Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels
The show centers 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 (which also aired on ABC). It also borrowed heavily from other Hanna-Barbera shows such as Scooby-Doo and Josie and the Pussycats, among others.
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 CAAAAAVEMAAAAAAANNNN!" Captain Caveman's voice was provided by Mel Blanc.
Like many animated series created by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s, the show contained an inferior laugh track created by the studio, one of their last productions to do so.
The first and second seasons were originally broadcast as segments on the package show Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics/Scooby's All-Stars, where Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels were also seen on Laff-a-Lympics, on the Scooby Doobies team; the third season featured them in their own half-hour timeslot in 1980.
