A site devoted to the 1976 Saturday morning show, The Kids from: C.A.P.E.R.
Those who remember it can never forget it . . . and still love it.

Our mission statement: To thoroughly research the show, give it the recognition it deserves, locate the episodes and finally get them released on DVD!


This website is a work in progress!  While we will have no set schedule to update, we will add information and news whenever it becomes available to us!  Any and all updates will be posted in the box below and on our Twitter page, so be sure to check back with us often!
