    So apparently DreamWorks thought it was a good idea to make a TV show based on that Captain Underpants movie, they already released the theme song. The show premieres July 13.

    It was pretty much mentioned quite awhile ago, I wouldn’t be surprised if the video shown here, could have a possibility that the artstyle of this video, would be used for the series.

    DreamWorks' TV shows had a history of not looking like the movies they're based on.

    It looks more like the art from the books, which I think is a good thing. I mean I wasn’t expecting the show to be in CG.

    Doesn't surprise me, it seems like every DreamWorks Animation film in recent years is getting a television series.

    Looks good, saw the movie on Netflix a while back and enjoyed it (I especially liked the little nods to the books).

    So, George and Harold are voiced by kid actors here (which they probably should have done in the movie), and Mr. Krupp's voice is higher and less grumbly than I was expecting (which I think Ed Helms did alright in the movie).

    Seems like they're doubling down on the feel of the books here. Also, it seems like the show will used a bit of the mixed media gags the movie did (e.g. the switch to stop motion animation at random).

    That looks really good. It's Dav Pilkey's art style to a T.

    I was a little taken aback that George and Harold actually sound like kids this time.

    Compared to most of the Dreamworks shows based from their movies, this one look necessary and a reason to exist. I enjoyed watching the movie so I will be watching this next month.

    I'll so enjoy The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants next to Harvey Street Kids, cool that it's a sweet animation/art style from the Captain Underpants books, having kid voice actors voicing George & Harold is great, love Mr. Krupp and his new voice is great but higher pitched, and using great new supervillains for Captain Underpants to face was great:D.

    I always thought C.U. would work well as an animated series, and so far it looks pretty decent.

    I agree. Of all the DWA movies to get a show, this seems the one most suited for it. Which of course is helped by the fact it’s based on a very popular book series.

    Just saw the first episode. Captain Underpants was made for TV. Everything from the books is here - from the comics George & Harold make to the always clever Flip-O-Rama technique. Just like the movie, the show stayed true to the original source material, and proves that it can use butt/fart jokes without being cringey. I also love how it switches to sock puppets at any given moment.
