This amazing Captain Caveman Cake was made by Puckycakes. It features Captain Caveman flying through the air. There is a cute monster coming out of an egg and the Captain is hitting the egg with his club.
Captain Caveman first appeared in the Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels segments made for Scooby’s All Star Laff-A-Lympics. These short cartoons mixed Charlie’s Angels with a stone-age superhero.
The Captain and the Teen Angels were also part of the Laff-A-Lympics team – The Scooby Doobies. Originally, those slots were going to be filled by the cast of Josie and The Pussycats. I would have loved seeing Josie and The Pussycats on Laff-A-Lympics.
The Captain and his Teen Angles were popular enough that they eventually received their own animated series.
Captain Caveman and his son, Cavey Jr. also appeared as a segment on The Flintstone Kids. I haven’t seen the Flinstone Kids in years, but if I remember correctly, Captain Caveman was Fred and Barney’s favorite TV show.
One of Captain Caveman’s most unusual series was in the Flintstone Comedy Show. Here is Wikipedia description:
“In November 1980, Captain Caveman began to star in segments of his own on The Flintstone Comedy Show, one of many spin-offs of Hanna-Barbera’s popular prime-time show The Flintstones, often in a role similar to that of Superman. Captain Caveman worked at The Daily Granite newspaper with Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble. His “secret identity” was Chester the office boy. To disguise himself as Chester, Captain Caveman wore a pair of glasses and a tie. Despite the simplicity of his disguise, he required a coat rack and an elaborate transformation sequence to become Captain Caveman.”
I’ve never seen these cartoons and will have to see if they are online.
Back to this gorgeous cake.
Here is a close-up of Captain Caveman. Georgia did an amazing job with the Captain flying through the air. The detail on the Captain is wonderful. His eyes are crossed and the two pupils are different sizes. He is covered in brown hair and has a few black hairs sticking out. His facial expression makes him look like he is happy.
The little green monster coming out the egg is adorable. I really like how his eyes and eye brows are popping out of the top of the shell so that everything is black and white. The rest of his face is green. He has little fangs, a tiny nose and little arms. He looks puzzled by why Captain Caveman is hitting him.
This is the first time I’ve featured Captain Caveman. I love Hanna-Barbera cartoons and have featured many of their characters in the past. Here are just some of the characters I’ve featured – The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Penelope Pitstop, Grape Ape, Top Cat and Jonny Quest.
