It all started with us. The cavemen. Since day one, our people have always been where the action is. Sure, not front and center, but if you’re enjoying your modern civilization, you might want to send us a little thank-you notice. We’re not that hard to find. We’re right here beside you.

Inspired by the Geico Insurance commercials, Cavemen takes a look at life through the eyes of three modern cavemen as they journey through the world. Joel, Nick and Andy are contemporary cavemen living in suburbia trying to be ordinary men leading ordinary lives. As they try to assimilate into modern world, Nick begins to feel like society will never fully accept them, Andy goes with the flow, and Joel finds himself torn between tradition and modern life.
Episodes 7-12 aired on Seven, Australia starting July 9th, 2008.
