Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels

Show Summary

Welcome to the Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels guide at TV.com.

Known as the World's First Superhero, Captain Caveman was found frozen in a block of ice after millions of years by the adventurous Teen Angels. After they set him free in modern times, he works alongside them in fighting crime and solving mysteries.

CHARACTERS:

CAPTAIN CAVEMAN (voiced by Mel Blanc): He provides the muscle for the Teen Angels with an assortment of super powers as well as various stone age animals and gadgets contained in his fur and especially his power club.

THE TEEN ANGELS: Dee Dee (voiced by Verne Watson) is the brainy African-American Angel best at finding clues and putting them together to solve the mysteries.

Brenda (voiced by Marilyn Schreffler) is the cowardly brunette, quickest to be scared when the Angels come close to solving mysteries as they might lead to danger.

Taffy (voiced by Laurel Page) is the laid-back blonde who's not afraid to use her charm and sex appeal, especially when getting Cavey to go into action. She's the one who usually comes up with the plan to catch the mystery villains, in what the others usually term "The Daffy Taffy Plan". When she gets an idea, she says her catch phrase which is one word: ZOWIE!!!

Season 1 of the series originally aired from 1977-78 on ABC between segments of Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics which also featured the gang on the Scooby Doobies team.

Seasons 2 originally aired on CBS in 1978, and season 3 also on CBS in 1980. Overall, there were 40 ten-minute episodes.

Captain Caveman appeared in two more Hanna-Barbera series; First, The Flintstone Frolics (1980), with his self-titled segments that featured Wilma and Betty as reporters for the Daily Granite, where Cavey worked under the guise of Chester the copy boy and later, The Flintstone Kids (1986-88) which also featured his son, Cavey Jr. fighting crime alongside his dad in the Captain Caveman and Son segments.

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels is among the many Hanna-Barbera classic shows that air every now and then on Boomerang from Cartoon Network.moreless

  • Frozen in a block of ice for millions of years, only to be found for our entertainment!

    9.5
    Even if this series is quite old, it still packs up a good pack of laughs. The characters are hillarious and even though some plots may have been taken directly from Scooby-Doo, you can't deny that there's a certain glamour to this series.



    Captain Caveman's humour is both simple and funny, which works perfectly along side the TeenAngels different personalities. An awesome example of what good cartoons Hanna Barbera did over the years. Highly recommended!moreless
  • Rare = AWESOMENESS!

    This show could've been on Boomerang more often...This show kicked more ass than any other show that is not Scooby Doo.
  • Captain Caveman had a fun and original lead character - a super-powered ball of hair with a great catch-phrase - and that was enough to make it a good cartoon.

    7.0
    Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels was one of many Crime-Solving Teens +Talking Animal Sidekick cartoons that flooded the airwaves in the 70s. The flood was a response to the breakout hit Scooby Doo as everyone tried to copy Scooby's formula.



    The twist in Captain Caveman is that the talking animal is not an animal, but a caveman. A caveman so hairy and backwards that he looks, and talks, like an animal.



    Despite its derivative origins, Captain Caveman was a fun cartoon. It had good visual gags and, most importantly, an excellent catch-phrase -- Captain Caaaaaaaaaaaaaveman! Shouting "Captain Caaaaaaveman!" was excellent fun for kids in the late 70s.



    The plots were standard and derivative children's mystery show plot, but so what. Captain Caveman had a fun and original lead character - a super-powered ball of hair with a great catch-phrase - and that was enough to make it a good cartoon.moreless
  • Cool little program, remembering it now..it definitely brings back memories of the good old days. It is, I'd say, nostalgic.

    8.6
    Well, back when I was younger, I'd say..1998 perhaps, this show used to be on at about 7 o' clock in the morning.

    I'd get up before school, I'd have my marmite covered toast and my cerials and I'd sit on the floor-sometimes next to the warm glow of the fire and watch this childhood gem of a show.

    It would be in with the usual line-up of shows like Scooby Doo and Tom & Jerry kids, or perhaps Top Cat.

    I loved this show and the small majority of other shows I have listed.

    It was a cool show, but did lack the depth that the show Scooby Doo had, however this in my opinion was the better show.moreless
  • When I was younger I used to love this cartoon.

    7.5
    Of course this Hanna-Barbera show was modeled off Charlie's Angels and their own two properties: Scooby-Doo (which Cavey and the Angels appeared with the cowardly Great Dane on Laff-O-Lympics) and The Flintstones (hich Cavey would appear with later in the 80's after the Teen Angels went off the air). But as a kid, I used to have a crush on all three of the Angels and the slapstick comedy of Cavey was humorous as well. Mel Blanc voices as a fluffy caveman thing who was found frozen in ice. He is now a constant hero companion to the Teen Angels, Brenda, Dee Dee and Taffy. Throughout the series they have many hilarious, and sometimes scary missions, or adventures. They involve robberies, ghosts and kidnaps. Every episode "Cavey" uses his fur of tolls or his mallet of gadgets to solve mysteries and catch the villains.



    At the time, this was quite an amusing and quite fun show to watch.moreless
