Cave Kids #6 (1965)

 

The sixteen issues of Cave Kids, based on the animated series, The Flintstones by Hanna-Barbera and published by Gold Key Comics in 1963 through 1967.

Cave Kids (also known as Cave Kids Adventures or Cave Kids: Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm) is an American animated preschool television series produced by Hanna-Barbera, and a spin-off of The Flintstones.

The show aired from September 29 to November 17, 1996, with reruns available until 1999.

The series follows the adventures of Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble as prehistoric pre-schoolers with Dino, the Flintstone family’s pet dinosaur, as their babysitter.

While Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm spoke in baby-talk gibberish to adults, they could communicate normally with each other, a la Rugrats (another show that Bamm-Bamm’s voice actresses, Cavanaugh and Daily worked on).

Unlike the original 1960s Flintstones series and its spin-off incarnations featuring the kids and their parents in slapstick comedy adventures, this show focused more on educational values and lessons for children, with each episode also concluding with a music video relating to the episode’s theme using often-altered footage from the episode.

Another thing worth noting is that Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm and Dino were the only established characters to appear in the show and everyone else was completely absent.

An earlier Cave Kids effort was published by Golden Press, both as a Little Golden Books in 1963, and also as a Gold Key Comics series spanning 16 issues from 1963 through 1967.
