Shung The Terrible
Jungle Girl is the fourth episode of the Land of the Lost (1991 TV series).
An alignment of the Land's three moons causes all the denizens, including Stink and Tasha, to head in a stampede towards "The Valley of Death". There, they will fall over a high mountain precipice to their deaths, in the vast boneyard below.
The Porters and Christa race to save their friends from this terrible fate, even as Tom Porter seeks to learn more about Christa's past, and her early life in San Francisco. Christa dismisses her memories of Earth as "just dreams", but Tom suspects she came to the Land of the Lost the same way his family did.
Tom theorizes that the alignment of the moons is "warping the light rays" in the sky and causing the valley-wide trance. He suggests the dinosaurs emerged from an ancient ocean that once existed at the bottom of the valley, and somehow the light induces them to return there.
In the end the Porters use their car, and break the eclipse spell by honking the horn and stopping the stampede.
