EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Hanna Barbera Classics VC section we have a little something for this famous neanderthal superhero... CAPTAIN CAVEMAN! We shall start this off with the late 70's series "Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels" in which he was voiced by the late great Mel Blanc. Mel has had a bit of a history with Hanna Barbera over the years (especially with the likes of Barney Rubble and Cosmo Spacely) but Mel's Captain Caveman voice is probably one of the gruffest voices Mel ever done which does work for the role here. Mel's performance for Captain Caveman definitely had a wild and energetic feel but it does work on how Captain Caveman is at heart a lovable goofy guy whom happens to be a incredibly strong superhero as well. Basically Mel's performance as Captain Caveman is another classic example of Mel's work.
While most of Captain Caveman's appearances were voiced by the late great Mel Blanc his initial appearance in the 2010's namely as a Special Guest in a episode of Scooby Doo Mystery Inc. in which Jim Cummings gets to take over the role here. Now I am normally quite fond of Jim Cummings' work and he is quite possibly one of the best vocal mimics (among other skills) in the industry but this is only an okay example of his skills. While Jim's Captain Caveman movie does have a good sense of gruffness in a suitably goofy voice for the role here. However Jim's voice for Captain Caveman is a bit too high for the role which is a little off but aside from that Jim's work for Captain Caveman is not bad but I have heard better from him. Overall neither one of these voices for Captain Caveman are bad but I am easily going with the late great Mel Blanc this time.
