Robert Vaughn stars as a white 25-year-old teenage caveman with styled hair who seeks to discover what is in the uncharted jungles beyond his tribe's campsite. It is against the Word (and the Word is the Law), but he breaks it anyway. Soon he discovers a strange creature which kills with its touch. Written by

The fight between two dinosaurs is the same sequence used for Journey to the Center of the Earth, which was released soon after Teenage Cavemen. A baby alligator was fitted with a fake sail-fin crest on its back and it actually was made to fight a small monitor lizard. They really were biting each other and rolling around. See more »
Although they are supposed to be "cave men," the men have combed hair and are cleanly shaven. See more »
It was made in two WEEKS, not two days as someone else's review stated. Please get the facts straight. Read Robert Vaughn's autobiography, he has some choice information about the background of the making of this movie.
Robert Vaughn recalled the filming of it. It took place entirely in Griffith Park in California and the animals involved refused to cooperate. Also, he was sent to the hospital twice. once when an animal bit him, and once when he fell off a log and stepped on broken glass. The glamor of show biz, it is intoxicating.
It was eventually released on a double-bill with the Michael Landon classic.....wait for it....."I Was a Teenage Werewolf."
Oh, Roger Corman, you've done it again!
