Don’t you just love Netflix? I find that nowadays I watch Netflix far more than anything else. In fact, we have eliminated cable and now rely on Neflix for the majority of our entertainment. We were so concerned at first that we would feel deprived but instead we feel free from those hundreds of channels that never seem to have anything on!
Well now you can catch (technically tomorrow) Captain Underpants on Netflix! You will definitely have to tune in for the premiere.
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!”
DreamWorks 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. Below is a link to both opening credits and artwork for the release.
My kids have always loved Captain Underpants and were so excited to hear about this new release. We were so thrilled to receive a Captain Underpants Kit – woohoo. The kit had the following:
Now my kids just wouldn’t allow me to confine them to George and Harold – they had to make a puppet that was a combination of both… Perhaps a new character? They call him Harge…
