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."Written by

Musically, no worse than most of the bubblegum pop of the 70's, certainly less annoying than disco :) Four reasonably attractive guys, someone for every little girl to dream about. Campy, farcical, definitely ;) But one of my own favorite memories. John Lansing was pretty much the main heart throb, but all the other guys were pretty cute by the standard of the day. And it was funny! No one took it seriously when "Doc" and "Rosemary" (Rita Wilson) attempted to sword fight with saplings, obviously, but the silliness was part of its charm. It didn't take itself as seriously as some other shows designed to tap into the younger market.The show was never given a chance to catch on at all. Its too bad because the cast was fairly talented. I'd watch it over old Monkees shows any day. And I'd listen to "Baby Blue" over "Pleasant Valley Sunday".
