They come up with the idea of two pelicans holding food in their beaks to fly them so that they can eat while flying.

They manage to chase away the dinosaur by tickling his feet and making him fall over. When he falls over it knocks a lot of fruit out of the trees and they take the boys there to brag about how they also could get a lot of fruit. When they get there, a Scoopisnootus is gathering up the food and it convinces the boys and girls that they both need to stay at the clubhouse.

The Cave Kids find a trunk with instruments inside. They decide they can have some fun playing the instruments and at the same time the owner of the trunk might hear them and can come back and claim it. Instead, they attract a bunch of animals. The Cave Kids hide in a tree and figure out that each animal attracted makes a noise like one of the instruments. They use the hollow tree like a megaphone and call for help. The owners of the instruments, a circus that uses the instruments to attract animals for the circus, show up to rescue them and thank the Cave Kids for their help. To reward them they give them a special show, including lots of free food!
