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.

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

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...

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

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

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

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!

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.


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.

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.

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.

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

Burton Pierre : I cry every time this scene comes up

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 ;'(

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?

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

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

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

BeanBag343 : Hey who left this bowl of onions here?

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

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

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

SmashSuperODSTs : 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.

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.

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.

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. =(

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.

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.

dovalle : R.I.P. James Horner

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. :'(

Hpool777 : This would make chuck norris cry

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

Benny Beza : Saddest scene ever

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

Luke Dearey : how can anyone feel sorry for something that has been dead for millenniums?

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

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

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

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

The Hungry Troll : :'(   there is no sadder moment in the history of TV

Jeremy Langford : It listen closely :D

Hymer300 : Epic cry :'(
