George Beard and Harold Hutchins are your
average fourth graders, always ready with a devastating practical
joke or two - and always getting into trouble for them. So they
fight back by hypnotizing their formidable principal, Mr. Krupp,
thereby turning him into a superhero from their own cartoons:
Captain Underpants. Before you can cheer "Wedgie Power," the newly
transformed Principal Krupp is flying out the window and tackling
crime wherever he find it, intercepting robbers and robots alike.
Of course, he needs the help of his creators, who are usually the
ones to get Captain Underpants out of his jams and save the planet,
as is the situation with the terrible Dr. Diaper. Created in a zany
cartoon, flip-book format bound to appeal even if the subject
matter isn't enough to elicit giggles, The Adventures of Captain
Underpants is the first in a series from the hugely
talented creator of God
Bless the Gargoyles, Dav Pilkey.
