Viper's Brief Boomerang Reviews (June 8, 2002)
This is the only show I got to see that day because nothing else interested me. Mighty Man & Yukk was ok but I like Blue Falcon & Dynomutt better The world's smallest hero and the world's ugliest dog? Anyway, here's the show with Spoilers for who never saw it:
Captain Caveman & the Teen Angels--Three teenage girls: Taffy, Dee Dee, and Brenda; solve mysteries with the help of their prehystoric friend--sort of a cross between Charlie's Angels and Scooby-Doo.
1.The Case of the Creaky Charter Boat
In this one, Taffy's friend, who's the daughter of Broadway star-Alister Jones-has invited them all on a dinner cruise. At the buffet, they meet Alister's understudy, Mr. Weeks, who brought along his own food, Skippy peanut butter. Suddenly, the lights go out and Mrs. Fenimore's (an actress, I suppose) diamond necklace has been stolen! So, it's up to Cavey & the girls to find out whodunnit, as usual. First, Cavey does his famous yell and flies through a vent only to go through a coal chute. In the coal pile, Taffy discovers "Jewels of the Night Sea", a script of Alister's play.She also notices a strange food stain on the front cover (a direct giveaway!) and the opening scene is a jewel heist on a ship--seems the crook is acting out the play. The script goes on like this: page 3, a pearl from the stolen necklace is in Fenimore's cabin; page 4, the cabin's door locks them in; page 5, the walls close in on them; page 6, uh-oh!--page 6 is missing! Of course Cavey helps out by stretching himself to stop the walls--which turns him into a new center for the Lakers.lol Next, they jump ahead to the final page and see the thief is...Alister?! Well, to clear him, they must capture the real crook who splits in a speedboat to an old shack on a nearby island--just like in the script. Seems it's better not to speed-read, eh? Cavey becomes their boat to get them there, after Taffy sweet-talks him into it. Once there, they nab the crook who turns out to be..Alister?! Dee Dee believes he's innocent when she spots the final clue, peanut-butter stains on the back of his jacket. So, they put all the clues together and announce to everyone that the real crook is...Mr. Weeks, the understudy. Took 'em long enough to figure that out. ) Reason: to frame Alister and become the new star of the play. Let's see Agatha Christie top this one!
Funny moments: at the buffet, when Cavey swallows silverware and dishes into his solid-steel stomach! Another one is as a boat, there's a take-off on Jaws where Cavey scares off a shark! Surprised Jabberjaw didn't make a cameo.lol Brenda, scared as she is, is glad the play wasn't titled "Dracula." She's a female Shaggy!
Not bad but could've been better. C+
I'll have to do the other cartoon later. Out of time.

2nd CC&TTA cartoon
What a Flight for a Fright
This one deals with a rich woman's jewels are stolen by some mysterious crook. Seems she'd rather hold on to them rather than let airport security take care of them. IMO, very bad move. Our friends notice the crook getting on a plane but Cavey is too late to stop it before it took off--almost runs into guardrail in process. So, they "fly the friendly Cavey skies" in their motorhome to the next airport, but the crook is nowhere in sight as the passengers get off. As they check the plane, no crook but they do find what looks like part of a balloon, which Cavey uses for bubble gum to confer.lol They decide to question the crew and passengers for info--Cavey questions a lovely stewardess who gave him "the eye." However, the pilot is sure no one would've left w/o being noticed. Bummer! Taffy's plan: disguise herself as a jeweled rich lady so the thief will strike again. So, they're all in disguise, even Cavey--who's not too thrilled about being a french poodle. On board, Brenda's nervous that something'll happen like the lights going out and a monster carrying one of them off the plane. Taffy thinks she's seen one too many horror flicks, UNTIL IT HAPPENS!!! Talk about suspense! They of course find Taffy in a baggage closet and of course, the crook took the bait. However, when they land, after a police search, no crook and no jewels. Darn! Dee Dee does find a make-up case under one of the seats that contains used black and blonde hair pieces. With this and the balloon part, they're ready to capture the crook.
Funny moment: while Dee Dee explains the plane's coordinates, Cavey tries to figure them out by counting on both his toes and the ones on his sabre-tooth tiger.lol So, on a country road, they find the missing jewel case on a tree limb, dropped by parachute. The girls hide in the tree while Cavey pretends to be a bat and wait for the crook to show up. How those lovely girls were able to fit in the tree, I'll never know. Anyway, the crook shows up, Cavey spotlights him to reveal...him's a her!!! It's the stewardess who gave Cavey "the eye" earlier! As she gets away, Cavey pretends to be a motorcycle cop to stop her, loses her but then he gets her by bridge-lifting her! Watching Chips reruns paid off!
How did she do it? 1st, she used the make-up case to disguise herself as a he. Then, she used a balloon copy of her disguised self which she later deflated and of course, dumped the jewels out by parachute. Tidbit: that's the last time Cavey will let a pretty face other than the Teen Angels try to pull the fur over his eyes.
Pretty good. B+
So, tell me what some of you think of my reviews. It's a nice change from Poke-crap, Yu-gi-garbage, and Digi-muck on tv these days. I wanna hear from you! Esp. Dr. Belch himself.
