Screen Rant presents an exclusive clip from The Croods: Family Tree season 5, now streaming on Hulu and Peacock, in which Ugga tries to cook.
Screen Rant is pleased to present an exclusive clip from The Croods: Family Tree season 5, which just made its way from the prehistoric Pliocene era onto Hulu and Peacock today. Based on the 2013 computer-animated hit, The Croods, the spinoff series serves as a sequel to the more recent film, The Croods: A New Age. EPs and showrunners Mark Banker and Todd Grimes (from The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants) have successfully navigated five seasons since its inception in September 2021, and the adventures of the Crood family are only going to get more outrageous.
The Croods: Family Tree began by focusing on the rivalry between the Croods and the Bettermans, who naturally claim they are better and more evolved than their cavemen frienemies in every way. As the seasons progress, so too has each family’s understanding of each other, especially respective mothers Ugga and Hope as well as new friends Eep and Dawn (voiced by Kelly Marie Tran, The Last Jedi) . Things came to a surprising head at the end of season 4, in “Goodbye Crood World,” when a meteor appeared to be hurtling towards the farm and forcing the group to say their fond farewells. But, as seen in the clip below, the end did not come and interfamily rivalries persist despite renewed closeness.
What To Expect From The Croods: Family Tree Season 5
In Screen Rant‘s exclusive clip from The Croods: Family Tree season 5, Ugga Crood (voiced by Amy Landecker) laments that her family seems to prefer Dawn Betterman’s (voiced by Amy Rosoff) cooking over hers. In a heart-dropping montage, she is shown practically force-feeding her loved ones all manner of dishes that range from beyond raw meat to actual live animals that are ready to attack. Life on the Betterman Farm means home-cooked meals courtesy of Hope, but Ugga is ready to prove herself as a gatherer and not just a hunter. The question, of course, is whether her family will survive her attempts.
Other exciting developments in The Croods: Family Tree season 5 include the thawing of an old flame of Gran’s, Eep and Guy’s burgeoning relationship despite Grug’s reluctance to warm up to him, and every variation of family rivalry under the sun. But the dynamic between Ugga and Hope in particular is emblematic of the themes that the Dreamworks animated series delves into, appreciating that each member of the community has their own strengths even when jealousy gets in the way.
Dreamworks has plenty of other animated projects available on streaming services, often based on their beloved filmography. Just this year, Abominable and the Invisible City opened new doors for the characters from Abominable, while Dragons: The Nine Realms has been continuing the legends told in How To Train Your Dragon. The influx of content is perfect for families looking to enjoy a series together over the holiday weekend, or for kids hoping for a reward after a long day of schoolwork.
All episodes of The Croods: Family Tree are now available to stream on Hulu and Peacock.
