I'll be with you even if you can't see me by Roses-and-Feathers I'll be with you even if you can't see me by Roses-and-Feathers
Littlefoot's mother: Dear, sweet, Littlefoot, do you remember the way to the Great Valley?
Littlefoot: I guess so. But why do I have to know if you're going to be with me?
Littlefoot's mother: I'll be with you. Even if you can't see me.
Littlefoot: What do you mean I can't see you? I can always see you.
-The Land Before Time (original)

Decided to draw this as I happened to be raising my male Meganium, named Littlefoot, in Pokemon SoulSilver. (yes I'm a sane pokemon fan and happy to be one). Seriously, the Chikorita line are actually now my 2nd favourite Johto starter line (the Cyndaquil line is first).

Since many people have drawn Shinx and Deerling acting out the tragic scenes from 'The Lion King' and 'Bambi' respectively (due to the animals these pokemon were based on), I've decided to have Chikorita (and the final evolution, Meganium) pay tribute to one of my favourite 80s and Don Bluth movies of all time- The original Land Before Time.

Petrie, along with Bartok the bat from Anastasia (Hey, I like bats!) remain my 2 all time favourite Don Bluth characters, though in terms of actual Protagonists, I'd say Miss Brisby (from Secret of Nimh), Charlie (from All Dogs Go to Heaven), Littlefoot and Anastasia <3

Now back to the actual scene. Seriously, what made this kid's movie (and some of Don Bluth's earlier films) so great was the fact that Bluth managed to put a ton of different emotions and not sugar-coat every single thing like some childrens' programmes do today. That in my mind made this films (and some of Disney's darker and sometimes not-so-popular films) more nostalgic in my eyes. I'm very surprised that Nostalgia Critic (c) himself- didn't put the Death of Littlefoot's mother on a higher spot on his 'top 11 Nostalgic moments' list. In my mind, it's a LOT more tearjerking than some of Disney's sad scenes (not all of them though).

Enjoy

Man I love this. 2 of my favorites nostalgic moments during my childhood reflects on this picture, and one of the saddest scene I had ever seen. Well Chikorita wasn't my favorite line, but I see that It makes sense for the picture.

Those movies I haven't seen for a long time, but are great movies. My favorite animated movie is The Fox and the Hound, and barely second The Land Before Time.
