Indexer Notes

Fred is wearing a plastic visor over his face and holding two metal rods in the flames coming from the nose of a dragon, presumably he is soldering. The word Contents is made from metal and the letters N and T are glowing red from the heat.

Reprints
Keywords

Indexer Notes

"Ben Cagey" is a parody of 1960s TV doctor “Ben Casey”, played by actor Vince Edwards. "Stoney Quirk" is a parody of 1960s TV character "Stoney Burke", played by actor Jack Lord. Oddly, the character of "Stoney Burke" was not a doctor but a rodeo rider.

Synopsis
While exploring a deep cave, our stone age explorers Fred and Barney discover an underground civilization of shaggy-haired, bearded “Pre-Stone-Age people”.

Reprints
Keywords

Indexer Notes

Good dialogue exchange:

BARNEY: "These are pre-stone age people, and this is a pre-stone age civilization! They live underground!"

PRE-STONE AGER: You two must be men of the future... We read about you in our science fiction books!

FRED: You've got us wrong! We live in the present... in a modern city outside these caves!

PRE-STONE AGER: But that's impossible! The world hasn't COOLED-OFF enough yet to have a city outside!
