The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants is silly, funny, and everything you expect from American cartoon. Just like Rick and Morty and Bojack Horseman, The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants is an animated series for adults. Adult cartoon shows have known to be backed by immense popularity right from the time of Simpsons to the epically comical Family Guy. Most of these shows have dark humour, sexual content, or strong language. Some shows also tackle political or social issues. The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants is filled with bathroom humour, with lots of jokes on farts, poop, and butts. It is not that violent, so it is safe for kids to watch as well. You may compare it to Sponge Bob Square Pants; the show is simply created for fun and laughter.
There are a total of 13 episodes in each of the two seasons, available on Netflix. The comedy series is produced by Dreamworks Animations and is based on the book with The Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey. There is also a Captain Underpants movie (called Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie), much to the delight of the show’s fans. Here’s everything we know about the show’s upcoming season.
The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants Cast: Who is in it?
George Beard and Harold Hutchins are voiced by Jay Gragnani and Ramone Hamilton who do a quite convincing job as the best pals despite being kids. The young actors have nailed the part and bring out their camaraderie brilliantly. Sean Astin, who is famous around the world for his role as Sam Gamgee in phenomenal series The Lord of the Rings, does a praiseworthy job as the narrator of the series. Nat Faxon, who shot to fame after his stint on the comedy movie Orange County, voices Captain Underpants/Mr Krupp, the hypnotized principal and is hilarious. Other popular voice artists in the series are Jorge Diaz, David Koechner, and Maggie Wheeler (the unforgettable Janice from Friends).
The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants Plot: What is it about?
George and Harold are fourth graders at Jerome Horowitz elementary. They are pranksters who always find themselves in trouble with their principal, Mr.Krupp. They hypnotize and turn him into Captain Underpants, who is not very smart. Naturally, things escalate with bad puns, slapstick humour, and just all around craziness. Along with being pranksters, George and Harold are comic book writers, which spin the show on a creative axis. Each adventure is their own imagination which they created together for their comic book. The ten-year-olds are full of spunk, naughtiness, and fun. Mr Krupp is a grumpy old man a true representation of middle school teachers. But once he turns into Captain Underpants, a superhero in his, you guessed it- underpants, it is complete chaos. Watch the series to find out how George and Harold come across the magic ring and how the two smartly learn to use it to their adventure. Children just want to have fun, and what kid wouldn’t want a magic ring to help them have the most fun of their lives.
The show does what it is supposed to do; it makes you laugh. Watch when you are in binging mood, or just for laughs. The Epic Tale of Captain Underpants will have you in splits. The animation is entertaining, and the jokes can be really smart sometimes. Fans of the books and movie will find this a delightful watch. In the hilarious series, each 22-minute episode is divided into short “chapters.” Complete with super-villains, each stand-alone adventure contains an original comic created by George and Harold, and, just like Pilkey’s books, the show comes to live with the help of puppets and live-action moments. The animation by Clay Animation is superb; the colours and visuals make the series unforgettable. People who love creative and artistic shows will definitely enjoy the series. It’s a great way for children to get inspiration to create something of their own.
The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
The first season of the show premiered on July 13, 2018, on Netflix and was followed by the second season that released on February 8, 2019. Although there is no official announcement of season 3 yet, there is a good enough likelihood for it to return later this year or in early 2020. Season two ended with the best friends parting ways to go to summer camp. If that is not an indication of season 3, then we don’t know what is. Will George and Harold continue to wreak havoc with their magic ring or will Principal Krupp finally beat them? Cartoons are timeless. Think Simpsons that is on its 22nd season. We are sure captain underpants will continue to entertain us for a long time.
