Synopsis: A tranquil evening in the jungles of the valley is shattered by a stampede of dinosaurs, fleeing from an unknown assailant. Devil and Moon Boy are roused to go investigate, but they are downed by a large rock thrown from out of nowhere. Against the reflection of a distant volcano, Moon Boy makes out the phantom image of a triceratops that walks like a man!

The next morning, Moon Boy pads into the valley to size up the threat and discovers a giant man, wearing a headdress made out of a triceratops skull, mixing it up with a bunch of dinosaurs. He can't figure out why the giant is in such a rage, but figures he should go get Devil involved. On his way back to his friend, Moon Boy is snatched by the paw of a creature hiding in a nearby bush.

Devil wanders through the valley looking for his primate pal when he comes upon the trail of defeated dinos. Soon, he makes his way to the giant, who is in an apoplectic rage. The two square off....

Meanwhile, Moon Boy has been captured by the son of the giant, Ruka, Jr., and is being treated as a pet. Moon Boy escapes from the precocious child and finds Devil, who has just beaten the boy's father and is watching him drown in a lake.

Moon Boy commands his friend to save Ruka, since he is now aware of what is really going on. Ruka is pulled from the water and takes note of the nobility of the crimson dinosaur, then grabs his snotty, incorrigible little boy and bends him over his knee, spanking him! Then, the pair take their leave of the valley and return home.
