The Land Before Time – Littlefoot is Born

A bit of nostalgia for you. I just saw this sequence again after about twenty years. I was struck by how beautiful it is. The sequence was animated by John Pomeroy, who served as Littlefoot’s Directing Animator. John skillfully handled a baby meeting his mother and reacting to the bold new world around him. This tender moment is easily my favorite shot in the film, just ahead of the birth of Spike.
