Though not quite done yet, this episode of Season 2 finally explains about Red Claw, Chomper, and Ruby and them coming to the Great Valley.
EPISODE 33: SHARPTOOTH FAMILY REUNION
Papa Sharptooth (Magnus)
Mama Sharptooth (Tyra)
Ruby’s Mother (Ovi)
Ruby’s Father (Tor)
Littlefoot and his friends were talking with Ruby’s parents. They had gone to the Mysterious Beyond. “What have you learned?” asked Ruby’s father Tor.
“We have learned some things. Sharpteeth don’t like Tree Sweets. We drove off Red Claw with some of them. “said Ruby.
“I could have told you that.” said Chomper, shaking his head. “We are learning more and more about the Great Valley. They don’t seem to mind being with different kinds. ”
“That is good. Wish it were so out here.” said Ruby’s mother Ovi.
Ruby hugged her parents goodbye and then they headed back toward the Great Valley. However, along the way, they came across two Sharpteeth. The group was a bit uneasy at first. “Sharpteeth!” cried Ducky in fright.
Ruby, however, soon recognized the Sharpteeth. Hello Magnus and Tyra. said Ruby in Sharptooth.
Hello Mom and Dad. said Chomper.
Hello Chomper. How are you doing? asked Chomper’s father Magnus.
I am doing fine. Wish we could beat Red Claw though. I saw the Great Valley chase him off once. said Chomper.
How did they beat him? asked Chomper’s mother Tyra.
Littlefoot’s grandpa and Cera’s dad worked together to fight him. They threw Tree Sweets into his mouth. said Chomper.
Wish I could have seen that. said Magnus.
“Chomper, I’ve been meaning to ask, why exactly is Red Claw after you and Ruby?” Littlefoot said.
“He’s angrier with me than with Ruby.” Chomper replied.
“Why is that?” Cera asked.
“Because I hurt his eye.” Chomper replied.
“What happened?” Littlefoot asked.
“Well, you see….” Chomper said.
[Theme song: “All I see is the day in front of us. All I see is the day in front of us. Burning bright with a new-born sun. Burning bright with a new-born sun. Come follow me. Hills to climb and valleys to roam
Oh, streams to follow all the way home
To the Land Before Time
Some time ago, Chomper had been wandering around in the Mysterious Beyond. He had been chasing two Tickly Fuzzies. One had gotten away and the other he’d eaten. He was still somewhat hungry and so was still looking for the other one. Eventually, he spotted the little rodent. Aha, I see you! he said. The creature ran. He gave chase. Eventually, he had it cornered against a cliff. Right before he could leap at it, he saw a Fast Runner running by.
“Oh no, another one!” she cried. Back! Don’t hurt me! she shouted at him, moving up her arms to shield herself.
I’m not going to hurt you. he said to her. Her returned his focus to the Tickly Fuzzy that he’d cornered. He picked it up. It struggled but couldn’t break free. He had the creature poised over his mouth and was just about to drop it into it when he heard something big stomping toward him. What could that be? he asked himself aloud. He dropped the rodent into his mouth and snapped it shut. The Fast Runner looked away in disgust. He was about to bite into the creature when he saw a huge grey and tan colored Sharptooth with a brown stripe on his back and a huge scar on his face and across his right arm come into sight. The Sharptooth moved toward the Fast Runner. Chomper turned his gaze toward him.
Please don’t eat me! I do not want to be eaten. she pleaded with the large Sharptooth. Chomper saw that the Sharptooth was a Two Claw like himself.
There you are. You’ll have to try harder than that to outrun Red Claw. he laughed. He turned and looked at Chomper The Fast Runner is mine. I saw her first! he snapped.
Chomper opened his mouth to reply. The Tickly Fuzzy used the opportunity to leap out and run for it. Can’t you let her go? She’s just a kid. Chomper asked the fierce-looking Sharptooth.
No, she’s mine! the Sharptooth snapped. He advanced toward the Fast Runner, who backed away from him.
He moved forward toward her. Please don’t eat me! If I am eaten, I will not be around to get older and I would like to grow up! the Fast Runner pleaded.
Chomper felt sorry for her. If she’d been an adult, he would have let the Sharptooth get her. It was no use in taking food from a Sharptooth. While he himself didn’t eat Flatteeth or Bothteeth, he knew that his parents did and so understood to let nature have its way. As it was, the Fast Runner was just a child. It didn’t seem right.
The Sharptooth moved in front of the Fast Runner, his mouth open, his maw dripping saliva. “Oh no! I can’t look!” the Fast Runner cried, covering her eyes.
CHOMP! Chomper bit the Sharptooth in the tail! The Sharptooth turned around to glare at him, snarling in anger. What are you doing, you insolent Little Biter? I said that the Fast Runner is mine!
Chomper replied I don’t think you should eat a kid.
I’ll do as I please! the Sharptooth snapped.
Chomper threw a rock at him. CONK! The rock smacked him right between the eyes Pick on somebody your own size, you big bully! Chomper shouted at him.
You little brat! the Sharptooth snarled. He moved toward Chomper. The Fast Runner used the opportunity to run under his legs. Now he was really mad. Get back here! he shouted at her.
I do not wish to be eaten so I will not be doing that. the Fast Runner replied.
Chomper ran after her. The Sharptooth chased after the both of them. You’ve really upset Red Claw now. the Fast Runner said to him.
Red Claw? Chomper asked her.
He’s the meanest Sharptooth around here. Possibly the meanest of all. she replied.
Who are you? Chomper asked her.
My name is Ruby. Who are you? Why are you helping me? she said.
Chomper. I don’t think he should be eating kids. Chomper replied.
Red Claw continued to chase after them. Eventually, the both of them found that they had run into a dead end. Got you trapped, you little brats! Red Claw snapped at them
What are we going to do now? Ruby asked Chomper in concern.
They began to climb a rocky ledge, for it was their only hope to try and escape. Chomper was below Ruby. Both of them were clambering upward, hoping to get to the top and run before he could reach them. As Red Claw moved toward them with his maw, Chomper decided to try and fight him off, hoping to, if not save himself, to save Ruby at least. He leapt at the Sharptooth, his claws outstretched. RAHHHHHH! RNNNNNH! RAHHHH! Red Claw snarled, his right eye damaged by Chomper’s claws. Chomper was thrown by the force of Red Claw stumbling around in pain. Ruby, who was at the top of the rock ledge, caught him and pulled him to safety. The two ran for it, now out of reach of Red Claw.
I’ll get you, you little brat! You’d better watch your back! he shouted threateningly at Chomper.
Thank you Chomper. You saved my life. Ruby said to him.
Back in the present, Ducky interrupted Chomper’s narration. “So that is how you meeted Ruby.”
“Yes, it is.” Chomper replied.
“So, what happened after that?” Cera asked.
“We became friends.” Chomper replied, recalling how it had happened.
Over a year ago, Chomper had said to Ruby You’re welcome. I wasn’t going to let him eat you.
And you aren’t going to eat me either? Ruby asked him.
Nope. I’m a friendly Sharptooth. he replied.
Why are you friendly? she asked.
Flatteeth were kind to me when I was a hatchling and saved me from Egg Stealers. Later, a Longneck saved me from drowning. he replied.
I wonder if you know the language of Flatteeth then if you’ve been around them. Ruby said.
“Yes, I do actually.” Chomper replied.
“That is good, as I know Leaf Eater better than I do Sharptooth.” Ruby said
Chomper heard loud footsteps coming toward him. His mom and dad came into sight. Ruby tried to hide, rather unsuccessfully, in a bush. His father sniffed the air. He then said I smell Fast Runner.
“Tell him not to eat me.” Ruby whispered to Chomper.
She’s a friend. Chomper quickly said to his parents.
Are you sure? I could use lunch right about now. his father asked.
Yes, I’m sure. Chomper reassured him.
Very well then. his mother said. Ruby sighed in relief.
Sometime later, Ruby said to Chomper “Thank you for saving me from Red Claw and getting your parents not to eat me.”
“No problem. Glad to have a new friend.” Chomper replied.
“We are friends. Friends we are.” Ruby began to sing.
“Our friendship is going to go far.” Chomper sang.
“We are friends. You and me.” sang Ruby.
“We’re going to have fun together, just wait and see.” sang Chomper.
“We are going to run around and play.
We’re going to have great adventures today.” sang Ruby.
“We’re going to have such a joyful time together.” sang Chomper.
“We’re going to be friends forever.” they both sang.
“Many things we will do.” sang Chomper.
“Having fun together, me and you.” sang Ruby.
“Have you ever been friends with a Sharptooth before?” Chomper sang.
“No, but you’re so nice for a carnivore.” Ruby sang in reply.
“Now I don’t have to be alone anymore.” Chomper sang.
“Because we are going to be friends forevermore.” they both sang, finishing the song.
Back in the present, Cera asked “So what did you guys do?”
“We went to the Cave of Bubbling Waters.” Ruby said.
“Where that?” Petrie asked.
“It’s a cave out in the Mysterious Beyond. It’s some distance from where my herd lives.” Ruby replied. “So Chomper and I went to the cave. Chomper had never been there before.”
Over a year earlier, Chomper and Ruby had arrived at the cave. “Are you sure this is the place?” Chomper asked.
“Yes, I’m sure that I’m sure.” Ruby replied.
The two headed inside. Chomper heard a bubbling sound. “What is that sound?” he asked her.
“That is the bubbling waters.” Ruby replied.
“The only time I’ve seen water bubble is when my tush blew a boomer while in it.” Chomper laughed. Ruby scowled. Chomper was so immature.
They came to the bubbling waters. “I wonder what makes them bubble.” Chomper said.
“I’m not sure, but I do know that it is warm.” she replied.
Chomper went into the water. “You’re right. It is warm.” he said.
Ruby climbed in next to him. “Yes, I find it relaxing. I come here for many hours each day.” she said.
“That seems silly to spend so much time in bubbling water.” Chomper laughed.
RNNNNH! They both looked around to see if they could find the source of the snarl. RNNNH!
“That was a Fast Biter snarl.” Ruby whispered.
“We need to hide.” Chomper said.
The two waded through the water. At one point, Chomper had to grab onto Ruby to get across for it was over his head. Behind them, two Fast Biters entered the cave. “Oh no, it’s Screech and Thud!” Ruby whispered to Chomper.
“Who are Screech and Thud?” Chomper asked her.
“They’re Red Claw’s Fast Biters.” Ruby replied.
“Red Claw has Fast Biters working with him?” Chomper gasped.
“Yes. Red Claw, Screech, and Thud terrorize the Mysterious Beyond. Nobody has stood up to them until you came along.” Ruby replied.
Screech and Thud entered the cave. I smell a Fast Runner. Screech said to Thud.
I smell a Two Claw with her. Thud remarked.
Perhaps we should look elsewhere. I don’t feel like fighting a Two Claw to get a meal right now. Screech suggested.
Thud continued to sniff and eventually spotted Chomper. That’s not a full-grown Two Claw. It’s only a Little Biter. he remarked to his brother Screech.
Screech came toward Chomper and Ruby. I want that Fast Runner. You can have what’s left when we’re done. Screech said to him.
No, you can’t have her! Chomper shouted angrily at him.
Being selfish, eh? Thud growled at him.
No, she is my friend! Chomper retorted. The two howled with laughter at this remark.
Fast Runners make better food than friends! Screech laughed.
Come and get us then, you Slow Biters! Chomper taunted them.
You’re going to eat those words, you little brat, and then we’re going to eat you! Thud snarled at him.
“Let’s get out of here!” Chomper said to Ruby. The two reached the other side of the water and began to run.
Come on, let’s not let them get away! Screech said to Thud.
But I hate going in water. Thud grumbled.
Come on. Screech snapped at him.
The two jumped into the water. Some of the way through, water bubbled around Thud. Nice going brother! Screech laughed Thud turned red with embarrassment.
It wasn’t me! Honest! Thud tried to argue.
The two made it to the other side of the water. Where did they go? Screech asked Thud.
I smell them around here somewhere. Thud replied.
The two began sniffing for the kids. They turned right and went down a tunnel, for they didn’t see the kids anywhere. As soon as they were gone, Chomper and Ruby emerged from a crevice that had been hastily blocked by small rocks.
“Glad they didn’t see us.” Ruby said.
“I know. I’m glad they’re gone. I was feeling cramped in there.” Chomper replied.
The two went back across the water and exited the cave. Ruby noticed her parents looking for her. “Oh no, they thought I’d be back by now but I wasn’t back because Screech and Thud were after us, which kept me from coming back!”
Ruby’s father spotted her, but not Chomper, who had been standing behind her. “There you are dear!” Tor called to her.
Ruby moved toward him. As she did so, she revealed Chomper. “Ruby, run, there’s a Sharptooth behind you!” Ovi called to her.
“Mom, this is Chomper. He is a nice Sharptooth.” Ruby called back to her.
“Nice Sharptooth?” asked Ovi.
“Yes. He saved me from Red Claw.”
“He did? When did that happen?” Tor asked.
“About a week ago.”
“Why didn’t you tell us?” asked Ovi in alarm.
“Didn’t want to worry you. Red Claw wasn’t pleased that Chomper helped me get away. And we just got away from Screech and Thud just now.”
“Screech and Thud were after you?! And who is Chomper?” asked Tor.
“I am.” Chomper replied.
“Wait, he can talk?” gasped Ovi and Tor.
“Yep, I can.”
Ovi asked “Where did you learn to talk?”
“Leaf Eaters. Raised me for a little while.”
“Thank you so much for saving our daughter!” said Tor.
“No problem.” Chomper replied.
Back in the present, Ruby told Littlefoot and the others “So all was going well for a while. However, eventually, Red Claw came.”
Over a year earlier, Chomper was heading off to go visit Ruby. THUMP! THUMP! THUMP! Dad is that you? he asked. THUMP! THUMP! THUMP! Mom?
ROAR! Red Claw came into sight. He wasn’t alone either; Screech and Thud were with him. Ahhh, it’s Red Claw, Screech, and Thud! Chomper cried in alarm. He took off, and the trio chased after him. SNAP! SNAP! SNAP! Screech snapped at him, barely missing his tail.
Get him! Don’t let him get away! Red Claw said to Screech and Thud.
Up ahead was some sinking sand. Oh no! Chomper cried in horror.
Trapped now you little brat! Screech laughed. Chomper was nervous but soon spotted a vine. It looked nearly long enough. He would have to jump when he reached the end of its reach and hope that he could make it. He grabbed onto it and jumped. RNNNNH! SNAP! Thud lunged at where he had been and snapped his jaw shut, just narrowly missing him. Chomper jumped from the vine as he reached the end. The grabbed onto a rock, dangling above the sinking sands. He was soon able to pull himself up to safety.
You can run but you can’t hide, Little Biter! Red Claw called after him, unable to reach him.
The next day, Chomper came to Ruby. “Something looks like it is bothering you.” Ruby said to him.
Chomper replied “Red Claw, Screech, and Thud tried to kill me.”
“That is not good!” Ruby said.
ROAR! Red Claw appeared, flanked by Screech and Thud. “And there he is again!” Chomper cried in alarm.
Don’t let them get away this time! Red Claw told Screech and Thud.
“Run!” Ruby yelled.
Chomper and Ruby ran toward Chomper’s home. Red Claw, Screech, and Thud pursued after them.
The two came across Chomper’s mother. Mom, it’s Red Claw! Chomper called to her.
Red Claw, Screech, and Thud came into sight. Get away from him you big bullies! she shouted at the trio.
Red Claw shoved her aside. Out of the way girl! She slammed Red Claw down by head-butting him. However, he soon got up and slashed her in the leg with his foot claw. She fell down, hurt. THWACK! Red Claw turned around, snarling. Ruby had hurled a rock at his head.
Red Claw moved toward Ruby. Chomper’s mother used the opportunity to get back up. She kicked at Screech and Thud, sending them flying a few feet. However, they soon leapt back up and bit her in the tail. She cried out in pain.
CHOMP! Chomper bit Thud in the tale. Go away you big bully! he shouted.
Somebody is going to have to teach you manners, Little Biter. Screech said to him.
ROOOOAR! Chomper’s father arrived. Leave my family alone! he bellowed at Red Claw and the two Fast Biters
Your little brat hurt my eye and now I’m going to teach him a lesson! Red Claw snapped.
Stick around and I’ll hurt the other eye! Magnus threatened him. Red Claw bit him in the arm. Magnus cried in pain. Luckily, the bite wasn’t bad. Magnus retaliated by clawing Red Claw on the shoulder.
Screech and Thud ran at Chomper. Tyra grabbed him and pulled him out of reach just in time. The two Fast Biters then went toward Ruby. Mom, don’t let them get Ruby! Chomper told her. She grabbed Ruby and pulled her to safety just in time.
Tyra, run! I’ll hold them off! Magnus told his wife.
You sure you can take all three of them? she asked him.
Just go! he insisted. Tyra ran off with Chomper and Ruby. Up ahead, she saw a cliff. She leapt over it. Two minutes later, Magnus, pursued by Red Claw, Screech, and Thud. He took a running jump over the cliff. After landing on the other side, he and Tyra blocked the path. Go back you big bully, you’ve lost! he called to Red Claw, Screech, and Thud.
Your little brat can’t hide forever! I’ll get him someday! Red Claw said before leaving with Screech and Thud.
Magnus, are you all right? Tyra asked her mate.
Yes, dear. he replied.
What are we going to do about Red Claw? Tyra asked Magnus.
Maybe I can go to the Great Valley and get their help. Remember how they beat you two by working together? Chomper said to his parents.
Yes, I remember. said Magnus in much the same tone that Petrie had said “Me remember.” when asked by Chomper some years earlier if he had remembered his parents.
Would they even let you in? Tyra asked her son.
Chomper wasn’t sure on that himself. However, he knew that Littlefoot would speak up for him at any rate. I think so. he replied.October 6, 2017 at 9:52 pm #3603

Maybe Chomper can go with me. Ruby suggested.
What do you mean? Would your parents even like our son? Tyra asked her.
I think they do. Ruby replied. She knew her folks liked Chomper for saving her but still mistrusted him somewhat since he was a Sharptooth.
Won’t Red Claw notice you leaving though? He seems to be staking us out. Magnus asked.
We can go at night. Red Claw will not be looking for us at night. Ruby suggested.
Ruby’s right. I don’t think Red Claw would expect me to run away from home. And even if he did, he wouldn’t be expecting me to do it at night. Chomper remarked.
I think it would be best if we went tonight. The Night Circle shouldn’t be out tonight. Ruby suggested.
“Tonight? As in a few hours?” Chomper gasped.
“I think so. We can go stay with my parents before going to the Great Valley. My Star Day is in two weeks and we can go then.” Ruby said.
