Give Me a Primitive Man
23 December 2009 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Fleischer's 'Stone Age' series is not much seen these days and the reasons are numerous, but what they mostly come down to is the fact that they are not particularly good. This one, however, is excellent. I attribute much of the pleasure to the handling of the work by animation director Seamus Culhane. He seems to have worked at every animation studio and done an excellent job under every regime. Check out his Woody Woodpecker 'Barber of Seville'.

But a good script is absolutely necessary, and a very good one is provided here. It's a little thinner on the gags than usual for Fleischer, but the best one concerns a stone-age hunter with whom the narrator constantly breaks the fourth wall, as they argue over noises, from the narrator's voice scaring off the quarry to the quality of sound effects. This one is probably the best of the bunch.
