It’s been quite some time since I’ve seen LBT, but I’ve recently started watching them again. I had forgotten how much I loved these movies. They have fond memories for me but I also just like them. I think I would like them even if I hadn’t grown up watching them and just discovered them now. What do you think?
I’m actually in the exact same boat as you. I had not seen any LBT movies for several years until I decided to revisit them after seeing the 14 movie on Netflix. I really love the movies and I too think I’d like them even if I hadn’t grown up with them. The funny thing is that my family has no recollection of me ever having seen LBT as a kid (how that’s possible is beyond me). What can I say? I love children’s movies and I love dinosaurs, so there’s that.
I got back into LBT so long ago it’s hard for me to remember the details. I had watched movies 1-6 when I was young. I sold the movies at a garage sale when I was 7 for some extra cash as I didn’t really watch them anymore (I had gotten into Pokemon by then and LBT just wasn’t the main focus anymore). Then I decided to watch them again when I was 14 and I fell back in love with them. I’m 26 now so it’s been 12 long years since then.
As for why I like the show, it’s the characters themselves that draw me in. I love watching Littlefoot and the rest of the gang go on adventures. The dynamic between all of them is really nice, and the stories aren’t half bad either. Overall it hasn’t aged well as a series when stacked up against newer shows like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but it was pretty darned good for the time and is still very watchable today. I know I’ll still watch it, even if there are newer and more exciting shows nowadays.
Funny thing: the sixth one was also the last one I saw as a kid, which is ironic, because I was born the same year that one came out.
