On a trip through the jungle, Jungle Jim (Johnny Weissmuller) and his son Skippy (Martin Huston) stumble upon the camp of Marilyn (Helene Marshall) and her gravely injured scientist companion John (Art Millan), who needs immediate medical assistance which Jim is fortunately able to provide. Things are worse than they seem though because John seems to have been attacked by a giant lizard, and while he managed to get away from the lizard, his companion Charles (Paul Guilfoyle), Marilyn's brother, is still in the land of the giant lizards, where John and Charles, two scientists wanted to ... well, study something or other.

Jim promises to go and snatch Charles from the clutches of the lizards, and Marilyn insists on accompanying him, while Skippy decides to sneak after them, just to see if the big dinosaur's are real.

The land of lizards proves to be full of threats - mainly dinosaur footage from One Million B.C., actually -, and our heroes are never far from a dinosaur attacks. Eventually, Skippy manages to catch up with his dad and Marilyn, but almost falls prey to a dinosaur doing so and needs some saving from his father. Then the three of them bump into Charles, hide in a cave from a bit dinosaur attack - then though the local volcano breaks out, washes all the dinosaurs from the face of the earth, and our heroes are saved ...

 

Well, this is not really a milestone of 1950's television: Johnny Weissmuller seems wooden, Martin Huston as his son and his chimp are a bit annoying, and the story is simplistic and lacks any real buildup - but then again, everything that contains the corny dinosaur footage from One Million B.C. is at least some fun. And that's what this is, basically, some fun (not more).
