Herbie's teacher says that cavemen were stupid, but Herbie disagrees. An actor thinks cavemen had slicked-back hair and wore monocles, but Herbie thinks that is not authentic. He goes back in time to prove his point and meets Ticklepuss, a female version of Herbie. Herbie takes Ticklepuss' brother, Bumbum, back to the present and proves himself right. Herbie's teacher falls in love with Bumbum, and Herbie has a nightmare about being chased by Ticklepuss.
