* On ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' there was the "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer" who was unfrozen and became a sophisticated modern man. But whenever he needed to win something he'd pull out the "I'm just a [[SimpleCountyLawyer simple unfrozen caveman]] who is confused by your modern world".

* Averted with Jeffrey Brown's ''Lucy & Andy Neanderthal'' series of children's graphic novels. The Neanderthal characters are depicted based on actual research of what Neanderthals were like and the ending of the first book and the upcoming second book show them dealing with the arrival of and living with humans.

* The cavemen that the college students are turned into in the ''Series/{{Buffy|TheVampireSlayer}}'' episode "Beer Bad" are like this, though in this case it was the result of a punitive magic spell and thus no one was trying for scientific accuracy. In contrast, the First Slayer, as seen in "Restless", was physically like a modern human and could speak.

[[ScienceMarchesOn As newer research]] reveal that Neanderthals ''could'' speak and were capable of some more sophisticated customs (like funerals and memorial places), the "cavemen" in this particular Buffy episode resemble ''Homo Erectus'' more than the Neanderthal stock.

* Ugg the caveman from the 1980s (1960s?) HannaBarbara series WesternAnimation/DinoBoy played this straight. However, the Lost Valley contains many strange hominids, from the Treemen (which are even ''more'' [[FrazettaMan ape-like]] than Ugg is, complete with tails) to more modern-human like beings, such as the Bird Riders and the Wolf People.

** Interesting in that modern humans would fill the Elves' role, being thin and (compared to Neanderthals) extremely gracile. We also exhibited a higher degree of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoteny neoteny]], so perhaps we would have seemed creepily alluring. The fact that on occasion we killed (and maybe even butchered and ate) Neanderthals pushes us into TheFairFolk territory.

* "Caveman Cortez", one of the NPC ''luchadors'' in [[HeroSystem Lucha Libre Hero]], has the stereotypical Neanderthal look. Subverted in that he's also a licensed private investigator.

* Mercilessly exploited in one of the episodes of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', where the activated experiment of the day, #210, creates chaos across Hawaii by reverting everything to a more primitive state: cell phone to early 19th century telephone, car into Victorian station wagon, yacht into ice-age canoe, tiger into saber-toothed tiger, elephant into mammoth etc. Obviously when Nani's human friends are affected, they turn into burly, hairy neanderthal women who walk in a hunched manner and speak mainly in grunts.

* Averted in the "Longhair and Doubledome" shorts on ''[[WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow The Cartoon Cartoon Show]]''. The title characters were a pair of wisecracking Cro-magnons who considered themselves smarter than their hulking Neanderthal neighbors.
