    Was this Lucas' only cartoon? I was kind of dissapointed in the animation.

    No it wasn't his only cartoon. And i guess you mean more like Lucasfilm.

    There were of course the Droids and Ewoks Saturday morning cartoons. Also there was Twice Upon a Time back in 1992, a small and not widely seen animated theatrical film..

    Indirectly, ILM worked in a few cartoons (mainly 2 Disney Roger Rabbit shorts).

    Was ILM even involved in this movie? I thought it was all traditional anamation.

    Yes ILM did work on Twice Upon a Time. No, I don't know exactly what they did, probably only opticals.

    It was a traditional animated film though the animation was lit from below so it kinda glowed. Maybe Korty used some of the animation stands too at ILM.

    Just how old is your sister, TBF? Sad as in :( :_| or sad as in [face_shocked] [face_laugh]? It wasn't all that sad! And it was a pretty good movie, nice score by James Horner, nice animation. Wasn't it produced by Spielberg and Lucas and directed by Bluth?

    We are discussing 2 movies here. The Land Before Time was indeed by Bluth, Spielberg and Lucas and more of you typical animated film (mostly fun for kids).

    Twice Upon a Time (1982) was done by John Korty a friend of Lucas. It was a more adult themed animated movie (say like Spirited Away, Prince of Egypt or Spirit).

    Eugene_Meltsner_AIO: My sister found it :( :_|. She was in grade five and had to watch it at school. She doesn't like sad movies, especially ones that involve animals.

    Twice Upon A Time was a fantastic movie!!! Unfortunately, the only version that is available on VHS is the watered-down "children's" version. The original theatrical release (which I must have seen on HBO about 20 times) was filled with... shall we say adult language... very funny stuff... the kids version is still funny, but it's lacking the harder edge of the original.
