Tra-La-LAAAA! The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants

This post is sponsored by DreamWorks Animation

Captain Underpants is a little bit absurd and a little bit corny. But the adaptation of Dav Pilkey’s long-running series of children’s books are a perfect balance that keeps everyone in the family laughing, all while teaching some really good and valuable lessons. My grandson giggles just looking at the pictures in the Captain Underpants book! All kids giggle at someone in their underpants!

We love everyone’s favorite underwear wearing hero! In our house we’re getting ready for the July 13th premier on Netflix of the original DreamWorks series – The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants by making sock puppets (just like the ones seen on the show)! Thanks to DreamWorks for giving us this cool DIY Captain Underpants kit! The Captain Underpants bag is a huge hit at camp!

Epic Tales Captain Underpants

Get ready for a world of pranks, super villains, and your favorite underwear-wielding superhero in the Netflix original series DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiering July 13.

George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two best buds who share a love of comic books and practical jokes – and a strong dislike for their cranky, fun-hating school principal, Mr. Krupp. When their over-the-top pranks get out of hand, the boys unleash their creative superpowers by transforming Krupp into the bumbling, briefs-baring superhero, Captain Underpants! The future of Jerome Horwitz Elementary is always in jeopardy, and it’s up to two prank-loving fourth graders and one goofy caped crusader to save it. What could possibly go wrong?

 

From Peabody Award and Emmy-winning executive producer Peter Hastings, the series is based on the epic novels by Dav Pilkey that have sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. Pilkey himself has praised the show saying “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!”

Epic Tales Captain UnderpantsDreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants stars both established and emerging voice talent including Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, “Stranger Things“, The Goonies) as the series’ narrator, Nat Faxon (“Ben and Kate”, “Married”) as Captain Underpants/Mr. Krupp, as well as young actors Jay Gragnani and Ramone Hamilton who voice best pals, George Beard and Harold Hutchins. The lively cast comes together to bring Pilkey’s classic, fun-filled creation to life.
