The show was a parody of Charlie's Angels
(1976). The Teen Angels, Brenda, Taffy and Dee Dee were clearly inspired by Josie, Melody and Valerie from an earlier Hanna Barbera series, Josie and the Pussycats
(1970). The character design of Captain Caveman himself had already been used for the Slag Brothers in yet another Hanna Barbera cartoon, Wacky Races
(1968). See more
