Playthrough 1 - Hillbilly, Knight, Time Traveler

Well Done - 10
Witnessed a hot dog cooked with the monster's breath.

During your first visit to the Employees Only section of the cave you'll need to get passed the Crystal Cave Monster. Usually you would place the hot dog on the spike and ring the bell. For this achievement simply place the hot dog on the spike and jump over the pit towards the monster. Toasty!

Shoplifting - 5
Saw a postcard stolen from the Gift Shop.

After returning to the Gift Shop with your three trinkets you'll need to interact with the Postcard Display and pick up the Postcard. The achievement will unlock when you enter The Cave proper. Keep a hold of this postcard! See Remorse.

A Midsummer Knight's Thieve - 10
Helped the Knight obtain Excalibur.

Required: Knight
Story based (cannot be missed)

Royal Buffet - 10
Spied a King, eaten by a Dragon.

Required: Knight
After the King rushes off to talk to the Princess you just need to follow him back to the Princess's bedroom. That is one hungry dragon!

Weight of the Beast - 10
Got the Weight Guess scale to read 666.

Required: Hillbilly, Knight and Time Traveler.
Once you're at the carnival you'll need to gather up the Wrench, Sledgehammer and Barbell and - while holding these items - stand on the scales. Do this before solving the scales puzzle as once the puzzle is solved the scales will no longer work.

Funnier Than a Burning Carnival - 10
Enabled the Hillbilly to burn down the Carnival.

Required: Hillbilly
Story based (cannot be missed)

Fire In The Hole - 10
All three characters killed by one Miner's dynamite.

After pulling a couple of levers and causing a minor cave-in you'll come across a rather angry miner. You'll need your entire group blown up by the same stick of dynamite.
A couple of notes here. Firstly, if you're looking to get Creamed Corn then you should ensure the can of corn the miner throws at you is blown up by dynamite. Otherwise you'll have to take it with you and find another way of destroying it.
Secondly, you should aim to get blown up before you begin solving the mine car puzzles. Once all three cars are delivered he'll stop throwing dynamite.

Smells Like Team Spirit - 10
Made all three characters smell like a dinosaur at once.

Required: Time Traveler
Use the time-machine to travel to the future and head to the dinosaur exhibit in the basement of the museum. Stand all three of your group in front of the exhibit and press the button. Stinky!

Prevenge - 10
Served as an accessory to the Time Traveler's murder of her enemy's ancestor.

Required: Time Traveler
Story based (cannot be missed)

To Soothe A Savage Beast - 10
Recorded and played back the elevator music from the Zoo food court.

While you're at the zoo you'll be fixing a tape recorder. Simply drop it in front of the shack that's playing some lovely music (three shacks left of the hot dog machine) so it records. Then drop it again near the Crystal Cave Monster so it plays.

Creamed Corn - 10
Saw every Can of Corn in The Cave destroyed.

There are two cans of corn you'll need to destroy. The first is where you meet the miner (see: Fire in the Hole) and will likely be destroyed by his dynamite. The second can of corn is on the desert island. Simply place it next to the explosive barrels as you're solving the barrel puzzle and the achievement is yours.

Remorse - 5
Saw a postcard returned to the Gift Shop.

Required: You to have stolen the postcard before leaving the Gift Shop.
Eventually you'll arrive back at the Gift Shop. Simply place the postcard back in the Postcard Display.

What You Always Wanted - 25
Reached the bottom of The Cave.

Should unlock sometime between trading your stolen trinkets for your prized possession and leaving the cave.

Playthrough 2 - Hillbilly, Scientist, Monk

Learn to Stop Worrying - 10
Shared in the blame for the Scientist's act of mass murder.

Required: Scientist
Story based (cannot be missed)

Embrace Impermanence - 10
Got the bridge inside the temple to collapse.

Required: Monk
Keep hold of that feather! After solving the Monkey Puzzle you'll be riding on three carpets up passed your hearts desires. On the right there will be an opening with a rope hanging down. Get your group up that rope and jump on the bridge at the top.

Grand Theft Karma - 10
Played some dubious role in the Monk's murder of his Master.

Required: Monk
Story based (cannot be missed)

Who Wants to Live Forever - 40
Got everyone out of The Cave without dying once.

I find this easiest with the Hillbilly, Scientist and Monk as their sections of the cave are fairly safe.

Just a few words of warning:
Avoid the guard with the gun in the Scientist's launch facility.
Stay still on the magic carpets in the Monk's temple.
Careful on that Ferris Wheel at the Hillbilly's carnival.
Watch out for the miner's dynamite.
At the zoo a good whack from the Crystal Cave Monster's tail will kill you.
The large hole on the desert island is very easy to fall into.

Remember, if you die (or are about to die), quickly hit the guide button and exit to dash. You may need to replay a large portion of the game but at least you won't be replaying everything!
