Everyone has watched Land Before Time..right? Well if not allow me to tell you about it and why I enjoy watching them so much. It is part of a 14 movie series and it follows the adventures of five friends going through life together. I enjoy watching the friendship pan out since they are all different types of dinosaurs who were always taught that they don't interact with those who aren't like them.
The movies follow Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie, and Spike. They become friends after they have to try and get to their families after an earthquake separates them from their families. In the beginning, Littlefoot and Cera are the first two to head to The Great Valley together, Littlefoot got the directions from his mother. His mother died after she saved Littlefoot and Cera from getting attacked by a sharp tooth, then the earthquake happened.
On their way to the Great Valley, Littlefoot and Cera met the others along the way. They first met Ducky while Littlefoot was laying at the water where she was swimming, then it was Petrie, and finally, it was Spike. The unlikely group had to work together to find their way along with trusting that Littlefoot actually knew where he was going. He was using what his mother told him before she passed and he kept hearing her help him along the way.
They finally made it to The Great Valley and were finally reunited with their families. However, for Spike, it was different he was "adopted" into Ducky's family. Littlefoot was reunited with his grandparents, Cera with her father and siblings, and Petrie with his mom and siblings. Together they made it home and they would continue to help each other as well as help the others in the tough times.
My favorite part about all of it is the fact they are different. Growing up watching these movies taught me that it's okay to be friends with those who are different from you and I feel that it helped me make the friends I did and continue to have in my life. For them, they were always told by their parents from a young age that they don't associate themselves with those who aren't part of their kind. Cera's father was the one who was constantly telling her that "three-horns don't hang out with longnecks" and although she was taught this she was always with Littlefoot and the others.
I also enjoy hearing the songs they sing that is associated with what adventure they were on at the time. I enjoy watching them grow and learn with each other as time went on, they were always there for each other and were always ready to help anyone who needed it. At one time they "raised" a baby sharp tooth who later turned into their friend and helped them from his parents.
Although they were different they didn't let that or anyone else stop them from being friends. They enjoyed their time together and would sometimes go behind the adults' backs to hang out. Mostly it was Cera who went behind her dad's back and they ran away once because they thought they were going to get separated and they didn't want to not be friends anymore.
