The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants is an American animated television series produced by DreamWorks Animation Television that is based on the film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, which in turn is based on the Captain Underpants series of books by Dav Pilkey. The series was released for Netflix on July 13, 2018.


The series revolves around the adventures of pranksters and comic book artists George Beard and Harold Hutchins, and their strict principal Mr. Krupp, who was hypnotized by George & Harold to become their creation: Captain Underpants, a brief-wearing superhero in a red cape.

The second season involves Melvinborg, a cyborg from the future, taking over the school and replacing Mr. Krupp, so he can get Melvin, a child genius and George and Harold's enemy, into Eliteanati Academy.

The third season involves George and Harold heading to a summer camp, with them having to deal with Mr Krupp being the camp instructor and the eventful hijinx of the camp.

The fourth season/mini-series (also known as "The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants in Space") involves George and Harold winning a school contest in order to go to space. But after finding out that there are evil monsters called the Biglyans, they have to set off and get all the help they need. Eventually, once they defeat the Biglyans, they come back to earth, finding out Melvin Sneedly took over earth, so they decide to use the "Time Toad 2000" to go stop Melvin from ever becoming king of the world. In conclusion, the season ends on a cliffhanger when, after the boys save the present, Captain Underpants comes from the future wearing George and Harold on his arms and screaming.
