"I was very considerate of the original book material when it came to making the show, but everything that I've done with the show is really based on either something that's in the books, or the spirit of the books," executive producer Peter Hastings told in 2018. "And so, certainly Dav Pilkey has always had this fondness for telling stories in an interesting way, in a different way. In turning the medium inside-out, and really expressing his creativity with the characters themselves. And then just with the way that he tells the story. So that was what I really land with when it came to expanding it. So it's this new part, but coming out of the original spirit of the books."

The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants 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, Dayci Brookshire (Home; Adventures with Tip & Oh) as Jessica/Dressy, Evan Kishiyama (Mickey and the Roadster Racers) as Gooch, David Koechner (The Office; Anchorman) as Mr. Meaner, Nolan North (Spirit Riding Free; Young Justice) as Dr. Shifty Fitzgibbons and Secunda Wood (Fast & Furious: Spy Racers) as Moxie Swaggerman.
