* The French-Belgian movie ''Animation/TheMissingLink'' (known as ''B.C. Rock'' in the US) is the story of the first human born among apemen, and naturally it is set in this era. To be precise, the first scene takes place on May 25th, 196,303 B.C.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode "Marking Time", Scrooge literally travels back to 1 million BC to find a land in which caveducks coexisted with dinosaurs. And yet, this is something of an aversion; after all, dinosaurs did coexist with ancestral ducks. However, it does therefore imply that the DuckUniverse takes place in the Paleocene, which would make sense, since that was a time dominated by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gastornis six-foot birds]].

* The 1950's comic book ''{{Tor}}'' drawn by Joe Kubert. A foreword in the modern collected edition apologetically says "Although it was already known to anyone who cared that men and dinosaurs had never dwelt on Earth at the same time...."

* ''EarthsChildren'' is a fairly well-researched attempt to construct realistic Ice Age cultures and involves clashes between ''Homo sapiens'' and Neanderthals. [[ScienceMarchesOn Science has marched on]] concerning some of the material Jean Auel used, and Ayla and Jondalar's technological inventions can only be believed as allegories for the inventions of multiple generations of RealLife people, but for the most part these books are quite believable and realistic. Their biggest problem is the AnachronismStew of ''Homo sapiens'' material culture, mixing multiple Paleolithic eras together, and arguably the near total lack of ValuesDissonance in the prehistoric ''Homo sapiens'' cultures.

* The {{GURPS}} RPG supplement ''Lands Out Of Time'' introduces the "World of Banded Night" - which is this trope. It includes dinosaurs, cavemen, ape-men, even ''lizard-men'' and the ruins of an ultra-tech civilization.
* The world of Jund in the ''Shards of Alara'' expansion for ''MagicTheGathering'' is pretty clearly based on this trope, though they get away with it by being pure fantasy. Actual dragons replace the dinosaurs, brutal reptilian humanoids lord it over tribes of primitive humans and [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent goblins]], and the land itself is scarred by volcanic rifts where it isn't covered in chokingly dense jungle or festering tar pits.

* In an episode of ''SheepInTheBigCity'', General Specific and Private Public end up here while trying to chase Sheep through time. This being a PostModern show, the first thing they encounter is a sign reading "[[LampshadeHanging Welcome to the most clichéd time portal of all.]]" (which leads Specific to comment "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint We're in [=1970s=] New Jersey?]]").

The days when gruff, thickbrowed club-wielding cavemen and [[NubileSavage sexy cavewomen]] in body-baring [[FurBikini fur teddies]] roamed the earth alongside [[AnachronismStew dinosaurs]]. Most humans were of low intelligence and [[HulkSpeak communicated primarily in grunts]], but this didn't stop them from inventing a sophisticated system of BambooTechnology, most of which incorporated rocks, sinews, and [[DomesticatedDinosaurs small anthropomorphic dinosaurs]] who really didn't seem to mind the fact that they'd been locked under a counter and forced to serve as a primitive garbage disposal for the vast majority of their waking lives. ("[[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones It's a living]]", after all...)

* The 1940 movie ''One Million BC'' and its 1967 remake titled ''{{Film/One Million Years BC}}''. May be the origin of the trope. The 1967 version is chiefly remembered for the mind-blowing sight of RaquelWelch (MsFanservice incarnate) in a FurBikini.
