** Was originally going to be the fourth collaboration between Creator/AardmanAnimations and [=DreamWorks=], with Creator/JohnCleese writing the screenplay (he gets a story credit in the final film) about the discovery of fire. However, Aardman cut ties towards the end of ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'''s production after getting fed up with [=DreamWorks=]' ExecutiveMeddling. They've since taken a second crack at a caveman movie with ''[[http://media.aintitcool.com/media/uploads/2015/merrick/earlymanposter_large.jpg Early Man]]''.

* DevelopmentHell: After Aardman and Creator/DreamWorks parted ways, the story was kicked around DWA for a number of years and seemingly went nowhere until Creaotr/ChrisSanders came on board, but only agreed to helm it after directing ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon''.
* StillbornFranchise: [=DreamWorks=] had high hopes that this film would be their next ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'', with a number of sequels and spinoffs, after having a slight financial lag in the early 2010s, but the tie-in prequel cartoon didn't get the response they wanted and plans for a sequel proper were canceled.
