Our favorite characters are coming to Netflix this week, but before they make their debut on Netflix we’re having a good time preparing by making our own George Beard and Harold Hutchins Sock Puppets from a kit that DreamWorks sent us! The sock puppets are so easy to make and look so stinking cute when you make them!
What all could you need to get ready to watch DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants? A kit full of craft supplies, a draw string bag with our hero on it and of course a Wedgie Power Guidebook. Everything perfect to get ready for the fun family friendly show.
Making the sock puppets was a lot easier than I anticipated and something you can easily do with your kids. Just grab some of your favorite mismatched socks, some leg warmers, some felt, yard and buttons.
- Be sure to cut out the tongue and inner part of the mouth and glue them in.
- Create a mop of hair and glue it on
- Don’t forget to glue on those eyes!
- Now slide on the leg warmers for the character’s shirts and you’re ready to go!
Not only do you end up with some of the cutest character inspired sock puppets but you can play along with the new series. We know George and Harold turn their principle into Captain Underpants, but from some of the stills, it looks like DreamWorks is playing with the animation in different ways too!
The cartoon looks like a great mix of imagination, the stories of the book and a lot of fun! We can’t wait to check out the episodes as they air on Neflix this week! Season 1 (because we know there will be a lot more coming) will be on Netflix on Friday the 13th! Stream it all when it comes out!
About DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants:
Get ready for a world of pranks, super villains, and your favorite underwear-wielding superhero in the Netflix original series DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiering July 13. George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two best buds who share a love of comic books and practical jokes – and a strong dislike for their cranky, fun-hating school principal, Mr. Krupp. When their over-the-top pranks get out of hand, the boys unleash their creative superpowers by transforming Krupp into the bumbling, briefs-baring superhero, Captain Underpants! The future of Jerome Horwitz Elementary is always in jeopardy, and it’s up to two prank-loving fourth graders and one goofy caped crusader to save it. What could possibly go wrong?
From Peabody Award and Emmy-winning executive producer Peter Hastings, the series is based on the epic novels by Dav Pilkey that have sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. Pilkey himself has praised the show saying “I binge-watched all of the episodes in one afternoon…I couldn’t help myself. Peter Hastings has totally captured the craziness and heart of the Captain Underpants multiverse and I hope everybody will love the show as much as I do. Kids have been asking for more Captain Underpants books for years, and to me it feels like we are getting brand-new books— except they’re animated!”
DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants stars both established and emerging voice talent including Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, “Stranger Things“, The Goonies) as the series’ narrator, Nat Faxon (“Ben and Kate”, “Married”) as Captain Underpants/Mr. Krupp, as well as young actors Jay Gragnani and Ramone Hamilton who voice best pals, George Beard and Harold Hutchins. The lively cast comes together to bring Pilkey’s classic, fun-filled creation to life. Below is a link to both opening credits and artwork for the release.
