Underwater, the non-copyright-infringing non-Jaws music swims with Burton as he stalks a stingray. To the dramatic trumpeting of horns, he successfully spears it, which I don't understand, considering that Rupert and his friends made it very clear that everyone would have starved if not for Rupert, so I don't see how it's possible that Burton could have speared anything for them to eat. I think the stingray must have been inserted with special effects, or possibly it is made of plastic. Back on land, he reveals a bag of several kinds of fish to the women of the tribe, and they all act suitably impressed. Lill actually says, "Oh, big daddy," which is only mildly funny until you notice the look of absolute hate that Darrah shoots her right after she makes this comment, at which point it becomes highly funny. We then get a very interesting shot of what I guess actually is the very cartoonish "face" of the stingray, or at least a very face-like arrangement of gills and air holes. It makes the stingray look like it was part of the stop-action holiday magic of Christmas On The Ocean Floor, starring Freddy the Fisherman and Bippy The Mighty Stingray.
