Mutt and Nod, voiced by Jeff Bennett and Scott Menville, are characters in the Land Before Time series. They are the tertiary antagonists of The Land Before Time III: The Time of the Great Giving. They later turned-supporting protagonists later in the film. They are the friends of Hyp. They later make a return in TV series episode The Great Egg Adventure.
They are a pair of adolescent Muttaburrasaurus and Nodosaurus. they serve as Hyp's lackeys and generally follow his lead. Like Hyp, their names consist of the first part of their individual species' names although they may also be a reference to their personalities: "Mutt" is like a loyal but unintelligent dog while "Nod" mindlessly agrees with everything Hyp says.
They first appear alongside Hyp when the trio interrupt a game Littlefoot, Cera, Petrie, Ducky and Spike are playing, taking away their rock. They run away with Hyp when a meteor shower occurs. During chasing Littlefoot and his friends from telling the grown ups that they found water Mutt also accidentally call a wasp a dummy causing it to chase them away. Throughout the film the pair assist Hyp in his schemes and ultimately accompany him into the Mysterious Beyond to look for water. Initially the two are hesitant, and point out that Hyp is just as scared as them because like them he ran away from the meteors. He simply retorts he just didn't want them to feel stupid, and taunts them for their caution. Not wanting to be perceived as babies they go with him.
When Hyp becomes stuck in a tar pit and pleads for help, Mutt and Nod prove incapable of assisting him, due to arguing over which one of them must save him. It is therefore Littlefoot and the others who save Hyp, and not his friends. After this, when Fast Biters attack, Mutt and Nod run away and make fun of Hyp's father for risking his neck, prompting Hyp to force the pair to assist him and the others in pushing boulders down upon the sharptooth.
The pair returns in The Great Egg Adventure. The pair are back and still doing whatever Hyp tells them, including helping out Littlefoot in moving Fast Biter eggs away from the Great Valley. They split into different teams, with Hyp assisting Littlefoot, while Nod goes with Ducky and Petrie and Mutt with Chomper. They succeed in getting the eggs safely to a location picked out by Chomper.
