Title: The Yellobellies
Post by: Amaranthine on October 25, 2008, 01:32:39 AM
I noticed there wasn't topic about these characters. I can understand why, they aren't very popular characters with too many people. However, I really don't think these characters are as bad as some people may label them as. Sure they can be annoying, but I think the least annoying one was, "Wise One".

I found the "Heimlich" scene to be hilarious, especially the Gang's faces :p  :lol.  However, I wonder how those Yellowbellies ever survived :blink:.

I thought they were annoying and goofy.  They're like the Ewoks of LBT except the Ewoks actually had a purpose.  I take it back.  They're more like Jar Jar Binks.

Awwwww.....poor Jar Jar. :( Put him with the yellow bellies.  At least he didn't initiate a horrendously annoying song right in the middle of the movie and turn the characters we know and love into laughing lunatics. :p

I've only seen them in the yellowbelly bounce song, not counting the sleeping yellowbellies in the how do you know song.  

They look like a silly bunch, In certain movies it would be ok.  But most lbt movies have been pretty serious, with some comedy.  It sounds like the 13th movie may be the other way around, lots of comedy with a bit of serious stuff now and then.  Which is a big departure from LBT.  Though I've not yet seen the 13th movie so can't say really.

I'd recommend you keep it that way.

The only song I liked from LBT 13 was "How Do You Know?" Ironically, the yellow-bellies slept through it.

The only good thing is I think the producers realized that the yellow bellies were a flop, because they never cameoed in a TV episode. For that I'm eternally grateful.

Also, a serious question: Are the Yellow-Bellies an actual species? Like one that scientists know about?

I've heard some speculate they are based on some dinosaurs called Beipiaosaurus.  

They were not the only ones not in a tv episode, the tiny sauruses were not either, but they were mentioned once in 1 episode.  The egg eaters from the 2nd movie were not either.

I'll reserve judgment on the 12 and 13th movies till I've seen them.

It does make sense with so many lbt movies that some may be more comedically focused then others, and that seems to be the trend, more comedy then serious scenes .
Title: The Yellobellies
Post by: Cancerian Tiger on November 14, 2008, 12:53:21 AM
They were certainly crude creatures, sticking their derrieres to the sky to disguise themselves as bushes :blink:.  Also, when one of them ripped a fart while poor Ducky and Petrie were still crushed beneath them.  I suppose Grosevnor and the new director thought it'd be funny to put a dino version of a "Dutch oven" in the film :rolleyes:  :slap.  And their appetites!  They eat so much it makes me want to vomit just thinking about it :x!  I absolutely love the LBT series, but I'm a bit afraid to see what may be in the (hopefully) next sequel :unsure:  :wacko:.

As I said I'll reserve judgment till I've seen it.  But if they changed directors I'm not surprised the feel changed.  Look at the lbt movies from 1-11.  They do not all have the same feel to them.

I like watching it, though I feel they have all the talking to lengthen the song perhaps.  & perhaps also it means less story script they need to write.
Title: The Yellobellies
Post by: Cancerian Tiger on November 20, 2008, 11:35:08 AM
Poor Jar Jar.  I thought he was a funny character, too :unsure:.

The fart mishap is not very loud.  Ya have to pay attention to hear it.  LBT 13 did not have the same feel some of the older ones.  In fact, I did not feel much of any suspense after the fifth one until the swimming sharptooth scene in LBT 9.  I like the comedy factor in 13, but they really need to rev up the suspense to where it used to be when they (hopefully) release future sequels.  I recall somewhere on the GOF that somebody (Malte?) had mentioned the idea of Cera being in peril would be interesting to see.  That would be, but it would also be interesting to see her save Littlefoot for a change (aside from pulling him up in LBT 12).  I would also love to see Tricia able to talk and mingle with the Gang, but I don't want the series to stray any further than it has.  I love LBT, but I sure do miss the feel of the older sequels.

More suspense could help to improve the story in spots. There could be other little things they could do to improve things here and there.

LBT 13 on the whole felt like a long Episode why I say that is because the animators didn't put so much emphasis on the movie if you know what I mean.  But it was a Great Movie though.

I hope I like it when I get the dvd eventually.  The same with 12.  They do look like a fun loving bunch based on the song video I have from the movie.

I know this is an old topic, but is it alright if I add something here?

Is it just me, or did anybody else get the impression the Yellow Bellies were under the influence? There's a theory that berries in prehistoric times contained a small percentage of alcohol, and mass consumption of them would sometimes cause certain creatures to become "drunk" (and often fall victim to predators as a result). When the Yellow Bellies came into the Great Valley, they seemed relatively sober compared to when they left, possibly because of expository dialogue such as this:

Littlefoot: How long's it been since you ate?
Loofah: Must've been...err...let's see...right before you guys showed up.
Doofah: But not berries. Berries are the best!

I guess the Yellow Bellies would've eaten those berries until they died of certain alcohol-related complications... :p

I disagree with what Rat-Lady said, they weren't annoying. I don't see how the could be, to me anyway, their what made the movie better than the other twelve, but that's just my opinion.

I also liked the Yellow Belly Dance song (fave song of all the movies).

I have not seen LBT13 yet, but from what I keep hearing, that movie was the worst LBT sequel and one of the reasons was because of the yellowbellies.
Title: The Yellobellies
Post by: Adder on July 19, 2010, 11:52:51 AM
I also remember someone say that they were a "crude" species of dinosaurs.

I'd have to partially agree, they do like sticking they behinds up in the air to act like a bush and to hide from predators (which surprisingly worked).

Plus, Doofah, for some reason always liked hugging the others, and all the other yellows bellies liked shaking the behinds for some reason. Don't believe me, well, here:

In regards to the yellowbelly dance picture: That was probably one of the most disturbing LBT pictures I've ever seen. No offense or anything, but I don't like the idea of seeing a bunch of dinosaurs wave their butts to the screen. On top of that I don't like butts shaking to the screen at all. Just not my thing.

If there's anything worse than getting crushed AND farted on by a Yellowbelly (poor Ducky and Petrie :p), it's a congregation of Yellowbellies mooning audiences with their fat, bloody arses :rolleyes.

BTW, ever been sat on by a morbidly obese person, and then they farted on ya?  All I can say is, I know exactly how poor Ducky and Petrie felt :p.

By the way, as far as LBT is concerned, what could've been more disturbing in LBT than this :unsure:?

Nope it had nothing to do with that. Had to do with sexual matters there. No horror film I know of comes close to this scene from LBT 13.

I accidentally didn't make sense in that post. What I mean to say is the that I did see something worse then that LBT 13 scene there months later after seeing the film. The thing I saw was on the internet and it was sexual.

These characters completely killed 13 for me. I almost lost my mind when they finally found their herd. Everything they do is unbearable to watch. I almost stopped watching when the fart joke happened.

At least Littlefoot did something for them.

Oh the yellowbellies. Thanks to them, I now have a grudge on Sandra Oh and refuse to watch Grey's Anatomy because she played Loofah in LBT 13. Yeah, I know. The grudge is stupid but I really don't care. Maybe I'll forgive her, maybe not.
Foobie seemed the least annoying. And when they said he was the wise one, I fell out of my chair.
I watched the movie two times in all my life, I don't really plan to watch it again. It was awful. They could've done alot better.

Post by: Littlefoot1616 on January 08, 2011, 10:05:57 AM
Probably gonna end up a pariah after saying this but here goes anyway. I didn't find the yellowbellies all that bad *ducks and flinches*. Granted it wasn't the most intellectual of plots but I found their "antics" as a little more light-hearted and goofy humour rather than a dumbing down. The morals where still in place and it didn't warp the main cast in any way (I felt anyway). I'll admit that this obviously won't go down as the pinnicle of Cuba Gooding Jnr or Sandra Oh's acting careers but I felt they played the parts well enough to bring the dappy nature of their ways across. I've not no major gripes with LBT 13 (as I know most do) but I guess that's just the liberal streak in me (that meant in general and not as a political stature btw :p).

Oh yeah, and Foobie being the wise one? (Spoiler alert....whoops! Too late! :DD :p) The second the idea of a "Wise One" was mentioned, I'd figured it. Although, on first hearing his name, I thought Doofah called him a "boobie". Had to rewind that part and re-listen to that bit thinking "Did she really just say that?!"  :lol

Well ever thought that maybe she didn't enjoy doing that part? Not all actors and voice actors are really proud of the kind of work they did. And yeah I do think it's pretty silly to hold a grudge against her all because she voiced a yellowbelly. Why does it matter that much? It's just a movie, after all. No need to get all upset about it. It's not like she killed someone or committed some other horrible crime. No, all she did was voice a character. That's not that big of a deal.

I used to view these characters with blind hatred, but now I've taken a step back to look at them again and really think about them, and I have a new outlook on them. I don't hate them as much as I thought I did. I'm explaining more in the topic about the movie itself, as I have a few things to point out myself.

I guess your right.  :(  

I'm sorry for my words, I wasn't thinking and I wasn't in the right state of mind for posting that. Now that I look back on the movie, the Yellowbellies weren't all that bad, they were amusing enough. I've taken back my grudge against Sandra Oh, she is a very talented actor, and I'll admit, she did do a pretty good job at playing Loofah. I've given up on hating this movie, because I know, it was bad, but it was amusingly stupid and I'll admit, some parts were funny. But it still was pretty...strange.

I've only seen them in the yellowbelly bounce song, not counting the sleeping yellowbellies in the how do you know song.  

They look like a silly bunch, In certain movies it would be ok.  But most lbt movies have been pretty serious, with some comedy.  It sounds like the 13th movie may be the other way around, lots of comedy with a bit of serious stuff now and then.  Which is a big departure from LBT.  Though I've not yet seen the 13th movie so can't say really.
Precisely. All of the other LBT movies had at least some degree of seriousness, which is rare enough in a direct-to-video movie. from 2 to 6, they were hand-drawn and inked, so they would have a bit more of a pastelle and darker tone, though not as dark as the original. Then with 7 and onwards, they brightened up and the colours got a bit more vivid as they moved to computer animating, but they kept most of the seriousness. Number 11 was pushing it a little bit, what with the huge chunks of comic relief, like the adults' attempts at searching, and the final fight with the sharpteeth which definitely had a few traces of slapstick, but still kept a more melancholy tone than the 13th one. I'd say the 13th one was when they jumped the proverbial shark.


But yeah... these yellowbellies. I just look at their designs, and I automatically know that they'll be like Jar Jar Binks; obnoxious, never serious and serving no purpose but comic relief.
Come to think of it, I've never actually read a good plot synopsis for the 13th film. Exactly what is the plot?

Well I may have to agree with one thing that I admit I have never actually read a good plot synopsis for the 13th film. I think this is the plot.

        Littlefoot made a poor choice to cross the log to get more treestars and he nearly fell in the cliff. Littlefoot's grandma saves him the log fell in but his grandma managed to make it out.
He had a bad dream about Littlefoot's grandma falling to her death in the cliff and his grandma told him all about the wise wisdoms.

The nexted morning Littlefoot and his friends meet the Yellow Bellies Loofah, Doofah and Foobie. clumsy, silly and stuff. and they told them that they are meeting up with there herd to go find Berry Valley.

They helped them out, when Littlefoot had a nightmare of them falling off the log, and decided to teach them about wisdoms, while on their journey.
but in the end Littlefoot finds out that wisdoms appear in different ways.


Now I may be wrong about it. but that's what I know so far  ;)

Okay, so I finally managed to find a way to watch this one without having to pay for it, and here is my overall review:

Overall, it's not as bad as I expected. Granted, compared to pretty much all the other LBT sequels, this one is probably the worst, but not by as much as I imagined. From what I had heard, I was imagining it to be absolutely unwatchable (The kind of bad ovie you get on Mystery Science Theatre or Cinematic Titanic). But up till the Yellowbellies entered, it was okay. I'll admit they weren't as annoying as I expected (Iwas expecting the to be on par with Jar Jar Binks or any Rob Schneider character) , but their designs were still pretty bizarre. They look like no dinosaur I'VE ever seen!
The plot was pretty bog-standard material. No serious twist, no extremely dramatic moments, even the battle against the Baryonyx wasn't very entertaining. Also, the ending didn't really have that nice feel the other endings had, which ranged from IX's and X's undiluted shmalz, IV's charming flashback montage, heck even XI had that nice little camera rotation thing. But this one...nothing. The just..go home, and that's it.

Honestly, I think the only really redeemable factor of this film are the first and last song. Say So was pretty fun stuff, and I kinda like the way it segued into the next scene, and How Do You Know had a nice ring to it, especially the harmonising at the end. But to me, the message of How Do You Know seemed a bit confused. Was it telling us to trust our heart or listen to our elders or what?

So in conclusion: Pretty bad, definitely the worst of the series, but if you can find some way to watch it for free and skip through much of it, you may as well.

EDIT: After watching a couple more times, I do have a few more things to say:  "Say So" would have been good if the segue INto the song was any good. But it just seems a bit too sudden.
Being a fan of rather immature humour (slapstick more than anything), I did find their antics kinda funny. But the belly-bouncing thing really didn't help. It just seemed wayyyyyy to weird. I think that if they just made the Yellow-bellies look fat (as opposed to now, where they look pregnant), and maybe toned down their enormous butts, they might be redeemable characters.
And having finally plucked up the steel to listen all the way through "Yellow Belly Bounce", I am kind of amazed at how catchy and fun I think it is. Granted, it basically serves nothing for the plot, but it's just a big, dumb, fun catchy little song, plus, apart from the dance-number in the middle with Spike and Foobie, the animation was pretty good too. That's basically how the LBT songs work for me. If they have a good rhythm to them, good vocals (especially if they harmonise) and good instrumentals, it will quickly become popular with me. The message usually is second in terms of importance.

@LittleDas75 Same. XD I find their antics to be enjoyable (Except Doofah  :rolleye). They are fun and full of positive energy. I guess that is why they are my favorite dinosaur in the series. Even my first Land Before Time OC is a Yellowbelly. XD I actually hope they will appear again in the franchise one day.

Whoops! I mean Doofah. XD Their names are similar. It's just one scene where she puts herself in danger and acts so oblivious, with her dangeling from a cliff smiling. I found it to be forced and silly.  :PCera

Also what do you think of their fart joke? That's the one thing that I would think Yellow Belly lovers would dislike.

 I love this fart joke.:P The best part was definitely Petrie's line. Its the way he delivers it that gets me, he sounds so annoyed. :lol I mean I would get annoyed too if I was farted on while being sat on but still. I also love the fart itself, mostly because its unexpected and I love unexpected humor. :PCera
