :D

I wonder if this is some sort of obscure fan thing that only people like us would know about or care about...

Not that I care about it very much...

does anyone know if and how littlefoot got the "ground prickely"  out of his foot?  I don't think they said he ever did.

Pterano would be RUINED if Michel York did not play him! Michel York became my favorite brit. actor because of him (he amuses in 3 Musketeers)

I've watched it over and over and I still don't see how he got it out of his foot.  I think they just forgot to put in an explanation of that. :rolleyes:
