While on a routine fossil-hunting expedition, the Zula Patrol turns up evidence that the villainous Deliria Delight has been travelling back in time to Earth’s prehistoric past to illegally dump her company’s toxic trash.

The Zula Patrollers must find and catch her, before her actions cause catastrophic consequences.

In the process, our heroes learn all about the formation and development of Earth, and the life forms who call it home.

The Zula Patrol is a brilliant TV show for all ages, and this dome show lives up to the original. Following a similar format to the episodes of Season 2 and 3, Deliria is forced to pick up the trash she dumped by Captain Bula and the rest of the Zula Patrol. After that, Cloid gives her an idea to dump her trash in the past. Luckily, the Zula Patrol find evidence and they head off to find it, but not before some educational messages by the Patrol about fossils. Soon we see Zeeter has a time machine that was packed in her toolbelt. After all the trash gets cleaned up, they find out about one problem, a giganotosaurus on a rampage.... Once everything gets solved, we get a lesson from Multo about the dinosaurs and then the credits roll. Overall, I think this is a perfect addition to the Zula Patrol universe and a good watch if you can find it at your local planetarium.

Fun show for younger audiences. Good tie in to environmental science for young students.
