Storyline

Grungy, in-your-face claymation comedy about a family of cavemen in prehistorical times, as they struggle to survive in a dangerous world, armed only with their wits - or half of them, anyway. The characters are seen involved in awkward, uncomfortable or plain stupid activities. Grandpa's solution to everything is to hit it on the head with his club; Mother has no idea how to look after her baby; and they all indulge in bodily functions in public. Watch them as they fight dinosaurs, discover fire and lose it again immediately, and, of course, hit each other on the head with clubs. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Claymation for the post-pub generation
15 February 2007 | by (Adrift in the Roaring Forties, Oz) – See all my reviews

Bodily fluids, slapstick violence, toilet humour and dinosaurs. Gogs was simply brilliant.

10min episodes each containing two short 5min stories, shown at odd times as fillers on BBC television in the early 90s. I never get tired of watching Gogs, and it still makes me laugh - the clay figures lend themselves wonderfully to cartoon violence and exaggerated expressions. The plot lines, such as they were, revolved around an ordinary family of cavemen dealing with ordinary issues - dinosaurs, bears, earthquakes and.... er... horrible snotty colds.

Basically, if you like Tom & Jerry - you'll love Gogs. And if you're a parent, you'll get a huge laugh out of the hideous, manipulative, vomiting, crapping baby.
