As Rick and Will need to head off on an overnight hike to create a map, Holly, who doesn't want to go, is able to convince her father to let her stay behind at the cave, and without a babysitter in the form of Cha-Ka. Before Rick and Will head off, Will can't help but try to put the fear in his sister by telling her that Zarn will come by to scare her. Zarn, who can control things by his form of telepathy, blames the Marshalls for his predicament of being stuck in the Land of Lost. What Will and Holly are unaware of is that Zarn could hear what Will told Holly. Zarn has also been doing things to cause friction between Cha-Ka and Ta. As such, Cha-Ka stops by the cave to take refuge from Ta. Holly shows if Rick's decision to allow her to stay alone at the cave was a good one as Holly deals with Zarn, and deals with Cha-Ka and Ta's current battle, which Holly believes is all Ta's doing in being a big bully.

The Zarn creature (voiced by Marvin Miller) returns one last time.
Before this, The Zarn had appeared in two of the very best Land Of The Lost episodes: The Zarn and Gravity Storm.
But I am sorry to say that his last guest role in the series, Baby Sitter, only has the good moment or two with The Zarn creature. The episode is frankly rather dull...which may explain why The Zarn never returned to the series.
But the creature, despite being nothing more than a well voiced visual effect, still stands as one of the best sci-fi products of 1970s TV. Maybe The Zarn would have been at home in the first season of Buck Rogers In The 25th Century (1979)?
