Trivia

The show was a parody of Charlie's Angels (1976). The Teen Angels, Brenda, Taffy and Dee Dee were clearly inspired by Josie, Melody and Valerie from an earlier Hanna Barbera series, Josie and the Pussycats (1970). The character design of Captain Caveman himself had already been used for the Slag Brothers in yet another Hanna Barbera cartoon, Wacky Races (1968). See more »

Neat Show
7 February 2020 | by jeremycrimsonfoxSee all my reviews

This show is the one that introduced Captain Caveman. Basically, another cartoon made in the same mystery solver format as Scooby-Doo, this show has a lot of comedy (mainly from Cavey's powers giving out and the fact that he eats stuff). Also, the Teen Angels, inspired by Charlie's Angels, can be compared to some of the Scooby Gang (Taffy to Fred, Dee Dee to Velma, and Brenda to Shaggy) in terms of personality. This show lasted for three seasons, first being a segment on two other shows before getting its own half-hour show, each episode having two mysteries. This is a good show that introduced a character who would appear in two Flintstones spin-off shows.
