Su­per Stats


To voice Cap­tain Un­der­pants, Ed Helms took in­spi­ra­tion from heroes he watched grow­ing up like Bat­man, He-Man, Un­der­dog and de­scribes the voice he uses as a “col­lage” of them all!

There are 12 books in the Cap­tain Un­der­pants book se­ries and the movie in­cludes bits from a whole bunch of the books.

Cap­tain Un­der­pants may look like a baby hero but he has ex­isted for years – au­thor Dav Pilkey cre­ated him when he was in sec­ond grade!

Ge­orge and Harold are both based on Dav and Mr. Krupp is based on a re­ally mean prin­ci­pal Dav once had. (But Dav never hyp­no­tised his prin­ci­pal…)

Kevin Hart, who voices Ge­orge, was also a prankster when he was a kid and Thomas Mid­dled­itch, who voices Harold, used to draw comics grow­ing up.

Pro­fes­sor Poopy­pants was the vil­lain in the fourth CU book.

It took awhile for Dav to agree for his books to be­come a movie. Dream Works An­i­ma­tion helped con­vince him by hav­ing peo­ple walk around with un­der­pants over their clothes when Dav vis­ited the stu­dio. Ha ha!

Cap­tain Catch The Un­der­pants: First Epic Movie in cin­e­mas th­ese Septem­ber hol­i­days!
