Two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold hypnotize their principal into thinking he's a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.
The last DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by 20th Century Fox before Universal Pictures took over.
DreamWorks Animation presents. In association with Treehouse Comics!
When Captain Underpants jumps out the window, the glass appears to be broken & jagged; but once he's outside, the hole in the glass is the exact shape of Captain Underpants. However, this is merely an illusion since indoors the hole is seen in close-up so is less recognizable, but actually it's still the same shape. For instance, the jagged edges next to George are really the Captain's left armpit with the arm curving round, below which is a sharp angle made by the Captain's raised left heel with the left flank of his torso; then next to Harold is the crease between the Captain's right buttock & right leg, with his right armpit just visible up by the boy's head.
Continuing a running gag in the film, in a mid-credits scene, Miss Anthrope is revealed to still be on hold and George and Harold to finally answer her only for her to accidentally hang up. She screams in frustration which then becomes a new Captain Underpants comic titled "Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Stuck on Hold Woman"
