Trivia

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 »

Great show!!
31 October 2005 | by HowardBParksSee all my reviews

Of course this Hanna-Barbera show was modeled off Charlie's Angels and their own two properties: Scooby-Doo (which Cavey and the Angels appeared with the cowardly Great Dane on Laff-O-Lympics) and The Flintstones (hich Cavey would appear with later in the 80's after the Teen Angels went off the air). But as a kid, I used to have a crush on all three of the Angels and the slapstick comedy of Cavey was humorous as well. In fact, the show is still good and entertaining, even though it's slightly modeled off the "Scooby-Doo meets Charlie's Angels" example. I'd still watch it today, as it airs periodically on Cartoon Network's offspring channel Boomerang.
