Here’s the official description:

When mean Principal Krupp and evil boy-genius Melvin make Halloween illegal and institute“Hall-no-Ween,” George and Harold team up with their friends to hack their favorite holiday, creating 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. DreamWorks The Spooky Tales of Captain Underpants:Hack-A-Ween tra-la-la’s its way to Netflix October 8.

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.

If you’ve been keeping up with the franchise, you would know that the upcoming special on Netflix isn’t much of a surprise. The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants animated series debuted on Netflix on July 13, 2018. The third season was released on July 19, 2019. So, you can understand why a special was created for fans.

And for those who don’t know, this kid-centric franchise includes queer representation. One of the leads, Harlod, is gay.
