One of many spoofs based on the hit TV show Charlie’s Angels. Captain Caveman was an animated series featuring three lovely young ladies (Dee Dee, Brenda, Taffy) and a freshly defrosted crime-solving caveman. Yes, that’s right, a crime-solving caveman. The entire premise of the show was to have a caveman and 3 nubile young women travel around in a van, continually coming upon caveman solvable crimes. It was produced by the venerable Hanna-Barbara Productions and premiered March 1980. Despite its seemingly fail-proof formula, it only lasted one season. Luckily, it ran in syndication on USA Networks from ’89-’90, giving me the opportunity to see the best that American animation studios had to offer.
