Gronk (Joe E. Ross) lies gravely ill in the family cave as the dinosaur hunt is set to begin. Boss (Cliff Norton) acts as witch doctor and performs a dance with no results. Gronk's daughter Mlor (Mary Grace) informs stranded astronauts Mac (Frank Aletter) and Hector (Jack Mullaney) who check Gronk out medically to find nothing wrong with him. Mac determines he is faking. Boss calls out Gronk, making Gronk's wife Shad (Imogene Coca) stand up to Boss and throw dust at him threatening to turn him into a monkey. When Boss leaves, Gronk feels better. Boss goes to the lagoon to wash off the dust. A monkey in the jungle scoops up Boss' clothes and Clon (Mike Mazurki) think Boss has indeed turned into a monkey. Clon takes the monkey back to Mrs. Boss (Kathleen Freeman) who insists Shad turn it back into Boss. Meanwhile, Boss falls into a deep pit in the jungle. Now Shad must dance to stall her imposing execution.
I feel it's an uninspiring episode with nothing very funny, nor even amusing. It's another plot that's been reused from previous episodes. By my count, it's the 11th time in the first 17 episodes where the story revolves around someone (10 of 11 times the astronauts) trying to stall execution from Boss.
