Land Before Time Land Before Time


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Littlefoot with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Land Before Time

Littlefoot is the brown 'Apatosaurus', often referred to as a "Longneck" from the Land Before Time franchise. He is often seen as the main character on the show/movie. His mother died in the first movie, in probably the most famous sequence from any of the movies. He acts as the leader of the group that contains Cera, Ducky, Petrie, Spike, and later Chomper and Ruby.

Littlefoot by far has had the most turnover when it comes to Voice Actors among the cast, being voiced or sung by 9 different actors as of the 13th movie.

Gabriel Damon voiced him in the original movie, Scott McAffee (brother of Anndi who was one of the actors who voiced Cera) voiced him in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th movies, Brandon LaCroix was the speaking voice of Littlefoot in the 5th movie while Thomas Dekker provided the singing voice. Dekker would take over as both the speaking and the singing voice for movies 6-9.

In the 10th, 11th, and 12th movies, Alec Medlock, Aaron Spann, and Nick Price voiced him respectively. Cody Arens has provided the speaking voice of Littlefoot in the latest movie as well as the television series. Anthony Skillman has provided the singing voice alongside Arens in those same incarnations.

In my honest opinion, Gabriel Damon is the best. Not that the other actors do bad jobs, but he sounds the most sincere of the who knows how many. Nonetheless, I have nothing against any of the others, they're all fine. Gabriel, though, was the one who created the part initially.

They should probably hire a woman who can do a boy voice to avoid constant recasting..

For all of the four dinos she voiced, I have to say Lani is best as Littlefoot

OK, Lani Minella would make a perfect Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Her Littlefoot sounds remarkably like an impression of Billie Mae Richards as opposed to any of the kids who actually voiced this character!

It's hard to compare unless doing cutscenes. I was a younger sounding Littlefoot in the earlier activity games and they asked him to sound older in the later ones. Just letting you know

@Lani Hi there, Ms. Minella! Thanks for stopping by! :) Always nice to see/hear the professionals speak about their work on the site.

Geez, this guy changes voice every other movie. I'd say the original did him best.

Clearly, Littlefoot has the most voice actors of all the characters. Since they were all child actors, I'm guessing the idea is to keep Littlefoot sounding young. This makes sense because all child actors change voices when they get older, so they can't maintain the original voice any longer.

I think I'll have to go with McAfee; it sounds like the right mix of kid and maturity without getting squeaky or annoying.

I think they're all pretty good. None of them stand out as being 'better' than any others though, in my opinion. If I had to, I'd choose Thomas Dekker.

Remarkable how similar some of the sound.

I don't like Arens voice
I like La Croix's voice but not for this character
I love Skillman as the singing voice but honestly in a very close call my two favorites are Price and McAfee

Sorry for the mixture of singing and speaking clips. I was having trouble finding a few speaking clips from the recent movies.
