I'm surprised there wasn't a topic on here for him. He's my favorite sequel guest. He has a lot of funny moments; and like I said in another post, he and Petrie make a great duo.

Post thoughts here.

I've only seen him in the tv episode, The Hermit Of Black Rock.  Not sure how different he is shown in that as apposed to the 12th movie.  I do like the character and he does seem interesting.  Though odd how in the episode he seems about the same age as the gang, but doesn't hang out or play with them.

I thought Guido was an adult.

Guido = Like me.. I love him. The fact that he wants brothers and sisters around and the fact that he is 'different'. I do have two younger brothers, but somehow they dont feel like brothers to me.

It's like guido is my little brother :^.^: . Or big one, though he looks kind of small :p

Guido seems to be older than the gang members, that's for sure. But he's a kind of a person, who must likely to talk to children, because serious adults won't understand his intentions at all.

What indications (except for the absence of parents) do we have for Guido to be considerably older than the gang? His physical proportions (large head etc.) don't make him look very much like an adult, do they?

I don't know about the 12th movie, but it was during the episode of The Hermit Of Blackrock where he learns to Glide, from Petrie teaching him.  I would assume an adult glider would already know how to glide.

Well, if he could even remember anything about his past, that means, he have some problems with memory. I guess, that is why he don't remember how to glide either.
Malte279, i haven't said, taht Guido is an adult. He's just a little older then the gang. And his loss of skills and memory making him feeling quite unsure. Usually, children taking such things easily then teens and a little older youngsters. :)

Guido is a microraptor gui. These are very small dinosaurs. So it could be that Guido is an adult. His kind does not get very big. Only about 1-2 ft long.

The same goes for Petrie's species as well if you compare his mother's dimensions with that of other grownups. It may be possible that Guido is older than the gang, but I don't think we can be certain about this. His proportions don't make him look like a fully grown character (his head being almost as large as his torso):

It takes the 12th movie to understand WHY Guido wouldn't know how to glide.  He just showed up in the valley, only knowing his name.  He didn't know where he came from or anything.  I'm kind of surprised he even remembered his name, usually cases of memory loss even involve the victim forgetting their name as well.

Whatever happened to him, Guido was sure lucky to remember that. :)

As for your comment, Malte... isn't just about every charcter off in one way or another?  I seriously doubt Pteradons had transparent wings. ;)

Knowing how to glide is a different memory then facts which are different then personal facts.  I've had amnesia twice and I could remember some facts, but nothing to do with personal facts nor memories.

I am certainly not an expert in these medical matters, but I think it is quite possible (even likely) that people suffering from a serious amnesia may have forgotten a lot about their own identity but not such physical motions as are required for example to walk or ride a bike.

I don't quite understand this comment. I suppose that it is quite possible to recognize some shapes or the like through the wings of a flyer in case of favorable lighting, but what does that have to do with Guido's proportions being not that of a grownup character?

I think what he means is that in LBT7, the fliers hade transparent wings and that they probably weren't like that in real life.  As for guido's age, I always thought he was a teenager or something.  I think he is older than the gang but not an adult yet.

I don't know about others, but I've had amnesia twice and both times I only lost access to my personal memories and personal facts.  Any physical skill I had I could still do, walk, talk ect, and generic facts, I knew a tv when I saw one, a carpet ect.

So based on my personal experiences I doubt he'd forget how to glide, there there may be some rare brain conditions that may explain how, I doubt the writers of the script were planning on that since I would doubt they call up brain scientists to ask if there is a condition that can cause x.

I'm not sure if Guido ever really forgot how to glide. He might have forgotten that he could glide, but he didn't forget how to. I mean he does glide in his sleep and I doubt he'd be able to do that if he never learned how to glie.

As I recall in the episode Petrie has to teach him.  He learned fast, but in a 25 minute episode which was not focused on Guido learning to glide but focused on another plot he needed to learn quickly or else the plot of the episode could not happen.
