Well, I believe my brother was the first one to own most of the video tapes of the films, and since he was 9 when I was born, he passed them down to me, as he wasn't that interested in them any more. I really enjoyed the first one, and from there my interest in dinosaurs grew. I couldn't stop watching The Land Before Time or it's sequels for most of my childhood. :lol

I saw the movie when i was 5 or something. This movie arouse my interest in dinosaurs and I had a HUGE collection of dinosaur figures.

I believe that i watched this with my mother, it has been long since that so i cant remember so well.

My life would have been much different without this masterpiece of movie.

Well honestly the 4th one was the first I ever saw,I got it for $1 at a video  rental store that was closing down.

I loved it,so my parents ordered the rest.


When I saw the 1st one,I was shocked at how dark it was compare the others. But it a way it owns the others.

It also answered my questions why Littlefoot had no Mother present. Why the swimmers had Spike etc.

I know I’m posting in an old thread, but I started getting attracted to this film after getting interested in dinosaurs in History.  That’s when I watched Jurassic Park, which led me to watching this movie.

And thanks to researching dinosaurs, that’s when I started watching this movie! :smile

Well, I guess I loved and still love dinosaurs and cartoons very much. And film's story and characters were attractive as well.

For me it was the simplicity of their world. No bills, no electricity or technology, no buildings or vehicles or clothing or nations or wars... just nature, fire, predators, natural disasters. Other animal-oriented franchises do that, but they're usually set during humantimes and that stuff still finds its way in somehow. It's nice to get away from all that and appreciate a setting where modern life hasn't yet evolved in any possible fashion.

Well, firstly, it was the fact that I had already seen LBT II and LBT III before watching this movie, so I knew that this movie would feature characters I was already familiar with. There was also the fact that I knew it would be the origin story of their friendship, so that was definitely a lure for me.
