the kids from: C.A.P.E.R.

C.A.P.E.R. = CIVILIAN AUTHORITY FOR THE PROTECTION OF EVERYBODY, REGARDLESS


"the kids from: C.A.P.E.R." was a popular Saturday morning children's television series in 1976 and 1977. If you grew up with it, you get it. If not, you probably won't. Kind of a 70's version of the Monkees (Don Kirshner is Executive Producer and the LP is on Kirshner Records) but (l-r) P.T. (Steve Bonino), Bugs (Cosie Costa), Doc (John Lansing) and Doomsday (Biff Warren) were mainly crimefighters who sang good pop songs on the side (arranged by Paul Shaffer and written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield, Ron Dante and members of The Tokens among others). The Kids only 'sang' the songs featured on each episode and were never seen holding or playing instruments.
There are some good websites and you tube clips out there so check out the zany quartet especially to hear the BEST song from the show that's left off of the album...the Theme From The Kids From C.A.P.E.R.!

The four Kids also got some pretty good coverage in the teen mags during their quick 14 minutes.
