Live-action Saturday morning comedy/adventure series. Every episode featured a musical number, numerous self-referential and "fourth wall" jokes, and a love interest for one of the primary characters. C.A.P.E.R. stands for the "Civilian Authority to Protect Every body Regardless." —Alan P. Scott <email@example.com>
Saturday morning shenanigans
The other reviewer who has seen this show speculated that the Kids were a Sid and Marty Krofft product. They weren't. Don Kirshner, former musical supervisor for the Monkees, oversaw both the music and the show, so it's only natural the Kids seemed not a little like the Pre-Fab Four. It's not hard to make that mistake: the Kroffts had the live-action Saturday morning market cornered, in addition to having a couple of pre-fab groups themselves, like the Bugaloos and Kaptain Kool and the Kongs. I have the Kids' sole Lp: it ain't great, even by bubblegum standards(perhaps because bubblegum music peeked about six years earlier). However, there were some noteworthy names involved. Neil Sedaka contributed a song, and Paul Schaffer (David Letterman's band leader)functioned as musical arranger, I believe.
