Twelfth Land Before Time animated adventure. Petrie is having a difficult time preparing for 'The Day of The Flyers' - an important calendar mark for all of the flying residents of the Great Valley. On this special day, all young flyers must participate in a flying exhibition to prove that they are ready to fly with the adults. A nervous flyer, Petrie even has trouble flying with his sibling in precise group formations-he's more of an independent, free-style kind of guy. At the same time, a strange newcomer to the Great Valley has Littlefoot and his friends trying to help figure out just exactly what he is. His name's Guido and he's the strangest looking creature anyone in the Great Valley has ever seen. Guido's covered with multicolored 'fuzzies' (feathers), and has himself never seen another like him! Cera is having her own troubles, as her grumpy Dad and his new mate, Tria, get ready to welcome a new hatchling to the family. All of these issues come together on the night before 'The Day of The Flyers', when Guido starts to figure out what he is, inadvertently leading all of the gang on a perilous adventure into the Mysterious Beyond.
Young dinosaur friends Little Foot, Cera, Spike, Ducky, and Petrie are content with their lives in the Great Valley, but things keep changing and sometimes the friends just feel like they don't quite fit in. As Petrie struggles to perfect his flying for the very important Day of the Flyers, he realises how different he is from his brothers and sisters and, while he and his friends value his uniqueness, it's causing big problems in the family's flight formations. Meanwhile, Cera is struggling with the arrival of a new baby sister and the resulting lack of attention from her father and Tria. When an odd creature named Guido shows up in the valley, Petrie befriends him and learns an important lesson about how to maintain his individuality while still contributing to his family's collaborative flight. A courageous act by Guido saves Cera's sister from peril, helping Cera realize how much she really cares about her new sister, and sparking a personal revelation that gives Guido a much better sense of his own place in the world. This is an entertaining animated show with a wholesome message about the importance of friendship, adaptability, and uniqueness. (Ages 3 to 7) --Tami Horiuchi
