Fred and Dog

Fred the Caveman is a French-Canadian animated series by Antefilms and Tube Studios.

Fred is a caveman living in the Stone Age with his friends, Emma and Max, and his dog... Dog. Together, they take part in the usual daily activities of caveman life, with Fred usually trying (and failing) to get "kissy kissy" from Emma.

The series ran on Teletoon in 2002 for one season.

Fred the Caveman provides examples of:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Fred to Emma.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: Fred and his friends would often encounter dinosaurs on their adventures, which obviously had died out long before humans came into existence.
  • Black Dot Pupils: All the characters had these.
  • Canine Companion: Fred's dog stays by Fred's side no matter how much Fred mistreats him.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Literally. Fred named his dog "Dog".

  • Four-Fingered Hands: All characters had these.
  • Jerkass: Fred isn't a very pleasant person.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: In a couple of episodes, this was Fred's preferred method for hunting.
  • Loincloth: Fred and the other cavemen wear these.
  • Nubile Savage: Emma is very good-looking for a woman in the Stone Age.
  • Robot Dog: Fred built one in one episode after being hit by an intelligence-advancing ray.
