How do you feel about a LBT where the main idea is some sort of love relation between Littlefoot and Ali?

In a way that's exactly what happened in the land before time IV. I don't think that just "friendship" desribes the relationship between Ali and Littlefoot. Otherwise there would be no difference between the "friendship" between Littlefoot and Ali, or Littlefoot and Mo, or Littlefoot and Cera, Ducky, Petrie, Spike etc.
Personally I like the idea of the romance between Littlefoot and Ali.
However, they are both still kids and their kind of love is different from the love between grownups. In Germany this would be called a "sandbox-love", a love between kids without any sexual ulterior motive. This love is very frequent, and maybe one could even impute a less intense variant of this kind of love to Cera (notice she gets ALWAYS jealous if Littlefoot is fond of anybody or at least expresses her dislike of whomever Littlefoot is fond of).
I do not think that Littlefoot and the others even know about sexuality thus far (e.g. the talk about Babies between Littlefoot and his grandparents in LBT 2, or the fact that Littlefoot was not aware that he has a dad in LBT 10), and they probably would have to grow up to develop that kind of maturity. As I'm a strict opponent of the idea of letting the LBT characters grow up I also have to oppose the idea of a relationship that goes beyond that "sandbox-love" described above.
They are certainly going to keep any sexual content out of the land before time. Although I am somewhat surprised at how many parents are absolutely intolerant about their kids watching anything that has to do with sexuality while they have no problem with their kids watching horrible violent movies, I guess I suport the idea of not going beyond that "sandbox-love".
There are land before time fans who thought a lot about an actual sexual relationship between LBT characters, especially Ali and Littlefoot. I know that they wrote fanfictions, and drew pictures of this. Many of these fans are frequent writers in forums and they just take part in discussions like everyone. This is perfectly fine with me. So long they don't put their stuff up in public forums (thus enforcing that stuff on people who don't want to look at it) that are not created for that kind of stuff I do not object anything that is their private business.

Yeah, when I was looking for lbt stuff on http://search.msn.com (just a little publicity here (kidding)) I found this lbt fanfiction where a guy wrote about Littlefoot having sex with Cera. Personally I don't like those things cause it's sort of moking with lbt... Anyway, I guess it would be cool if universal explored that sandbox - love between Ali and Littlefoot maybe with some other longneck characters getting involved and causing troubles between the "couple", maybe that would interest some a bit older kids to watch it.

Shorty from LBT 10 perhaps. In my oppinion he is the most interesting new character from LBT 10, though they could've done so much more about him.

I haven't seen that one yet \: Is he a mail long neck? Maybe they could make him get interested in Ali and then Littlefoot would get jeoulous (too much sopie like but I think it can work)

I've seen that Littlefoot/Cera sex story before.  :o   And it wasn't just Cera that got it either....

I'm not sure that such a thing would be a good idea.  I mean, I know us older members may like it to bring some drama to the series but would a little kid who the show is meant for actually understand the topic of the "birds and the bees"?  It's not so much the fact that parents may not like it, but would the children understand that they would be partners for life like their mothers and fathers are (hopefully)?  

I guess they could maintain a good relations friendship between the two characters.

Yeah... I guess you're right, but maybe they could start to do some LBT series targeted for teenagers, still doing the one's for the kids... I think they could still mantain the magic and get it more interesting

It's almost pointless to even think about that, as they simply won't start such a land before time series aimed at teenagers. No way they are going to do that. Even if they did, I'm quite sure I for my part wouldn't like it. The changes that have been done to the series in some of the resent sequels were bad enough.
Actually there are story elements in LBT that are not exactly aimed at little kids only. It's just that they don't put much emphasis on such elements (like the dead of a whole herd that followed Pterano, or allusions which are certainly meant to give older people who watch the movies a smile, like in case of that talk between Littlefoot and his grandparents in LBT 2).
I would DEFINITELY NOT appreciate anything like that Littlefoot and Cera story. As I said, sort of pointless to speculate about something that will certainly not happen.

I'm pretty sure you won't see THAT in any upcoming LBT story. :P

I am reactivating this topic. I always had the feeling that there was something between the two. (I have the ability to feel this love) in fact if you look at the way Ali looks at littlefoot you'll understand this like I do. they were made for each other.

I'd say all the hints were there that they certainly liked each other....certainly is a shortage of apatosaurs in the valley for Littlefoot.  :P:  Whether or not any of this means anything down the road is anyone's guess.  We're thinking of it in human terms too....not all animals feel the same attraction for one another outside of continuing the species....

There is something there clearly,although whether otr not it gets developed later on in the series or Tv show remains to be seen.

I do think the Ali/Littlefoot pairing is cute. Hmm...Malte, what did you mean by "sandbox-love" in your earlier posts?

Darkhou, 'sand-box' is the German equivalent of 'ppuppy-love" which is usually used to describe the first crush  a person experiences.

...which usually differs from the adults' perception of love.

Even though LBT IV showed the start of a relationship between Littlefoot and Ali, it could be more developed in a sequel.
