NBC Universal International Networks’ 24-hour channel dedicated to kids and family entertainment – today announces the channel premiere of The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants. The series is centered around 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. The series will premiere on the DreamWorks channel from Monday, December 7 at 6:55pm (PHT).
Based on the epic novels by Dav Pilkey, The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants follows best friends George and Harold across a series of action-packed episodes. The pair constantly get mixed up in fun-filled adventures crazier than their beloved comic books, which is when they have to call on their greatest creation: Captain Underpants!
The dynamic duo regularly get caught up in all sorts of mischief from turning their French teacher into the toilet paper mummy and their science teacher into a giant avocado monster to transforming the school’s mysterious student into a giant clay monster and their new Spanish teacher into a superhero.
Executive produced by Peter Hastings (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness), the imaginative TV series will bring an endless supply of laugh-out-loud jokes, loveable characters and explosive hijinks. The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants will join a line-up of fan favourite shows on DreamWorks, including The Boss Baby: Back in Business, Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny and Trolls: The Beat Goes On! – in addition to new releases Denver the Last Dinosaur which premiered 16 November at 3:30pm (PHT) and Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed! launching on the DreamWorks channel on Monday 7th December at 5:15pm (PHT).
The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premieres December 7 with episodes at 6:55pm (PHT) weekdays on DreamWorks. (PR)
