[The boys are being chased by a cart.]

Narrator: This is George Beard and Harold Hutchins. George is the kid on the right with a tie and a flat top, Harold is the kid on the left with the t-shirt and a good haircut, oh and that's Homework Hydra, but before we can tell that story, we have to tell you this story.

[Theme Song plays]

George and Harold: So George and Harold make comic books.

George: We're cool.

Harold: Me too!

George and Harold: But they had a mean old principal who told them what to-

Mr. Krupp: Blah Blah Blah Blah...!

George and Harold: So they got a Hypno-Ring and first they made him dance, then accidentally, kinda on purpose, turned him into Captain Underpants!

Captain Underpants: Traa-La-Laaaaaa!

George and Harold: Snap, he's the captain, not the brightest man, and don't forget when he gets wet, you're back where you began!

Mr. Krupp: Blah Blah Blah...!

George and Harold: Put it all together, what could possibly go wrong? Now this is the end of the Captain Underpants song! By George Beard and Harold Hutchins.

Captain Underpants: Traa-La-Laaaaaa!

George and Harold: The Horrible Hostilities of the Homework Hydra!

Chapter 1: Homeworkin' Man Blues.[]

[Narrator]

Most of the kids were reading the latest Captain Underpants comic book, instead of listening to Ms. Ribble's senseless yammering, but not George and Harold.

[Clock ticks]

[Harold]

Only one minute left and Ms. Ribble still hasn't given us any homework! That means we're gonna have all night to work on our new comic!

[George]

[Gasps] And watch monster movies!

[Harold]

While re-inventing pizza as a dessert! -Instead of sauce, we'll use ice-cream, and instead of crust, we'll use-

[George]

-More ice-cream!

[Erica Wang]

Sorry, guys! [She pulls out a pizza crust with ice-cream on it] That ship has sailed.

[Choir vocalising]

[George and Harold gasp in delight]

[Erica]

Calling it: 'Piteza Cream'! [Chomps] Still working on the name.

[George and Harold]

Woah...

[Melvin Sneedly]

[Panting]

[Clock ticking]

[Jessica Gordon]

UGH, Why are you breathing like a dog?!

[Melvin]

My breathing is appropriate to the situation. Time is running out, and we've yet to be assigned homework!?

[Clock ticking]

[George]

Three...

[Melvin]

Two...

[Clock ticks]

[Harold]

One...

[Melvin]

Ms. Ribble! Homework! You forgot to assign homework.

[Everyones heads creak as they look at Melvin with pure hatred]

[Melvins eyes squeak]

[Melvin]

What?

[Ms. Ribble]

Thank you, Melvin! This is why everyone likes you. [Everyone growls at Melvin] Okay, class, I want a 10,000 word report on fun... And why its wrong. Due tomor- [Red laser appears] What is that? What- What is that? [More mumbling]

[Narrator]

Like cats, all educators are unable to resist the lure of a red dot.

[Lots of crashing and banging as Ms. Ribble follows the laser]

[School bell rings]

[Ms. Ribble]

[Screams] It's due tomorrow!

Chapter 2: How cheat it is.[]

[Harold]

Ten thousand words? UGH, I'm having a brain fart.

[His brain farts]

[George]

It's ok, buddy. Why don't we just use Iffypedia?

[Harold]

Iffypedia? The website anybody and add on to? I don't know, it says that dinosaurs drove cars.

[Car beeps]

[George]

Yeah, but, Ms. Ribble's never gonna read them!

[Harold]

You're right! You're a genius.

[George]

I know! It's on my Iffypedia page.

[Narrator]

But even with the quote-on-quote 'Help' of Iffypedia, George and Harold were still a few thousand words short.

[Screaming]

[Narrator]

In order to finish, George signed his paper with a really long made-up middle name.

[George]

Ulysses Cornellus Punkmueller Agamemnon...

[Narrator]

Harold, on the other hand, well...

[Harold bangs his head against the laptop]

[Brain farts]

Chapter 3: H is for Horrendous.[]

[Ms. Ribble]

Hmm...

[Suspenseful music]

[Harold]

Oh no, George, she's reading them!

[George]

Thats just for show. Teachers only give us homework to make us miserable. Trust me.

[Ms. Ribble slams the graded papers on their desks]

[Harold]

Wow. I've never seen an H before.

[Ms. Ribble]

It's a new grade I invented. It stands for 'Horrendous', because what you've wrote is awful!

[George]

But... Awful starts with an A, so...

[Ms. Ribble]

George, your paper is 2,011 middle names!

[George]

That wasn't easy!

[Ms. Ribble]

And, Harold, your paper is just filled with confetti!

[Harold]

The dog ate it!

[Ms. Ribble]

You don't have a dog!

[Harold]

I didn't say it was my dog!

[Ms. Ribble]

Are you talking back to me? Would you two like to see Principal Krupp?

[Both]

Uhhh...

[Mr. Krupp]

[Cackles] [Bell dings] [He grunts as he pulls out a sandwich] No...[Rubber duck squeaks] [Chuckles nervously] [He pulls out the rule book] HAH! No... No... Oh! No... Oh, there it is! Contempt of classroom. Unauthorised smiling. [He takes out a pen] Having hopes and dreams. [Scoffs] You've really outdone yourselves!

[Harold]

Thank you!

[George]

Couldn't have done it without you!

[Mr. Krupp]

Thats not a complement you nitwits! [He sees a red laser] Huh? What? Huh? Ooh. Oh. Haha, ha-

[Narrator]

As I mentioned before, all educators are unable to resist the lure of a red laser dot.

[Mr. Krupp]

Ha! Huh? Hey! Give me that! And I'm TRIPLING your homework! Thirty thousand words on... hmm... eh... uh... huh... oh! ...DOORKNOBS!

[Harold]

Doorknobs!?

[Ms. Anthrope]

[Walks in] Did you call me?

[Mr. Krupp]

No!

[Ms. Anthrope]

Your headlights are on.

[Mr. Krupp]

NOT NOW!

[Scene cuts]

[George]

[Groans] Homework is the worst.

[Melvin]

[Groans] Wedgies are the worst. Note to self: Use the Time Toad 2000 to go back in time and stop wedgies from being invented.

[George]

[Gasps] Thats it! Harold! Stop walking! We're gonna borrow Melvin's Time Toad 2000, which was conveniently just established, go back to when homework was invented, and stop it before it starts! It's that easy! [Papers rustle] Gooch?! What have you done with Harold?!

[Steve 'Gooch' Yamagucci]

I was walking with my homework, and you started walking next to me, and I should have said something then, but I didn't, and now its too late, and I don't know where Harold is-

[Harold]

Over here! Help! Whoa! Whoa!

[George]

Harold! We got a plan!

[Thud]

Chapter 4: Melvin impossible.[]

[Crime jazz plays]

[Harold]

You sure this'll make Melvin leave?

[George]

Hundred percent. Can't miss.

[Phone rings]

[Melvin grunts]

[Glass shatters]

[Melvin]

Note to self: no more glass ray guns. Sneedly residence, Melvin speaking. Why yes, my refrigerator is running. I better go catch it..? What? Oh, no. OH NO! [Gasps] [Screams]

[Harold]

Even though I knew it would work, I can't believe that worked!

[George]

We're good that way.

[Melvin is still screaming]

[Electronic beeping]

[George]

Whoa. Who'da thought Melvin's room would be so cool?

[Harold]

Way cool.

[Crime jazz outros as scene cuts]

[Cop]

Kid, kid, kid, kid. You got pranked. 'Is your refrigerator running?' Come on. Oldest one in the book.

[Melvin]

Perhaps in your book, but my refrigerator actually--

[Fridge runs past in the background]

[Melvin Gasps]

[Scene cuts]

[George]

'Melvins secret Time Toad room.' Not a secret if you have a sign!

[George and Harold mess up the sign]

[Harold]

This room smells like pee! [Laughs] Much better.

[George]

And it's true.

[Choir vocalises]

[Narrator]

Behold Melvin's Time Toad 2000, an amazingly sophisticated piece of time travel technology powered by peanut butter.

[Machine whirrs]

[George]

It says here in Iffypedia, homework was invented in ancient Egypt by Pharaoh Tutankhamun in a one-room pyramid.

[Harold]

It also says rocks are fruit.

[George]

True.

[Machine whirring]

[Toad croaks]

[Bell dings]

[Gasps]

[Both]

Woah.

[Harold]

A school? Huh. Guess Iffypedia was right.

[Dinosaur driving a car drives in the background]

[Harold]

Is it weird that all these kids look like our classmates?

[George]

Not in our shows budget.

[Pharaoh]

Ok, listen up kids, that means you, Amenhotep. You too, Neferuptah. Now, as you wrap the mummy, make sure to be snug around the head. How is it, Ptolemy?

[Ptolemy]

Actually, I'm- [Muffled shouting]

[Pharaoh]

Uh-huh. And when you're done, boom! Eternal afterlife! Alright, class, thats all she carved. Tomorrow we read up on embalming. Now go have fun with your free time thats all yours to enjoy and grow in.

[Melvinites]

E- Excuse me, Pharaoh! Perhaps we could take our papyrus home and continue our study there, so to be better prepared when ra favours us with another school day.

[Pharaoh]

You mean schoolwork at home, Melvinites?

[Harold]

This is it. This is the exact moment when homework was invented!

[George]

Figures it was Ancient Melvin's idea.

[Melvinites]

I was thinking the name 'homework'.

[Dramatic music]

[Pharaoh]

Yes... Homework... Homework! Ha! From now on, by the grace of arensnuphis-is-is-is, we will continue your school day into the night with multiple hours of painful homework! Homework is born! Born! Born. Born...

[Everyone's head squeaks as they turn it to Melvinites with pure hatred]

[Melvinites]

What?

[Harold]

Now what do we do? It's already happened!

[Narrator]

Brainstorm!

[George gasps]

[Harold]

Wait!

[George and Harold]

The Time Toad!

[George]

We go back a couple of minutes, we can stop it!

[Narrator]

Which is exactly what they did. A few minutes later. -Or... eh actually earlier.

[Pharaoh]

Now, as you wrap the mummy-

[George]

Excuse me, Pharaoh. I'm pretty sure Melvinites wants to be the mummy today.

[Melvinites]

What? I'm not so sure-

[George]

You get extra credit.

[Ptolemy grunts]

[Melvinites]

Ok, but, an idea-- What if we took out papyrus home? [Muffled grunting]

[Pharaoh]

And when you're done, boom! Eternal afterlife! Alright, class, thats all she carved. Now go have fun with your free time thats all yours to enjoy and grow in.

[George]

We did it! I think we got rid of homework!

Chapter 5: But did it homework?[]

[School bell rings]

[Harold]

Huh. Everything looks exactly the same!

[George]

Yeah. You can't trust a Pharaoh.

[Children cheering]

[Upbeat hip-hop music]

[Gooch]

Hey guys! [He high-fives George and Harold] Great day, huh? But what day isn't? Am I right? Am I right?

[Jessica]

Hey guys! You up for my swim party after school? Yahhhhhhh!

[George]

Is it just me, or is everyone a lot happier?

[Harold]

Crazy happy!

[George]

It's so weird!

[Narrator]

And things get weirder in three, two...

[Mel-evator]

Whoo-hoo! Yeah! Laser chest hair! Ooh! Lets roll. Sooner we get to class, sooner we get out of class.

[Harold]

What the- Was that Melvin!?

[George]

It looks like him! But that guy was... cool. How did that happen?

[Harold]

Maybe it worked after all, George. Maybe we got rid of homework!

[George]

Only one way to find out!

[Clock ticks]

[George and Harold]

Three... [Clock ticks] two...

[Clock ticks]

[George]

Here it comes.

[Both]

One...

[Ms. Ribble inhales]

[Bell rings]

[Ms. Ribble]

Uh, class dismissed.

[Harold]

So, no homework?

[Ms. Ribble]

What?

[George covers Harolds mouth with his hand]

[Harold]

Nothing.

[George]

Unreal. Homework gone!

[Harold]

What do we do now?

[Mel-evator]

Same as always. Whatever we want!

[Male announcer]

Free time!

[Mel-evator]

Lets carve some grains!

[Male announcer]

Free time with friends! The fun never ends. You've got friends and you've got free time, and that means with your friends that free and friendly with your friends and free time friendly, free time, friends, yeah, friends! Thats right! It's all friendly, free, and sand-tactic!

[George]

That. Was. Epic!

[Harold]

Which part? That Piqua has sand dunes or that Melvin rocks?

[George]

Both! Buddy, we got rid of homework! We should celebrate!

[Harold]

Yeah, with a comic that tells the world of our heroism!

Comic: Captain Underpants and George and Harold the Heroic Hammering of the homework-headed horror![]

[Comic narrator]

Once, there was these cool and super-buff guys, George and Harold who did not like homework at all. "We hate homework!" and "Me too!" So did the other kids, especially the one who had a skeleton hand. She was like "I can't play volleyball!" And she couldn't. So the very buff guys went back in time to stop homework from being made up in the first place. Shoop! Zoom! Back in time! Pow! They landed in Ancient Egypt, right infront of a pyramid, home of the god of homework, for real! "I made up homework! You must bow down!" "No! We're here to make you undo homework and junk!" and he says, "Nuh-uh! It's my thing." And he turns into a hydra monster with a bunch of heads! He starts to eat them! "Ah! A head is eating me!" "Ah!" Luckily, Captain underpants was also in ancient Egypt on vacation, and got lost looking for the bathroom. "Hey, wheres the bathroom?" Then, buff George and buff Harold are like, "Help and stuff! Help and stuff!" Captain underpants flew to the scene, and punched the hydra! He dropped George and Harold, who were happy. Captain underpants; "I still need a bathroom!" They both jumped at the buff guys, but captain underpants grabbed them just in time! BLAM! Everything smashed together, and the hydra got knocked out! BLAM! [Panting] Whoa. So outta breath. When he woke up, he had amnesia and couldn't remember anything, like, that he had ever thought of the idea of homework, so he couldn't make it up at all! "Yay! We are the winners." Said George and Harold, and the girl with the Skelton hand was all better, and she made the volleyball team! Captain Underpants; "I still need a bathroom! Tra-la- Oops..." [Fart sound] The end.

[End of comic]

[George]

Hey guys, new Captain Underpants comic here! Form a line! No pushing.

[Harold]

Gooch, here, take the comic, it's free

[Gooch]

I... don't know what you're talking about, so I'm just gonna go somewhere else.

[Harold]

Gooch? I don't get it. It's like they don't even want the comic.

[Mel-evator]

G.I. Bro! Hairpiece!

[George]

Hey... Mel-evator! Do you want to read our comic?

[Mel-evator]

Comic? Whats a comic?

[George shrieks]

[Harold]

Wha- What?!

[Both scream]

[Scene cuts]

[Harold]

No homework and no comics? Is there anything more weird?

[Narrator]

Yes there is. A red-lipped batfish.

[George]

How did getting rid of homework get rid of comics?

[Explainer guy]

Vell, once you remove the stress of homework, the brain no longer craves the release of homework by joy-amines, which are produced specifically by comic books.

[Harold]

So, we got rid of comic books?

[George]

Yeah... And if we wanna bring back comics, we got to...

[Harold]

What?

[George]

We got to...

[Harold]

Say it!

[George]

We gotta bring back homework!

[Both]

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

[School bell rings]

[Narrator]

George and Harold weren't alone in misery.

[Mr. Meaner]

I coulda been yeah yeah yeah surgeon! Just needed two more years of high school, four years of undergrad, four yeah yeah years of medical school, and three to ten years of residency. Yeah... Yeah... Yeah...

[Narrator]

It turns out, that the happier the kids were, the more depressed the teachers were, even Mr. Krupp.

[Mr. Krupp]

[Sobs] [Looks at a falling leaf] Thats me.

[A comic flies by Ms. Ribble]

[Ms. Ribble]

Hm. Hmm? Homework? Home... work? Homework! Homework! [Cackles] Miserable, painful, torturous homework! [Cackles] Homework! Oh-ho-ho, yes!

Chapter 6: Five heads are badder than one.[]

[Narrator]

Soon, all the teachers were drooling at the idea of homework and how it could make students miserable.

[Ms. Ribble]

We could make them read at home!

[Mr. Meaner]

And do squat thrusts at home! Yeah, yeah, yeah.

[Ms. Ribble]

We'll spoil all their free time!

[Ms. Ribble, Mr. Meaner, Ms. Hurd, and Mr. Rected]

[Stomping up and down] Homework! Homework! Homework! Homework! Homework! Homework! Homework!

[The floor breaks as the create a hole and trample Ms. Anthrope and make another hole in the floor crashing through the sewers as a printer crashes on top]

[Lots of screaming and yelling]

[Narrator]

Whaddya get when 5 teachers fall into a vat of rubber cement... with a copier? I don't know, but it looks bad.

[Electricity noises]

[Ms. Ribble]

[Grunts] Ow. Ugh.... [Cackles]

[Multiple other teachers emerge from the copier and cackle]

[Except for Mr. Meaner, who is a butt and farts]

[Narrator]

Meanwhile, in the treehouse, George and Harold faced the toughest decision ever.

[George]

What do we do? We don't want homework.

[Harold]

But we want comics!

[George]

I wish there was some crazy thing that could happen that would take that terrible burden of this decision off our shoulders!

[Narrator]

Luckily, we're very good at doing that.

[Ominous roaring]

[George]

What. Was that!?

[Children whimpering]

[Homework Hydra {Ms. Ribble}]

Read nine books tonight!

[Screaming]

[Homework Hydra {Mr. Rected}]

Do 500 word problems by tomorrow! {Mr. Meaner} Yeah, yeah, yeah-

[Kid]

Woah, is that a butt?!

[Homework Hydra {Mr. Meaner} farts]

[Harold]

Thats homework hydra from our comic book!

[Homework Hydra {Ms. Ribble} Cackles]

[George]

Maybe we should stop putting monsters in our comic books... Eh, thats never gonna happen.

[Harold]

Nope.

[Homework Hydra laughs wickedly]

[Gooch]

Please! No, no, I'm prone to paper cuts!

[Roaring]

[Jessica]

Are we being graded on this?

[Homework Hydra {Ms. Ribble}]

Yes. You get a 'T' for 'atrocious'!

[Jessica]

Ugh, but that starts with an A! [Pencils shoot into her hair] AAH! MY HAR!!

[Homework Hydra {Ms. Ribble} Cackles]

[George]

[To Harold] We'll get help. Captain underpants! [To Mel-evator] You stay here and try to survive!

[Mel-evator gasps]

[Mel-evator]

Can we talk about this?!

[Harold]

Mr. Krupp! Mr. Krupp! [Bell dings] Oh come on, everything changed in the school except that!?

[George snaps his fingers]

[Nothing happens]

[Lots of finger snapping]

[George]

Why isn't he turning into Captain Underpants? WHY AREN'T YOU TURNING INTO CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS?!

[Mr. Krupp]

Sigh.

[Harold]

Wait. There are no comic books in this world, which means we never created Captain Underpants!

[George]

You're right! Which means we never turned him into Captain Underpants!

[Harold]

Which means we gotta remake Captain Underpants fast! But how?

[Narrator]

Bu rushing through Captain underpants' origin story. Thats how!

Chapter 7: The super quick Captain Underpants origin story![]

[Harold]

Hypno-ring. Gimmie that!

[George]

Super power juice. Gimmie that!

[Harold]

Look at this!

[George]

Drink this!

[Narrator]

And Mr. Krupp was once again, Captain Underpants!

[Captain underpants]

Ta-la-laa!!

[George]

Wow. That was good.

[Harold]

So good!

[George]

Captain Underpants, there's a multi headed monster burying kids in homework!

[Captain Underpants]

Ooh, that sounds bad. Did you call the police?

[George]

No! We called you!

[Captain Underpants]

Oh, right! Even better! Tra-la-laaaaa!

[Roaring]

[Narrator]

Warning: The following scenes are so violent and inappropriate that we're presenting them in 'Workbook-o-rama'. You have until the end of this scene to complete your work. No eating, no cheating, no preheating. And... begin.

In order to beat the Homework Hydra, should Captain Underpants:

A. Jockstrap jam

B. Propose marrage

C. Copy his face

or

D. None of the above

[Captain underpants screaming]

[Harold]

Captain Underpants, your waistband!

[Captain Underpants]

Yes, I have one!

[Harold]

Use it!

[Captain Underpants]

Excellent idea! Thanks for the tip!

[Triumphant fanfare plays]

[Homework Hydra cackles]

[Captain Underpants]

High-ho, underwear! [Homework Hydra breaks through the underwear] That didn't work at all! [Harold gasps] Woah! [Grunting] Never fear, preshrunk cotton is- [Groans] No match for this butt!

[George]

Wow! they're really going to town on Captain Underpants!

[Harold]

Yeah! Theres no escape from that butt! What are we gonna do!?

[George]

I got an idea! C'mon!

[Tools whirring]

[Harold]

Almighty Hydra, we have built this immaculate teachers lounge to satisfy your demaAAAAHN-

[Captain Underpants grunts]

[George]

What else can we do!?

[Mel-evator]

Guys, check it out - Camouflage! It's like I'm invisible! Watch! Hey, teach-loaf! Butt-stache! Boom!

[Captain Underpants]

Now I know why hotdogs hate buns! [Screams] Ough!

[George]

Thats it. Teachers love laser dots as much as they love homework! All we need is a bunch of lasers, and they'll pull themselves apart!

[Mel-evator]

I got a bunch of lasers! Nya!

Chapter 8: Hydra like me now.[]

[George]

Whoo!

[Harold]

Yeah!

[Mel-evator]

Uh-huh!

[George]

Lets hit it!

[Captain Underpants]

Tra-la-laaaa!

[Epic fight scene]

[George]

Yes!

[Both boys laugh]

[George]

Yes!

[Homework Hydra growls]

[Epic chase scene]

[Epic victory scene]

[George]

Its working! Everybody, point in the middle!

[Explosion of colour]

[Harold]

Ugh, what is this?

[George]

Mm... Toner!

[All the teachers cough as they walk out of the cloud of toner]

[George and Harold]

Yeah! Woo-hoo!

[Harold]

All right! That was awesome!

[George]

Yeah. I wish teachers turned into monsters every day.

[Harold]

They kinda do...

[George]

We better clean this up.

[Mel-evator]

I'm on it! [Sprays hose everywhere] Sorry!

[Harold]

Man, he really is cool!

[George]

And strong! Normally it takes three firemen to handle one of those!

[Mel-evator struggles, hosing the water on Captain Underpants instead, turning him back into Mr. Krupp]

[Narrator]

And as we all know, water turns Captain Underpants back into Mr. Krupp.

[Mr. Krupp]

What is- AH- [Lots of 'Oh-ing' and 'Ah-ing']

[Mel-evator]

Sorry!

Chapter 9: Homework is where the heartburn is.[]

[Ms. Ribble]

And this is called 'Homework', an idea I got from a 'Comic Book', made by George and Harold. I think you're going to hate it as much as I love it.

[Students head creaks as they stare at George and Harold with pure hatred]

[George and Harold]

What?

[Narrator]

Everything was back to normal. Except Melvin, but George and Harold knew that wouldn't last.

[George]

Hey Melvi-rama, it's been fun hanging with you.

[Harold]

Gonna miss cool you.

[Mel-evator]

Why you bro-nuts acting all cray? [Looks at homework] [Starts panting]

[Narrator]

Because the return of homework triggered the return of mean, petty, awful Melvin.

[Melvins sunglasses fly off his face and shatter]

[Melvin]

Perhaps you neanderthals are unaware that you are not transparent. Move!

[Scene cuts]

[Harold]

So, we're officially the jerks who invented homework.

[George]

It's offical. It's on Iffypedia.

[Harold]

Don't worry. We can just change it.

[George]

But more importantly, we're the heroes that saved comics!

[Harold]

Yeah!

[Episode leaves panning out of a scene of a comic titled 'The heroes that saved comics!']

[Episode ends]
