Related shows The Flintstones

Cave Kids (also known as Cave Kids Adventures or Cave Kids: Pebbles & Bamm Bamm) is an American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera, and a spin-off of The Flintstones. The show aired on Cartoon Network as part of its educational programming block from September 21 to November 9, 1996.

Overview

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.

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.

Voice cast

  • Aria Noelle Curzon as Pebbles Flintstone
    • Taylor Gunther as Baby Pebbles
  • Christine Cavanaugh as Bamm-Bamm Rubble (singing voice provided by E.G. Daily)
