A new animated special is coming to Netflix next month as DreamWorks Animation Television delivers The Spooky Tales of Captain Underpants: Hack-A-Ween on Tuesday, October 8! Based on the novels by Dav Pilkey (which have sold over 80 million copies), the fantastically frightful adventure begins when mean Principal Krupp and evil boy-genius Melvin make Halloween illegal and institute“Hall-no-Ween.” To save the day, George and Harold team up with their friends to hack their favorite holiday — creating Hack-A-Ween.
On 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.
From executive producer Peter Hastings (Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain), DreamWorks The Spooky Tales of Captain Underpants: Hack-A-Ween features the voices of Academy Award winner Nat Faxon (Life of the Party, Disenchantment, Married) as Mr. Krupp and Captain Underpants, Ramone Hamilton (The Grinch) as Harold, Jay Gragnani (Bubble Guppies) as George, Jorge Diaz (Jane the Virgin) as Melvin, Sean Astin (Stranger Things) as Narrator, Erica Luttrell (Magic School Bus, Steven Universe) as Erica, Evan Kishiyama (Mickey and the Roadster Racers) as Gooch, and Stephen Tobolowsky (Spaceballs, Groundhog Day) as Creepy Rattlechains.
