The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure The Land Before Time IV: Journey Through the Mists
The Time of the Great Giving - DVD cover
  • [first lines]
  • Narrator: A long time ago, at least 3,500 million years ago, the earliest form of life, made its first appearance on earth. These single-celled creatures developed and grew, and changed a million times over.
  • [the fish swims, then swimming up, looking at the water]
  • Narrator: Until at last, there was a creature able to leave the sea, and to crawl out into an unknown world.
  • [the creature gets out of the water, sniffing, then he continues walking, then diving in]
  • Narrator: From this small, fish-like creature, came hundreds of other animals.
  • [they all run by]
  • Narrator: The mightiest of which was called, the dinosaur!
  • [they dinosaur growls, then they walk by]
  • Narrator: For most of the earth's dinosaurs, life was filled with danger. But for the fortunate leaf-eating dinosaurs of the Great Valley, life was peaceful, and food plentiful. The Great Valley was the perfect place for children, like Littlefoot, the long neck, Cera, the three-horn, Ducky, the swimmer, Petrie, the flyer, and Spike, the spike-tail, to grow and learn and play.
  • Littlefoot: I got it!
  • Petrie: Now me got it! [tries to kick a rock]
  • Ducky: Go, Spike!
  • [Spike and Ducky land on a rock]
  • Ducky: Did you get it, Spike? Did you, huh?
  • [Spike gets up]
  • Ducky: [repeated line, giggling] Yep, yep, yep! You got it!
  • Cera: I found another one! I found another one! [laughing]
  • [Littlefoot runs to get the rock, then Mutt stops it with his foot, then looking at Hyp, Nod, and Mutt]
  • Littlefoot: Hi, Hyp. Can we have our rock back, please?
  • Hyp: Your rock? Who said it was your rock?
  • Nod: Yeah, who said it was your rock, huh? Who said? Who said?
  • Mutt: Oh! Ah, yeah!
  • Littlefoot: Well, gee, no one. We were just playing with it.
  • Cera: So give it back, Hyp.
  • Hyp: But I didn't hear you say please!
  • Cera: That's because I didn't! [growls at Hyp, then they growl]
  • Littlefoot: Hey, maybe we can all play together!
  • Petrie: Good idea, Littlefoot. We all play!
  • Ducky: [repeated line] Yep, yep, yep. The more the "betterer"!
  • [Spike nods]
  • Hyp: What do you think, guys? Want to play with these babies?
  • Cera: Babies? Who's he calling babies?
  • Ducky: Us?
  • Petrie: Hmph! Me no baby! [inhales] Me big!
  • Hyp: Yeah, a big baby!
  • Petrie: [exhales, then they all laugh] Me no like them.
  • Cera: Me neither. I'll show 'em!
  • Littlefoot: Cera!
  • Cera: I'm busy. [run in a bush by Hyp, Nod, and Mutt]
  • Mutt: Nyah! Nyah!
  • Hyp: Try and get us! Yeah, yeah, try!
  • [Cera walks by Hyp, Nod, and Mutt, then they hear a rumble]
  • Mutt: Whoa! What's that? It's a-a-a...
  • Cera: "Earthshake"! [screaming]
  • Petrie: Rocks fly?
  • Hyp: Flying rocks! [screaming]
  • [the fire comets continue falling down, explosion, then they all scream, then they run away, with a rock falling down]
  • Cera: Daddy!
  • Ducky: Mama!
  • Littlefoot: Grandma! Grandpa!
  • [the rocks continue falling down]
  • Mother Quezalcoatlus: Fly, children! Fly!
  • [they all fly away]
  • Iguanadon: Run!
  • Grandma: Littlefoot!
  • [Littlefoot pants, then they all gasp]
  • Grandpa: Look out!
  • [the tree lands]
  • Grandma: Littlefoot!
  • Littlefoot: I'm in here, Grandma.
  • Grandma: [to Littlefoot] Are you all right, little one?
  • Grandpa: Would you like to come out now?
  • Littlefoot: Gee, that wasn't a regular kinda "earthshake," was it?
  • Grandpa: No, Littlefoot, it wasn't.
  • Littlefoot: Then what kind was it?
  • Grandma: We don't know, Littlefoot. Perhaps it had to do with those great rocks falling from the sky.
  • Littlefoot" Oh, yeah! I saw 'em! And I saw that big one land somewhere in the Mysterious Beyond. I sure wish we could go find it.
  • Grandpa: Yes, that would be an adventure, now wouldn't it?
  • Grandma: Well, I think we've had enough adventure for one day. Come. It's time to settle down for the night. [walks away]
  • Littlefoot: It's beautiful, isn't it, Grandpa?
  • Grandpa: Oh, yes, Littlefoot, beautiful and mysterious, as is so much in our world. Well, at least the danger has passed.
  • [cut to the dinosaurs by the water, with Littlefoot walking by in the water, looking at the fish, swimming away, laughing]
  • Ducky's Mom: What? Look, everyone! Where did the water go?
  • Stegosaurus: It stopped flowing!
  • Male Dinosaur 1: How can that be?
  • Male Dinosaur 2: What will we do without water?
  • Littlefoot: Grandpa, why did the Thundering Falls stop?
  • Grandpa: I don't know, Littlefoot. I don't know.
  • Grandma: Littlefoot, go and play. Grandpa and I must talk with the other grown-ups.
  • Littlefoot: Sure, Grandma. [walks away] See ya later, Grandpa.
  • Male Dinosaur 3: This has never happened before!
  • [they all chatter]
  • Littlefoot: Hey, guys!
  • [Ducky gets in the hole]
  • Littlefoot: Guess what happened to the Thundering Falls.
  • Ducky: Shh! We are trying to find Cera. She has "hided" from us.
  • Littlefoot: But...
  • Petrie: Uh! Me no find Cera anywhere!
  • Littlefoot: Guess what, Petrie?
  • Petrie: What? You no find Cera either?
  • Ducky: Cera is a very good hider. She is!
  • Cera: [peeks out] Boo!
  • [they both gasp, then Ducky falls down, then Petrie flies away]
  • Cera: I scared you! I scared you! I did!
  • Petrie: You no scared me, Cera. Me "unscare-able."
  • Littlefoot: Petrie? You're hurting my nose.
  • Petrie: Oh, sorry. Me no know my own strength. [flies off of Littlefoot]
  • Cera: Now who's going to hide? Littlefoot?
  • Littlefoot: Okay, but first I wanna tell you something.
  • Cera: Well, hurry it up! We wanna play!
  • Littlefoot: I saw...
  • [Spike walks away]
  • Littlefoot: Hey!
  • Ducky: [giggling] Spike is taking your turn for you, Littlefoot.
  • [they all laugh, then Spike continues walking, eating grass]
  • Ducky: [laughing, pointing at Spike] My brother is not a very good hider. Oh, no!
  • Cera: Now just what were going to say, Littlefoot?
  • Littlefoot: It's the Thundering Falls. It's not giving us any water. You gotta come see.
  • [they all walk down]
  • Hyp: Why don't you hatchlings go run and see.
  • Nod: Yeah, run and see. Run and see!
  • [Hyp grins at Mutt]
  • Mutt: Oh. Bah, yeah!
  • Cera: Try and make us!
  • Ducky: No, Cera, no!
  • Cera: Oh, don't worry. I won't hurt 'em much! [sticks tongue out, then Nod sticks tongue out]
  • Hyp: Put those away.
  • Littlefoot: How come all you ever wanna do is fight, Hyp?
  • Petrie: Yeah! Fight! [the rock fights Petrie, then falling down on Littlefoot] Ow! Fighting hurt.
  • Mutt: Yeah, it does give ya "ow-ees," Hyp. Why do we do it?
  • Hyp: Why? Why? Because we're bigger. And bigger is smarter! Bigger is meaner! And bigger is better!
  • ["When You're Big" begins]
  • Hyp: [singing] When you're big, you can push all the little ones around. They're lookin' up while you are looking down. You can snap a tree in two like it was just a twig. Things are better when you're big.
  • All: [singing] When you're big.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can do anything you want to do.
  • Mutt: [singing] Wah-oh.
  • Hyp: [singing] All the rules that grownups make, they don't apply to you.
  • Both: [singing] Not to you.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can splash in all the puddles, gulp, slurp, and swig.
  • Both: [singing] Oh, wah.
  • Hyp: [singing] The world is better when you're big.
  • Both: [singing] Glug, glug, glug.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can snort.
  • Both: [singing] You can snort.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can growl.
  • Both: [singing] You can growl.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can stomp.
  • Both: [singing] You can stomp.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can howl.
  • Both: [singing] You can howl.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can bonk someone smaller on the head.
  • Both: [singing] On the head. [scat]
  • Hyp: [singing] You can take what you want, play all day in the swamp. And you never ever have to go to bed.
  • All: [singing] When you're big.
  • Hyp: [singing] You can step on little people's toes.
  • Both: [singing] Oh, wah.
  • 'Hyp: [singing] Munch on their lunch.
  • Nod: [singing] Lunch.
  • Hyp: [singing] And bop them in the nose.
  • Both: [singing] Oh, yeah.
  • Hyp: [singing] Threehorns, and longnecks, and duck feet, too.
  • Both: [singing] Duck feet, too.
  • Hyp: [singing] They all have to do anything you want them to.
  • Both: [singing] You want them to.
  • Hyp: [singing] And if they don't, you can plop them...
  • All: [singing] ...in the goo!
  • Hyp: [singing] Don't you forget.
  • [Mutt growls at Littlefoot]
  • Hyp: [singing] What you want, you get.
  • [Nod growls at Cera]
  • Hyp: [singing] Things are better when you're big.
  • Both: [singing] Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la.
  • Hyp: [singing] When you're big.
  • Both: [singing] Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la.
  • Hyp: [singing] When you're big.
  • Both: [singing] Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la.
  • Hyp: [singing] When you're big!
  • Littlefoot: But, Hyp, when you're all grown up, you won't be very big at all.
  • Cera: Yeah, your kind never gets very big. When we grow up, we'll be much bigger!
  • Ducky: Uh-huh, uh-huh, much, much, much, much bigger!
  • Hyp: Oh, yeah? Well, I'm gonna see to it that you never grow up.
  • Mutt: Ah, yeah!
  • Nod: Never grow up! Never!
  • Mutt: Ah, how are ya gonna do that, Hyp?
  • Hyp: Sheesh, you're dumb. Let me lay it out for you. First, we chase 'em. Second, we catch 'em. Third, we hurt 'em! See?
  • Mutt: Ah, no, Hyp. I don't see anybody.
  • Nod: Me neither.
  • Hyp: What? Ugh! Come on! We'll pound 'em later.
  • [they all walk down, then Spike hides in a bush, eating a leaf, then blowing wind away]
  • Grandpa: As you can all see, our valley is quickly drying up.
  • Stegosaurus: Yes, we see it and feel it as well. There is less and less water to drink!
  • Iguanadon: And green food to eat!
  • Grandpa: I know. That is why our herds must work together, to save the little water we have left. From now on, we must drink only what we need to survive and no more. Hopefully soon, the Thundering Falls will bring us water again. If not, we may have to leave the Great Valley.
  • Ducky's Mom: Leave the Great Valley?
  • Iguanadon: Never! It's our home.
  • Grandpa: Then until the water returns, we must not use the water we have left unwisely.
  • Cera's Dad: Hmph! Three-horns never use water unwisely, but your herds do.
  • Kosh: Our herds? What makes you think our herds would do such a thing?
  • Cera's Dad: You drink greedily with no concern for other.
  • Stegosaurus: Can you believe he's saying that?
  • [they all chatter]
  • Kosh: Well, I've seen three-horn's waste!
  • Cera's Dad: What?
  • Kosh: You take long baths even if you're the least bit dirty! And I've seen your kind waste too. Splashing water needlessly. For shame!
  • Iguanadon: Impossible! I never did such a thing!
  • [they all chatter, then Cera runs on a water, laughing, then they both play in the water, then getting out]
  • Cera: Hey, let's play bullies. I'll be Hyp. [imitates Hyp, jumping to get Littlefoot] I'm gonna get you!
  • Littlefoot: [imitates Mutt] Not if I get you first!
  • [she gasps, then laughs, then they both run to Spike, and Petrie]
  • Petrie: Me wanna play bullies too! [imitates Nod] Hey, hatchling! You no eat my green food!
  • [Spike squirts at Petrie, spitting out, laughing]
  • Petrie: Hmph! Me go play bullies someplace else! Yeow! [falls in the water]
  • Ducky: Petrie, you are a flyer, not a swimmer. [laughing]
  • Petrie: Me no bully either. [sighing]
  • Hyp: But I am!
  • [they all look at Hyp, Nod, and Mutt]
  • Littlefoot: Aww!
  • Cera: Not again.
  • Ducky: Oh, no, no, no, no, no!
  • Petrie: It them.
  • Hyp: Though you hatchlings could play in our swimming hole, huh?
  • Cera: They're beginning to get on my nerves.
  • Nod: Can we teach 'em a lesson, Hyp? Can we, huh?
  • Hyp: Be my guest, Nod! [pushes Nod, splashing in the water, screaming, then they gasp]
  • Littlefoot: Run!
  • [they all run away, then Nod lands on the water, with Littlefoot ducking, then splashing at Cera's Dad, then they all laugh, then Nod runs away]
  • Mutt: See ya!
  • Hyp: Wouldn't wanna be ya!
  • [Littlefoot shakes the water off]
  • Cera's Dad: This is not funny. Now someone splahed me and wasted precious water!
  • Littlefoot: Huh?
  • Ducky: [to Littlefoot] Littlefoot, are you all right?
  • Littlefoot: Uh-huh. But I think I'm in trouble.
  • Cera's Dad: Your Littlefoot is guilty of wasting water.
  • Grandpa: What happened, Littlefoot?
  • Littlefoot: It was an accident, Granpda. Honest.
  • Grandpa: I'm sure it was, Littlefoot. Our children don't understand the water problem. The Great Valley has always given them everything they need.
  • Cera: What are the grown-ups talking about? What water problem? Isn't the Thundering Falls coming back?
  • Littlefoot: I don't know.
  • Cera: Well, it should. Why wouldn't it?
  • Ducky: Maybe it is tired and needs to rest.
  • [Littlefoot puts his feet up]
  • Grandpa: We need to teach our children how to use the remaining water wisely.
  • Cera's Dad: Speak for yourself, long neck! My Cera would never waste. Your Littlefoot is a bad influence.
  • Grandpa: That's not true!
  • Ducky: What is influence?
  • Petrie: Me no know.
  • Cera's Dad: Come, Cera. You're not to play with the little longneck anymore.
  • Cera: But, Daddy!
  • Grandpa: My friend, I think you're acting rashly. Littlefoot is not to blame.
  • Cera's Dad: Hmph! I said come, Cera!
  • Cera: No! [runs around]
  • Cera's Dad: Cera, I'm your father, and I know what's best for you.
  • [Cera walks by Cera's Dad, then they walk away]
  • Petrie's Mom: Petrie! It's time to go home!
  • Petrie: Oh, bye-bye. Coming, mama! [flies by Petrie's Mom]
  • Ducky's Mom: Come, Ducky. Spike, you too.
  • Ducky: Do not worry, Littlefoot. You are not an influence, whatever that is.
  • [they all walk down]
  • Littlefoot: I don't understand, Grandpa. Why does Cera's dad think I'm bad?
  • Grandpa: Oh, he's just confused, Littlefoot. Sometimes fear makes grown-ups do strange things.
  • Cera: I don't understand, Daddy!
  • Cera's Dad: You need friends who know how to behave, especially in times like this.
  • Cera: Littlefoot is my friend! He'll always be my friend!
  • Cera's Dad: Cera, I'm your father. I want what's best for you.
  • Cera: No, you don't! You just don't want me to have any fun! [runs away]
  • Cera's Dad: Cera, please. I'm just trying to... Oh, as a parent, I... [groaning]
  • [the grandparents walk by Littlefoot]
  • Grandma: Time to wake up, my little one.
  • Littlefoot: But, Grandma, it's early and I'm still sleepy.
  • Grandpa: You must get up, Littlefoot, if you want to drink the morning dew with us.
  • Littlefoot: The morning dew?
  • Grandpa: Yes. It collects on the leaves in the early morning. [pushes Littlefoot] If we hurry, we can drink the dew, before the bright circle gets too high in the sky and dries it all up.
  • Littlefoot: Oh. [yawning] All right. [walks down]
  • Grandpa: [takes a tree star to Littlefoot] Here, Littlefoot, drink this. I think you'll find it delicious.
  • Littlefoot: [slurps, then taking a bite of a tree star] Oops. It-It broke.
  • Grandma: It's not your fault, Littlefoot. The treestars are very dry now and crumble easily.
  • Littlefoot: [sighs] But when will everything be green and wet again, Grandma?
  • Grandma: I don't know. I hope soon.
  • [they both walk down]
  • Littlefoot: Well, what's going to happen if it's not soon?
  • Grandpa: Water will get harder and harder to find. Soon, everything will be as dry as that treestar.
  • Grandma: And it will be easier for fires to start.
  • Littlefoot: Fire?
  • Grandma: Yes, Littlefoot. Which is why you must remember the escape paths we've shown you.
  • Littlefoot: Don't worry, Grandma. I'll remember.
  • [the fish swim in the water, jumping out of the water, then jumping back in, swimming, then they all walk down, then the lizard climbs up, with the rock falling down in the water]
  • Grandma: I think we're in luck. There are still quite a few green treestars left here.
  • Grandpa: Come on, then. Let's eat!
  • Littlefoot: Yeah, let's eat! [runs by the tree, sniffing at the leaves] These don't look too good, but I sure am hungry. [tries to takes the leaves, then blowing away]
  • [Grandma and Grandpa take the tree stars to Littlefoot, eating]
  • Littlefoot: [spitting out] Uh! They taste terrible!
  • Grandpa: [looks at the tree] Here, Littlefoot, try these. They're still very green. [takes a branch to Littlefoot]
  • Littlefoot: Thanks, Grandpa.
  • Grandma: Go on, Littlefoot, eat up.
  • Littlefoot: But... But what about you? Don't you want some?
  • Grandma: Thank you, Littlefoot. But Grandpa and I will be fine.
  • Grandpa: Yes, you're still growing. You need the very best green food we can find.
  • Littlefoot: Well, okay. [takes a leaf, eating, then eating another one] That was good, but I sure am thirsty. When is it our turn for water?
  • Grandma: Our turn for water is when the bright circle touches the smoking mountain.
  • Grandpa: But if you're thirsty, I think you can have a drink now. After all, we never agreed that the children should have the same water restrictions as the elders.
  • Littlefoot: Oh, boy! Water!
  • Cera's Dad: It's not your time to drink, long necks!
  • Grandpa: What do you mean, not our time?
  • Cera's Dad: We agreed that all herds must take turns drinking at the watering hole.
  • Grandpa: Yes, we all agreed, but I didn't think that it included the children. It really isn't fair to them.
  • Cera's Dad: There is no fair when it comes to survival!
  • ["Standing Tough" begins, then Kosh drinks water]
  • Cera's Dad: [singing] When life is tough, you gotta be tougher. If you wanna stay alive, when the trail gets rough, you gotta get rougher. To help your family survive, you can run around in circles. Wondering what to do, someone's gotta be the voice of reason. Is it you, or you, or you? When things around us are going bad, we all better be strong. We could lose everything we have, if this goes on too long. Don't stand around here talking! I say that's not enough. No tears, no sighs, don't close your eyes. We gotta stand tough. I used to hear my father say, "Stand and fight, don't run away." He made me what I am today. I'm here. And I'm tough. When times are hard, you better be harder. You don't know what's in store. You think you're smart? You gotta be smarter than you ever were before. You say I'm mean, you say why bother? Well, I have a daughter and I'm her father. I'm gonna make sure we all have water enough, that's why I'm tough. I'm standing tough! We've got to stand tough! You don't like it? Tough.
  • [they both walk away, then Littlefoot looks in the water]
  • Cera: Littlefoot!
  • Littlefoot: Huh?
  • Cera: Over here! Hurry!
  • 'Grandpa: You judge us wrongly, three-horn.
  • Cera's Dad: I'm only doing what needs to be done.
  • Grandma: But this is going too far.
  • Cera: Oh! What are we gonna do about the grown-ups, Littlefoot? They're acting like babies!
  • Littlefoot: I know.
  • Cera: And it's all the Thundering Falls' fault too! If we had more water, this wouldn't be happening.
  • Littlefoot: That's it, Cera!
  • Cera: What's it?
  • Littlefoot: Water! If we find some, the grown-ups will stop being mad.
  • Cera: Maybe. Except for my dad. He's always mad.
  • Littlefoot: Yeah, he is kind of grumpy. But I'm sure it's just because he's so worried about the water.
  • Cera: Yeah. Anyway, let's go get Petrie, Ducky and Spike and find some water!
  • [they both run down]
  • Grandpa: How about a compromise?
  • Cera's Dad: No! We must be firm.
  • Grandma: Can't we agree on anything.
  • [they both look at Petrie and Ducky]
  • Littlefoot: Are we all here?
  • Ducky: [repeated line] Yep, yep, yep. We are all here. Oh, no, we are not! Where's Spike?
  • Cera: Well, don't ask me. He's not my brother.
  • Ducky: Oh, Spike! Where are you, little brother? [hears Spike snoring]
  • Petrie: What that? It sound like monster!
  • Ducky: Do not worry, Petrie. That is not a monster. That is Spike.
  • Petrie: Spike?
  • Ducky: That is his sleeping sounds. Come on, I will show you.
  • [Spike continues snoring]
  • Ducky: See! [laughing]
  • Littlefoot: [laughing] You're right, Ducky.
  • Ducky: [pushes Spike] Get up, silly. This is not nap time. This is get up time.
  • [Spike pushes Ducky]
  • Petrie: [opens Spike's eye] You wake up now, okay, Spike? [falls down]
  • [Spike yawns, the he continues snoring]
  • Petrie: Oh, Spike, up!
  • [Spike hugs Petrie]
  • Petrie: Spike, down.
  • Ducky: Spike, no! [grabs Petrie out, flying down to Littlefoot]
  • Littlefoot: Are you okay, Petrie?
  • Petrie: Uh-huh. Spike sure heavy sleeper. [falls down, flies by Spike, snoring]
  • Littlefoot: We gotta wake him up because it's gonna take all of us to find more water.
  • Petrie: Water? Yes! Me help find water.
  • [Spike licks Petrie]
  • Petrie: Spike, stop! Me no find water yet! [shakes the water off]
  • Littlefoot: Don't worry, Spike. We'll find it. I just know we will.
  • Cera: We better! BecUse if our parents stay mad any longer, I'm just gonna scream!
  • Ducky: [laughing] Oh, I will scream too!
  • Petrie: Petrie good screamer! [imitates screaming]
  • Littlefoot: [laughs] What about you, Spike?
  • [Spike snorts, then they all laugh and run, then they all walk]
  • Petrie: How we find water, Littlefoot?
  • Littlefoot: We smell for it, silly.
  • Ducky: [laughing] Oh, yes! Smell for it! With our noses. [laughing] I know how to do that. [sniffing]
  • [Littlefoot sniffs, then Petrie flies around, then they continue sniffing, then Spike sniffs by Petrie]
  • Petrie: No smell so hard, okay, Spike?
  • [they all sniff, then Ducky laughs]
  • Cera: This is serious, Ducky.
  • Ducky: Oh, yes, Cera, I know! I know.
  • [they continue walking down, then the water melts the tree star, then blowing away, with the Stegosaurus looking around, walking down, taking a drink, then Cera's Dad runs by the Stegosaurus]
  • Cera's Dad: It's not your turn! [growls at the Stegosaurus, running away] Now, go on!
  • [the Stegosaurus walks away, then stamping on the ground]
  • Ducky: My sniffer is very, very sniffed out.
  • Cera: Well, I'm so thirsty I could drink a lake.
  • Littlefoot: Me too. If we could find one.
  • Petrie: [sniffing] Funny, me smell water, but me no see water.
  • [the fish jumps in the water, then gasping]
  • Littlefoot: Hey, did you hear a... a splash?
  • All: Uh-huh.
  • Littlefoot: Water! There it is! All right!
  • Ducky: Yeah! Yeah!
  • [they all jump in the water, then Ducky spits water out, then laying down, then Cera takes a drink]
  • Cera: That was so good!
  • Ducky: [takes a drink] Oh, yes, this is the yummiest water ever! It is!
  • Petrie: And we drink all we want, and no one yell at us! [takes a drink, then falling in]
  • [they all laugh, then Petrie gets out]
  • Hyp: There they are. And would ya look at what they found for us.
  • [Nod laughs]
  • Mutt: [laughing] What is it?
  • Hyp: Hey, hatchlings. Say bye-bye, water.
  • Ducky: Why? Is it going somewhere?
  • Hyp: No, but you are!
  • Nod: This is our water now!
  • Mutt: So give it back.
  • Petrie: Give back? But it already in my tummy!
  • Ducky: But do you not want to share?
  • Hyp: We don't share with anybody, do we?
  • Mutt: Uh, no, uh-huh.
  • Nod: Nobody.
  • Hyp: So I'm warning you, small fries, if you tell anybody else about this water, you'll be very, very sorry!
  • Littlefoot: We're telling! And you better not try and stop us!
  • [they all run away, screaming]
  • Littlefoot: Hurry!
  • [they continue running away]
  • Hyp: Get 'em! We can't let 'em tell!
  • Cera: What am I running for? I'm not afraid of those... Hey, what's the big idea?
  • Petrie: No time to fight bullies, Cera! We go tell grown-ups about water.
  • Nod: Where'd they go, Hyp? Huh? Where'd they go?
  • Hyp: If I knew, I wouldn't be lookin' for 'em.
  • Nod: Yeah!
  • Mutt: Yeah, dummy!
  • [the dragonfly pops out of a flower]
  • All: Uh-oh!
  • [they all run away, screaming]
  • Littlefoot: Keep running!
  • Cera: Are they still after us?
  • Petrie: Me no know. Me too scared to look!
  • [they all run on the branch, then Spike slides down]
  • Ducky: Spike, you're going the wrong way!
  • [Spike lands on the ground, then Ducky lands on Spike]
  • Ducky: Hurray! Now you are going the right way.
  • [they all continue running]
  • Cera: Why are going this way anyway, Littlefoot? We're tired and this way is hard!
  • Littlefoot: Because, this is the shortest way back to the grown-ups. And it will be harder for the bullies to follow us.
  • [they continue running down, then breaking a branch, screaming, then Spike falls down, then Ducky falls down, then they all fall down, then they all walk down, gasping]
  • Ducky: It is the Mysterious Beyond!
  • Petrie: And it has water. Whole bunches!
  • Littlefoot: The flying rocks must've caused slides in the Mysterious Beyond too.
  • Cera: Yeah, and those dumb slides blocked up the water!
  • Littlefoot: Come on! The grown-ups will know what to do!
  • [they all go inside, then blowing the wind, holding on Cera]
  • Petrie: Bad weather for flying.
  • [the wind continues blowing, then the thunder hits the tree, then they all scream, putting on fire]
  • Littlefoot: Look out!
  • [the fire branch lands on the ground, then they all gasp]
  • Littlefoot: Back this way! I know another path.
  • [they all run away by the fire, screaming, then they jump down, then putting fire on rocks and tree, falling down, then they continue running away, screaming, then Ducky's Mom drinks water]
  • Cera's Dad: That's enough. You've had your share for today.
  • Grandpa: The three-horn is getting far too bossy.
  • Grandma: I agree.
  • Littlefoot: Grandpa! Grandma!
  • Cera: Daddy!
  • Littlefoot: Fire! There's fire in the valley!
  • Grandpa: Are you sure, Littlefoot?
  • Littlefoot: Yes, Grandpa! It's near two boulder pass!
  • Grandpa: Yes, we can see the fire signs from here.
  • Clubtail: Two boulder pass?
  • Kosh: That's close to here.
  • Clubtail: We must run!
  • Grandpa: Calm yourselves! We will lead you to safety.
  • Cera's Dad: No, I will. They'll be better off following me. [walks down] This way!
  • Grandpa: But you're heading downwind where the fire will surely spread. We must go upwind of the fire.
  • Cera's Dad: Do as you will, long neck. But Cera and I go this way. Come, Cera.
  • Cera: But, Daddy!
  • Cera's Dad: The other can do what they want. But you are my daughter, and you will do as I say! [walks away]
  • Cera: I'm... I'm... I'm going with my father. [walks down by Cera's Dad]
  • Ducky: I do not feel good about this. Oh, no, I do not.
  • Littlefoot: Grandma! Grandpa! Can't you stop them?
  • Grandpa: I have to go after them.
  • Grandma: Yes. Littlefoot, you come with me. We'll lead the others to safety.
  • Littlefoot: But what about everybody else in the valley, Grandma? What will happen to them?
  • Grandma: They'll use the escape routes closest to them. Now come! Everyone, follow me! Children first!
  • [they all run down, then they pant, gasping, then screaming, with the smoke coming in, putting fire on the fern, then they pant, gasping, then screaming, jumping over, falling down, screaming]
  • Cera's Dad: Cera! [jumps down, moving the rocks, then they run down, putting logs on fire down, then they cough by the smoke]
  • Littlefoot: Grandma, what's wrong?
  • Grandma: The smoke is too thick. You'll have to lead.
  • Littlefoot: But I...
  • [they all look at Littlefoot and Grandma]
  • Littlefoot: Follow me, everyone! [runs down]
  • [they all run down, coughing]
  • Dinosaur 1: [coughing] Where is he?
  • Dinosaur 2: I can't see!
  • [Ducky walks to Littlefoot]
  • Ducky: Littlefoot, the grown-ups cannot see good. They cannot.
  • Littlefoot: But they can hear. Follow my voice! Stay close to the one in front of you! Keep your heads down! It's not much further!
  • [they both run down, then they jump over, then they continue running down, gasping, then screaming]
  • Cera: Are you sure this is right, daddy?
  • Cera's Dad: Of course I'm sure!
  • [they both run to a fire]
  • Cera: [screaming] Daddy!
  • Cera's Dad: This way, Cera!
  • [Cera screams by a fire]
  • Cera's Dad: No!
  • [they both run away, then the tree lands down by Cera's Dad and Cera, screaming]
  • Cera: We're trapped!
  • Grandpa: Three-horns! Over here! [pushes a branch by the fire, then they run on a branch]
  • Cera's Dad: Hurry, Cera!
  • [they all walk down, then Grandpa jumps over a branch, then they all run away by the fire]
  • Cera's Dad: Are you all right, Cera?
  • Cera: [panting] Yes, Daddy.
  • Cera's Dad: Come.
  • [they all walk down]
  • Littlefoot: Grandpa!
  • Grandma: Oh, you made it! I was so worried.
  • Grandpa: I'm fine, dear, really.
  • [they both hug]
  • Grandpa: How is everyone else?
  • Grandma: Our group got here safely, thanks to Littlefoot.
  • Ducky: Oh, yes! Thanks to Littlefoot!
  • Grandma: We are all very lucky.
  • Cera's Dad Lucky? How can you say we are lucky when our valley burns? We are without water, and now we are without a home. All is lost.
  • Grandma: All is not lost, my friend. You still have Cera. And you are still here, able to take care for her.
  • Cera's Dad: Well, you are right. Thank you, long neck.
  • [Grandma nods]
  • Stegosaurus: But the three-horn speaks the truth!
  • Ducky's Mom: We're doomed!
  • Clubtail: We'll never be able to go back to the Great Valley!
  • Ducky: Never go back to the Great Valley? Oh, no!
  • Littlefoot: The water! We forgot to tell them about the water! Grandma! Grandpa! We found water!
  • Grandpa: Water?
  • Grandma: Where, Littlefoot?
  • Littlefoot: It's stuck.
  • Petrie: Behind the Thundering Falls.
  • Cera: The flying rocks did it.
  • Ducky: They did!
  • Grandma: Which means the wated is trapped in the Mysterious Beyond.
  • Stegosaurus: [gasping] The Mysterious Beyond? We can't go there. It's dangerous!
  • Cera's Dad: Of course it's dangerous. But no place is safe now. We must go and free the water.
  • Grandpa: But such a huge gathering place of water will attract other creatures besides ourselves. In the Mysterious Beyond there will be Sharpteeth.
  • Dinosaur 3: Sharpteeth!
  • Dinosaur 4: [gasping] It's too dangerous!
  • Ducky: I do not like Sharpteeth. Oh, no! Their teeth are too sharp.
  • Grandma: Still, we must do something. We must come up with a plan to free the water.
  • Cera's Dad: I have a plan!
  • Kosh: I hope it's better than your fire escape plan.
  • [he growls at Kosh]
  • Grandma: Please! This is no time to argue.
  • Cera's Dad: At least I had a plan.
  • [Kosh growls at Cera's Dad]
  • Grandma: Stop! You're acting like children!
  • Petrie: Huh! We no act like that!
  • [they all argue]
  • Dinosaur 5: I have a plan too!
  • Dinosaur 6: Mine's better!
  • Hyp: I'd sure like to get to that water first, before the rest of those dummies go slobbering in it!
  • Nod: [gulping] But you heard the grown-ups, Hyp. What about Sharpteeth?
  • Hyp: What about 'em?
  • Nod: Well, you tell him, Mutt.
  • Mutt: Huh? Well, uh, well, uh, they're bad, uh, yeah! And scary too! [to Hyp] Come on! You're just as afraid of them as we are!
  • Hyp: [grabs Mutt] Me? I'm not afraid of anything!
  • Nod: But you are!
  • Hyp: Bet I'm not!
  • Nod: You were afraid of those big flying rocks!
  • Hyp: I was not! I just ran 'cause you guys did. I... I didn't want you to feel stupid.
  • Nod: Well, then prove it!
  • Hyp: All right, I will. I'm getting me some tasty water, and you babies can stay here.
  • Nod: Well, I'm not a baby.
  • Mutt: Yeah, me neither.
  • Nod: Uh... Uh, Hyp! Wait!
  • Mutt: Uh, yeah! For us!
  • Cera's Dad: We must act now!
  • Grandpa: We must not act rashly.
  • Cera: They are so dumb! Didn't they hear what the grown-ups said about Sharpteeth?
  • Littlefoot: I guess not.
  • Cera: Well, if they get eaten, it'll just serve them right!
  • Ducky: Cera! That is not nice!
  • Cera: I don't care. They deserve it!
  • Littlefoot: I don't know, you guys. Maybe we should do something.
  • Cera: Like what?
  • Littlefoot: Like, tell their parents where they went?
  • Cera: All of our parents are too busy arguing.
  • Grandpa: Your plan is too dangerous!
  • Cera's Dad: Yours is no better!
  • Kosh: Then listen to mine.
  • Dinosaur: Yours? Don't be silly!
  • Littlefoot: Then, maybe we should go stop them.
  • Cera: Stop them?
  • Petrie: Us?
  • Ducky: They hate us! They will not listen!
  • Littlefoot: I know they're bigger.
  • Cera: But definitely not smarter!
  • Littlefoot: Still, we have to try.
  • Petrie: But why?
  • ["Kids Like Us" begins]
  • Littlefoot: [singing] They have feelings just like we do. They have problems too. We think because they're big, they don't, but they do. They're louder and they're stronger, and they make a bigger fuss. But way down deep inside I think. They're kids like us. They have parents just like ours who teel them what to do, they have feet and tails and horns, and scales and noses too. And when the earth is shaking, they run and hide because even if they think they're tough. They're still kids like us.
  • Cera: It's just too dangerous, Littlefoot!
  • Ducky: Yes, it is!
  • Cera: And they're too mean!
  • Petrie: Very, very mean!
  • Littlefoot: [singing] Maybe when you're bigger, you think you should pretend you're not afraid of scary things that you don't need a friend. But they're just kids in trouble. They need someone to trust if we can bring them home, show them they're not alone, that they're just kids.
  • All: [singing] Kids like us.
  • Littlefoot: I just have to try and stop them! You guys do what you want. [runs away]
  • Spike: Hyp.
  • Cera: Last one after Littlefoot's a scaredy-egg!
  • Petrie: Me no scaredy-egg!
  • Ducky: Wait for us! We're not scaredy-eggs, either!
  • [cut to Hyp, Nod, and Mutt, walking down by the skeleton bones]
  • Nod: Are you sure this is the right way to the water, Hyp?
  • Hyp: Sure, I'm sure. I'm, uh, just taking us this special way, so we don't run into any stupid Sharpteeth.
  • Mutt: [lands between the bones, gasping, then muttering] Wait for me!
  • [they all walk up]
  • Mutt: Come on, guys! Wait! [puts one foot on the rock, walking up]
  • Hyp: Stop whining, Mutt! This is easy! [jumps on another platform, putting one foot on] Well, what do ya know! A little watering hole just for me!
  • [Mutt grabs Nod]
  • Hyp: You guys can have some, if I leave any! [jumps down, walking by the water] Whoo-hoo! Water! [drinks water] Huh? I'm sinking! I'm sinking! Don't just stand there! Pull me out!
  • Mutt: Oh, yeah!
  • Nod: Uh, right! What do we do?
  • Mutt: I don't know. What do ya think we should do?
  • Hyp: Somebody do something! Help! Help!
  • Littlefoot: That's Hyp!
  • [they all run down]
  • Hyp: Get me out! Get me out!
  • Nod: You pull him out!
  • Mutt: What if I get stuck?
  • Nod: I'll pull you out.
  • Mutt: What if you get stuck?
  • Littlefoot: He's stuck in a tar pit! Stop moving, Hyp! It'll make you sink faster!
  • [Hyp stops moving]
  • Littlefoot: We'll have to pull him out! Everybody line up!
  • [the bee lands on Hyp]
  • Petrie: Okay, when me say pull, pull!
  • [they all try to get Hyp out of the water]
  • Hyp: Hey! You're squishing me! Sorry.
  • Petrie: [lets Hyp go] Uh-oh! [dives in the water]
  • Ducky: Petrie! Pull!
  • [they all help get Hyp out of the water]
  • Nod: [to Hyp] Are ya... Are ya okay, Hyp? Are ya?
  • Hyp: Of course I'm okay! I was never not okay!
  • Petrie: He a big, fat fibber!
  • Cera: Yeah! We helped you, and you know it!
  • Hyp: I don't need anybody's help! Not now! Not ever!
  • Ducky: But everyone needs help sometime. They do.
  • Hyp: [walks down, screaming, then looking at the dinosaurs walking down, timidly] Help. [runs by Littlefoot, Cera, Spike, Ducky, and Petrie]
  • Cera's Dad: There they are!
  • Grandpa: Littlefoot? This is no time to go exploring! Didn't you realize you wandered into the Mysterious Beyond?
  • Littlefoot: We weren't exploring, Grandpa. We were trying to stop the bullies... Uh, I mean Hyp and his friends, or they might've gotten hurt.
  • Hyp's Father: Hyp! Here we are chasing after you, when we should be finding a way to free the water! I thought I told you to stay where it was safe! Don't look at me that way! I'm your father, and I know what's best for you!
  • Cera's Dad: Yelling is no way to teach your child what is right, or to show that you care.
  • Hyp: How would you know?
  • Cera's Dad: I know because... Because I have a daughter, and I yell at her, too much. Especially when I'm worried for her safety.
  • Cera: You don't have to worry about me, Daddy.
  • Cera's Dad: If you always react with anger, that's all your son will know, and that's all he'll be able to express to others.
  • Hyp: What?
  • Cera's Dad: I know now that we can't live together that way, with such anger between us. Our kids found water because they worked together. Now we must work together too.
  • Grandpa: At last we all agree.
  • [Mutt sniffles]
  • Hyp: Ahh! What's the matter with you?
  • Mutt: [crying] Nothin', except I think we're in trouble.
  • Hyp: Yeah, so what else is new?
  • Mutt: [pointing at Velociraptor] That!
  • [Velociraptor growls]
  • Mutt: And that!
  • [Velociraptor cotinues growling, then they all gasp, then landing on a ground]
  • Grandpa: Children, stay behind me!
  • Cera's Dad: And me.
  • Kosh: Count us in too.
  • Grandpa: [looks at all of the Velociraptor] Littlefoot! You and your friends run to safety!
  • [Velociraptor attacks Grandpa, then kicking Velociraptor, then flying up, sliding down, growling, then the rock lands on Velociraptor]
  • Hyp: Through here, kids! Follow me!
  • [they all run down, then Velociraptor jumps over, then Grandpa attacks Velociraptor, then they continue running down]
  • Littlefoot: Grandpa!
  • Hyp: Don't look back! Come on!
  • [they both run down, then the Velociraptors continue snarling]
  • Grandpa: We can't let them pass!
  • [Velociraptor hisses, then Mutt puts his hands on his head, then the Velociraptor continue running down by Mutt, twitching]
  • Cera's Dad: They've gone after the children!
  • [they all walk down, then they slide down]
  • Hyp's Father: Stay close! We're going to get help!
  • [they continue running down, hearing the Velociraptors snarling, then they all gasp, then the Velociraptors appear]
  • Cera's Dad: Stop where you are, Sharpteeth!
  • [the Velociraptors walk away]
  • Cera: They're leaving.
  • Hyp's Father: Yes, but why?
  • [the Velociraptors continue snarling]
  • Mutt: Something bad is happening up there.
  • [they both scream, running away]
  • Hyp: Stop, you babies!
  • [they both stop]
  • Hyp: [runs by Nod and Mutt] Me first!
  • Hyp's Father: Hyp!
  • [they hear a rumble]
  • Littlefoot: Look!
  • [the rocks continue rumbling, then they all fall down
  • Cera: Oh, no! Daddy!
  • Littlefoot: Grandpa!
  • [the Velociraptors get up]
  • Hyp's Father: You kids get to the top of that dam where it's safer!
  • Littlefoot: But what about the grown-ups?
  • Hyp's Farher: Just get out of here! I'll handle this.
  • [they all run away]
  • Cera: Come on!
  • [they all walk up, then Hyp runs by the Velociraptors, then Velociraptor chomps, then dodging, knocking their heads]
  • Nod: [laughing] Look at your dad, risking his neck.
  • Mutt: Yeah, what a dope.
  • Hyp: He is not! [runs down] Dad! [singing] Nah, nah, can't get me.
  • Hyp's Father: Son?
  • [Hyp glups, then screaming while running away by the Velociraptors, then Grandpa knocks the Velociraptors]
  • Littlefoot: The grown-ups are all right!
  • [they all cheer]
  • Hyp: I'm outta here! [walks up]
  • [the Velociraptors walk up, then Cera's Dad rams the Velociraptor, knocking at the rocks]
  • Petrie: That serve Sharptooth right. He bigger bully than you.
  • Hyp: Hey, watch it!
  • [the Velociraptors walk up]
  • Littlefoot: Come on! Let's get 'em with more rocks!
  • [they all push a rock]
  • Hyp: Are you nuts? By the time you budge that, those Sharpteeth will be picking their teeth with our bones!
  • Littlefoot: We've gotta try!
  • Hyp: [walks by the Velociraptors, then they continue pushing a rock] Move over, hatchlings!
  • [they all try to push a rock]
  • Hyp: This isn't gonna work!
  • Littlefoot: Hyp!
  • Cera: Oh, forget it, Littlefoot. He's a creep!
  • Hyp: Who you calling names? Now get in there and help, you creeps!
  • [they all help push a rock]
  • Hyp: Okay, everybody! Let's get 'em!
  • [they all push a rock, sliding to the Velociraptors, then they all cheer]
  • Littlefoot: We did it!
  • [the Velociraptors pop out of the rocks]
  • Grandpa: [to the Velociraptors] Leave our children alone!
  • Littlefoot: We've got to stop the fighting!
  • Cera: Then let's squish those Sharpteeth once and for all! [pushes a rock at the Velociraptors]
  • Littlefoot: Huh? Look! Water! We unblocked the water!
  • [they all run down, then the Velociraptors continue walking down, then the water flows]
  • Grandpa: Run!
  • [they all walk up, then the water kills the rocks, and the water kills the Velociraptors, rinsing the fire out]
  • Grandpa: Looks like you and your friends saved the day, Littlefoot.
  • Littlefoot: I think we all did, Grandpa.
  • [they all look at a river, then Spike licks Mutt, then Spike licks Nod]
  • Ducky: [giggling] Spike likes you now. He does.
  • Narrator: And so, with the return of the water, the Great Valley dinosaurs were able to go home again.
  • [they continue walking down]
  • Narrator: But the home they returned to wasn't the same. Fire had destroyed much of their green food.
  • [they all look at the branches being destroyed by fire]
  • Narrator: But instead of giving in to despair, the dinosaurs divided into groups to find the spots where green food still grew.
  • [they all fly in the sky, then they take the branches to Cera's Dad]
  • Littlefoot: Hey, everybody! We found more!
  • Hyp's Father: Did you hear that? More green food!
  • Kosh: How wonderful!
  • Hyp's Father: Where? I mean... [clears throat] Where, son?
  • Hyp: In a little canyon not far from here, Pop. If we share, there should be enough for everyone.
  • Nod: You feelin' okay, Hyp? You're talkin' about sharing!
  • Mutt: Uh, yeah, sharing!
  • Hyp: I know that! Not sharing is for scaredy-eggs! Right?
  • Both: Right.
  • [they all laugh]
  • Ducky: Sharing is good. [repeated line] Yep, yep, yep!
  • [Spike licks Ducky, giggling, then hugging Spike]
  • Littlefoot: Come on! Everybody follow us!
  • [last lines]
  • Narrator: And so, as it turned out, the dinosaurs traveled from green spot to green spot, eating their fill, each helping the others to find what they needed, each learning the special kind of joy, which comes from giving to others.
  • [Hyp takes a tree star to Nod, then taking a tree star to Cera, then taking a tree star to Ducky, then taking a tree star to Petrie, then taking a tree star to Spike, eating, then they all laugh]
  • Narrator: And in the years to come, this story of sharing was told over and over again, until it became known as: "The time of the great giving."
  • [Littlefoot looks at a water, then they all walk to a water]
