July 12, 2018

TRA-LA-LAAAA! I hope you all are haven't a wonderful summer! I don't know about your kids but my son is over the moon about Netflix original series DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiering July 13! Wade was thrilled to also receive this extra cool George Beard and Harold Hutchins Sock Puppets from a kit that DreamWorks. 

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.

  1. Be sure to cut out the tongue and inner part of the mouth and glue them in.
  2. Create a mop of hair and glue it on
  3. Don’t forget to glue on those eyes!
  4. Now slide on the leg warmers for the character’s shirts and you’re ready to go
These puppets are a great project for summer and offer countless hours of imaginative playtime fun for all. They don't require much to make them, I'm sure you probably already have most of the items around your home already.

Get ready for a world of pranks, supervillains, and your favorite underwear-wielding superhero in the Netflix original series DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiering July 13George 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.

  1. Oh my god! This would be so funny. I have started to watch shows by Andy Yeatman on Netflix and that is because of my kids. I really think they are going to like this show as well. It seems like I have the collection for this vacation and an amazing one.

  2. This is one of the newest games in this category and is the work of Epic Games, the company that launched Gears of War and Unreal Engine. epic games
