Rick and Holly are glad to see that Dopey has seemed to have made himself at home with the other brontosaurus in the swamp, and that they in general are safe since Grumpy doesn't seem to like the water. Later, Will and Holly enlist Dopey's help in carting berries back to the cave when they run into the Pakuni, Cha-Ka who follows them home. They decide to let Cha-Ka stay for their special dinner, which consists of a chicken which Rick found in their trap. They try to teach Cha-Ka human table manners, but Cha-Ka, in addition to being interested in the food, is interested in the perfume that Holly has just started wearing. The next day, after which Cha-Ka has spent the night with them in the cave, Holly goes out to collect water for breakfast. Her perfume ends up causing problems for her as she runs into Ta and Sa, who are as intrigued by the perfume as Cha-Ka was. What's worse is that it also attracts the attention of Grumpy.

Primal Sexuality!
21 January 2011 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

Actually, the previous title is more fitting for this one. Under the veneer of kiddie fun, this episode is a beautiful exploration of primal sexuality. After a month or so away from home, eleven year-old Holly stakes out her sexual turf, putting on makeup and perfume for the younger Cha-Ka. Mayhem follows as Cha-ka's brothers and even Grumpy the T-rex, react to the perfume. Ta and Sa kidnap Holly, to sniff themselves into orgasmic ecstasy. The real reason the show was canceled? The writers couldn't much longer avoid the episode where Uncle Jack walks in on Holly and Cha-Ka doing it pakuni-style. Think about the dynamics...a total population of five males and one female. Realistically, how long do you think it would have been before brother or dad slid over to Holly in the middle of the night? Don't be childish, you know it's true.
