Synopsis for "The Lost World!"
Lorna's friend and guardian M'Tuba has been stung by the rare Morta plant that has a deadly poison that will kill him in a matter of hours.

When they learn that the only place where the Morta plant can be found is in a place the locals call the Lost World, but nobody knows where it exists. However despite the warnings from the medicine man that there are dangerous beasts in the Lost World, Lorna and Greg are determined to find it in order to cure their dying friend.
Searching for the Lost World, the pair come across a giant condor that swoops down at them. When Greg tries to shoot it, Lorna stops him then uses a lasso to rope up the bird, pointing out that it must have come from the Lost World and they can ride it when it flies back home. The condor does just that and they are soon attacked by a sabertoothed lion, easily defeating it. However, this attack is witnessed by Gau the caveman who rules over the Lost World. Gau calls upon the other animals and leads them on a charge to stop Lorna and Greg.
Meanwhile the pair have found the skull shaped Morta plants and removes one from it's stocks. When Gau attacks then, Lorna stabs him with the teeth like thorns of the plant, poisoning him. This puts Gau into a coma and the animals immediately stop their charge. Since they are intruders into Gau's land, Lorna uses some of the plants juice to cure him and they then leave on the same condor that flew them there. Returning to the medicine man's hut, Lorna applies the antidote to M'Tuba, curing him of his illness.
