» » Land of the Lost Medusa (1974–1977)

Short summary

While Will, Holly and Cha-Ka are out fishing, Holly, in an outrigger, is swept away on a sudden current. Far downstream, she is saved by a beautiful young woman named Meddy, who is wearing Grecian garb. Rather than go back to the temple while it will soon be dark, Holly is convinced by Meddy to spend the night at her place, which has as its centerpiece a garden filled with stone statues of people, that garden which she calls the garden of eternity. What Holly is unaware of is that the woman is really a Medusa, whose grand plan is to use her as unwitting bait to bring Jack and Will to her, so that she can turn all three into stone to keep as statues in her garden. Meanwhile, Jack, Will and Cha-Ka all see evidence that Holly's situation was orchestrated by someone. When they discover that the creature is a Medusa, they have to figure out a way not only to save Holly and themselves from this situation, but to ensure that Medusa never can come after them again.

In Greek mythology Medusa was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as a winged human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazers upon her hideous face would turn to stone.
