Review:

The title character is a pint-sized caveman with a mop of spiky hair that makes him look like Gohan in Dragonball Z. Flint was frozen in a rock shell by Petra Fina ages ago, then found in the 25th century by the twins Tony and Sarah Goodman. Their scientist-uncle at the Bureau of Time and Space revived Flint but could only preserve his father's spirit in a powerful stone ax. The Bureau needs detectives: the evil Dark Lord (who resembles the Phantom of the Opera) is trying to capture all the mysterious creatures known as TimeShifters--little beings who possess magical powers. His agent is none other than Petra Fina, ineptly abetted by her henchmen Dino and Might. The trio provides a comic villainy that recalls Team Rocket in Pokémon, a similarity the presence of the cute little TimeShifters reinforces. Flint, Sarah, Tony, and the TimeShifter Getalong travel through space and time to block Petra Fina's various missions. In "Jitter Bug," they visit 2nd-century Japan; in "Eldora," 16th-century South America. It's all silly, harmless fun aimed at small children, which is why this 39-part series plays on Fox Kids. Contains the first three episodes: 1. "Hammerhead Rock," 2. "Jitter Bug," 3. "Eldora." Unrated but suitable for all ages. --Charles Solomon
