Alternate title: Rubble Without a Cause.
Vaughn stars as a 35-year-old teenage caveman with styled hair who seeks to discover what is in the uncharted jungles beyond his tribe's campsite. It is against the Word (and the Word is the Law), but he breaks it anyway. Soon he discovers a strange creature that kills with its touch. We later learn that this is not a prehistoric tale, but a post-apocalyptic tale, and the strange creature is a 500-plus year old irradiated scientist in a radiation suit.
This film was remade as a made-for-cable movie in 2002. 
Prologue: Joel and the Bots are bored out of their minds during a rainstorm.
Segment One (Invention Exchange): Rainy day ipecacs: Crow’s is chocolate milk + pickle juice, Tom’s is circus peanuts + warm strawberry Quik + a punch in the stomach, and Joel’s is Lucky Charms + cherry Nyquil. Dr. F and Frank start fighting for some unknown reason.
Segment Two: "Catching Ross." Joel and the Bots produce their own version of Catching Trouble with Ross as the tormented prey.
Segment Three: Dr. F and Frank are still fighting while Joel shows the Bots a history of Technology. This bores them to sleep. Technology's greatest achievement? The Flying Nun.
Segment Four: Examining the pendulum of human development.
Segment Five: Crow and Tom Servo mimic the film's end. Joel reads a slimy letter and Dr. F and Frank patch things up with some General Foods International Coffee and a viewing of the Jack Lemmon opus Dad
Stinger: The Teenage Caveman runs smack dab into a tree and conks his head.
