the land before time vii

Okay but seriously the seventh Land Before Time movie was the best of the post-5 sequels and don’t even pretend it wasn’t

I mean

PTERANO

HE IS THE BEST OF THE SEQUEL CHARACTERS BETTER THAN ALI EVEN HE HAS A TRAGIC VILLAIN BACKSTORY AND IS FLAWED AND A FALLEN-HERO-ANTI-HERO-WELL-INTENTIONED-EXTREMIST OH MY GOD HE’S SO COOL AND GOT HIS VOICE ACTOR NOMINATED FOR AN AWARD

Also there’s the implication that he was emotionally scarred to the point of boderline-ptsd which is absolutely incredible for an DTV animated sequel from 2000 I mean he like never talks about his fuckup and at one point has a legit flashback and it’s intense too you think Littlefoot watching his mom die was traumatic holy SHIT Pterano saw worse and actually was responsible for it

He’s hands down my favorite character in the whole series because he’s actually got depth and development and flaws because he genuinely wants what’s best for everyone but suffers from major narcissism and thinks he knows better than everyone and refuses to admit mistakes at first even though it’s implied those mistakes torment him inwardly and SO HELP YOU GOD DO NOT THREATEN THE CHILDREN ESPECIALLY PETRIE OR DUCKY HE WILL OPEN A GODDAMN CAN 

And then there’s THESE ASSHOLES AKA THE RAINBOWFACES AKA WHAT MOST PEOPLE SAY JUMPED THE HELICOPRION BUT FUCK THAT if you haven’t seen the movie I won’t spoil their big reveal from the end but oh my GOD IT’S THE BIGGEST FUCKIN PLOT TWIST EVER AND EVEN AS A CHILD I LAUGHED MANIACALLY OVER HOW STUPIDLY AWESOME IT WAS

so yeah watch land before time vii stone of cold fire everyone it’s the best of the later sequels and has one of the most complex (and fan favorite) characters in the whole canon

And did I mention that the voice actors of Darkwing Duck and Pinky from Pinky and the Brain play Pterano’s sidekicks no well they do now go watch
