Series cast summary:
Aaron LaPlante ...  Spear / ... 10 episodes, 2019-2020


From the mind of Genndy Tartakovsky, the visionary creator behind the Emmy® award-winning series Samurai Jack, comes a new tale that follows a caveman at the dawn of evolution as he forms an unlikely friendship with an almost extinct dinosaur. With suspense, heartbreak, excitement, love and fear all without a single word of dialogue, the series is a painting come to life, relying solely on music and graphic imagery to tell the story of two unlikely allies as they navigate through a treacherous world. After bonding over unfortunate tragedies, they seem to become each other's only hope of survival against a common enemy.

Excellent non verbal Primal
11 October 2019 | by sscialliSee all my reviews

In the 1970's Marvel Comics ran a series of comics in its own series called Devil Dinosaur, it was about a intelligent verbal primate who saved a dinosaur similar to the one here , only red hence the name, and the minute they bonded was sparked to the memory of the characters in the comic and this screamed in my head the joys from the pages into an awesome animation spectacle which is so richly done! Two species fighting for their lives and each other bound by circumstance created in such a way that entertaining , powerful and richly drawn with rich hues of saturated prime colors. I'm going to be saddened knowing it will end. Since the days of Dexters Lab to Samurai Jack i have enjoyed the creators style, this I hope brings more for us to enjoy on the fringe. Thank You Mr. Tartakovsky for your stellar work.
