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

People tend to recall Walace and Grommit once asked about there favourite claymation cartoon. Although the latter has of course a unique quality of it's own it would be just unfair to simply skip "Gogs". The story's are brilliantly simple. It's the use of time and sound that make it so catchy. I will never forget the scene in witch the entire prehistoric and pre-brain family tries to drag a giant (sleeping) bear out of there house (cave). The stupid faces of the characters, the sound of the bears nails on the stone ground and the look of total bewilderment on a passing bird are hilarious. Question is, will this unbearable treatment awake the bear...? Go see for yourself!
