Per Sohn’s description of the storyline: Arlo lives in a farming community where nothing ever changes, and one that’s overrun by “giant prehistoric bugs.” Arlo is fascinated by them, and upon further investigation comes to find that one of these bugs is actually a young caveman named Spot, who’s just wearing a bug costume for, presumably, protection.

Spot, gets his name from the three spots on his forehead, said Sohn. He’s all alone in the world. He’s a tough kid who’s not afraid of anyone, but he’s also really endearing.

Here’s what Spot looks like:
