Cavity Sam is the sole character of the electronic board game Operation. He is depicted as a patient with many openings of fictional elements made of plastic. His image is lithographed on an "operating table."


Cavity Sam's is depicted as an overweight patient with brown hair. A distinguishing feature of his is a red lightbulb for his nose, and in some versions of the box of the game, he is seen wearing either pink[1] or red[2] underwear in the box art. In most of the versions of the board game itself, he is depicted nude.[3]


  • In some versions of Operation, the entire board game features him on a bed, but in other versions, it is just a plain yellow surface.
