Can any of the descendants of Gilberto Martinez Solares sue Hanna-Barbera for copying many of the gags thrown into this movie? Examples: Newspapers made of stone. Bowling with stones. Eating pterodactyls, and so forth.

See this movie and amaze of a Mexican comedy that 10 years before established those gags that everybody enjoy on the Flintstones.

The plot is simple. What if caveman had found a potion to sleep for thousand years? A group of archaeologist find a cave with a completely preserved caveman inside, Triki-tran from about ten thousand years. Triki-tran is a skinny but smart hunter of a tribe of caveman that just had arrived at volcanic central México. His tribe worship the god of fire and hate the god of water, hence they doesn't bate! While his comrade Traka-tran is hunting a dinosaur, Triki-tran found a lovely cave-girl name Jade from the rival tribe, that bate and hence worship the god of water, and of course fell in love with her and want to marry her caveman style. Traka-tran also wants this girl so convince the tribe leaders that Triki-tran is a protected of the god of water and since it was send to set peace with the other tribe by marrying with their chief's daughter. This sets the plot and continues even in the modern age with Triki-tran learning to speak Spanish and dance. Hilarious from start to finish. Tip: Watch out the dust that raises when the fire tribe salutes each other...a sign that you are from the fire tribe!!!
