Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Many (or possibly all) of the tropes listed in this page's trope list need context. A list of tropes is not a description.

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels was introduced as part of Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics on ABC in 1977. When not competing on Scooby Doo's team, Cavey and his trio of beauties solved mysteries in yet another variation of the Scooby format. Cavey, a caveman Superhero frozen in a block of ice until thawed in the 20th century by the Teen Angels, kept many gadgets and live dinosaurs inside his fur. He also possessed superhuman strength, and (thanks to his club) could even fly; those powers were prone to giving out at unwelcome occasions.

Voice talent included Mel Blanc, Laurel Page, Marilyn Schreffler and Vernée Watson-Johnson.

In later series, Captain Caveman was shown living alongside The Flintstones. The early 1980s The Flintstone Comedy Show starred Cavey in his own segment, as Bedrock's resident superhero, often accompanied on adventures by newspaper reporters Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble. On The Flintstone Kids, Captain Caveman and his son were the stars of a Show Within a Show.

Tropes used in Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels include:

The Captain Caveman segments on The Flintstone Kids provide examples of:

  • An Aesop: Seen in the wraparound segments featuring the Flintstone Kids.
  • Arch Enemy: Mr. Bad
  • Chaste Toons: Subverted.
  • Legion of Doom: A team-up of the segments' various villains (spearheaded by Mr. Bad) is seen in one episode.
  • Missing Mom: Captain Caveman must have married someone in order to produce Junior, but his wife is never seen.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: The duo once disguised themselves as villains by donning domino masks. Since this was in an Amnesia Episode, the amnesiac Captain Caveman decides that since he's wearing such a mask, he must be a villain, and then proceeds to steal so much stuff that there's nothing left for all the other criminals to rob.
  • Super-Hero Origin: For both Captain Caveman (in a flashback episode) and his son, Cavey Jr. (the pilot showing that he was allowed to join his father in crimefighting once he became old enough).
