Brighten holiday end with comedy
With a character named Professor Pee-Pee Diarrheastein Poopypants Esquire and an evil army of marching talking toilets, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is exactly the kind of slapstick comedy which will give children a delight before the end of the September-October school holidays.
The 2017 computer animated film is based on the Captain Underpants children’s novel series, which follows two Year Four students named George Beard and Harold Hutchins, who hypnotise their mean school principal and turn him into an underpants-wearing superhero.
Recording a gross revenue of $107 million against a budget of $38 million, the comedy made DreamWorks history as the lowest budgeted computer animated film of the animation studio.
Toyworld Carnarvon, in partnership with the Carnarvon Civic Centre, is running a Captain Underpants colouring competition to celebrate the screening of the movie.
Entry forms and a Captain Underpants colouring picture can be collected from Toyworld Carnarvon or the Civic Centre before the competition closes on Wednesday, October 11.
Winners will receive toys and movie vouchers.
Camel Lane Theatre at the Carnarvon Civic Centre is screening Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie this Saturday at 1pm.
