The Gang of Five
It is quite fitting that the sweltering hot days of July arrive right when the gang confront the barrens of the Mysterious Beyond in the fifth film showcase.  It is almost like us admins planned it that way or something.  :bestsharptooth

This month in the Monthly Showcase we are featuring the Land Before Time V.  Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in that topic.  Additionally, there is a new fanfiction prompt challenge for the months of June July, please check out this topic for more information.

Yep, it is now your turn, Mr. Thicknose!  For the next month you have a captive audience for your lecture!

Enjoy everyone!



-------------------

In this topic please feel free to discuss Mr. Thicknose as a character, to share your own creations (fanfics or fanart) concerning him, or to mention some of your favorite fanworks of others involving him.  For a full set of rules please see the 2022 Monthly Character Showcase topic but keep in mind that this is meant to be fun as opposed to any sort of contest.

I will go ahead and get the discussion started with the following questions:

1.  How useful do you think Mr. Thicknose’s lectures are to the general education of the children?

2.  What life lessons do you think are showcased by Mr. Thicknose’s experiences in LBT VIII?

I think they are useful. While the truth us The Gang of Five knows more from exploring The Mysterious Beyond, Land of Mists, and etc; and they have made friends even with Sharpteeth, Chomper and his parents; Mr. Thicknose can educate them on what are the necessities of life and that they should keep exploring, and not waste their youthfulness.

Even though he is a side character, it's nice to acknowledge that he's not too bad.

 I can understand that the other folk don't like him all too much being that Thicknose fills the children's minds with disbelief. 

Even though I haven't watched the movie where he was first introduced, I can only say that he simply tells the kids about the wonders of life, along with teaching them on how to live to the best. It all ends to the children whether they want to believe him and take his advice or not.

There was lots of conflict between Mr Thicknose and Mr Threehorn. Being that there isn't much evidence for the things Mr Thicknose says, it makes sense how some of the dinos don't believe him. They just need to realize that he had lived longer. And if Mr Threehorn still won't listen, tell him to eat a rock.

1.  How useful do you think Mr. Thicknose’s lectures are to the general education of the children?

I'd say he probably has a lot of knowledge to hand from hearing so much over the years so he's probably pretty useful.


2.  What life lessons do you think are showcased by Mr. Thicknose’s experiences in LBT VIII?

I suppose Mr Thicknose shows that even though he might know a lot from hearing about things, knowledge goes hand-in-hand with experience. The kids may have had the experience when they went looking for Ducky and found the hot springs, but they also needed Mr Thicknose's knowledge to help them realise where they were in the Mysterious Beyond.

I like that he gets a bit more adventurous in the TV series such as when he went off to see Hidden Runner, and I always find the spats between him and Mr Threehorn rather amusing too.
