KingGigabyte : This is sadder than Bambi's mom and Mufasa's death by about 10x

Melissa xo : "Let your heart guide you, it whispers so listen closely" 😢😢😢❤️

Sean Wade : I saw this movie when it came out. I was 5. I teared up then when this scene played, at 27 I tear up now. LBT is a powerful film about loss, hope, and friendship that every kid needs to watch.

BellaNocturne : 25 years later and this caused me to cry just as hard as it did back then.

Ben Fisher : Those damn onions snuck up on me again..

Clare Coleman : I'm 30 years old and I still can't watch the film without sobbing at this part 😢

ReduxEditor335 : *JURASSIC WORLD (mild) SPOILER* When Chris and Bryce were comforting that dying apatosaurus, this scene was all I was thinking about... :'(

Wayne Kenney Jr : i know this is fake cuz dinosaurs can't talk

phoenixsplash135 : I legit still get super upset just thinking about this

max W : mufasas death? HA!!!!, you know nothing child. this scene tears me up each time... i would know I have about as much emotion as a robot.

Burton Pierre : I cry every time this scene comes up

Jonathan Larsson : The definition of an exceptional childhood movie: If it still gives you the feels as an adult.

Mella Bella : I can't watch this without sobbing! I cry more and more the older I get. 😩

Echosix Mock : Not gonna cry... DAMN IT!

Richard Taylor : This was the source of much childhood angst for me. One time while we were driving home from dropping my older siblings off at school I just broke down sobbing telling my mom that I didn't want her to die...


BearclawsX : This was the first movie that i ever cried to... I was 4 or 5 years old...

Arak Drakoniz : This scene was very reminiscent of when I sat by my close friend when she passed away as I held her hand. I immediately started to feel lost without her considering that she taught me a lot.

Queen Bee : Anyone who doesn't bawl their eyes out over this scene just isn't human in my opinion lol - I've never been able to get through this movie scene without crying ;'(

tranquelmischief : That line delivery "I'll be with you" at 1:10 with that music just pulls all major and minor emotional energies to your eyeballs.

miklas1911 : It's at times like these that you need Chandler to pop his head in and say: "Yes, it was very sad when the guy stopped drawing the Apatosaurus...", just to lighten the mood.

ECERD : Bear grylls would be up all over that. "Your mother has a lot of proteins, littlefoot"

BeanBag343 : Hey who left this bowl of onions here?

Forgotten Memory : (Getting Emotional), *deep breath*...

Raptorguy 64 : So there are like loads of people who cried when Simba saw his own dad die in the lion king. Loads of people died inside when they saw Bambi's mom get shot. BUT THIS... THIS MOMENT IN MY CHILDHOOD DESTROYED ME

Alan Hardman : Don Bluth...Sadistic Crazy man who created one of the greatest animations ever sicko making me cry over a dinosaur and mice!

HotWax93 : "Mother!  Mother!"  Reminds me of Bambi... ...Such a shame that there aren't more animators like Don Bluth who aren't afraid to take risks.

Soldier of Light : I watched this when I was 6 and since then I had dreams related to this movie...I stopped watching the movie until I saw the Nostalgia Critic's Top 11 Saddest Nostalgic Moment two years ago. Then...came the dying apatosaurus from Jurassic World and I had a thought of crying at both scenes...which I kept in check.

Dutchie M : My first feel god I wish I was a child again. :(

Ben Wood : am i the only one that thinks that the music that plays as littlefoot's mom dies sounds partially like the main theme of fire emblem?

Dragonite Dragonborn : i am 20 years old and this scene still makes me sad :( but great movie

hollywoodraptor0016 : This still fucking gets me every time. I don't get why people think of Bambi's mom before they think of this. She get's shot off screen and then they cut to spring-happy-fun-times in the next scene which ruins the moment completly for me. Mufasa's death is close, but does not pack a gut wrenching punch as hard as this. I can't even think about this scene without getting upset about it.

dovalle : R.I.P. James Horner

Hpool777 : This would make chuck norris cry

Patrick Anzaldua : Now I know how Littlefoot feels because I lost my mom when I was 16. It was hard to accept a parent's death. I didn't want to accept that she's dead at the time. But I'm glad that Littlefoot met his father on The Land Before Time X. Now I also don't have a dad. My parents are both gone. My mom died in 2007, and my dad died in 2008 after I turned 17. Believe me I had it really hard.

Charlotte92 : The Land Before Time-movies > The Land Before Time Tv-show by 1 million %

SpinJ678 : Oh god, this scene back repressed childhood memories of me crying like a faucet over this scene. It is right up there with Bambi, Homeward bound, Neverending Story, and Fox and the Hound. Hell even as I type this i'm freaking tearing up, I think I need a tissue... And a hug. =(

coochie eating bandit fan : time for a sad story ladies and gents!! Every time I would visit my grandmother at the beach I would watch this with her on vhs, I did this for years and years until she died in 2015, and the next time I went I watched this movie alone and all I could think about is my grandma being next to me ... I haven’t watched this movie in years and this scene will forever be part of my childhood as it represents something very special to me

Virginia Clark : Bambi doesn't find his Mother after she dies. Simba finds his Father but Mufasa was already dead. Littlefoot suffers the most for he sees his Mother die right before his eyes, giving her last words of wisdom and love before she dies. That is why The Land Before Time is sadder than Bambi and The Lion King when it comes to the deaths of parents. 😢🐬⛅🍓.

jon powell : "let your heart guide you, it whispers so listen closely." I can't help but feel in the bottom of my heart that when my mother leaves this world (and i pray that won't be anytime soon) that they could be the last thing she ever teaches me because that's the kind of woman she's always been.

Cyber Jackalope : DISNEY: "We're gonna kill Bambi's mother off-screen." DON BLUTH: "We're gonna cast a shadow on Littlefoot of the Sharptooth ripping a chunk out of his mother's back, then have them exchange last words in the rain as the camera slowly pulls out."

gatorrulers : I had a dream about Littlefoot and his mother last night. He had rested on top of her head, she looked happy to see him and it just seemed like a happy moment. My guess is that my dream is when Littlefoot passes away to old age and he reunites with her with him being a child in spirit-form. The two of them being together again in the great Sky Valley beyond the clouds. :'(

Piggy Oink Oink : Jurassic Bambi...

Jeremiah Blair : when I first watch this movie it reminds me of my cousin that live in Shawnee

Benny Beza : Saddest scene ever

Eliseah Michelle : I remember tearing up about this when I was little, and it's still sad just rewatching this.

Shichi7 : 8 movies later and we still miss her. . .. . le cry

withered962 : Holy crap as soon as it starts playing I started to tear up... You gotta be kidding me.

lonesoul 1428 : Why?! This scene has me bawling like a baby every time!!!

MrSilencer11 : and thus, my first ever manly tears showed up
