* StockDinosaurs: An ''Apatosaurus'' for the obligatory sauropod (more anatomically accurate than most other movie "brontos" (the non-aquaticness and raised tails!), but still called ''Brontosaurus'' in releases), ''Triceratops'', ''Pteranodon'', ''Stegosaurus'', and ''Tyrannosaurus'' all play major roles in the film. And then we have the mammal-relative ''Dimetrodon'' ''with a snake-tongue''. ''Struthiomimus'', ''Parasaurolophus'', and ''Diplodocus'' make brief appearances as well. There are some aversions though: the hadrosaur of the gang belong to the relatively obscure ''Saurolophus'' ('''''Para'''saurolophus'' according to the producers); the armoured dinosaur Rooter is an old-fashioned ''Scolosaurus'' and not the usual ''Ankylosaurus''; a bale of the sea turtle ''Archelon'' are seen in the opening; a flock of the pterosaur ''Sordes'' (with pycnofibres) witness Littlefoot's birth; what appears to be a hypsilophodontid and a ''Dimorphodon'' are seen along with the animals fleeing from the earthquake; and this is perhaps the first time that the bone-headed ''Pachycephalosaurus'' appeared in a notable popular work, [[FantasticRacism portrayed as a vicious pack of racist bullies]]. The only stock dinosaur from the today [[Trivia/StockDinosaurs Five Man Band]] which is missing is ''Velociraptor'', but only because the film is older than ''Film/JurassicPark'' ([[SarcasmMode surprisingly]], raptors ''do'' appear in the first sequel made ''after'' Spielberg's film).

-->'''Cera''': You have to go to the Great Valley!\\
'''Scuttle''': Why should I?\\
'''Cera''': Because without the other sand-creepers, WHO'S GONNA LISTEN TO YOUR DUMB STORIES?!\\

** While the opening narration gets "Before the [[StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs mammoth and the mastodon]]" right, that's the extent of accuracy in this regard. While most of the species in the film are from the Late Cretaceous of North America, Littlefoot (an ''[[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Apatosaurus]]'') and Spike (a ''UsefulNotes/{{St|ockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs}}egosaurus'') are both Jurassic. While Littlefoot and family could be ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeSauropods Alamosaurus]]'', a sauropod from the proper time and place, there's no excuse for Spike's appearance. Plus, an even older ''[[StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs Dimetrodon]]'' is encountered halfway through the film. To put in perspective just how out of place a ''Dimetrodon'' is, it would be much less inaccurate to put a ''human'' in the film, at least if one judges purely by temporal proximity. The last ''Dimetrodons'' died out more than 200 million years before the late Cretaceous. Not to mention the ''Dimetrodon'' in the film has a snake-like tongue and a wrongly-shaped sail. Apparently, it was meant to be a fin-backed lizard.

* BerserkButton: Aside from the bout of depression he experiences in the first part of the film, the only time the normally level-headed Littlefoot loses it is when Cera insults his mother.
** Also, trying Littlefoot when [[MamaBear his mother]] is around. Even if you do happen to be a T-Rex.

* ShownTheirWork: For the time, and remember it was thirty-odd years ago and the complete remains of some of the featured species (especially Tyrannosaurus) hadn't been found yet, this was ''the'' most accurate dinosaur movie ever made (ignoring the AnachronismStew and TalkingAnimal issues). Even today, the care put into the film is impressive.
