Describe Jittery Dragon here.

Oh dear god, here we go...

Jittery Dragon, a.k.a. Jitts, makes YouTube Poop from The Land Before Time series. The poops are united by several common threads, including epic music, constant anticlimactic death, and bizarre humor. The two most recent series, Rocks Fall Everyone Dies and The Land Before Everyone Froze to Death, are connected by a loose storyline involving Pterano, Petrie's untrustworthy uncle, ascending to godhood and hexing the Great Valley For the Evulz.

Sadly, like all great Youtube content creators, he was removed by copyright infringement. Unfortunately, his forums and deviantart account have also been deactivated. The only thing that remains of him are the few fragments of his YTP's uploaded by fans on youtube.

This creator provides examples of:

  • All Just a Dream: The ending of Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies.
  • All There in the Manual: Most Character Development occurs on the forum.
  • Anything That Moves: Cera proclaims herself as such, though the only real evidence we've seen is her repeated attempts to mate with a tree.
  • Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: Pterano ascends to godhood when he touches the Stone of Cold Fire (after a few false starts).
  • Author Appeal: Symphonic Metal is all over the place, which the many musical numbers in the source material provide ample time for.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Littlefoot gets way more than he bargained for when he yanks Chomper behind a rock.
    • Solomon Grundy's solution to an imminent thrashing by Wonder Woman.
    • The driving force of the plot of "A Sudden Craving for Fish Fingers" is that all of the other kids are too busy to rape Littlefoot, despite his enthusiastic offer.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: As the editing improved the random deaths became more graphic. Overlaps quite nicely with Bloody Hilarious, given the absolutely comical amounts of blood they can shed.
  • Broken Record: "Phonofoot". Literally, seeing as how he's Littlefoot with a broken phonograph for a head. Pops up again in the sequel, when Cera and Petrie also gain phonograph heads for a single scene.
  • Butt-Monkey: While everyone can and will suffer horribly, Petrie suffers a disproportionate amount of horrendous misfortune, and his deaths tend to be punctuated by applause and cheers.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Petrie's rant during Rocks Fall Everyone Dies
  • Driven to Suicide: Ducky's mom blows her head off in front of the kids.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A horrifying, abominated version of Buddy keeps appearing in the Dinosaur Train YTPs. At one point, it kills the animator with a fatal heart attack.
  • Extra Lives: How everyone survives repeated death, apparently.
    • Averted with God Pterano. The Super Mario Bros. game over screen even appears to assure the viewer that, yes, Pterano really is dead this time.
      • Not quite...
  • Eye Scream: Pterano during one of RFED's endings.
    • The King, along with Michael Palin and a few others, gets shot repeatedly in the eyes with arrows, usually taking a Beat to start screaming in pain.
  • Foreshadowing: Guido reaching out for God Pterano's fallen guitar.
  • Freudian Slip: Petrie. All the freaking time.
  • Fun with Subtitles: Spike and Tricia are given subtitles here, usually discussing burritos and genocide, respectively.
  • Guns Akimbo: Petrie and Duckie in the opening of Dungeons & Dinosaurs Part 3, and God Pterano in the final part of The Land Before Everyone Froze To Death.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    Pterano: *smacks Rinkus across the face after he swats away Petrie* If there's one thing I will not tolerate, it's violence!
    Rinkus: Then why are you hitting me?
    Pterano: Right, make that two things: violence and the Dutch! *smacks Rinkus upside the head, making him careen into a cliff and explode*
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: God Pterano. With a guitar.
    • The King, during the opening of LBEFTD Part 2, though he's able to keep going about his day with minimal fuss after an initial shriek of pain.
  • Incendiary Exponent: Bursting into flames with shock is an early Running Gag in Land Before Everyone Froze To Death.
  • Intoxication Ensues: Littlefoot's acid trip upon licking one of the plants on the Island of Doom.
    • Also the effect "hardwater sweets" have on Spike.
  • Light Is Not Good: The ascension of God!Pterano is marked by orange and white light (it involved footage from Neon Genesis Evangelion, which is notable for the use of this trope). Afterwards...not so much, considering he doesn't even bother to hide that he's evil. Although his angel wings are still bright amber coloured.
  • Made of Explodium: If something falls and doesn't go SPLAT!, it explodes. Characters' heads also tend to violently detonate for no reason, and Rinkus spectacularly explodes upon impact with a cliff in Rocks Fall Everyone Dies Part 2.
  • Made of Plasticine: Rinkus accidentally decapitates himself whilst making a "throat slit" gesture. His head falls off again later when he looks into a hole Duckie fell into.
  • Mind Screw: Combined with...
  • Negative Continuity: Someone tends to die every thirty seconds or so, sometimes everyone at once. According to Pterano, he's died several times in the past. Apparently justified, as deaths are often accompanied by "lost a life" sound effects from Super Mario Bros. or Sonic The Hedgehog.
    • Apparently subverted with the most recent death of God Pterano
  • Never Mess with Granny: "Get the fuck out of here before I kick your ass". Granted, it is a line taken from a completely different work, and the trope never gets invoked latter, but still...
    Grandma Longneck (to Doc): Welcome to the Great Valley. Now get the fuck out of here before I kick your ass.
    Grandpa Longneck (a little later): As Grandma said, you're welcome here.
    Grandma Longneck: I didn't say that!
    [Take 2]
    Grandpa Longneck: As Grandma said, get the fuck out of here.
    Doc: Oh boy! I can't wait to get the fuck out of here!
  • Not Quite Dead: God Pterano, now Neo-Pterano.
  • One-Winged Angel: God Pterano. Technically a six-winged angel.
  • Overly-Long Gag: And it flew real low...
  • Really Gets Around: Littlefoot has apparently scored with Ali, Cera, Ruby, Petrie, Chomper and Mr. Thicknose.
    • Cera repeatedly implies she'll have sex with just about anything, animate or not, when her urges kick in.
    • Spike implies Mr. Threehorn is, like his daughter, the Great Valley's town bicycle.
    Spike: "Sometimes I think Mr. Threehorn enjoys loads of sex.
  • Red Herring: God Spike
  • Running Gag: The cow that appears in the background at random intervals.
    • Possibly the frequent use of Giygas when something particularly sinister is involved.
    • There's a surprising amount of silent film sequences, usually when referring to a previous part.
    • A short tempered rooster, often used for a Visual Pun whenever a "cock" is referenced. Which happens quite often.
    • Whenever something explodes, a frying pan will land a moment or two later.
  • Shout-Out: Every other line.
  • Spin-Off: The Dinosaur Train Poops.
  • Spit Take: The King pulls this off when he hears the dinosaurs mention poop.
  • Stealth Pun: The Dinosaur Train episode was made using footage from the episode about poop.
  • The Power of Rock: In The Land Before Everyone Froze To Death, Phonofoot comes back from the dead as an angel and challenges God Pterano to a duel. With electric guitars.
  • Trope Namer: The title "Rocks Fall Everyone Dies."
  • Urine Trouble: Ruby rather happily announces to Littlefoot that she's wet herself, to his noticeable discomfort.
  • Villains Out Shopping: God Pterano spends the first part of Land Before Everyone Froze To Death idly watching Billy Mays advertisements in his evil space fortress.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: All over the place, usually punctuated by Luigi declaring the stream of bile to be "Spaghetti!" He eventually falls victim to Gwonam barfing twice in quick succession.
  • Your Head A-Splode: Pterano during one of RFED's endings.
    • And everywhere else.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle!: At the end of The Land Before Everyone Freezes To Death, when everyone celebrates, God Pterano bumps by.

There Is no Such Thing as Notability.
