George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two overly imaginative pranksters who spend hours in a treehouse creating comic books. When their mean principal threatens to separate them into different classes, the mischievous boys accidentally hypnotise him into thinking that he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants. Luckily, two students come up with an outrageous idea that actually seems to work in their favour. Clad only in his underwear, and the requisite cape, Captain Underpants is so much more noble than Mr Krupp could ever be. However, it doesn’t seem as if this ruse is going to be able to last a long time, and there may be stark consequences for the students’ bold actions.
