TV: C is for...

Captain Caveman

Insert Justin Lee Collins reference hereWRETCHED CRYOGENICALLY-FROZEN four-foot furball with a) ragged leopardskin cape b) solitary facial feature (a pink bulbous nose) c) club which opened up to reveal mini-pterodactyl with candle, and d) various woolly mammoths/sabretooth tigers hidden in fur, battles crime with Charlie’s, er, the TEEN Angels (like no-one would spot that rip off), comprising Brenda (token nervous/pathetic one), Dee-Dee (token black/sassy one) and Taffy (token blonde of “Super zowee!” fame). Appalling scruffy runt used to stupidly try and fly with the club every episode, but it always conked out mid-air (“Bad time for power failure!” etc). Resulting injuries were never fatal, sadly.

    Not quite Scooby-Doo, but still better than The New Shamoo.

    I thought that the admins for this site, would have observed that Taffy, looks like she was based on Farah Fawcett.

    Always thought this show a lazy mash-up combining of one of the Boulder Brothers from Wacky Races and a crime-solving Josie And The Pussycats girl gang getting into Scooby Doo type japes. Very poor

    HB seemed to like recycling stuff between series.

    At least this was OK in a “waiting for the next thing on CBBC way” & the end theme was catchy.
