What cartoon is this?

Asked by weeveeship (4619points) September 9th, 2010

I used to watch this cartoon in the early nineties. Some details:

1. The show had two cavemen or “primitive-looking characters.” One was fat and one was skinny.
2. One of the cavemen (I think the skinny one) had a bad temper.
3. The show was not the Flintstones.

Captain Caveman?

No, but thanks anyways. Captain Caveman is from the 1980s. The show I’m thinking of is from the 1990s.

Prometheus and Bob

Doesn’t look like it. The show had traditional animation, not clay animation.

The only other I remember is Hairy Jeremy. I think that that is from the 90’s cos I know I watched it.

Goddamn it. I can picture it in my brain – and I can’t think of it either. This is annoying.

I’m thinking of something that looks almost like a Far Side cartoon, but it was a show. But it wasn’t the “Tales from the Far Side”, either.

A google search led me to Gogs this Sorry if I’m being no use.

Okay, here is a possibility:

The Slag Brothers from Wacky Races

The only other thing I can think of isn’t a cartoon, but a comic strip: “B.C.”

@Seek_Kolinahr – I thought of B.C. first thing, too….

@Seek_Kolinahr Come to think about it, the show did look a bit like Far Side or B.C. It was cartoony, drawn in the traditional cartoon (e.g. think Bugs Bunny or even Flintstones). It was not clay animated (like Wallace and Gromit or Gumby).

Cro might be a possibility, I’m not sure, but the opening only showed one caveman, not two.

More details I just thought of:
The time frame of airing is some time between 1990 and 1995
I live in the US, so the show must have been shown in the US
It was not anime

I have no idea, but I wonder if looking at this list might jog anyone’s memory:

From the wiki page

Cro was a fully-evolved 11-year-old Cro-Magnon boy. Cro lives with the Neanderthals and is the smartest one, which was the reason most of the characters hated him.

Ogg: The big show-off of the Neanderthals, Ogg was the leader and bossed everyone around. He gets into arguments with Nandy and once forced Bobb out of the tribe, causing everyone to leave Ogg all alone (with the exception of Gogg[2], the others came back to him because they thought he felt lonely). Ogg’s phrases include: “In cases like this, only one thing to say: <something>” and “We gonna die,” which is often used by other Neanderthals; Gogg said it once and Nandy said it too, but Ogg told her that it was his line. According to “Play It Again, Cro…Not!” Ogg claims to have a brilliant singing voice.

It might be Cro but the characters in the opening don’t seem familiar to me.

Anyways, I just spoke to my friend who I used to watch the show with. She does not remember the name of the show either but gave me some more details:
*Show was a television series
*Show aired in Hawaii around 1993–1996
*There were many dinosaurs in the show
*The show might be anime (Asian channel, according to my friend)
*The two cavemen were brothers, the older one was thin with a bad temper, the younger one was fat
*There were no other cavemen or families of cavemen
*Both cavemen were young to middle-aged (not elderly)
*The show was funny

Hope these details are useful.

I Racked my brain for a few minutes cuz I knew exactly what Show you were talking about. It came to me the show was “The Terrible Thunderlizards” it was a part of the Eek the Cat show. It ran from 1993–1997. The Cavemen were Bill and Scooter and they were being “hunted” by Merc Dinos.

Hope this Helped !!
