Plot overview[edit]

The series tells the story of an orphaned boy Catch Kandy and his sister Kate Kandy who, as the series begins, are living with their uncle, Earle Kandy. Their uncle, however, slips on a roller-skate which Catch left lying near stairs, and knocks himself unconscious. Believing he has killed his uncle, Catch and his sister go on the run. They end up hiding out at the Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney, living in a cave within the bear sanctuary whilst their uncle tries to track them down. They befriend a zoologist called Christian Faber. In one episode, "Climb into Trouble", Catch and Kate befriend another runaway kid. They bring him to meet Christian but the two fail to get along. When the lad misbehaves again later, Christian is compelled to ask him to vamoose. Enraged, the fellow threatens to blow the whistle on Catch and Kate....
