After the themeEdit

Bubble Puppy is playing with his squeaky bone toy and decides to bury it.

Later, Nonny comes across it and tries to get a closer look, as he thought it was a bone belonging to a dinosaur but he leaves for class soon after. He then explains to the others what he found, then asks Mr. Grouper to come and see it, as he really wishes it to be a dinosaur bone but has no idea if it's real or not. It's soon revealed to be a toy, Bubble Puppies!

Nonny is pretty disappointed, hoping they would have found a dinosaur skeleton there. Prompting Oona to ask what a skeleton is.After she is informed about the skeleton, Mr. Grouper explains that those who study dinosaurs can get a general idea regarding a dinosaurs appearance by studying the skeleton. Causing Oona to then ask what dinosaurs look like.

Mr. Grouper then teaches them the common types of dinosaurs before Gil then sings a song!

Shop SketchEdit

Deema then begins a restaurant that serves only dinosaurs! Oona brings her T-rex and it is given meat. Goby brings his Apotosauras and it's given vegetables.

Mr. Grouper decides it must be Lunchtime!

Molly and GilEdit

Molly comes by to see Gil pouring syrup all over a huge plate of pancakes. Molly tries to tell him that dinosaurs no longer are around but he hears roaring and quickly grabs Molly and yanks her behind the bottle of syrup. It's then Oona comes over and roars cutely, then goes on to comment on how yummy the pancakes look. She then hides when Gil and Molly come out to see if the dinosaur is still there. Oona then slowly comes from behind the bottle of syrup and surprises Gil! This causes him to fall and land onto the syrup covered pancakes and roll away nearby while asking Molly if she got to see it.

Class TimeEdit

While the guppies play, they all pretend to be dinosaurs. Mr. Grouper asks Nonny about them and Nonny claims to be a paleontologist before Deema asks him what that is. Nonny explains that a Paleontologist studies dinosaur bones. Mr. Grouper adds that there are many ways to study dinosaurs before Deema begins to sing!

Story TimeEdit

The guppies go outside to play, Gil and Oona pretend to be "Tricerra-cops"! Beginning their story as they drive and soon come across a baby dinosaur who can't find her mommy. They promise to help when suddenly a T-Rex shows up and they quickly drive away with the baby. Gil sees tracks and says they should follow them until coming by 3 different trails. Thinking that the mommy left one of them, Oona suggests that the mom's footprint would resemble the baby's foot and they head on the right trail. But T-Rex shows up again!

Oona and Gil once again drive away until they are once again led to the T-Rex! But it's then they realize that it's the mommy! They finish their mission, ending the story.

Molly and Gil 2Edit

Molly talks about mommies and daddies when Oona comes hopping by using a dinosaur foot to leave tracks. She roars as Gil follows them and Molly only shrugs it off, saying she did try to tell him before Nonny comes by to tell them about their field trip.

Field TripEdit

Mr. Grouper takes the guppies on a field trip to a dinosaur dig site where they meet his friend, Professor Sherman, who then shows them what a dinosaur footprint. Meaning that a real dinosaur had walked that very spot a very long time ago. They begin to dig but can't find a single thing and soon realize that the entire day was wasted...

Nonny is disappointed but the Professor tells him that it can take a pretty long while for someone to find anything. The guppies decide to leave when Nonny takes a moment to look once more until Oona urges him to come with them, since they're leaving.

Mr. Grouper tells Nonny that he may become a paleontologist one day and discover an entire dinosaur skeleton as Deema comments on how dirty this job is while trying to wipe the dust from her hands. Suddenly, Nonny sneezes! So loudly a rock behind him suddenly falls apart which reveals a skeleton!

Professor Sherman shows up and congratulates Nonny, but he doesn't know what happened until Oona tells him to look. He then turns to see the Triceratops skeleton he accidentally unearthed before Oona hands him a microphone and Nonny begins to sing a song as the episode comes to an end...

Final Molly and Gil ActEdit

Molly is still surprised that Nonny found an entire skeleton of a dinosaur as Gil thinks he is very close to finding the dinosaur he's been chasing the entire episode. Molly tries to tell him once again that it isn't a real dinosaur as Oona slowly sneaks behind Gil but he won't listen and rushes off instead out of panic, worried that the dinosaur will get him. Oona has gone to her normal self, calm and cute as Gil tries to warn her torun away from the dinosaur. But when he slowly realizes it was her, she roars again!

Gil then passes out as Molly makes a small joke and both girls giggle.


Nonny: I'm very disappointed.
