Opening sequence

The opening sequence was 2D animated (Dinosaur Characters) and live action (Humans & World).

We fade into a dark blue sky with a stratus cloud in the middle. The "Ahh Chorus" synthesizer pad plays (which actually starts playing just before the fade in) as the stratus cloud begins to part, and the orange text, "The Land Before Time: Adventures in The Big City", emerges from the parting stratus cloud, thickens just after it appears, and begins to zoom in as the cloud continues to part away. Singers intone "Do, do, do..."  The cloud disappears from both sides as the text zooms in closer, and the camera moves through the letter "B" into a birds-eye view of New York City. We swoop over the Statue of Liberty and the One World Trade Center, fading into a street in Downtown Manhattan afterwards. We slowly zoom down the street while passing by Anti-Painless Dentistry towards the purple-colored Anderson Elementary School.

We fade into the school's entrance that the camera zooms onto for a bit and then pans by it to an open window. We zoom in through the school window, and Hyp is seen in a classroom writing a unique phrase repeatedly on the chalkboard as punishment. In the classroom, the walls are either gradient purple or gradient blue-violet, and a bulletin board with three crude drawings is hung next to Peter Parker. He stops writing and looks at the board unamused. As the school bell rings, Hyp turns towards the door, happily grins and leaves the classroom. The camera zooms out of the room and pans towards the school's entrance, where Hyp happily bursts out of the front doors on his skateboard, flies past the flag pole, dives back down, and skateboards past a big field with trees while going farther away.

Then it cuts to inside the Consolidated Edison Inc., where Garfield is seen working on bolts in his radioactive suit. The quitting whistle blows, much to Garfield's glee as he hears it, so he gleefully removes his radioactive suit helmet, puts down the tongs and leaves the building not realizing the green glow pole that accidentally bounced into his back. Behind him, a bald co-worker is holding a sandwich with his hands, and takes a bite after the whistle blows. The caution sign over Garfield's head has two holes on the right side, both blank.

The scene then cuts to Ruby and Tricia checking out at a supermarket. In the check out line, Ruby reads her Rolling Stone magazine with an ad for Frosted Milky Flakes on the back. Tricia is inadvertently scanned along with the groceries, without the cashier noticing. The cashier rings her up at as $847.63 and Tricia is mistakenly packaged in a plastic bag after the camera pans towards a different shot of Ruby and the cart. Ruby wonders where Tricia is while turning her head from the left. Tricia pops her head out of the bag, and Ruby sighs in relief as she and Tricia exit the supermarket. The scene cuts to the school once again, where Mr. Brian's band is practicing and where Ducky is seen playing the saxophone.

Ducky interrupts the rehearsal and plays a loud saxophone solo (theme song). Mr. Brian stops the band and points Ducky out of the door, due to her unacceptable playing. As the other students look on, she dances her way out of the classroom as she continues playing.

On their way to their house at 7th Avenue, the members of the family weave dangerously through traffic and in between fellow NY citizens. Garfield is first seen, driving down the street while leaving work, and uncomfortably discovering the glowing stick in his back. He pulls it out and throws it out the window as he drives away with dust covering the screen. The dust clears, and the rod is bouncing near The Soda Bar. Chomper comes by on his skateboard, with pursed lips in a half grin. His right foot sticks off the board, as he grabs the lamp post to help him make the corner. He skates past a pet store, and a TV store with a cameo of Fievel from An American Tail, which they turns and looks at. While passing by bored residents waiting for their bus, he grabs the bus stop sign and takes it with him. On the passing bus, a banner on the side says "Can't get enough of that wonderful Cola".

The bored residents notice their bus in shock, and chase after the bus as a smiling Ruby and Tricia turn the corner in Ruby's red minivan.

Inside the car, Tricia is shown steering the wheel with her tail. With tires screeching, the car passes by a factory and makes a tight curve. As the car approaches another road, the camera cuts back to Tricia as she steers again, and the car makes another turn. The camera cuts back to Tricia, revealing that the wheel is just a toy for her car seat, as the camera pans out to show Ruby driving. As the camera is zooming out, Tricia looks at Ruby, then back at the road. Then, they both look at each other, and honk both the car horn and Tricia's horn twice with Tricia's tail.

The camera cuts to a slightly low shot of Ducky, wobbling back and forth on her bike while on her way home, with a large stack of books in her bike's basket and her saxophone case behind her. She hits a bump, and all the books fly into the air, and then land safely back in the basket. She makes a turn (to our left) down the street passing by a streetlight, and finally arriving at the apartment. In a view showing the driveway, she jumps off her bike in the driveway, grabbing her books and instrument case. The bike moves into the garage as the garage door opens for both the bike and for Garfield's car, as Ruby runs to the front door. Garfield's car comes from left to right, makes the turn into the driveway and stops as the camera zooms in onto the car. From the right, Hyp one-hops his skateboard across Garfield's car. Garfield gets out, ducks under Etta who was flying (saying "D'oh!"), just in time to see Ruby's car. He screams, and runs into the garage as her car pulls in behind him. Frightened, he looks behind his left shoulder, then behind his right, and then opens the door leading into the downstairs hallway of the house.

Upon entering their house, they run towards the living room couch, with a different gag occurring. In the living room, the walls are gradient magenta, the floor is gradient teal, couch is brown, a mouse hole is seen to the left of the couch, a light purple lamp with an orange lamp shade is on a teal side table with light purple drawers and blue drawer knobs. As the theme song ends, the camera cuts to the television set that displays the first two opening credits in a wiggly yellow font similar to the text from the beginning (Created by Don Bluth and Charles Grovesner; Developed by Steven Spielberg, Matt Groening and Sam Raimi).

Reception

Good Reception

Tobey Maguire returns as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

TBA

Bad Reception

The show has had some bad moments, but the episode Night Fury Curse Lifted is infamous for its sudden retirement of one of the shows most popular characters, Night Fury Ruby. The episode was universally slammed by fans and critics and is commonly referred to as the worst episode of the show. The backlash was so severe, that the character was brought back only three episodes later. The couch gag of Night Fury Ruby Strikes Back! features an apology by Littlefoot and his friends for the episode, with Wild Arms humorously stating it was so bad he doesn’t even consider it canon. The latter episode was a huge success and led to the highly successful spin-off, Ruby: The Incredible Night Fury, which fans consider it even better than Adventures in the Big City.
