Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels

Set free by the Teen Angels from his prehistoric block of glacier ice, comes the world’s first superhero, Captain Caveman!

Now the constant companion to the Teen Angels—Brenda, Dee Dee and Taffy—in their hilarious, and sometimes scary mystery missions. Get ready for Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels!

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels is an animated series created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. It ran from September 10th 1977 to June 21st 1980 with a total of 40 11-minute episodes produced. The show centres on the mystery-solving adventures of the Teen Angels—Brenda, Dee Dee and Taffy—and their friend Captain Caveman (or Cavey for short), a prehistoric caveman whom the girls discovered and thawed from a block of ice.

The concept and general plot for the show was seen as a parody of Charlie’s Angels. It also borrowed heavily from other Hanna-Barbera shows such as Scooby-Doo and Josie and the Pussycats, among others. Captain Caveman was also on the “Scooby Doobies” team on Laff-a-Lympics.

Captain Caveman’s powers include super-strength, a variety of useful objects hidden inside his fur, and a club that allows him to fly and from which pops out different tools he uses to fight crime. His trademark is his battle cry of “Captain CAAVEMAAAAAAANNNN!” Captain Caveman’s voice was provided by Mel Blanc.

The first and second seasons of the show remained part of Scooby’s All-Star Laff-A-Lympics and Scooby’s All-Stars through 1979. Cavey and the girls also participated in sporting competitions as part of “The Scooby Doobies” team on the half-hour “Laff-A-Lympics” segment. In March 1980, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels were given their own half hour show with 16 new episodes combined with reruns from 1977–1979.

Like many animated series created by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s, the show contained a laugh track created by the studio, one of their last productions to do so.
