    Moon Boy is a member of a humanoid race called Small-Folk from prehistoric Earth. He lived in a community much like cavemen did and had a way of communicating with animals.


    Moon Boy was created by Jack Kirby and first appeared in Devil Dinosaur #1. Moon-Boy was inspired by Moon-Watcher from 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke, which had two comics written and drawn by Jack Kirby.

Eventually the other members of the group managed to free him and return him to the Savage Land and his friend, the Devil Dinosaur.
