The Council of Elders is convened to determine answers to the Great Question of Life, and the answer is found to be Potatoism. Soon it's stake-and-potatoes for Robbie and Earl, when Robbie rejects the Elders' wisdom, and the duo is sentenced to be burned as infidels. A gust of wind extinguishes the fire, and with it dies the dinosaurs' belief in the message of the Great Potato.
