The Kids from C.A.P.E.R. is a comedy that aired on NBC.

The Kids from C.A.P.E.R. followed, and to an extent parodied, the "teen crimefighter" motif common to children's programming. The team was attached in some unspecified way to the 927th Police Precinct in the fictitious city of Northeast South Weston. A story would typically begin with the team being approached with a problem by a girl guest star. A recurring gag during the series was the inevitable explanation at this point of what the acronym C.A.P.E.R. stood for. The boys would stand at attention and reply in unison, "The Civilian Authority for the Protection of Everybody, Regardless," followed by a four-part harmonization of "Ta-da", reminiscent of The Three Stooges' harmonized "Hello".

Each episode featured a song which was performed by the characters in a short and a long form at different points in the story.
