A very, very short video depicting what a certain bit of The Land Before Time II might have been like if it were more in line with the continuity established in the first movie.

The audio is from the movie. The animation is my own, using screenshots I took from the movie for loose reference. No, nothing was traced, but if you think the characters look on model enough to have been traced that's terrific.

I actually re-watched the first Land Before Time a couple weeks back, which I hadn't seen in about... 17 years? What really caught me off guard as an adult, however, is realizing that a couple days after Cera was saved by Littlefoot's mom, she referred to her as, "just a stupid Longneck" when arguing with Littlefoot. That was rather uncouth as well and I realized that I didn't like Cera as much as I did when I was a kid.

But anyway, an amazingly faithful piece of animation. I like to pretend none of the sequels happened. It just seems like a bizarro-world of the first movie. Would've much appreciated a sequel that was truer to the source material and maybe chronicled their journeys to adulthood and continued survival.

I always wondered why the sequels always glossed over the actual trauma of the original film that these kids went through.

This should have been Littlefoot's reaction after every goddamn time someone says "Sharptooth" in the sequels.

I've always wondered about this scene. Losing your mom to a T-Rex is TRUAMATIC AS HELL! I'm surprised that Littlefoot doesn't break down every time someone talks about Sharpteeth

Why are there buildings in the background? Buildings happened after time.

I don't see any buildings. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough.

During the first couple seconds, in the very back. Littlefoot and Ducky are clearly playing in a city park.

Those are either mountains or they're buildings that melted.

I've been letting this sit in my messages box admiring the animation but not getting the actual humor behind the clip until now. I feel like a moron, but I laughed anyway.

I never realized how insensitive Ducky is...

But yeah, I like the animation. There's something about that droop that Ducky does at the end that seems characteristically Walstrom. I can't quite put my finger on it.

I wonder how many other people in the world spend any time contemplating the continuity of the Land Before Time movies.
