The information presented on the prehistoric era in the series' first episode has been based on thoroughly outdated, early 20th century theories, and has been overturned by scientific advancements just after the series had aired. Among other inaccuracies, it depicts herbivorous dinosaurs as swamp dwellers, proposes the completely unsubstantiated idea that carnivorous dinosaurs were afraid of water, and claims that crocodiles descended from dinosaurs. One of the more forward-thinking theories presented is the now-accepted fact that birds came from dinosaurs, even though the animation shows Archaeopteryx (long regarded as the "first bird") descending from generic thecodonts instead of dinosaurs (the term "thecodont" is, by the way, not in use anymore).

An unforgettable animated series from our childhood. The very cheerful introducing song and pictures, with a fish disturbingly evolving into a lizard and on into a chimp and finally becoming a man, made us stare at it in amazement. I find the series greatly encouraged the intellectual excitement and imagination of the children in Europe of the late 70s and early 80s for the extraordinary events and stories told in the cartoons.
The plot of the stories with five-six recurring and distinctive characters quarreling with each other made the cartoons attractive to the eyes of the little ones. The weird storyteller with a long white beard and the clock that could speak rendered the pictures all the more enticing.
To sum up, it struck a chord in our generation, with its colourful, cheerful and optimistic images and tunes.
