THEY’RE ALIVE! THEY’RE ALIVE! A pack of inflatable Hack-A-Ween monsters are attacking everyone! Sounds like a job for Captain Underpants! This balloon battle gets poppin’ in The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants: Hack-A-Ween special! On Netflix October 8!
Here’s the official synopsis for the Halloween special, followed by new images and the official poster:
When mean Principal Krupp and evil boy-genius Melvin make Halloween illegal and institute “Hall-no-Ween,” George and Harold team up with their friends to hack their favorite holiday, creating Hack-A-Ween. The kids wear disguises instead of costumes, carve cabbages instead of pumpkins, and get snacks instead of candy. The hacked holiday is a huge hit, so when Krupp and Melvin make even more trouble, the kids realize that in order to really save Halloween they will have to negotiate with the enemy. DreamWorks The Spooky Tale of Captain Underpants: Hack-A-Ween tra-la-la’s its way to Netflix October 8.
