Cobra yanks a Joe intelligence satellite - and the valuable data in its memory banks - out of orbit, only to have it crash in an unexplored region of the African interior. Now itís a race between the Joes and Cobra to locate the satellite first. But an unexpected obstacle stands in the way of both sides: a savage tribe of proto-humans, the missing link between man and ape, who, ignored by evolution, have dwelled in this jungle for millions of years! [Note: The episode synopsis included an exclamation mark in the title, which was not seen in the title card]
The Primorts' word "ortho" may be a shortening for the one person every
kid with a sweet tooth fears: the orthodontist.

Movie Clip: Flint and the other Joes arrive and direct their collective
firepower at the boulders and pound the rocks into dust. In the aftermath,
Flint rushes toward Lady Jaye and confesses, "I - I was worried." Leaning
close to him, she replies, "That doesnít exactly make me unhappy, you know?"

use an unbiased arbitrator to solve the dispute.
