Excellent, Preschool, puppy, caveman, pets
Trog the cave boy has toys that should be lots of fun: sticks, rocks, and mud. But all he wants is a puppy to play with. He comes across a striped alligator and brings it home, dubbing it “Puppy!” His new pet causes a lot of problems for his family, like crying a lot and eating everything presented to it with a big crunch, including the family’s bed and table. Trog does everything he can to soothe his unhappy pet. Finally, the alligator’s enormous mother comes to retrieve her baby and brings him home where he is happy once more. Trog goes in search of a new pet and finds a “kitty.”
