In the first season, George and Harold discover that the space agency P.O.O.P.S.I.E is giving one lucky school, a chance to embark upon a trip to space through a competition. The best friends pull out all the stops to make sure that their school, i.e., Jerome Horowitz Elementary is crowned the winner. Well, the school transforms into a space-ship called “school-ship,” and in no time, the students launch into space, along with Captain Underpants.
In space, George and Harold are bewildered when they discover the truth of their mission. They are deployed on a quest to mend a reprobate satellite. Things take a dangerous turn when everyone except Krupp gets sent into hibernation mode. Throughout the season, the kids have to deal with a lot of challenges like destroying mind-controlling sirens, fighting off diabolical Biglyans, and other monsters. They also befriend some doppelganger aliens and ultimately emerge victorious in their mission.
In season 3, we can expect the kids to accompany Captain Underpants in the future, where everything is out of order and messed up. In the third season, George and Harold might have to tackle futuristic hurdles that can endanger their existence.
