Land Before Time

December 29, 2006 at 9:30 am 11 comments

For reasons that I cannot comprehend, the nineties was about movies that involved dinosaurs. The 1991 tearjerker is about dinosaurs on the brink of extinction. I first encountered the movie in a film showing back in kindergarten. It was disheartening for a child to see an orphaned baby dinosaur separated from his grandparents. The song, “If We Hold On Together”, served as icing on the cake.


If you think you were made of stone before the movie, chances are, you’ll be molten rock at the end. After hearing, “Don’t lose your way/With each passing day/You’ve come so far/Don’t throw it away”, you’ll be struggling to keep your cheeks dry and your nose less runny.

    Oh my gosh!!!! I sooo love Land Before time.. i always cry everytime I watch this movie, especially when I hear the music if we hold on together. It’s such a beautiful song! I forgot the main character’s name.. I only remember Peetree..I think that’s the small flying dino.

    Haha this movie made my sister and cousins cry everytime we watched it! My sister even used to sing the theme song all the time! I actually thought there really was a GREAT VALLEY. Cartoons back then were more interesting compared to nowadays. It’s all anime now and that stupid Spongebob!

    Agreed! Anyone who doesn’t cry due to this movie has no heart! Lol. This was my all time favorite movie when I was four. Though, my mom never wanted me to watch it because I cried to it every single time that I had watched it! She told me I was too emotional, but I just knew what was up! Lol

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
