As a kid I couldn’t get enough dinosaurs so it was obvious that I loved The Land Before Time but this was during the time before all those sequels came out and I wanted more and I caught re-runs of this show that seemed like an animated show of the land before time. But even as a kid I used to find this show super boring as it looked too 80s for my 90s attitude and no matter how many times I watched it I just couldn’t get into it. So how does this Little Foot rip-off fare after I watched everything the Land Before Time Franchise had to offer? But more importantly, can this be a part of the continuity?
Dink, The Little Dinosaur
Released in 1989 which is shortly after the original Land Before Time movie came out and counting how long it takes to get animated projects out I’m not so sure how much of a copy this cartoon is to the Land Before Time movie. I mean if we analyze the show it’s obviously a straight rip-off but if we take a look at the time it was released it makes it seem that many choices were likely coincidences. But yes we have a small brontosaurus named Dink and the title refers to him as “The Little dinosaurs” to further drive the point that he is just like Little Foot and he’s the leader of his group of friends and they go on adventures.
