Quirky 70's fun.
20 July 2018 | by Java_JoeSee all my reviews

There's a word that could never be associated with "The Kids from C.A.P.E.R." and that's serious. The show was goofy fun and they knew it so they played with it. Often times they broke the fourth wall, stopped for pointless musical numbers, had silly gags that would take place and generally had a fun time doing it.

That silliness was really part of the charm. It was like the Monkees but from a group of guys that weren't a band and never played any instruments. It didn't take itself seriously and why should they?

Each member of course had some ability or power that the others lacked. PT was able to sniff out clues like a bloodhound along with his nose named Seymour.

Bugs was the strongman of the group who could call on his strength by looking at his hands. Of course if you tied his hands behind him, he was powerless. And he had a strange thing with bananas. Speak the word near him and he'd go crazy repeating the word over and over again until a bell rang, he'd snap out of it and wonder what was going on.

Doomsday felt like he was bad luck to the crew but he, at least according to the theme song, was filled with sunshine. He also had a strange appetite, wanting things like hot fudge omelettes. He could also speak to animals.

And finally was the guy that all the girls went crazy over namely Doc who was the brains the looks of the operation.

It only lasted 13 episodes and it's never made it's way onto DVD or VHS which is a shame. But there was an LP that came out with a lot of the songs they did. Oddly enough, it didn't have the theme song or the fan favorite "Baby Blue".
