|Captain Caveman was a prehistoric superhero unfrozen by three teenage beauties. They took him around in their van, solving mysteries across the country. And he could fly. Young boys of the world, set your envy-meters to "overload."
The captain's powers of flight came from his multi-purpose club, which could pop open to produce any gadget necessary to defeat the villain. Sidekick Cave Bird was also on hand to keep his master's devices straight. The girls, known collectively as the "Teen Angels," were brainy Dee Dee, scaredy pants Brenda and easygoing Taffy.
Supremely hairy, "Cavey" was also blessed with a great set of lungs, which he would use to belt out his name when flying into action. The characters had originated on Scooby’s All-Star Laff-A-Lympics in 1977, but Cavey's outrageous antics were too much to contain to ensemble work. Hanna-Barbera finally gave the shaggy hero his own show in 1980, titled Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels.
The program only ran for 16 episodes, but the Captain found a more fitting home in Bedrock, playing as a supporting character on The Flintstones Comedy Show and later on The Flintstone Kids, this time with son Cavey Jr.
