* HotScientist: Among the cast is a rather attractive scientist. At the start of one episode she's in a bikini much to a blushing Phil's embarrassment. ** Yes there was. Her name was Dr. Celia (or Dr. C), and she bore a resemblance to Cro, implying she might be his descendant.

* DownerBeginning: And how. The opening sequence starts off with the main family of cavemen being saved from reoccurring villain, a purple sabertooth tiger, by Phil the Mammoth. Then the ground underneath Phil's feet collapses and he seemingly dies before the eyes of his friends when he plummets to his [[DisneyDeath "death"]]. This is made all the more depressing by that Phil would not be found for thousands of years, so Cro and company never found out that Phil survived and ended their lives never knowing. Then by the time said Mammoth would be reanimated, everything he knew and loved had long since died, though this never is brought up in the actual series. And if that's not not enough for you, the opening theme song is done to the tune of Paul Simon's "Mother and Child Reunion."
