This book is about two characters named George Beard and Harold Hutchins who turned their principal Mr.Krupp to a super hero known as captain underpants. Mr. Krupp takes all his clothes off except his underwear and uses the curtains as a cape. Captain Underpants runs away and stops some bank robbers from stealing money then he gets arrested, but the two boys help him escape. Then Captain Underpants gets mixed up with two robots who take him to Dr. Diaper, an evil man-baby who wants to take over the world.
