The whole score borrows heavily and even steals from Prokofiev. If you're familiar with Prokofiev's 'October' cantata or can obtain a copy, listen to the movement called 'Victory' and you'll hear virtually note-for-note one of the most extended themes in Land Before Time.
Not that i'm bothered - I love the film and I love Prokofiev so it actually makes me happier to credit him with the score.
