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.
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!!!
