Sorry, did I scare you? I have that effect on folks sometimes.
Guido (a.k.a. Mysterious Guido by the official website and by fans), voiced by Rob Paulsen, is a character and one of the protagonists in the Land Before Time films and television series. He is a Microraptor, and first appeared in The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers.
He claims to never have seen another creature like himself. He is more of a comic relief character than previous guest characters. He later appears in "The Hermit of Black Rock", when he learns how to truly fly. Prior to that episode, he met Chomper and Ruby while he was babysitting Tricia. Guido and the Rainbow Faces are the only theropods in The Great Valley. He does not like plants but he eats worms (a common diet of most avian dinosaurs). He is the only known Glider so far.
Guido is a small, bipedal creature fairly larger than Petrie. He is covered in feathers, with most of his body being teal, his underbelly being a lighter shade of teal and the pennaceous feathers on his head, wings and tail being light green.
Though he is a Microraptor per promotional materials, he does not bear any resemblance to the genus; he has a parrot-like beak, no claws and no wings on his legs.
Land Before Time Wiki has a collection of images and media related to Guido.
- Coincidentally, another character named Guido appeared in the 2006 Disney/Pixar film, Cars. Cars and The Great Day of The Flyers were also made the same year.
- Among the Land Before Time characters, Guido is one of three characters to have ended up in the mouth of a Sharptooth at some point in the series; the other two are Littlefoot and Petrie.
- In his species' portrayal, Guido is depicted eating insects and other invertebrates; however, in reality, Microraptor were predatory animals, their diet having mainly been composed of animals such as frogs, fish, mammals and possibly very small dinosaurs and pterosaurs, like Ducky and Petrie respectively.
- His name is likely a play on his full species name, Microraptor Gui.
