Geico's Cavemen May Get Own TV Series
Mar 3, 2:39 PM EST

The Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Those Geico "cavemen" shouldn't be so upset after all ó they may get their own television series. ABC said Friday it had ordered a pilot for a comedy, tentatively titled "Cavemen," that features the characters used in a series of ads by the insurance company.

In the ads, cavemen appear insulted by a Geico pitchman's claim that the company's Web site is so easy to use that "even a caveman can do it."

The potential series, one of 14 pilots that will be produced by Touchstone Television this spring, features the cavemen as they "struggle with prejudice on a daily basis as they strive to live the lives of normal thirty-somethings in 2007 Atlanta."

It's unusual for characters from an advertising campaign to move into shows of their own, but not unprecedented. The CBS comedy "Baby Bob" featured a talking baby that had been used in several advertisements, according to Daily Variety.

The advertising copywriter who helped create the "cavemen" ads is writing the pilot, the studio said.

A pilot order is no guarantee a show will make it on the air; in fact, the majority of pilots don't make it that far.

First off, I'm not 100% in love with your tone...

First, let me say thanks to all my fellow posters at After The Bar Closes.  Even though I am a Neandertal, and they are only "little people",  I can count on them to cover my back, should the UD Forces Of Darkness, attack me.   I can always count on my friends at ATBC to beat down Austalopithicine-brained DaveScot whenever he needs it.  Which in always.  

So even though I am now such a Total 100% Star, bigger than you could dream, I want you all to visit me in Hollywood.  My cave is your cave amigos!

We'll have your favorite Roast Duck With Mango Salsa once again, enjoy some more Guiness' and BEAT-DOWN  UD.  

ps - Kris, baby, don't forget that "special screen-test" we've got coming up for you!  Yowrrrllll

pps:  No, sorry, don't bring Bill.  We're trying to do a class operation here, and his constant whining and sniveling just doesn't cut it, you know?  I think he's really more cut out for a Spanish Inquisistion role, don't you think?

Ciao

And don't forget to visit me in my crib.

No man, we are NOT all extinct!  However, because we are such lovers of art and beauty, we are very sensitive, and as a result we are all in therapy, because of your constantly stereotyping us as nothing but brutes and "dumb cavemen".  

The only thing good about you "Homos" is your women. For some reason, they tend to like us, and I guess we're just like you, you know, we can only "do it" @ 10 - 12 times a night before we have to roll over in the cave.

You must be a quick guy. The night isn't long enough to do it 10+ times (even midwinter).

I wonder is that's an evolutionary advantage or disadvantage?

Oh, this link is justgreat  Yeah.  Continue the stereotype, please.  

What?  It's just not bad enough that "even a caveman can do it?"  is all over the place?  Now you have to perpetuate the other myth, that allcavemen prefer Big Butts?

Well, just so you know, the last Cro-Magnon to make a "joke" about Cavemen being stupid was Jerry Falwell.  You may have heard of him.  Yeah.  Just so you know.

You mean the Jimmy Castor bunch was wrong, all those years ago?

What we're gonna do right here is go back, way back, back into time.
When the only people that existed were troglodytes...cave men...
cave women...Neanderthal...troglodytes. Let's take the average
cave man at home, listening to his stereo. Sometimes he'd get up,
try to do his thing. He'd begin to move, something like this:
"Dance...dance".

When he got tired of dancing alone, he'd look
in the mirror: "Gotta find a woman gotta find a woman gotta find a
woman gotta find a woman". He'd go down to the lake where all the
woman would be swimming or washing clothes or something. He'd look
around and just reach in and grab one. "Come here...come here".
He'd grab her by the hair. You can't do that today, fellas, cause
it might come off. You'd have a piece of hair in your hand and she'd
be swimming away from you (ha-ha). This one woman just lay there,
wet and frightened. He said: "Move...move". She got up. She was a
big woman. BIG woman. Her name was Bertha. Bertha Butt.
She was one of the Butt sisters.

He didn't care. He looked up at her and said:
"Sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me
sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me!". She looked down on him.
She was ready to crush him, but she began to like him. She said
(falsetto):
"I'll sock it to ya, Daddy". He said: "Wha?". She said (falsetto):
"I'll sock it to ya, Daddy". You know what he said? He started it way
back then. I wouldn't lie to you. When she said (falsetto)
"I'll sock it to ya, Daddy" he said "Right on! Right on! Hotpants!
Hotpants! Ugh...ugh...ugh"

Well, clearly this is a situation that I would like to be kept abreast of.  Careful examination and experimentation of the subjects will be required, and of course, true satisfaction can only be achieved through penetration to the deepest depths, and not until the final thrust can this be brought to it's final, satisfactory conclusion.

Whew!  It's times like these that I really wish I still smoked.

Great catch Henry - I forgot about that, and as long as Kristine is hanging out in the Galpagos, I can say that she's in the running for the perfect woman then, and get away with it!

Anybody out there catch the second show?  My son had a baseball game last night, so I missed it!  

Any comments on the first show?

Is the TV audience reaction just another example of Neandertal Hate by Sapiens?

Anymore good lines? -  First shows best line:  Keep your penus in your genus.
