This series is a curiousity, as came 20 years before the Flintstones. Although an interesting idea of spooking modern day life in a prehistoric motif, the series seems to suffer from old fashioned design and unappealing characters both in appearance and personality. This entry takes a look at a stone age version of a baseball game. In some ways this short reminds one of the type of parodies that Tex Avery had started doing at Warner's around this time with funnier gags. The story is basically about a baseball game between the home team and the "Giants," which are literally just that. There are a number os cartoon gags such as the body of a ball player streatching to hug first and second base. The turning pint is when a cheerleader realizes the allergic reaction of one of the team player to her pom-pom made of golden rod. She sticks the pom-pom under the nose of the little home player. He sneezes, and hits a home run. Although the animation is generally good, the story is rather dull and pedestrian.
