Scenes from various episodes are interspersed with pitches by paleontologist Sir David Tushingham that try to lure customers into the glamorous, high-paying world of paleontology by getting them to buy the Famous Paleontologists' Home Study Course. In true informercial style, there's a deal-a-dinosaur wheel and comedic testimonials from satisfied customers. The episode serves as a sequel to the second season clip show, appropriately titled "The Clip Show."
