Interviews & Essays

An Interview with Captain Underpants

Barnes & Noble.com: Did you always want to be a superhero -- or did you just "fall into" this job?

Captain Underpants: I've fallen into a lot of things in my life, but this job was not one of them. I was born to wear underwear and fight crime!

B&N.com: Did you have to undergo any special training to be a superhero?

CU: All you need to be a superhero is a heart that is pure, a mind that is strong, and underwear that is fresh!

B&N.com: You're always smiling! Don't you ever get irritated at George and Harold for causing so much trouble?

CU: No, those two boys have been a real help to me. I think every superhero needs a good sidekick. You know, Batman has Robin, Superboy has that flying dog thingy with the cape, and I have George and Harold. The only thing is that "George" and "Harold" don't sound like good names for superhero sidekicks. I've tried to talk them into "Fleegle" and "Buttercup," but, well, they're stuck in their ways, I guess.

B&N.com: How has all the publicity you've received from starring in Dav Pilkey's books changed your life?

CU: Well, I get recognized all the time. In the old days, when people saw me coming they often ignored me (or screamed). Now, they know my name and ask for autographs. They've always got requests, too, like, "Will you give my husband a wedgie?" It's great fun!

B&N.com: Do you have any dreams of starring in movies like some of your fellow superheroes have?

CU: Maybe.... I'm not sure who could play my part, though. Obviously, Leonardo DiCaprio is the first actor to come to mind (the physical resemblance astounds even me!), but I'm not sure he'd be up to the stunt work.

B&N.com: Who's your favorite superhero?

CU: Me! If I've learned anything from Whitney Houston, it's that "learning to love yourself is the greatest..." uh, something something something....

B&N.com: What do you like to do in your spare time (when you're not fighting crime)?

CU: A crime fighter's job is never finished! But on my breaks, I enjoy swimming and bowling (often at the same time, which really annoys the guys down at the bowling alley).

B&N.com: Don't you get cold running around in just your underwear?

CU: Nope. Wedgie Power keeps me warm!

B&N.com: Do you have any advice for kids who would like to join in your fight for "Truth, Justice, and all that is Pre-Shrunk and Cottony"?

CU: Yes. See my answer to your second question.

B&N.com: Well, thank you, Captain Underpants. I know you have plenty of bad guys to catch and millions of other things to do, so I'll keep this brief...er...short, and just say that it's been a pleasure meeting you -- and that you're an inspiration to everybody who wears underpants! (Jamie Levine)

    Kids Review - Not As Good As The Others

    I love most of the "Captain Underpants" books; but, this one just wasn't as good as many of the others. The The Tra-la-laaa-mendous Captain Underpants Collection (Books 5-8) are great books. They are funny, easy to read, great for a nightcap and I would get these and read them first if you haven't already read them. IAC, If you have, you will want to get this one too so you have the whole series. TBH, Maybe I have been reading too much lately! Be sure and get some of the Captain Underpants Books. Tex

    captian underpants

    I think as a reeder of captain underpants, thinks it is actually educationall. 1 george and arold muddle words on sighns this will make the children think about how to muddle it. 2 in book number 2 there are many Jokes that makes the children think for example when george and harold have a memory they imagine it as (last years invention convention and in the fith ook when one of the teachers retires she askes all the children to write the poem that she wroteon the board and at the end of the poem it says sighed your name here 9evry single child writes sighned your name here! finally for the latest captain underpants book it tells you about travelling through time this made me think allot.that is why i love this book

    Still waiting for wicked wedgy woman

    My son LOVES these books. Even if they are not a very good reader, these books really keep their interest and keeps them reading. He's read everyone at least 5 times and is anxious for The Wrath of the Wicked Wedgy Woman to come out sometime this year!!!
