Captain Cavemerica by Zach Oat

I don't know if Captain Caveman was designed first or named first, or if he was the result of some sort of decades-long Hanna-Barbera R&D project, but he is ridiculous. Is that a massive beard, or is his body furry and peanut-shaped? I'm sure this was explained in the cartoon, along with where his powers come from, but it has literally been decades since I saw one. So I drew him as one of my favorite superheroes, Captain America, and I dressed his son like Bucky in the background.
It's sad that one of the most iconic images of Captain America I can think of is Ultimate Cap pointing at the "A" on his forehead and saying "Do you think this stands for 'France'?" Damn you, Mark Millar. Anyway, I wasn't gonna color it, but I had a few free moments while watching "Jason and teh Argonauts." So here you go.

Dude, I forgot Captain Caveman had a son! Awesome image, Zach! Nice amalgam!

How freaked out would the Nazis have been by an ultraviolent caveman wearing the American flag?

I was wondering if I was the only one here who watched Captain Caveman and Son. It's the only way I know him. I never watched the Laff-a-lympics.

And I think a caveman wearing any flag would have freaked out the Germans. Even a German flag.
