Stanley "Caveman" Yelnats IV is the main protagonist of the 1998 novel Holes, as well as the 2003 live-action Disney film interpretation. He is traditionally named Stanley, and his last name is the same spelled backwards due to a curse from Madame Zeroni a long time ago. He is close friends with a shy boy named Hector Zeroni at Camp Green Lake.
Stanley is a 14-year-old boy who does not have any friends from school and is often picked on by his classmates and the school bully. His family is left with bad luck, and although they do not have much money, they always try to remain hopeful and look on the bright side of things.
Stanley shares these traits with his family and, although he does not have a lot of self-confidence, he is not easily depressed, a characteristic that helps him adjust to the horrendous conditions of Camp Green Lake. However, he has a bad habit of blaming his great great grandfather when he gets in trouble. This habit made him impudent.
Stanley Yelnats was walking home from school, while he was walking a pair of Sneaker felt from the sky and landed on him. After smelling the sneakers, he ran home to give to his dad who is working on a cure for foot odor. However, he gets caught by the police believing he stole them from Clyde Livingston, a Baseball player who was donating them to a homeless shelter.
- In the book, Stanley is fat, but was later removed when the film was in production.
