Will and Holly struggle to maneuver their newly-built cart through the forest, at least until they find a good reason to get it moving: giant berries, each bigger than their heads. But someone else wants to feast on those too, and soon they find themselves being followed by a clumsy brontosaurus hatchling. Holly names the baby dinosaur Dopey and thinks she can keep him as a pet and teach him to do tricks; it’s only when she also teaches Dopey to pull the heavy cart that her father is convinced that Dopey has a use. But this relatively small “pet” is also defenseless compared to the other dinosaurs, and he could be attracting the wrong kind of attention to the Marshalls’ cave hideout.
Cast: Spencer Milligan (Rick Marshall), Wesley Eure (Will Marshall), Kathy Coleman (Penny Marshall)
