The world’s first caveman crime solver was created in the late 1970s by animation greats William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, and voiced by the legendary Mel Blanc.

Set free from a block of glacier ice by three young women called the Teen Angels, Captain Caveman now accompanies the Angels – Brenda (Marilyn Schreffler), Dee Dee (Vernee Watson) and Taffy (Laurel Page) – on their hilarious and sometimes scary mystery missions, equipped with his trademark animal print vest and wooden club.

The show was a parody of Charlie’s Angels while the Teen Angels were clearly inspired by Josie, Melody and Valerie from earlier Hanna Barbera series, Josie and the Pussycats.

The character design of Captain Caveman himself had already been used for the Slag Brothers in Wacky Races in 1968.

Once a Saturday staple, Captain Caaaaaavemaaaaan was originally seen as part of Scooby’s Laff-a-Lympics.
