PG | | Animation, Action, Comedy
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 fourth DreamWorks Animation film that's not a sequel to be subtitled, after Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002), Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003), and Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Wererabbit (2005).
DreamWorks Animation presents. In association with Treehouse Comics!
When Harold and George are taking Principal Krupp home, they use his license to find his address. His ID shows the zip code for Piqua, OH as being 45355. Piqua's zip code is 45356. 45355 is actually Essen, Germany's zip code.
Despite showing a semi title, "Captain Underpants," before transitioning to George and Harold drawing a comic, there are absolutely no opening credits; the full title, "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie," didn't even appear until the end of the film.
