    Captain Caveman Production Cel and Master Background (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1980s). Captain Caveman leaps in the air, in this original hand-painted 12 field production cel, placed on an original hand-painted background. This zany character originally appeared in a series titled Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels. The "angels" were Brenda, Dee Dee, and Taffy, and the series was set in modern times, with Cavey (as he was nicknamed) discovered by the girls in a block of ice. The series ran for three seasons, beginning in 1980. Cavey also appeared in two Flintstones spin-offs, The Flintstone Comedy Show (1980-82) and The Flintstone Kids (1986-88), where he was featured in prehistoric settings. We're not sure which series this great setup came from, but it's a very nice image of this cult classic, placed on what appears to be a prehistoric-style background. The background is painted in gouache, with airbrushed highlights; it measures 15.25" wide. Captain Caveman and his club have an overall image size of approximately 5" x 5". Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
