* TheMerch: Needless to say, this is part of how the movie made as much money as it did, as Bluth & co.'s designs for our heroes were highly marketable. Merch of particular note, though, were the puppet toys that Pizza Hut offered for a dollar alongside a pizza order in their sit-down restaurants. (Yes, [[AluminumChristmasTrees Pizza Hut used to do things like movie tie-in toys]].) These were tremendously popular and were both a major boost for Pizza Hut and helped boost sales of the film; they were so popular that, when the movie came to home video in '89, the toys came back (for a ''home video promotion'') and two more puppets even got added to the line, those being Petrie... and ''Sharptooth''. (Uh...)

** The original film trailer has another apparently deleted bit from the final scene with Littlefoot saying "now we'll always be together!". This one sticks out to a lot of kids of TheEighties, because this clip was also ''heavily'' used by Pizza Hut in their cross-promotional commercials for their ''Land Before Time'' toys, and these commercials were omnipresent in children's programming in 1988. It's to the point that a lot of people who haven't seen the film in ages [[BeamMeUpScotty may well "remember" that line being in the film]].

* ExecutiveMeddling: The film was originally DarkerAndEdgier, but many scenes were deleted because they were [[AnimationAgeGhetto "too scary for kids"]]. This explains the film's very short running time.
** It should be noted that for older viewers, it would have simply made the film better. Which is why fans are trying desperately to track down these scenes.

* ScienceMarchesOn: A very interesting example; studies done long after the film's release revealed that ceratopsian dinosaurs may have been opportunistic omnivores; in other words, ''Triceratops'' like Cera may well have been willing to eat ''meat'' in real life as well as plants!
** Then again, she ''did'' look at a fly while smacking her lips then seemed to try to bite it in the original film...
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A total of nineteen minutes of footage was cut due to ExecutiveMeddling, though Don admitted removing the more horrific scenes contributed to the film's success. Additionally, the film's second half was not as Don originally intended. In the original version, Littlefoot finds the Great Valley after he goes off alone and the others go with Cera. He realizes that he has to go find the others because they won't find it on their own, and goes back after them, finding them in the volcano. The Sharptooth scene then happens and he leads them to the valley. This can be detected in the final film. In the scene where Littlefoot is telling his mother he'll never find the Great Valley because it's too hard, the rock they pushed onto Sharptooth is still there in the foreground; and the scene where he looks over the Great Valley shows him standing alone and is closely followed by a shot of Littlefoot and the others sliding to a stop with Petrie perched on his head.
** There is also a deleted scene where the group finds an oasis, but the two groups of dinosaurs already there get discriminatory and say that only Ducky can drink.
*** These elements still appear in the children's book released with the film.
