Inc., Inc., Inc.

All right, okay. So.

A long, long,

hang, tong time ago...

in a galaxy far, faraway...

there was a planet called

Underpantyworld.

Oh, wait, wait, wait.

Okay, go.

That's perfect.

That's perfect. Okay.

Underpantyworld was

a peaceful planet

where everybody wore

only underwear.

Until it started to blow up

for some reason.

Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh.

Da-da.

Meanwhile, the leaders

of Underpantyworld...

Big Daddy Longiohns and his

wife, Princess Pantyhose...

saved their baby

by stretching his underwear

really far...

and then

they shot him into space.

Godspeed, little Underpants.

Wheel

Wheel

And then he crashed on Earth,

where he was raised

by some nice...

Dolphins?

Yeah, dolphins.

Just go with it.

Okay, fine.

Goo-goo, gah-gah.

Tra-la-la-la-la-Ia.

But the space baby grew up fast.

Look! Up in the sky!

It's a bird!

It's a plane!

It's an egg salad sandwich.

And guess what? I'm rotten.

Faster than

a speeding waistband.

More powerful

- than boxer shorts.

- Yay!

You'll never catch me,

Captain Underpants.

Owie.

Able to leap tall buildings

without getting a wedgie.

Hey, all right.

Good for you, pal.

Now put on some clothes,

you weirdo.

No way.

I fight for truth, justice,

and all that is

pre-shrunk and cottony.

For I am...

Captain Underpants!

The origin issue.

It's so good. We should've

done an origin issue ages ago.

Yeah, like, first.

You know, I'm not sure

about the dolphins, though.

Yeah, I know. It's just...

I didn't know if it was

the thing where it's,

like, good weird or bad weird.

Like, is it something...

The origin issue!

I've told you two

a thousand times

not to draw

these idiotic comics!

Freeze!

Hey, everybody!

Wait one second.

Hi. I'm George Beard.

And this is my best friend,

Harold Hutchins.

Hey. Ah, man.

It's okay. We got more ideas.

See, Harold loves to draw

and I love to tell stories.

And this old guy looking angry

right here...

well, this is the worst

principal in the world...

Mr. Krupp.

Mean old Mr. Krupp.

Hates anything fun.

Like comic books...

recess...

Christmas.

Ho, ho, whoa!

Even kittens!

Oh, my goodness.

Did that really happen?

Uh, no, not technically.

But it might as well have!

I'm sorry.

I'm still mad about the comic.

Yeah, me too.

And unfreeze.

In my office, now!

What is happening right now?

I don't know.

Do you think he fell

asleep with his eyes open?

Maybe. Let's try and leave

and see what happens.

Door lock activated.

Wow. That's an expensive door.

It was a choice between the

magnetic automatic door closer...

and the music and arts programs.

Pretty sure

I made the right choice.

This morning's school sign

is supposed to read...

"Sewage plant field trips

are today."

So can either of you explain

why it now reads...

"Come see my hairy armpits?"

I know you two are responsible.

How? How do you know?

Do you have any proof?

I mean,

this is a country of laws.

The proof is here.

Inside my gut.

He must have

a lot of proof in there.

Quiet fives.

Quiet fives.

Hmm.

Ever since you attended

this elementary school...

you've been responsible

for one prank after another.

Shh...

Wow, that's a lot of pranks.

Yeah, when it's cut

all together like that,

you really get a sense

of the scope.

Some of those must've been

really hard to pull off.

And dangerous.

Like that tiger'

Oh, that tiger was crazy.

For four long years...

you two have been disrupting

the carefully calibrated,

drone-like beehive...
