CavemanFilms IRL

Daniel Smith (born: August 5, 1993 (1993-08-05) [age 26]) better known online as CavemanFilms, is an American YouTube comedian, gamer and the CEO of CavemanFilms LLC. The CavemanFilms channel currently has over 1.5 million subscribers and has achieved over 320 million video views to this present day. He refers to his fan base as "the Dwellers," He is most notable for his Minecraft video game content, his series ㅣlike "Bad/Disturbing Games", and "Shenanderthals" is a series in which he and his friend play games that are usually either bad or just weird.

Caveman has attended gaming conferences such as the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, Washington and the Electionic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, California. In November 2012, he attended a popular Minecraft convention called Minecon in Paris, France. While there his mother passed away, leaving him emotionally devastated and trapped in France with no way back to the United States until his plane would depart three days after. It's been said that the creator of Minecraft, Markus "Notch" Persson, had offered to find a plane for him to make the trip back to the USA, but all planes were booked and those that weren't would take over 30 hours to arrive. After arriving back home, Dan took a small hiatus on his channel, with good friends SkyDoesMinecraft and AntVenom kindly uploading videos on his behalf. A few weeks after, Dan had recovered to a point where he can continue doing video content and is now currently back to his usual cheery self.

Known Series

Dan has created a lot of series over the past few years, with some getting some critical acclaim.

CavemanFilm's Oldest Minecraft YouTube Avatar

His most viewed series ever was The Curse of Herobrine , a two part Minecraft Machinima uploaded onto the Machinima main channel. Together both parts have gathered over 2.5 million views.

CavemanFilms is also known for making cinematic Let's Plays, such as his Secrets of the Dwellers and Pixelmon Lapis series. He's stated countless times that the amount of effort he puts into those videos makes the time it takes to create one take a lot longer than a regular Let's Play, his fans still continue to feverishly ask for them on every video he posts.


In his various videos, CavemanFilms has called objects or said phrases that people deemed sort of funny, and they've become in-jokes on his channel. Some of the in-jokes are:

Calling the Nether's Ghast a "Babyface". In one series he did with AntVenom, the ghasts were textured to look like mutated anuses so they were thereby dubbed "Babyanus".

The Minecraft item "bone" that is dropped by skeletons or found in chest is called a club whenever Caveman finds one. This is a reference to bone clubs, a weapon actual cavemen used back in the day. The subsequent item "bonemeal" is called club dust because of it being powdered club.

Caveman has also expressed a great amount of disdain towards the non-aggressive bat mob. Frequently seeking them out to kill them, he calls the bats various forms of insults but usually refers to them as "Demon birds". He knows that they are in fact mammals, but he still chooses to call them so.

In a Cops and Robbers video, Dan was called 'Fluffy Face' by SkyDoesMinecraft, then jokingly replying "How'd you know my last name?"

When something's acting not to his liking he might call it a frontbutt. According to Caveman, "a frontbutt's a butt in the front, and that's just what it is." He also sometimes uses it in a joking manner when playing with friends.
