 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.
