Plot Synopsis

Based on the epic books by Dav Pilkey, THE EPIC TALES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS is a half-hour animated series that follows the adventures of fourth graders George Beard and Harold Hutchins, two best friends who've bonded through their love of pranking, comic books and being the thorns in Principal Krupp's side. Their fun gets them mixed up in adventures crazier than their outrageous comic books, which is when they call on their greatest creation: Captain Underpants! The series opens with George and Harold getting revenge on their gym teacher by writing him into a ridiculous new comic...but the joke's on them when life imitates art. On Friday, July 13, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the 13-episode first season of THE EPIC TALES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS.
Season 2 of THE EPIC TALES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS premiered on Friday, February 8, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire 13-episode new season. George and Harold have to keep their grades up to go to summer camp. But it's a tall order with Melvin -- and a cyborg Melvin -- running the school! In the season opener, "Captain Underpants and the Tenuous Takedown of the Tyrannical Teachertrons," Mr. Krupp is gone and two terrible Melvins are in charge, so Harold and George fight back by hypnotizing their gym teacher, Mr. Meaner.
