This is another "one-sided" poll. :)
Honestly, the TV series Ali is the biggest waste of character in the Land Before Time franchise. Another waste is that Guido, being an interesting character he is, appears only in one movie and one TV episode. Same with Mo.

Yeah, I carried on with the trend and voted for the original Ali. The Ali from the TV series just sucked. She was so gullible and they really dumbed her down. :(

I gonna follow the trend and vote for LBT 4 aka original Ali because the Ali we were shown in the TV-series isn't Ali. Heck, whoever that purple girl is it even has a different colour  <_< Though it didn't stopped me liking the ep in which Ali appeared (Big Longneck Scheme?).

The movie version of Ali was a lot better than the T.V. Series. In the movie she was more developed and had a good personality even tho at the begging of the move she didn't like the other different dinosaur types. But she got way better as time went on. The T.V. series she went way down hill and became annoying and turned into a character at the time I liked into a character that I hated. Her personality on the show was annoying and god awful.

Only recently have I begun watching the TV series episodes. I watched four episodes today, one of them was "The Brave Longneck Scheme" and...well, you can guess my vote for this poll, for the same reasons everyone else stated.

Yeah, it's quite obvious that the makers of the Tv-series haven't watched LBT 4 :DD :P:

Seriously, I mean the change in character isn't that bad because it's reasonable in my opinion. Rhett has changed Ali, that's a thing that is quite possible to happen. But come on... judging Ali's outward appearance, it could be a completely different girl...

Original Ali by a wide margin.  As Ducky stated I can see Ali being changed somewhat by the influence of Rhett, but come on, the new Ali of the series lacked all of the distinct character traits of the Ali from the fourth film.  Its like the producers gave Ali a prefrontal lobotomy and removed most of her personality prior to the episode.


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Menders Tale.

Like any of us were going to vote for that abomination from the series.

I was wondering which you guys thought was better, Michael Jordan's basketball career or his baseball career?

Yeah this poll is about as lopsided as a poll on the question would be...

Wait a minute!  Someone voted for the Ali of the TV series?   :blink:

Yep, it does look like someone voted for that abomination.

I went with tradition and chose original Ali.

I definitely choose the Ali from Journey Through The Mists. I felt it wasn't right for the writers to drastically change her personality in the TV series. Her personality was fine in the movie; they should have kept her that way.

Original all the way. Everyone else's reasons are pretty much mine, too. The original Ali was cute, but the series Ali...I can say I've never been more disappointed in a character brought back from another part of a media tha  I was with Ali...I don't plan on watching that episode again...

I don't think I need to say which Ali I voted for. Maybe whoever voted for Ali from the series mistakenly clicked the wrong radio button or something. I would've labeled them more clearly (i.e. Ali from LBT 4 and Ali from the TV series or something like that)
I am not dead, but LBT and dinosaurs have been ruined for me, so I may not be back here as an active member in the foreseeable future. Best wishes to you all.

I never actually saw a difference, but I just chose the original Ali anyway for nostalgia's sake.

By the way, who in the world picked the TV series Ali?!

The LBT IV Ali I like far more than “The Great Logneck Scheme,” Ali. She had much more growth, going from exclusive to inclusive; “It takes all sorts.” The problem is in her return, she is essentially enslaved to herself prior to enlightenment, Rhett only wants to play with her, just as she only wanted to play with Littlefoot. Why after her realization did she not sing to Rhett, “It takes all sorts,”?! This to me is character continuity problem.
