Did they even have any money in Land of the Lost? I’m thinking the economy was more of a first-come-first-served kind of thing. And the Sleestaks were probably the last to get anything since they were as slow as prehistoric molasses, which everyone knows is even slower than modern molasses. I mean, seriously, were these guys (at least I think they were dudes) ever a danger to Will, Holly and their Dad. (Not that we’re so concerned about the Dad after he unceremoniously ditched his kids to high-tail it back to the comforts of modern conveniences — like indoor plumbing and walking in the park without fear of being eaten by a poorly-animated Tyrannosaurus Rex.) I mean, nobody was ever really threatened by these loitering, prehistoric lizard-things with giant gem-like eyes, were they?
WILL: Hey, Holly…we’re here in the Sleestak caverns. Let’s play a card game!
WILL: How about we play War?
HOLLY: That game takes forever. What if the Sleestaks come near?
WILL: That’s OK, we’ll have plenty of time to finish our game.
[ Interlude: poorly-animated herbivore eating plant to signify the passage of time ]
HOLLY: Will! Look out! There’s a Sleestak right behind you!
[ Will rolls his eyes, sighs, gathers the cards, gets up, does some calisthenics, and wanders out of the cave for a bit, then leaves. ]
HOLLY: Whew..that was close!
