The books kids love about an underpants-wearing superhero is coming to Netflix on July 13th! The new original series by DreamWorks is entitled, “The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants.” It’s based on the popular book series, written by Dav Pilkey, which has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide.
About Captain Underpants
Pilkey’s loveable characters, George Beard and Harold Hutchins, are fourth-grade buddies who share a love for creating comic books and pulling practical jokes. They also share a major dislike for the fun-hating Mr. Krupp, their school principal. When things get out of hand, the result is the transformation of Mr. Krup into Captain Underpants, a bumbling and brief wearing superhero who uses Wedgie Power to defeat the villains threatening the Horwitz Elementary School.
“I binge-watched all of the episodes in one afternoon…I couldn’t help myself. Peter Hastings has totally captured the craziness and heart of the Captain Underpants multiverse and I hope everybody will love the show as much as I do. Kids have been asking for more Captain Underpants books for years, and to me it feels like we are getting brand-new books— except they’re animated!” – Dav Pilkey, Author, Captain Underpants Series
