Guido (a.k.a. Mysterious Guido by the official website and by fans), voiced by Rob Paulsen, is a character 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. Although rumored to be multicolored, his feathers are presented in warm shades of green and |yellow, mostly jade. He has never 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 refers to Chomper as "Chomper the Friendly Sharptooth" (a parody of Casper the Friendly Ghost). 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.
- Coincidentally, another character named Guido appeared in the 2006 Disney/Pixar film, Cars. Cars and The Great Day of The Flyers were made the same year.
- Among the Land Before Time characters, Guido is one of three characters to end up in the mouth of a Sharptooth, the other two are Littlefoot and Petrie.
- In his species' protrayal, Guido is depicted eating insects and other invertebrates.
- However though this would an optional diet, ironically in reality Microraptor are predatory animals with their diet consisting of animals such as frogs, fish, mammals and even smaller dinosaurs and pterosaurs, like Ducky and Petrie respectively.
