From the viewpoint of a cro-magnon cave boy named "CRO" and a woolly mammoth named Phil, of living and using science and engineering to resolve problems.
1 November 2015 | by lhicokSee all my reviews

My children (and I) thought this was a wonderful cartoon. Cro, was a cro-magnon boy who somehow became separated from his tribe and ended up living with a family of Neanderthals and an ape-man. Phil is a woolly mammoth, who is part of a pack of very smart mammoths. They teach Cro how to use math, engineering, physics, mechanics, technology, etc...to resolve problem that occur for him and his family. (How to use a fulcrum and lever to lift stuff. Or about how sound waves occur in an episode about creating musical instruments of sorts.) I thought it was very educational, as well as entertaining. We watched it every week, and were really disappointed when it disappeared. We still talk about it today, and explain it to others that say they've never seen it. It is one of our all time favorite cartoons, all of ours. I would love to be able to buy all 26 episodes. I really miss good, non violent cartoons that teach kids while entertaining them. Unfortunately I think this is a bygone era.
