Captain Cavewoman?

Captain Cavewoman?

So, I found this nappy, scraggly, disgusting piece of plastic at a flea market years ago. Funny thing is, this little lady looks like she might actually have fleas.

It seems like she's a finger-puppet or something (the ugliest finger-puppet a mother can buy but a finger-puppet nonetheless).

She looks like she could be E.T.'s mom. Look at her! She's a chubby E.T. with hair, boobs, and a furry dress.

My only clue to what she is is the fine print on her posterior that reads © Anjar 1989. I've currently been unable to find any details about caveman finger-puppets.

I know when I bought this thing, it reminded me of the old Nintendo game, “Caveman Games.” It was basically prehistoric versions of the Olympic Games. Fun stuff.

... Much better than recent caveman entertainment. Like those Geico commercials that have "evolved" into a crappy show on ABC (I haven't seen it. I'm just making assumptions and talking trash.) I remember the good ol' days of caveman entertainment: The Flinstones, Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer, Captain Caveman, Caveman (the movie), Encino Man... well, maybe it wasn't so great afterall.

    Ahhh… Caveman Games. Now that brings back some great crappy 8 bit memories.

    Imagine Caveman Games on the Wii. It would be crap!!

    Oh man, Caveman games was almost impossible to figure out without the instruction booklet.

    I love these kinds of unintentionally hideous second-hand knick-knacks.

    I didn’t have a problem knowing how to play the game, but i did need the help of the turbo buttons on the NES Max controller.

    Hi, I wanted to contact you about your finger puppet. I have a puppet that looks like yours but is a man. I call him grog. anjar doesn’t have information, but it might be from the land before time.

    About your Cavewoman finger puppet … I have two of the Caveman puppets (as does one of the other commenters here), and I am keenly interested in obtaining the Cavewoman companion puppet shown here. Care to sell??

    Green eyes? Log clothes? What is this thing?

    Oh, Caveman Games. It’s hard to believe how terrible those games were yet we still played them constantly. Someone needs to write a _Phoenix: the Fall and Rise of Videogames_-esque book focusing on the games, and not the systems.
