Korg: 70,000 B.C. is an American live-action educational drama television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran in 1974 to 1975, airing 19 episodes that spanned one season.

The Korg family, neanderthals only limited by their environment in the Ice Age, overcome the trials and tribulations of everyday life, while they continue to discover new things.

The series is similar to the then-concurrent prehistoric-themed animated TV series Valley of the Dinosaurs.

The entire series has been released on DVD.



It was originally announced as Krog,[1] and some newspapers in the week of its premiere still listed it as such.


The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin, credited as musical director, with musical supervision from Paul De Korte.
