This is an interesting new take on everyone's favorite Stone Age Family. It begins at a museum in the present day, where children are looking at a frozen caveman on display. The curator explains he's from the first civilization from 100,000 years ago, in Bedrock. Then, we go in the past and meet the familiar characters.
Basically, it seems like everyone is just going along and being civilized because they are supposed to. Fred keeps on complaining about having to work two jobs to pay for all the junk they don't need. It's exemplified when two Neanderthals start working for Mr. Slate at the quarry and have no concept of money-and end up leaving after one of them is killed on the job. Wilma, on the other hand, feels like she has to be an artist and is frustrated by her paintings of hands. Also, the animals that run the technology are always, understandably, complaining, such as the baby mammoth that's locked in a closet, alone, when he's not being used as a vacuum. But perhaps one of the more disturbing aspects is the origin of Barney and Betty's adopted son, Bam Bam.
While the characters are familiar it's injected with enough "reality" to make it a bit uncomfortable. Highly recommended.
