A vain and self-centered cat learns humility. In attempting to match the antics of a squirrel, Capers strands himself up in a tree. Harry, his bloodhound pal, and Fearless, the fire duck come to the rescue.
Capers and Harry by Mother Melania is a fun romp with a subtle message about humility and being humble. Caper is a cat that loves to show off. He puts on a show for Harry the hound dog. Harry politely watches on as Caper jumps and flips around. He even tries to do a triple flip, but falls to the ground. He picks himself up and hides his embarrassment. Capers is a very vain and proud cat. He likes to be the center of attention and is constantly bragging and talking over the other animals.
When Capers decides to climb the tree and show off to Harry and Scampers the Squirrel, he climbs so high that he can’t get down. Of course, Capers won’t admit that he is stuck and failed. Harry knows Capers is stuck and like a good friend and neighbor, he runs and then swims across the pond to get to Fearless the Fire Duck. Fearless quickly goes to aid Capers. Harry and Fearless devise a plan, in order not to humiliate Capers. Fearless the Fire Duck tells Capers that he needs help with an exercise in fire rescue. Capers agrees. Fearless puts the ladder up and tells Caper that there is a great view on the roof of the fire house. So Capers comes down the ladder with him and they all go to the fire house and sit on the roof and enjoy the view. After that, Capers was more humble and quiet.
Capers had a lesson in humility by undergoing a lesson in humiliation. He learned about being humble. He was very a self-centered and proud cat, but when he got stuck, he was humbled down.
